About Marfa

About this typeface

Info

While stylistically born in the hot metal typesetting period, Marfa was designed in a high-speed era of no time to lose. Initially, Marfa was a simply sturdy, utilitarian typeface of three modest weights known as Gothic No. 6, drawn by Fabian in homage to early American gothic typefaces. It made its first appearance in projects by early adopters like Other Means, Dan Solbach, and NODE. Marfa matured with the guiding hand of Seb McLauchlan, who collaborated with us to extend the font into a full family with corresponding Italics and a Mono counterpart. Seb also created small caps and old style figures for the set, to appease 19th century printers and designers.

“BETA TYPEFACES” EXPLAINED:
The type world spins so fast these days. It makes us want to slow down our own release speed, allowing for our fonts to surface a little more slowly and carefully. To turn down the speed of the publishing carousel, typefaces in our Beta space are available by "request only" prior to their official Retail release, which means if you're interested in using them, just let us know.
