Series 3: Coming September 1, 2017


An English Alphabet of Endangered Animals.


Type Hike was created at the intersection of two loves: typography and nature. An adventurous spirit wanders through mountain valleys and explores serifs in search of something unseen. One of the greatest privileges of an adventurer is to share the outdoors with the animals who call it home. This series pays tribute to the great beasts of our nation who are painfully close to extinction. We call them by name, merging the strengths of their species with the power of typography. Our goal is to help protect these beasts because words alone will not be enough.
