Type63 currently exists on social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook.To be able to showcase longer features on designers and their works, publish explorative articles, and host font downloads, we hope to raise funds for a website that can serve as a more formal space online for Filipino type design and typography.You could help us reach this goal with your financial support. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated.
Type63 exists because of and for the Filipino type community. After a year, it has become more than just an online catalogue–it has evolved into a public and connected space where we can ask the whos, whats, whys and hows of Filipino type and its community–and one voice is not enough to sustain it.Contribute by helping out in any way you can.Do you have any ideas that you think will help the Type63 community? Do you want to create posts about a subtopic on type? Do you have an article about Filipino type that you would like to share? Do you have the skills and time to help manage its Instagram account or website? Are you interested in looking for designers? Or are you up to mentoring designers who are new to type?
