Timmons NY Font
TIMMONS NY has been graciously donated to the BuyFontsSaveLives campaign by designer Matt Willey in honour of his father Nick who was taken by cancer in 2011. This narrow and muscular headline font, designed by Matt with assistance from A2-Type’s Henrik Kubel, was originally conceived for a Jazz FM booklet created by Willey in 2012. Currently working at the New York Times, Willey decided to refresh the typeface and deploy it as the principal headline face in the NYT magazine special edition, ‘Walking New York’, which was published in April 2015 (see spreads below and read more about this special issue here). The font’s robust, angular letterforms made a huge impact on the stark black and white layouts.
