Frequently Asked Questions
Who and what is Continental Type Co.?
What do you offer?
Continental Type Co. will sell exclusively the typefaces developed by Winston Scully & Scott Biersack. We will also be taking custom type commissions and offering workshops (corporate and otherwise). For custom inquiries & workshop bookings please email us.
Why did you start Continental Type Co.?
Short answer: We really wanted to make type and collaborate.
Long answer: We'd been friends for 4+ years and we were both attending Type@Cooper on opposite coasts. We decided to bring our learnings from the program into the real world! Since we both come from a background of lettering & graphic design, we wanted to bridge the gap between the world of type and lettering / graphic design to unify the two disciplines.

What else do you do?
We both offer a wide variety of things such as: lettering for advertising & editorial, logotypes, and graphic design.
Do we really need more fonts?
Actually, this is all a performance art piece. Death is the only escape.
Seriously yes, we actually do! To quote Tobias Frere-Jones: “Typefaces are solutions, and we keep having more problems.”
What other names do you go by?
The Type Offices of Scinston & Wott, WhatFontIsThat Co., WhatPenIsThat Co., Conti Co., CTC, ConTyCo, Those Two Guys, and pretty much anything else you can think of to get our attention. We're not picky.
