Fuck Typesetting

Why?
Why?
Why?

After being involved with the intern programs of two different agencies I worked at, I realized that not enough students were trying their hand at handmade type. To help spread the joy of hand lettering as opposed to typesetting, I created the "Fuck Type" Instagram account. I initially planned to post one new, original rendition I made every day, but after a few days people started sending me their own.

On January 26, 2018 I hit post #150 and had planned on ending the account. After I mentioned it, one of the contributors decided they wanted to keep it going and volunteered to be the new administrator. When I started, I never thought I would make something that people enjoyed enough to keep alive once I was ready to move on.
