Three Six in use – TYPO Labs identity

The identity for the first TYPO Labs font technology conference, an offshoot of TYPO Berlin, has been designed by Alexander Roth for FontFont using MuirMcNeil’s FF ThreeSix 30 type system.

LCC Postgraduate Shows 2015

The directional offsets used in our identity for LCC Postgraduate Shows 2015 (see below) form the basis of animated GIFs for screen-based applications – the example shown here is for use on LCC’s flat screen information display system.


LCC Postgraduate Shows 2015

External signage, part of our identity for London College of Communication Postgraduate Shows 2015, has just been installed on site at the Elephant & Castle.

The core of the identity is built from two of the bespoke modular typefaces created for LCC Summer Shows, offset by the same interval in four directions (up/left; down/left; down/right; up/right) overlaid in the same colour for external signage (fluorescent orange and white) and in overprinted colours on printed items.

The identity will be featured in full on our site at a later date.

ThreeSix in use – 1974 Clock

Designed by Chris Jackson and Nick Kapica, the ‘1974’ clock is made from 3mm ABS with custom 3D printed hands. The numerals 1; 9; 7; 4, which are part of the clock face, use MuirMcNeil’s FF ThreeSix 31. The typeface was chosen by the designers ‘for its geometric clarity and its visual similarity to the CNC cutting paths that informed design development’.

The 1974 clock can be purchased at the Northwards Design store.


TwoPoint in use – The Fitchburg Alphabet

Catherine Griffiths has used MuirMcNeil TwoPoint for her ‘U’ on the front page of the Sentinel & Enterprise (Fitchburg, MA) daily newspaper ‘Alphabet Project’. Curated by artist Anna Schuleit Haber and commissioned by the Fitchburg Art Museum, the project ran from 13 July – 11 August 2015.

Twenty-six typographers were invited to contribute one original letter each to this project around which daily news and found urban stories are arranged.

Griffiths combined three TwoPoint ‘U’s – the magenta set upright, the yellow tilted one way, cyan the other, with the request that the newspaper avoided printing text over the magenta U.

‘This work of art is a limited-edition, daily experiment that explores visual language systems, the transport of text, and the shaping and meaning of news, both local and non-local. The project spans twenty-six days and highlights art, poetry, and news-stories that appear, not inside the paper but on its front page. The art is the newspaper, and the newspaper is the art.’ Fitchburg Art Museum.
