Have you ever wondered what sparks a designer’s passion? For Julien Fincker, the answer lies not in a flash of light, but in the quiet hum of the printing press and the smooth glide of a skateboard. This talented type designer is celebrating a major milestone – five years as a typeface designer and the associated partnership with MyFonts and Monotype!

To mark this occasion, we’re taking you on a unique journey through Julien’s world. Forget the sterile, white walls of a typical design studio. Julien invites us into his creative space, a place where the echoes of his early skateboarding days mingle with the inky scent of fresh fonts.

In a captivating Foundry Story video, Julien reveals how his design career took a sharp turn from skateboards to scripts. It’s a story that underscores the power of the written word. After all, as Julien himself says, “A picture is worth a thousand words, but only the written word gives you the right context.” This philosophy is at the very core of his passion for typography.

But Julien’s love for type goes beyond the digital realm. His studio is a testament to the enduring beauty of traditional printing techniques. Here, woodcuts are meticulously crafted, and fonts come alive on the press, each impression a unique piece of art.

To celebrate this anniversary, Julien’s entire font library is getting a makeover – a price-cut makeover, that is! For a limited time (until April 19th, 2024, exclusively on MyFonts), you can snag individual fonts and entire families at a cool 40% discount.
