About Typebase

Typebase is a project by Bureau.Donald, the Amsterdam based studio of Donald Roos. Typebase was originally initiated by Donald and Robert Jan van Noort (Pankra), just after graduated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in the Hague in 2001. The site was launched in 2002, after hard work and learning HTML.

Typebase became popular at (type)design students and teachers. Due to their work as designers Donald and Robert Jan didn’t had time anymore to keep Typebase up to date. But in 2011 Donald found out that the site was still being used, although the content was a little outdated. So he started making plans for a total updated and a redesign. Working during nights and in weekends, it took several months to complete this mission. At the end of April 2012, nearly 10 years after its first release, the new version saw the light.

The new version contains a lot of new and update hyperlinks to typographic websites and is optimized for mobile devices, by combining WordPress and jQueryMobile.
