Barry Deck Fonts

I began creating typefaces in early 1988 as an MFA student at CalArts. There wasn’t a lot of variety in fonts available for the Mac at the time, so I figured I could make my own. Once I got my hands on a copy of Fontographer, I stayed up all night, learning how to use the software. In the morning, I had a font, which I named Barry Sans, to get that over with.

In the following year, I would design a handful of typefaces and leave them on the computers in the Mac lab at school. The following year, I designed Template Gothic, released by Emigre in 1992.

Here are some typefaces, I’ll be adding more.
