P22 Type Foundry
P22 Type Foundry is a digital type foundry and letterpress printing studio based in Rochester, New York. The company was created in 1994 in Buffalo, New York by co-founders Richard Kegler and Carima El-Behairy. The company is best known for its type designs, which have appeared in films and on numerous commercial products. The P22 Type Foundry retail font collection specializes in historical letterforms inspired by art, history, and science that otherwise have never been available previously in digital form. P22 works with museums and foundations to ensure the development of accurate historical typefaces, and with private clients to create custom bespoke fonts.
P22 also offers special curated collections, including Lanston Type Co. (LTC) and Hamilton Wood Type Collection (HWT), all under the P22 Type Foundry umbrella.
One potentially non-obvious scenario that I would file under this heading of ‘New Design’—is when the final product would be something genuinely new, even if the source material is not.
