Galapagos

The Galapagos Typeface is based on the Galapagos Game invented by Felix Salut. It was used as a prop for his 2014 short film Shut Up I’m Counting of which the script turned book, published by Spector Books, was awarded the Walter Tiemann Prize the same year.

For the Galapagos Typeface, Felix Salut and Dinamo composed the same 9 modules into 7 alphabets of different styles: Rounded, Straight, Angular and their crossings Rounded-Straight, Straight-Angular, Rounded Angular and Rounded-Straight-Angular. The result is a total of 70 individual typefaces: each style comes in 5 weights, with Grid and No-Grid versions. Using Stylistic Sets, all characters can be moved up and down along the vertical grid.

Just as the Galapagos Islands are home to a vast number of unique species, the Galapagos Typeface encompasses a range of characters whose forms evolve from one another.

This release is accompanied by the launch of the App, which allows for a playful entrance into the modular Galapagos cosmos. Users can take pictures and compose layouts on top of them, switch between Galapagos’ type variations by hand or by shaking the phone before sharing the design on social media.

And more! Felix Salut is releasing a three-dimensional re-edition of the original Galapagos Game. It consists of 45 stones (Polyester, 7,5cm x 7,5cm x 1,5 cm) featuring the 9 basic elements to be combined in numerous ways.

Select Typefaces

Select Licenses

Print

It allows you to install the font files on a Desktop Computer, in order to design images and documents for print and screen. Its price is based on the total size of the company who is licensing the typeface (and not on the amount of computers on which the font files are installed on).

Web

It allows for embedding the font files into a website. The license is priced per one domain and traffic (views per month), and has to be upgraded once traffic increases.

Social Media License

Add-on to the Print License. It covers the use on channels like Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and Youtube. It is a one time fee and based on the total amount of followers across ALL your channels combined. The first 100.000 followers are for free.

It allows for embedding the font files into a Mobile App. The license is priced per app, traffic, and platform (Android or iOS) and has to be upgraded once traffic increases

Broadcasting

It allows for any kind of broadcasting bigger than Social Media, such as Streaming (Netflix, Amazon, HBO, SKY), TV, Cinema, Video Advertising, Video Billboards or Video Clips longer than 1 minute. It is a one time fee. The price depends on region (Europe, USA, Other) and time.

It allows for embedding the font files into an eBook or PDFs or other documents which you share with your customers or collaborators. The license is priced per amount of titles.

Corporate

A one-time fee which grants you globally unlimited Print, Web and App use. Continuously having to monitor and re-evaluate traffic or upgrade licenses (if a company grows or more websites are being added) is a process bigger companies usually like to avoid. Therefore some of them choose to go with the Corporate License.

Subcontractor

Owners of the Corporate License usually combine it with a Subcontractor License – it allows them to share the typeface with any of their subcontractors during their working relationship.
