Monsterkind Guest Illustration #5: J.N. Wiedle

There are only 27 hours left to pledge to the Monsterkind Kickstarter!

We’ve hit a total of four stretch goals in the run of this campaign, and we’re steadily heading towards the next!

Our next guest illustration is by J.N. Wiedle!

Jones is the super skilled and brilliant mind behind Helvetica, a cute comic about skeletons and the afterlife. It was recently picked up by Hiveworks, and is now updating weekly! I highly recommend checking it out.

You can also follow Jones on twitter or support them on Patreon!

This project is almost at its end. Thank you all so much for pledging, reading, spreading the word, and all your kind and supportive messages. This has truly been a wonderful and uplifting experience.


Hey guys! If you’re a backer on my patreon, yesterday I posted some sketches of the next Helvetica page that you can check out! In the upcoming weeks I’ll be posting more cool stuff for backers: a sneak peek at a super cool semi-secret project I’ve been working on!!

And if you’re interested in fashion and HELVETICA CHARACTERS IN FASHIONABLE CLOTHES, (MUCH LIKE THE IMAGE ABOVE,) well, THEN YOU’LL PROBABLY LOVE THE HELVETICA FASHION BOOK I’M WORKING ON!!! Backers get exclusive access to see the illustrations I’ll be producing for that.

Thank you all so much for supporting me and supporting HELVETICA! (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑


Monotype Launches Haas Unica™

Today sees the launch of Haas Unica™ Monotype’s revival of a typeface that has attained almost mythical status in the type community. 

Originally designed as a hybrid of Helvetica, Univers and Akzidenz Grotesk, Neue Unica® was an attempt to create the ultimate sans-serif. 

Unica went missing under a heap of legal disputes and has never been available as a full, digital typeface. Until now. 

Toshi Omagari of Monotype has created a full digital family with 9 weights for 147 languages.
