TypeTrust is offering a family of fonts designed by Chris Bilheimer and Micheal Stipe for REM albums and tour materials. The REM Collection consists of three typefaces: Accelerate, Orange and Tourfont. They are available for $15 each or $30 for the entire Collection. I love the fact that they’ve released these formerly project specific fonts.
Chris Bilheimer spoke at AIGA South Carolina in March of 2007. He’s a great guy and amazingingly talented. Although the bulk of his work is for REM, he also works with bands like Green Day and Weezer.
