About Marais

Just say “Muh-ray”

Introducing the first Friends of Type… type.

Marais is the first commercial typeface release by Aaron Carámbula, co-founder of Friends of Type after years of making fonts for his clients and for himself.

Marais was conceived and primarily executed at the Cooper Union’s Type@Cooper Extended Program, under the tutelage of Jesse Ragan.

As the first two styles are released and the rest of the family is developed, we'll send little, occassional notes to your inbox.

People Sayin’ Stuff

“I like the look of it.”

Paul Shaw, Imprint

“I like the name.”

Matthew Carter, TypeCrit @ TypeCon 2011


While the typefaces will be sold as-is, user feedback will be incorporated, when appropriate, into occasional updates.

License holders will always have access to those updates.

The Completist Clause

Gotta have 'em all? We feel you. Any license you pay for will count towards an upgrade to a more full family package.
