The Extensis Community Blog
Laura Worthington is a calligrapher and typeface designer in the Pacific Northwest. She crafts original, lovingly handmade letters which form the base of her typeface designs, primarily for use in titling and display. Since we last spoke with her in April of 2014, she’s been busy. She’s taught hand lettering workshops at the School of Visual Concepts in Seattle, created a smooth version of the Charcuterie collection called Boucherie, and published the Adorn family of fonts—her largest typeface collection yet. An experience she calls, “an insightful and inspiring journey into the world of contemporary calligraphy.” Laura also explored new ground, designing the masculine-inclined script face Voltage, and publishing her first ever free font, Milkshake—available at Fairgoods.com.

The team at Extensis was delighted to lend a hand to at-risk youth in our home city of Portland. We delivered a trunkful of gifts and cash donations to the Transitional Community School. CTS is a private school dedicated to the needs of children of homeless families and people experiencing chronic poverty-related crises.
Last month, 11 Mo Bros volunteered to take part in Extensis Movember Madness. We’re excited to announce the winners and share the results!
First, a huge thanks to all the Extensis Mo’s who participated. It’s great to be able to contribute to a worthwhile cause at your expense.
Movember is behind us, and there are at least 11 sinks with freshly shaven whiskers left behind. There are also an equal number of wives who will kiss their husbands for the first time in a month tonight (despite having to clean up the whiskers).
Finding fresh fonts—an endless effort
If you’re a designer and you’re reading this blog, chances are you love typography and fresh new fonts. If you’re like me, you call out fonts you like and dislike in everyday use for your loved ones (They love this, trust me… just ask my wife). You bookmark good “new free fonts” lists. You hoard way too many on your hard drive.
