TEHAUS Typeface

I’ve been working on a new typeface — off and on, mostly off — for more than a year now. At one point I even used it to try my hand at a linoleum carving. Thanks to a little downtime, I was able to clean up a few rough spots over the past couple of days and publish it on Creative Market.

A few letters from an old American Type Founders specimen book provided the base for a logo concept that was never used. I eventually fleshed out the rest of the characters into the set above. It’s built on a modular system, so modifying letters and eliminating empty space created by the letters “L” and “T” is made simpler.
