Mota Italic Type Catalog 2015
12 October, 2016

This was our second printed catalog featuring all our fonts (including a few advanced previews). There were 1500 copies printed and they went much quicker than expected, and now we are out of them.

You can also view this catalog in its entirety on issuu.

Typodarium 2014 Unboxing and Showcase
27 August, 2013

The folks behind the unbelievable Typodarium calendar have done it again. For the sixth edition, hundreds of designers have graciously typeset 377 fonts for this neatly packaged project (edition of 10,000 copies).

As a thank for for contributing, during the first four years of the project participating designers received a complimentary copy of the calendar. But suddenly in 2013, MAGMA Brand Design and Verlag Hermann Schmidt said it was too expensive to show their appreciation to the designers. So they did nothing.

For 2014, they attempted to avoid some of the hate mail and bad karma received in 2013 and again sent the contributors a free calendar. Some are undoubtedly thankful for this gesture, but I for one am not impressed. Yes, it’s nice to have a copy, but to me this one is useless because it doesn’t come with a box… Maybe that sounds trite, but the box is a unique selling point of this calendar – you are supposed to tear off the specimens each day, and collect them in the handy box. I have done exactly this since 2010 and have actually kept all of them. For 2014 I will neither be using the calendar nor submitting fonts to Typodarium again.

Mota Italic Postcard №2

Early 2013’s latest printed type promotional piece. This is another A5 postcard with an even more packed selection of current typefaces. This will certainly be the last postcard where I attempt to show all of our fonts on just 1/2 a sheet of paper.

Mota Italic Postcard №1

This A5 postcard was made in 2011 as a small promo item before TypeCon. It has a few updates to the (upcoming) type offerings, and was easier to carry from Germany to the US than the full specimen books.

Mota Italic Printed Specimen №1
25 May, 2013

Mota Italic's First Specimen Book

This was Mota Italic’s first printed specimen book printed in 2010. At 40 pages, with one typeface per page, the concept was quite unconventional making it look different from the typical type specimens one sees. While the novelty of its originality took it far, it did somewhat lack in the area of proper marketing and showing some of the features and infos that potential customers might have been interested in. Still, it was fun to make at to read through.
