About

Type Services is a small type design practice established by Harry Cresswell, based in Hamburg, Germany. Currently the project explores texture and imperfection in hand drawn typography.

I’m interested in designing free, retail and custom typefaces for a wide range of creative application.

I’m currently in the process of designing my first premium typeface, a utility offering called TS Sans. Though this one is paid, I will continue to provide a collection of display fonts free of charge.

This site is built using Hugo, the Go based static site generator. The site is hosted directly from a GitHub repository and served on the JAMstack by Netlify.

Type is currently set using system defaults, meaning it will render differently depending on your operating system. I’m using a fluid type mixin developed by Mike Riethmuller to make type responsive for different screen resolutions. Sizing is set using 2 modular scales, 5:6 — minor third for smaller devices and 3:5 — major sixth for desktop. Resize your browser to see it in action.

All images on the site are hosted with Cloudinary which handles automatic responsiveness, where different images are serverd depending on the device.

If you have any questions you can reach me on Twitter, I’d be happy to help.
