Matt Willey Timmons NY typeface


Timmons NY is a bold, compressed, caps-only headline font in one weight with multiple glyph alternates. It was graciously donated to the BuyFontsSaveLives (BFSL) 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 in 2012 and later reworked for the ‘Walking New York’ issue of the New York Times Magazine, published in April 2015. The font’s robust, angular letterforms made a huge impact on the stark black and white layouts.

In 2020 Matt became a partner at Pentagram in New York and donated a further 5 type families to BFSL. An updated version 2.0 of the font was released in late 2020 with assistance from Diana Ovezea.

All BFSL typefaces sold will raise much needed funds for Cancer Research & MacMillan Cancer Support; your purchase could literally save lives. Thank you.
