“In 1997 Cyrus Highsmith bought a box of magnetic letters from a variety store. The colorful, plastic shapes inspired him to make Icebox, a type family that doesn’t need a refrigerator. For the official release, it has evolved from its playful origin with influence from new things, like a manhole cover, and can be taken seriously. This angular sans serif is available in three weights and a bonus Magnet style.” — Font Bureau, 2013
Originally released by Font Bureau in 2013. Reissued by Highsmith’s own label Occupant Fonts in 2018.
