At Cliff Ross, typeface design is an art. We believe the single greatest thing about art is the freedom to be inspired by elements in the world around you, and expressing those ideas through whatever medium you choose. We interact with type all day and we truly appreciate the power and beauty it possesses. Each letterform is carefully sketched by hand and then brought to life digitally. Creating a unique and beautiful typeface that's also usable takes time, expertise and fine-tuning.

The second collection of Philly Fonts were just released this past Spring. A third collection is currently underway. This round will include the 3 winners of our "Philly Font Vote" in addition to other Philly Fonts. Just like 'Swampoodle', 'Soda Tax' and the rest of the Philly Fonts, each new typeface will embody Philadelphia in it's own unique way.

Cliff Ross has offices in Philadelphia and downtown Easton, PA. We're proud to be the original architects of the "Philly Fonts" concept and are excited to see that collection continue to grow. We're also thrilled to offer our custom typeface design service. We're passionate about helping businesses further develop and strengthen their brand. Contact us to find out how our custom font design service can take your business to the next level.
