Essay by Jose A Garrido

Jose A Garrido is an art director, graphic designer and founder of multidisciplinary design studio Noem9 Studio. He is also the man behind today's font of choice, Essay.

"Essay was born from an afternoon looking at old book covers in Berlin in September last year," Garrido comments. "Inspired by Herb Lubalin, athletics and rock music, its details relate with speed and punk styles but keeping the main structure intact. Works perfectly as main, bold typography combined with some serif typefaces."

Essay is available to purchase from the Noem9 Studio website, where it is currently being offered at a introductory rate of $10 until 20 Feb 20 2014.
