about / colophon

Silly Type Foundry is an initiative of graphic and type designer Tariq Heijboer aiming to share unusual and strange typographic projects with a spontaneous character. Starting from Tariq's own fascination for the power of language and the alphabet, the Silly Type Foundry displays works of various artists and designers with a similar interest. They are all an interplay of image and type, visual and verbal. Most projects at the Silly Type Foundry were initially designed for a specific project and are now revisited and made accessible as a font. Silly Type Foundry just started but we continue to extend the font collection and are open for contributions.
