Adult Human Male
Adult Human Male is the typefoundry of Malaysian designer Alex Hy, who is located in Berlin or Ireland. His Twitter account says that he is New York, Paris and Coolock. His Dafont account calls him Irish. Whatever. Alex has two aspects, a commercial one, expressed in his commercial foundry Adult Human Male, and a free one via his Squack site on Dafont.
The commercial Alex created the grunge stencil face Butterworth (2011), the hand-drawn Teksi (2011), the monoline squarish family Ebdus (2011), Valis (2011, futuristic), and the thin avant garde monoline face New Slang (2011). Gordito (2011) is a graffiti style bubble font that says Smurf.
In 2012, Alex published the poster caps typeface Areaman, Stink Lines (multilined typeface) and Penang (art deco signage face seen on Penang by the creator). Straights Light is a beautiful pair of bilined all caps faces. Dale Kids is a children's book typeface. Hokkien (2012) is an art deco typeface with Chinese influences. Mister Mustard is a chubby rounded art deco typeface. Barkley (2012) is a textured caps face with a chalk board feel. Liner Notes (2012) is a bilined hand-drawn typeface. Bartleby (2012) is a hand-drawn all caps display font.
The free font foundry Squack has the hand-printed faces Barker Allcaps (2012), Scrapist (2012, sketched), Billy Boy (2011, 3d), Quito Chicken (2011, 3d), Fred Wild West (2011, a grungy western face), Coolock Black (2011), Zapftig (2011), Ringworm (2011), Suicide Draft (2011), National Granite (2011, a 3d stone chisel face), Whiskey Fingers (2010), Wank Hands (2010) and Middle Man (2010), and the irregular faces Zapftig (2011), Shock Corridor, Pollo Asado, Middle Woman, Ghost Words, Late Puberty, Parrannoyed (2010, ransom note face), the hairline face Rexic (2011), Black Grapes (2012), Chump (2012, hand-printed capitals), Areman OT (2012), and the grungy Skidmarks (2012).
Typefaces from 2013: Salas (a chunky cartoon face), Rabid (a crayon font), Strokin (a great brush face---part charcoal part paint strokes), Bevel Hands, Bunk (a layered beveled type system absed on a monoline fat rounded sans, Bunk Base 2), Spengler (inline face), Vastra (Bauhaus style, organic), Swingers (curly and cartoonish), Chump Change, Treves Sans (crayon face).
We read that the fonts are designed by EircomTest. Aka Squack, MiddleMan and Alex H.

Affolter und Gschwind AG
Werner Affolter ran a phototype and printing company in Basel, Switzerland, called Affolter und Gschwind AG, Fotosatz&Reprotechnik. In 1981, Affolter published an extensive catalog entitled Letterama that showed over one thousand alphabets. Few of those were original, so I suspect he acted as a vendor of sorts, but at least a couple seemed original, or were claimed to be original or exclusive: Guigoz, Moby Dick. Moby Dick was revived in 2014 by Nick Curtis as Call Me Ishmael NF.

Alphabet Soup (or: Michael Doret)
Michael Doret is a commercial hand lettering artist in Hollywood, CA, but born in New York in 1946. A graduate of The Cooper Union, he was interviewed by MyFonts in 2011. He worked at PhotoLettering as an assistant of Ed Benguiat. Klingspor link. Behance link. Veer writes: A graduate of the Cooper Union, Michael has run his own design studio for many years - first in New York City - and currently in Hollywood. An eight-time winner of the New York Art Directors Club Silver Award, Michael is a specialist in logos and letterforms. His unique typographic vision blends elements of lettering, illustration and graphic design. The inspiration for his work has come from such diverse sources as matchbook covers, theater marquees, enamel signs, early and mid-20th century packaging, and various other artifacts of this great land of ours. Although for much of his career he executed his work in traditional media, he now works almost exclusively in a digital format. In 2006, he set up his own foundry, Alphabet Soup.
Andrea Malpede (Nocive Laboratory, Naples, Italy) works in London. He created the ornamental alphabet called Maxicanito Nocive Font (2011). He also did Baboletor (2011, a superposition of basic geometric shapes), and Busy (2011).
Graphic designer in Santo Tirso (Porto), Portugal. In 2011, he created the hairline sans face Wayne Thin, the counterless fat slab face Rotula, and the fat round Wayne Black. He also made Virtude (2011, a Garamond revival). In 2012, he added Urbe (3d face).

Andrew Byrom was born in Liverpool, England in 1971. After Graduating from the University of East London in 1996 he opened his own design studio and worked for various clients including Penguin Books, The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters, The Industrial Design Centre, Time Out Online and The Guardian Newspaper. Around this time he also began teaching graphic design at The University of Luton and Central Saint. Martins. Byrom moved to the USA in 2000 to teach at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL. He has recently been commissioned to design typefaces and type treatments for Elle Decoration, The New York Times Magazine, McGraw-Hill, and Turner Classic Movies. In 2006 he moved to Long Beach to take up an Associate Professor position at California State University, where he is currently the Area Head of the Graphic Design Department. He created the experimental typeface Interiors (2002), about which AIGA writes: Interiors (3D type) is a collaboration between type designer Andrew Byrom and designer Joel Wolter. It was originally conceived as a digital font (Interiors) and was inspired by an old wooden chair in Byrom's office that, when looked at from a certain angle, resembled the letter h. Using the three-dimensional principles of this simple form, and closely adhering to type design conventions, 26 letters of the alphabet were drawn and generated as a font. The characters were then constructed in three dimensions using tubular steel into full-scale furniture frames. Because the underlying design concept is typographical, the end result becomes almost freestyle furniture design. Letters like m, n, o, b and h can be viewed as simple tables and chairs, but other letters, like e, g, a, s, t, v, x and z, become beautifully abstract pieces of furniture. He also made the distressed font Bloodclot, the stencil family Byro Stencil (free), Byro Sans, 1byrosquare (2000), 2byroround (2000), ByroBlock Stencil (2000, stencil), Concussion (dot matrix with various size dots), Easy Vie, Venetian (2009, like Venetian blinds), Fresh (1995, scratchy type), Ply, Rage, St. Auden, Bandaid (2006), 3D Dot Matrix. He divides his time between teaching, designing for various clients and playing with his sons, Auden and Louis. He has recently been commissioned to design typefaces and type treatments for Elle Decoration, The New York Times Magazine, McGraw-Hill, and Turner Classic Movies. In 2006 he moved to Long Beach to take up an Associate Professor position at California State University, where he is currently the Area Head of the Graphic Design Department.

Carlos Winkow is a version of his original name, Carl Winckow. He designed the brush script typeface Reporter (1938, the Wagner foundry, a brush face with many alternates for the glyphs), Gong (1945, Johannes Wagner, a chalk script face; Jaspert mentions the date 1951), Alcazar (FT Nacional, 1944, an inline 3d titling font), Electra (FT Nacional, an almost avant-garde sans family, which includes the ultra thin Estrecha Fina weight), Iberica (FT Nacional, 1942, an open shaded inclined 3d lineale), Nacional (1941, Nacional: a calligraphic roman in old medieval Spanish style with Clasico Nacional 1 and Clasico Nacional Negro weights; see Madrid RR by Red Rooster for a digital version), Cursiva Rusinal (FT Nacional: this is identical to Reporter except in the alternates). Roller (1997, Pat Hickson, ITF) is based on Iberica.
Comments on some digital versions: Romeo (Font Bureau) takes some cues from Electra and says that it is a spectacular art deco sanserif with an unusually fine condensed series. A standard non-chalk version of Gong was done by J. Wagner in 1967, and was published as Jowa Script (Jowa Schreibschrift), which in turn provided inspiration for Iova Nova (2007, Profonts). Lucia Walter revived Winkow's 1931 text face Elzeviriano Ibarra in 2011. Winkow's Numantina (1940) was revived by Nick Curtis as Numancia NF (2011). Steve Jackaman's Casablanca URW (1997) is based on Electra.

Dada or Dadaism is a cultural movement that began in Zürich, Switzerland, during World War I and peaked from 1916 to 1922. The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature-poetry, art manifestoes, art theory-theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. For many participants, the movement was a protest against the bourgeois nationalist and colonialist interests which many Dadaists believed were the root cause of the war, and against the cultural and intellectual conformity - in art and more broadly in society - that corresponded to the war. Dada was anti-art. It is believed that Dadaism started in October 1916 in Zurich where Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, Tristan Tzara, Jean Arp, Marcel Janco, Richard Huelsenbeck, Sophie Täuber, along with others, discussed art and put on performances in the Cabaret Voltaire expressing their disgust with the war and the interests that inspired it. In the Netherlands the Dada movement centered mainly around Theo van Doesburg, most well known for establishing the De Stijl movement and magazine of the same name. The dadaists developed some art techniques such as collages, assemblages (3d collages), photomontages, and readymades. Another encyclopedia. German page on Dada's history. Summary. [Google] [More] ⦿

Dom Hans van der Laan (Leiden, 1904-1991) was a Dutch architect and Benedictine monk. After a few years of architectural studies, van der Laan developed a system of principles for proportions. Using this theory Dom Hans van der Laan designed buildings and even created a typeface, the Alphabet in stone. This typeface is based on the Roman carved stone capitals that were used in the first century AD. Designed using strict 3d rules (which he called the Plastic Number), his lettering can be found at the abbeys of Oosterhout and Mamelis.
The Alphabet in stone face was digitized in 2011. That project can be seen here. Contributors include Willem Noyons, Maarten Dullemeijer and Rob Stolte. The font family can be bought from the Dutch foundry Autobahn. [Google] [More] ⦿

He writes for Recognition Review as Dr. Type and gives seminars on typographic design. A type consultant, he was at one point lecturer on typographic layout and design for California State University at Los Angeles. As Trogman explains to Harold Lohner about Roberta: I originally hand cut this font in 1962. It is based on a Belgian restaurant sign. I named it after my daughter Roberta. Many Mexican food companies used this font, but they didn't know it was from Europe. Dan Solo was going to digitize it for me, but he retired from the font business last year. Just give me credit for the design and it is all yours to do what you want. Trogman's picture. Roberta D was remade by Ralph M. Unger in 2003 for URW. Trogman, however, is upset with URW: URW++ has been warned by me to stop selling typefaces I originally licensed to Berthold Fototype, Stempel, Bitstream, Mecanorma and Letraset. They have never responded to my accusation of piracy. He is a graduate from the University of California at Santa Barbara. [Google] [MyFonts] [More] ⦿

It seems like it has some fonts by Gianni Sinni such as LetteraTrentadue (1995), created as an homage to the Olivetti typewriter (with a Cyrillic version to boot, see here for the Russian typewriter font). Cut Up (1995) has letters obtained by cutting and pasting parts of letters. New Tuscany (2001) too has letters created by a montage process---it is a surprisingly elegant atmospheric font. Kiub (T-26, 2007) is a wonderful rounded blockish shadow display family. Dada Sans (2006) is a basic simple sans family. In the 1980s, Sinni was art director of the magazines at Westuff and Emporio Armani. Other URL. [Google] [MyFonts] [More] ⦿

MuirMcNeil Design Systems
MuirMcNeil Design Systems is a project-based collaborative between Hamish Muir and Paul McNeil, est. 2010. Their activities are focussed on exploring parametric design systems to generate appropriate solutions to visual communication problems. Hamish Muir is a founding principal of 8vo (1985-2001) and co-editor of Octavo (1986-1992). He currently combines work as an independent graphic design consultant specialising in editorial, information and systems design with teaching part-time at the London College of Communication. Paul McNeil is a London-based independent graphic design consultant specialising in type, information and systems design. He is a Senior Lecturer in Postgraduate Graphic Design at the London College of Communication and lead developer, MA Contemporary Typographic Media.
They have several parametric and modular software syystems for typography and type design. These include 20-20 (done in 1974: a modular design idea in the spirit of FontStructor, but without any active software), Interact (done in 1994---grid-based parametric screen fonts), Three Six (an experimental optical / geometric type system consisting of six typefaces in eight weights. It explores the possibilities of using systematic principles to generate geometric typeforms which are distinctive at large point sizes but which can also be read at smaller sizes in bodies of extended text), Four Two (an extension of Three Six). The Three Six project led to a number of multiparametric dot fonts. It was published by FontFont in 2012.
In 2014, four commercial modular and pixelish typeface families were published, Panopticon (a system of layered 3d geometric typefaces), Intersect, Nine (Metric, Mono) and Interact. In that series, the nine-weight geometric almost-typewriter typeface Nine Mono (monospaced and monoline) stands out.
Muir helped Dalton Maag with the development of Tephra (2008), an experimental multi-layered LED-inspired family.
Mike Yanega has the ultimate listing of multiline fonts. Let me group them for you:

Newlyn.com (was: x&y)
Miles Newlyn (b. 1969) graduated from St Martins College of Art, London, in 1991. He worked with various London agencies, including Wolff Olins. x&y in London was Miles Newlyn's web site where you could buy his creations from 2002-2004. In 2004, he set up Newlyn.com.
Creations: Luvbug (a 3D font, now at Umbrella Type), Ferox (a blackletter face, 1995; see also Umbrella Type), Becker (LED font), Tonnage and Bugini. At Emigre, he made Democratica (Roman with a Greek touch, 1991), the curly Missionary (1994), Sabbath Black (1995, a blackletter font), and Tonnage Sans (1996, an homage to David Harris's Chromium typeface). He designed a set of six typefaces for David Carson to use in Raygun Magazine. He is currently developing Verona. Modena (2008) is a corporate type family designed by him.
Nick Curtis (b. Chicago, 1948) lived in Texas from 1952-1997, and lives since 1997 in Gaithersburg, MD and Alexandria, MD. From ca. 1990 onwards, he has been designing fonts, first for free, and then commercially. He had a great reputation as a "revivalist" type designer, with a particular interest in retro fonts and art deco types. In 2003, his site had become too popular and too expensive to maintain, and thus he went commercial as Nick's Fonts. In 2013, he stopped making fonts, and donated his collection of rare books and type material to the University of Virginia. Interview. Free downloads at TypOasis. Complete list of names and other info, maintained by Sander de Voogt. Interview in which we learn about his fondness for Corel Draw as a type design tool.
Near the end of 2012, he posted this comment on his web site: Fifteen years ago, I embarked on a wonderful voyage of discovery, when I created my very first font with Fontographer 3.15. My maiden voyages were, frankly, rather clunky and amateurish, but I have been told that they showed promise. Well, sure enough, thanks to the diligent (and patient) efforts of Ilene Strizver, I polished up my craft enough to sell my humble efforts---first as a sideline business and, since 2006, as my full-time job. In total, I have produced over eleven hundred fonts---almost five hundred of them freeware fonts, which I conservatively estimate have been downloaded and enjoyed by over three million people worldwide. Unfortunately, this past year has brought a series of unanticipated setbacks, culminating in the loss of my wife's beautiful mind and soul to the scourge of alcoholism. In an effort to generate extra income to cover the expenses for her long-term care, I have proposed a number of, I believe, innovative ways to revamp the online font business; unfortunately, those efforts have fallen flat, primarily due to the professional font community's abject fear of crossing the $165 million Elephant in the Room. I even offered a special discount rate of 75% off retail price for full-time students of Typohile Forum. To date, there have been zero takers. Hell: even the webfont kit of one of my own fonts which I purchased from myfonts.com turned out to be an empty folder. Talk about a run of bad luck. Which leaves my with you, dear readers. If you or someone you know has had fun or made a buck from my humble efforts throughout the years, please donate whatever you can---even a lousy dollar would help---to help me out. I would greatly appreciate it.

On MyFonts, he says this about himself: Nick's Fonts is a modest little foundry dedicated to the preservation of our rich typographic heritage. Most of the foundry's designs are based on authentic historical sources, gleaned from the massive collections of the Library of Congress. If you are looking for a font that captures the essence of the Wild West, the Gay Nineties or the Jazz Age, look here first: if it is not in the catalog, it will be soon. [Google] [MyFonts] [More] ⦿
