REM Type

TypeTrust just announced the release of the REM Collection, three fonts designed by Michael Stipe and Chris Bilheimer and engineered by Neil Summerour.

Michael Stipe bought an orange plastic stencil to begin a project in
which he stenciled on a shirt every city he visited that year. After
stenciling the alphabet on many types of paper and fabrics, they and
Chris turned the finished letters into this font .

This font was created for REM’s 2003 Tour by making a standard stencil font, then reattaching the bridges.

Accelerate was created for REM’s 2007 album Accelerate. The goal was to
make a font as bold as the band’s new material, boldness on the edge of
losing form.
