How A Font Reinvigorated An American City’s Design Community
Chattanooga in Tenessee has created its own official typeface called Chatype.
The city of Chattanooga in Tennessee has officially created its own typeface called Chatype, the first custom typeface in the US made for a municipality.
The new font was designed by Jeremy Dooley of Insigne Design and Robbie de Villiers of Wilton Foundry, with help from D+J designers D.J. Trischler and Jonathan Mansfield, and is currently being used throughout the city government.
Chatype raised funds via Kickstarter last year and was proclaimed as the city’s official typeface in August this year.
