What is Weathersbee Type?

This is the online shop for typefaces, fonts and other type-related items created by me, Derek Weathersbee. It is for the most part a one-man operation, meaning that much has been invested in every part of what you’re seeing, from the typefaces themselves to the method in which they are presented.

Who am I?

I’m a graphic designer by trade, and I also build websites. I occasionally write (okay, write blog posts) about things that I believe I have something to say about, and I’ve also been an instructor of design and development at Amarillo College for 2 years. While working with all this type, I discovered I really enjoy creating typography. I’ve been working with it for a decade, and have been drawing my own letters for as long as I can remember. In 2010, I built a typeface that I thought would be useful and one whose type I hadn’t seen in a professionally-made font. So I created Franchise. It was through this project that I discovered creating typography is something I’m good at. That first typeface has been used by just about every large company in the US, and hundreds of other businesses.

I won’t tell my entire life story here, but I will say this: I have a wife and two children, I live and work out of Amarillo, my home town, and I play a lot of sports and music and like to make everything I can into a competition. It is likely that you will see references to these things in my work and writing.
