Arrow Type

The type design & development studio of Stephen Nixon.

Arrow Type is named for symbols ( ← ↑ → ↓ ) that are highly useful and present all around us – from public wayfinding to digital user interfaces – yet missing from many traditional font character sets. Arrow Type seeks to explore and uncover other such underserved facets of type, from the aesthetic to the cultural to the technological. Work is in progress for future releases, including Recursive Sans & Mono, a variable font family for code & UI commissioned by Google Fonts.
