Alpengeist FontA type foundry is a company that designs or distributes typefaces. Originally, type foundries manufactured and sold metal and wood typefaces and matrices for line-casting machines like the Linotype and Monotype machines designed to be printed on letterpress printers. Today’s digital type foundries accumulate and distribute typefaces (typically as digitized fonts) created by type designers, who may either be freelancers operating their own independent foundry, or employed by another foundry. Type foundries may also provide custom type design services.
Jukebox was created by Jason Walcott in 2003. The foundry began as an independent type foundry in 2000 under the name ‘JAW Fonts’. Jason became interested in type and typography while studying Illustration and Graphic Design at Kean College of New Jersey. After graduating in 1997 he moved to Southern California, where Jukebox is now located. Jason’s original designs are often inspired by the whimsical and ingenious designs of hand lettering, found in retro signage, old movie titles, television, and even product labels. Many of these sources serve as the starting point for the development of full typefaces. The Jukebox library also includes a small selection of digital revivals based on older photolettering/metal typefaces. ALPENGEIST FONT is one of the fonts designed by Jukebox foundry and represents a blackletter typeface with dynamic flourishes.
