Phonetikana: coming soon?

You may remember one of our slightly crazy typographic research projects, Phonetikana, which investigated how to embed English phonics into a Japanese Katakana script. It gained a lot of a attention a few years back, was even nominated at D&AD, etc etc.

Anyway, after another flurry of online interest (including 200,000 shares on one website) we're finally progressing the idea further, and are speaking to multiple type foundries about how to turn it into a viable and publically available font.

If you're interested to find out more, sign up at the bottom of this page.

Here it is featured on Japanese website Tabi Labo.

Sorry to do this but this is ©johnson banks design limited 2009/2015. Have to try and protect this stuff.

Here's a project we should have protected better...
