My name is Roger Ridpath. I run fontfuel.com and the Font Fuel Foundry. Font Fuel's home, in the form of this website, is now alive and kicking. I put this website together to serve as a central location for all my type related work. You may have been exposed to some of my work through photoshopisland.com or ridpathcreative.com. Fonts and typography has always been handled a bit different than my other work. My type work is never the result of a related client design project. I do not design type on a deadline like much of my other work. I create type work differently I felt like it needed it's own unique place to live.
Why call my type foundry Font Fuel? As a graphic designer, I often see how the right type/font can add energy to a design and make it communicate much clearer than the wrong choice. In that sense type is like a design fuel that makes designs GO!
My type designs often start out as something I want for my own graphic design projects. Sometimes I run across vintage type that just is not available in digital font form so I decide to make it myself. My favorite type designs are pure experiments in geometric shapes. Many of those don’t see the light of day but they are a fun exercise. You can learn more my my graphic design, photography and web development services at ridpathcreative.com
I hope you enjoy using my type designs as much as I like make them. Let me know if I can help you with anything.
