Review; Friends of Type - Website
Good to be Back by Aaron Carambula
Friends of Type is a brilliant website for typographic, computerised and hand-rendered lettering inspiration.
FoT features original typographic design and lettering – fresh visual content – practically every day, by the four primary contributors (Aaron Carambula, Erik Marinovich, Dennis Payongayong and Jason Wong). Posts are meant to log ideas, express the publishers, and inspire the other contributors and the viewers of the website.
"The four of us have worked together at various institutions and in various roles, recognizing in each other a shared interest in quality design and, in particular, in well crafted type and lettering, but with unique perspectives and talents towards achieving that standard."

"In September of 2009 at 7pm EST Erik sent Aaron a sketch. Aaron said, “You should post that!” To which Erik replied, “Where?” So we joked about some names, Aaron bought a domain, designed and built a site, and there you go. 8 hours later (excluding dinner), at about 4am EST and 1am PST, Friends of Type launched."
