About

Official launch of Ligature!
Published:
Ligature is a collective that provides a broad knowledge of vintage and modern typography. Our members are from different parts of the world, but share the same love for typographic design through current work and collaborative projects. If you're in need of some typographic inspiration or just want to keep up with our members all in one place, follow us to stay up to date on our work within our collective.
 
------
 
A ligature is the joint of two letters to form one character. We think the ligature well represents us because of the connection between our members that form this typographic forward design collective.
ENJOY!

''No entry. Exit only. Caution. Keep out. Private property. No hunting. No fishing. No skateboarding. No loitering. No parking. No tresspassing. Cameras not permitted. Violaters will be prosecuted. Beware of dog. Danger, high voltage.''
