Typographer Gerry Powell designed Onyx for American Type Founders in 1937. It is a more modern version of Modern Roman Bold Extra Condensed and is basically a super condensed version of Ultra Bodoni. Although it may be tough to read when small, Onyx is useful and elegant where space is at a premium.

“Team Hawk” and “Girl Scout Troop 1810 Becomes International Spies in D.C.” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!
Family and close friends gathered at the No Buts About It 5K last month to raise money for colonoscopies and to increase awareness about colon cancer. The group united in honor of the customer’s father, who passed away this year after a long 6.5 year battle against colon cancer. They proudly showed their support for the cause by rocking their new, custom Team Hawk t-shirts.
Girl Scout Troop 1810 made the trip from Indiana to Washington D.C. to visit the International Spy Museum. To complete the trip, the girls turned to CustomInk to create a custom t-shirt design to then wear at the museum. The group received tons of compliments from passerbys, all wanting shirts just like the ones being worn by the girls. Great job designing, Troop 1810!

House Industries released Neutra, a modern and geometric typeface developed by Christian Schwartz, in 2002. It is widely applied in the print, but doesn’t get used nearly as often on the web. Neutra’s cool and clean style can be seen in the signage for Shake Shack as well as in advertising material for fast-food chain Wendy’s.
