Thanks to Alex Haigh of ThinkDust for making my day. I love looking though my old 1970s/80s Letraset catalogs, so I’m really excited to see that someone has finally created a digitized version of the Yagi Link Double typeface. Alex has put in hundreds of hours to create the upper and lower case 255 character set which he calls Miyagi.
I just fired up Illustrator and gave the typeface a test drive. It looks great. This makes me want to break out the Letraset catalogs and see what other typefaces I’m missing.
Technical details: 255 character set upper and lowercase, full ascii characters, opentype format compatible with pc and mac, full manual kerning.
You can purchase the Miyagi typeface at Alex’s new foundry HypeForType
