Metastasis

As with everything in life too much of the same thing can make you sick. In the past two decades the Germans have overindulged in the use of Meta. It is everywhere, in airports, on signage, on TV and in corporate literature. Meta has become synonymous with the German middleground. Almost too convenient and easy to digest it has spread like a disease. Metastasis is an unauthorized cancerous variant of the original. It comes in two weights reflecting the stages of the disease: M-0 (curable) and M-1 (incurable).

What are desktop typefaces

A typeface that is sold with a licence to use on your desktop and send artwork files to a printer. The majority of our typefaces are sold as Open Type Format files that are compatible with both Mac and PC. Some are sold as image files as they are too complex to convert into a working typeface. This is made clear on the typeface descriptions but do get in touch if you need any help.

So long as you abide by the licence that covers the typeface, you can do what you like with it. We would love to see how they grow in the wild, do send us pictures!
