Xyz periods

Starting at the end of the alphabet

We’re proud to unveil XYZ Type, our new independent type foundry. This marks the debut of Aglet Slab and Export, two original typefaces, joined by our previous release, Cortado. Free trial versions of every font are available on our site, so we hope you’ll download them and put them to work. We can’t wait to see where they end up.

We owe a debt of gratitude to everyone who saw us through to our launch. Topos Graphics went above and beyond in developing our brand identity, our website, our voice, and more. Brana Vasilić at GrayBits transformed Topos’s ideas into brilliant code and made the implausible possible. And Eric Jacobsen helped us up after a bump in the road.

Lastly, a warm thank you to all our friends and mentors in the type community who have offered us advice and encouragement over the years.

—Ben Kiel & Jesse Ragan, XYZ Type

Slanted 26 special export stencil 1400 xxx

Slanted Magazine feature

Slanted Magazine issue #26 includes a feature section about Jesse, and the deluxe edition of the issue ships with a fully functional stencil tempate for Export. In fact, Slanted’s request for a stencil alphabet for this feature was Jesse’s original motivation for creating a Stencil variant for this face.
