Fresh from the field – Function memento by TDF

4 years ago by


Our Fresh from the Field this week showcases the recent release of Function by Anthony Burrill, as well as the limited Collector’s Edition Woodblock Memento by TDF.

The woodblocks are being sold individually to the highest bidder via silent auction, with a percentage of the profits being donated to bowel cancer research, which we think is a totally worthy cause.

Each block is 15cm (5.9 inch) in height and varying widths dependent on the letterform. They are hand made by Thomas Mayo of London, wrapped in organic tissue paper, and packed in a foam lined luxury kraft box with red foil detailing.

Get in quick to order your own.

Function is a caps only display in Regular and Condensed styles. The typeface was designed as a response to various collected examples of utilitarian and grid-based type. The constructivist influenced typeface offers a range of alternate characters and supports 85+ Latin based languages.

In celebration of Function’s launch, Anthony has also created a limited edition Letterpress Poster available for sale on the TDF site.







And, if you’ve got new work that you’d like to share with our Design Assembly audience, email Zoë for details.
