Four New Fonts by Eko Setiawan Are Now Available on Type Department, and They’re Pretty Special

Eko Setiawan delivers not one, not two, but four delightful new fonts to sink our teeth into. Here’s the roundup…
ED Begonia, a new blackletter-inspired font by Emyself Design, now available on Type Department.
ED Begonia

Designing under the name Emyself Design, Eko is an Indonesia-based graphic designer who’s been creating fonts since 2018. Following a phase of experimentation with text fonts, Eko now focuses on display faces with a unique, distinct look.

The creative’s latest offerings, ED Daffodil, ED Sonar, ED Vacaville and ED Begonia, are no exception. Pulling on fascinating threads of inspiration and research, Eko says ideas can pique quickly and spontaneously whilst scrolling through Instagram, or they can arrive more slowly, as integral parts of the creative process.

Eko’s modern take on a blackletter, ED Daffodil, a groovy style font with a fractured look, germinated in the same environment as ED Begonia. The two fonts are essentially parallel meditations on the same concept, showing off Eko’s prowess and skill, and sparking a ton of cool ideas for branding, visual identities and editorial layouts.

ED Daffodil is equipped with stylistic alternates, standard ligatures and multi-lingual support, whilst ED Begonia, although similar to Daffodil, comes with more alternates and a cool outline style.

ED Sonar, a new italic script-inspired font by Emyself Design, now available on Type Department.
