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 uncover and explore other such underserved facets of design & technology, from the aesthetic to the cultural. Work is in progress for future releases, including Recursive Sans & Mono, a variable font family for code & UI commissioned by Google Fonts.
