Type Worship is 2
This month sees Type Worship’s second birthday! Writing about type and lettering plus hunting for those design work gems has been tremendous fun. I had no idea that this blog would prove to be such an enjoyable catalyst for learning about and meeting so many incredibly talented people.
It’s been great to receive such a positive reaction from everyone, especially the community on Tumblr.
To coincide with this, CreativeBloq has published my article, 11 Killer tips for a successful Tumblr Blog, describing how Type Worship grew from a handful of followers and how to ensure your blog Tumblr stands out from the crowd.
Thank you to all those who have followed, liked, reblogged and supported. And thanks to these designers too for use of these twos:
Neon “t” for Tumblr
I spotted this simple, flickering, neon animated gif on Tumblr earlier (I’m as attracted as a moth to good neon letters). I noticed that it had gathered close to a whopping 100,000 likes and reblogs [now over 200,000!]. It’s attributed to vicforprez from California, who specialises in making these animated files.
Type Worship is joining forces with 8 Faces Magazine.
Today, I am incredibly excited to announce that Type Worship is to become the official 8 Faces blog.
This means that in addition to the inspirational typography and beautiful letterforms we’ll also be sharing exclusive content from Elliot Jay Stocks’ coveted typography biannual, featuring mini-interviews with big-name designers, previews of their artwork and sneak-peaks of forthcoming magazine content.
In the last year Type Worship has attracted a staggering 35,000 followers on Tumblr and we’ll continue to publish via their fantastic platform at blog.8faces.com.
Elliot Jay Stocks: “As we were chatting about Type Worship joining the family, everything just kind of fell into place. I’m really, really excited about this partnership.”
This announcement coincides with my 400th post for the blog and with so much still to learn and discover—we’re only just getting started!
I’d like to thank all typography and lettering enthusiasts for your continued support.

Plucky No.5, Final artwork screen-shot
A quick screen photo of the finished Illustrator artwork. A numbered batch of 20-25 will be printed on A1 size archival paper then sprayed (there are silver and gloss elements) and embossed.
After the limited production is complete I’ll be giving some away here on Tumblr and the Type Worship Facebook page, so keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks.
Thank you Tumblr…
A massive thanks to Tumblr for selecting Type Worship to feature in their Typography Spotlight.
