established & sons: font clock.

UK-based design and manufacturing firm Established & Sons has a mission to “build an exemplary representation of British creative excellence”. Stiff upper lip aside, their site is a feast of exquisitely simple, modern, handcrafted must-haves. A total standout, created by one of the site’s founders and directors, Sebastian Wrong, is the Font Clock.

12 different fonts are incorporated in the iconic (and, not at all surprisingly) Brit-invented old skool numeric-flip design. The different fonts appear randomly and create a constantly shape-shifting feeling to the normally run-of-the-mill act of glancing at a clock. The mechanisms inside are designed so that, during a full calendar year, every font will have been displayed with all it’s chronological compatriots for at least 5 minutes each.
