Work smarter, not longer

Microsoft Japan made news recently when the results of its four-day working week experiment were made public.

Attempting to combat a culture of overworking and burnout, the company implemented a four-day working week, and productivity boomed. Employees were also encouraged to have fewer meetings, set a half-hour time cap, and limit meetings to a maximum of five people.

This Typefi meeting has more than five people. So inefficient!

Not only did employees have more efficient meetings and take less time off, but costs declined, and 92% of workers said they preferred the change. Productivity skyrocketed by a whopping 40%, while the offices used 23% less electricity and 59% fewer print pages.

Need a reason to drop everything and take a break? Typefi has produced a custom set of playing cards to help our customers, friends and trade show visitors PLAY MORE!

Designed by Caleb Clauset, award-winning graphic designer and Typefi VP Product, the card backs come in four colours and feature an interlaced roundel inspired by The Third Knot, a woodcut created by German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer between 1490 and 1500 (and which, in turn, was inspired by designs created by Dürer’s contemporary, Leonardo da Vinci).

Get your GAAD on!

May 16 2019 is Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). We’re getting our GAAD on by introducing every designer’s favourite font, Comic Sans, into our logo and tagline—just for today!

Why Comic Sans?

According to the British Dyslexia Association, Comic Sans is one readily-available font that may be preferred by people with dyslexia due to its good ascenders and descenders, different forms for capital I, lowercase l and digit 1, rounded g as in handwriting, and letter-spacing.

Restoring native bushland on the Sunshine Coast

Typefi’s head office is based on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, an area of extraordinary natural beauty and environmental significance.

Our stunning beaches, rivers, mangroves, mountains, rainforests, and eucalypt woodlands support an estimated 2600 plant species and 850 animal species, making our region one of the most biodiverse areas in south-east Queensland.

Typefi’s Australian team members all feel pretty lucky to live and work where we do, so when we started thinking about ways that we can give back to our community and enjoy a bit of team-building, a bush regeneration project was an obvious choice.

On a rather warm and humid morning in late March, we met Megan Jericho, Community Nature Conservation Officer with the Sunshine Coast Council, at a Council reserve alongside Eudlo Creek in Maroochydore.
