Type is visual language.
We’re not really a commercial type foundry. At least not yet. We’ve designed a handful of typefaces and are constantly creating custom type and lettering through the normal work of the studio, and this site is a showcase for those projects. Some day the fonts may be available for sale here, but for now, it’s more of a gallery. (More stuff coming soon!)
Hazen Type is brought to you by Hazen Creative, Inc., a graphic design studio in Chicago, Illinois.
Typeface created completely from bent single lines.
Works In Progress
A rework of the classic Microgramma typeface.
A monospace(ish) font currently under development.
A custom type treatment for Chicago musician/band called Airwest. The name is taken from a defunct airline.
It’s a modified version of DIN Engschrift, with custom characters and an oblique version. Designed for posters shown in a design exhibition.
A complicated, techy logo drawn specifically for onscreen use. Futureness is a gallery of futurist and futuristic images.
