House Industries joins influential designers in receiving a 2012 Design of the Year nomination for its photolettering.com web site from the Design Museum in London. Nominees include the Duchess of Cambridge’s royal wedding dress, a wind-propelled mine detector and Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner.
Photo-Lettering was one of the earliest and most successful type houses to utilize photo technology in the production of commercial typography and lettering. Founded in 1936, Photo-Lettering eventually succumbed to the digital publishing revolution with most of their timeless alphabet styles and propriety composition techniques lying fallow for several decades. House Industries acquired the collection in 2003 and has since been working on a modern practical Photo-Lettering service while maintaining its legendary quality, sophistication and sense of style.
House Industries is known throughout the world for its eclectic typeface collections, elaborate design work and far-reaching exploits into products, textiles and furniture. Through a synthesis of original elements and carefully-curated collaborations, House Industries choreographs visually tactile experiences. Their work is defined by a timeless authenticity that is only achieved with rare aestheticism, fundamental skills and a genuine love for their subject matter.
