13 - Christopher Smith

Christopher Smith

We now have the keys to our new home (Claypots)...but it's in a bad state of repair - and full of the previous owners "junk" - gold dust to us! We are currently wading through boxes of 70's & 80's toys and much inspiration!

Chris Smith - aged 7

As a mark of respect & "homage" to their owner, a young "Christopher Smith" - we thought it would be fitting to kick off the Claypots inspired work with the handwritten typeface, created from scanning Christopher's old school books...we hope he likes them! (if he ever finds this randomness on the interweb!)

We will no doubt be creating new work for a long time - based on our finds!...We should probably start another blog just for the rummaging!...nahhhhh....

This typeface is now unavailable for download - but will be included in the limited edition CD Rom of all 52 Typefaces at the beginning of 2010. To secure a CD Rom, please email us (Phil & Gabi) at you would like to get involved in making a typeface for the project, please email us at : or leave a comment below!


  1. Oh how WONDERFUL to acquire a load of old junk as well as a new - old house! That sounds like heaven to me . . . Will you have time to SLEEP? Lots of love and best wishes ~ Bern x

  2. I think that might be my writing on the clay pot. Well it certainly looks like what my writing used to look like. Where id you scan it from?

please leave some wisdom for Gabi and Phil to soak up!
