About

Alphabettes.org is a showcase for work, commentary, and research on lettering, typography, and type design. Our loose network is here to support and promote the work of all women in our fields. Currently (July 2016), Alphabettes has 157 members from around the world in various levels and areas of activity. If you want to contribute something, e.g. a header image, suggest an article or send us some news for our news round-ups, you can use this contribute form.

We also have a Mentorship Program. More info about that here.

This blog was assembled on a whim by Amy Papaelias and Indra Kupferschmid, who like making and breaking things on the web. The typeface is Elido by Sibylle Hagmann. All authors hold the copyright to their content, work, spelling mistakes and grammar. (As you might tell, many of us are non-native English speakers, but we thought diversity and spontaneïty are more fun than a strong editorial hand.)

The nameplates change fairly often. The current one is custom lettering by Lila Symons. Past headers are saved here.

We’re also on Twitter and Instagram. And if you must, you can email us.
