MuirMcNeil Five is one of a series of stencil type families first published by MuirMcNeil in 2017. It has been extensively revised and republished in three different contours, each in two widths, two optical weights and in positive and negative versions.

Muir McNeil’s typographic design for the Ex Africa exhibition at the musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac was constructed using the MMcN TwoBar type system. The typographic structure is reconfigurable to suit different formats in print, external signage and on-screen.
With the addition of TwoBlock, the MuirMcNeil Two System now consists of 205 fonts across 11 mono-spaced typeface families constructed from a core set of glyphs, mapped to a common grid. Two typefaces can be purchased in family sets or together as a discounted package from the MMcN shop.
Anode completes a trilogy of typefaces produced by MuirMcNeil in collaboration with Natasha Lucas which explore the correspondences between positive and negative spaces in alphabetic forms. In Anode, an interdependent pair of alphabets combine reciprocally to make a holistic design, each containing and informing the other.
