In 2016, Alisa Nowak, Julie Soudanne and Jean-Baptiste Morizot co-designed Graphico (Indian Type Foundry): Its letterforms are industrial and square-sided.

In 2013, he published the EPS vector set YWFT Pipe and writes: It's not a flatbed truck, it's a series of tubes, and this totally tubular Pipe will carry you down the water slide to bubble town before you can say "pop art." A little touch of Nintendo, some extra olive juice, and a green Jell-o chaser make for this bubbling EPS vector handset, containing two different styles: flat and glossy/reflection. In 2015, a regular font family was published. King (2013) is an alchemic EPS forrmat typeface family.

Craig Ward

Craig Ward is a British graphic designer and art director wjho moved to New York City in 2009, where he set up Words and Pictures in 2011. In 2015, he created the experimental typeface Fe203, and wrote: To form the glyphs, a tiny amount of ferrofluid was placed between two glass plates and subjected to a combination of spinning vertical and horizontal magnetic fields. The result is an array of complex hieroglyphics and shapes - each one as unrepeatable as a snowflake - that simultaneously call to mind ancient indigenous markings or symbols from science fiction.

Designer of nice typographic examples, such as his Hairy Futura (2008). He designed the fat didone display typeface Lovechild (2009) and the spurred typeface Killer (2013). Other typefaces: Go Vote (2012, a brush poster and modular typeface for the American elections), Dark White (didone), Epitaph (alchemic), NM Serif (2015, for the branding of Dior's new perfume, Sauvage), England World Cup Kit (2018).

James McNaught

Edinburgh, UK-based designer of the alchemic typeface Evolution (2013). It was an experiment for his thesis: Based on Paul Renner's Futura (1928), it begins as archetypal Roman letterforms and gradually disintegrates into abstraction and illegibility. The aim was to represent how current typographers have taken what we recognise through association & cultural agreement to be our alphabet and modified it through ornamentation, subtraction or deviation to unreadable extents. This typeface, in its journey from perfect alphanumeric characters to illegible symbols, brings the notation of language to paradoxically its most abstract and most core forms: coded visual marks, decrypted into linguistic and semantic meaning.

Jeremy Tankard Typography
[Jeremy Tankard]

Jeremy Tankard established Jeremy Tankard Typography in 1997, after corporate design work at Addison Design Consultants and Wolff Olins. This Londoner made some extraordinary and daring font families. In many of his typefaces, Jeremy mixes upper and lower case letters for more impact. A list of his typefaces:

  • FF Disturbance (1993, a unicase based on Sabon).
  • Alchemy (1998). Mystical. To be used with Enya's music in the background.
  • Blue Island (1999, Adobe).
  • The Shire Types (1998, consisting of Shire-Cheshire, Shire-Derbyshire, Shire-Shropshire, Shire-Staffordshire, Shire-Warwickshire, and Shire-Worcestershire). Shire Pro followed in 2011 and Shire Arabic in 2012. Shire is based on idiosyncratic vernacular lettering seen across Britain.
  • Enigma (1999-2015). A great text typeface family with influences going back o Hendrik van den Keere.
  • Shaker (2000) A sans serif with some flaring.
  • Harmony Greek, a typeface that netted him a Bukvaraz 2001 award alongside the Shire Types and Shaker.
  • Aspect (2002). A typeface with many ligatures and swashes.
  • Bliss (Agfa Creative Alliance). Bliss Pro (2006), a sans family, covers Latin, Greek and Cyrillic ina harmonious fashion.
  • Corbel (2004). A sans family made for Microsoft's ClearType project, for which he received a TypeArt 05 award.
  • Custom designs: Epsilon (a very bold face, supposedly designed for the Düsseldorf branch of Frogdesign) and Harmony (for Telstra in Australia).
  • Kingfisher (2005). A transitional petit-Bodonesque serif family.
  • Arjowiggins (2006). Tankard cooperated with Arjowiggins and design agency Blast on AW Inuit that was commissioned by ArjoWiggins for the launch of the Inuit paper: it is a unicase Latin font inspired by Inuit letterforms. See also at MyFonts. The typophiles are unjustly upset at this sort of typeface though.
  • Trilogy (2009). This extensive typeface family consists of Trilogy Sans Compressed, Trilogy Sans Condensed, Trilogy Sans Normal, Trilogy Sans Wide, Trilogy Sans Expanded, Trilogy Egyptian Normal, Trilogy Egyptian Wide, Trilogy Egyptian Expanded, and Trilogy Fatface.
  • Fenland (2012). A 14-style ink-trapped sans.
  • Redisturbed. A classical unicase typeface.
  • Capline (2014). A bilined all-caps typeface family for titling work. It won an award at Modern Cyrillic 2014.
  • Queezoid (2015).
  • Pembroke (2014). A British geometric typeface family with many weights ranging from Hair to Ultra.
  • De Worde (2017). An italic typeface family in seven weights to celebrate the 60th anniversary of e Wynkyn de Worde Society.
  • Wayfarer (2017). He writes: The typeface was originally commissioned for use with a new wayfinding system for the city of Sheffield in the UK. As Sheffield was the home to the type foundry, Stephenson. Blake & Co. it had been thought that their type, Granby Condensed would be suitable. The Granby family of types was developed during the 1930s as Stephenson, Blake's contribution to the general cashing in of other foundries on the popularity of Monotype's Gill Sans and the geometric sans serifs being introduced by the continental type foundries.
  • Hawkland and Hawkland Fine (2018). A text typefaceC with didone and transitional elements.
  • Brucker (2019). An 8-style angular expressionist typeface family.

Jonathan Martin

Graphic design graduate from Birmingham City University, who is now based in Marlborough, UK. His typeface Two Lines English Egyptian was developed in 2013 for a university project.

[Seymour Caprice]

I like the description of this Catalan foundry at MyFonts: A foundry with a home in Catalunya. Kickingbird font work takes place in the quiet treehouse headquarters near a former Barcelona textile homestead. Font sketches are completed anywhere a notebook is handy... in the cafes of Gràcia, on the RENFE railway or outside the cloisters of Santa Maria del Mar. Font design inspiration comes from many sources. Faded broadside wall manifestoes in Ravel, broken floor tiles washed up on the shores of Vilassar de Mar or from old cigar boxes found at the Mercat de Sant Antoni. For those who know Barcelona, sweet memories. The designer, Seymour Caprice, created the vernacular typefaces Pop Manta (2009: Pop Manta has been described as "Morris Fuller Benton meets Roy Lichtenstein". Benton's 1903 neo-grotesque letter shapes set to a Pop Art beat.) and Locutorio (2011).

Typefaces from 2013: Bathysphere. This is a steampunk sans described as follows: This steam era typeface, created by Gustav Schroeder in 1884, found popular use on soap box labels and tobacco tins during its initial release. Then, later, a successful and stout revival of Gustav's face, named Othello, was carried out by Morris Fuller Benton in 1934, and the typeface's appeal widened to include items such as broadside posters featuring Boris Karloff's Frankenstein. After metal gave way to film type, Gustav's creation experienced a brief fashion moment in the 1960's, but then disappeared entirely, never re-surfacing as a full digital typeface. With the release of Bathysphere, the typeface comes full circle, having been completely redrawn from scratch using Gustav's original specimens. The new extended language support establishes the typeface firmly in the modern era, while Bathysphere's refinement of subtle blunt corners restores a deep-sea grace to this iron giant. However, Nick Curtis's Iago NF (2011) is also based on Othello, and is close in execution.

In 2016, Caprice designed Trop Magus and writes: Trop Magus is a rugged typeface following in the tradition of Ramon Llull and Jean Jannon. Llull's illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages inspired many later Alchemical texts in the Renaissance. And it was during this era, in 1615, that Jannon cut the matrices for Typi Academiae. Sixty-five astrological and alchemical symbols are included.

[Peter Rempel]

Peter Rempel (b. 1958) is a Winnipeg-based calligrapher. Nice graphic about classical roman types. He designed some exquisite shareware fonts: PR Uncial Creepy (2010), PR Agamemnon Bold (2008), PR-Uncial (2003), PR-UncialAltCapsExtended, PR-UncialAlternateCapitals (1998), Demo-ofGabrielCondensed, Demo-ofGabrielRegular, Demo-version:Gabrielextended, PR-CelticNarrow (1998), Magickal Signs, PR Runes (2000), PR Rune Stones (2000), Pi Rho Runestones (1998), PR Astrological (1998), PR Compass Rose (2007), PR Viking (2007; +Alternates) and Pirho Herakles (1998, an Etruscan-style or Greek simulation font).

He writes about himself: educated in music composition and visual design. In his family home, there were many wall plaques with German Bible verses, rendered in a variety of gothic and fraktur lettering styles. In the 1980s he discovered the art of calligraphy, first through the speedball lettering textbook, and later by joining the calligraphers Guild of Manitoba. He has studied a variety of lettering styles, but his strongest interest is in the letter styles of the Middle Ages, starting with the German Fraktur styles he knew from childhood, and extending back, into uncials, runic shapes, and the Classical Roman Letter. The Chancery cursive, or Italic hand, which to many people is synonymous with calligraphy, never held much interest for him. He released his first shareware fonts in 1996.

In 2011, he designed the commercial typefaces PR Mapping and PR Stars.

Storm Type Foundry
[Frantisek Storm]

Storm Type is a major Czech foundry that offers the inspiring work of Frantisek Storm (b. 1966, Prague). Most typefaces are made by Storm himself. The typefaces:

  • Aaahoj: a ransom note font.
  • Abald (2005): Abald adds to the number of "bad-taste" alphabets as seen on faded commercial inscriptions painted on neglected old houses.
  • Academica: Josef Týfa first published Academia in 1967-68. It was the winning design in a competition for scientific typefaces, announced by Grafotechna. It was cut and cast in metal in 1968 in 8 and 10 point sizes in plain, italic and semi-bold designs. In 2003 Josef Týfa and Frantisek Storm began to work on its digital version. The new name Academica distinguishes the digital execution (and modifications) from the original Academia. In 2021, Frantisek Storm added Academica Sans.
  • Aichel: originally designed for use in architecture (in this particular case for a UNESCO memorial plaque for a church built by Jan Santini-Aichel on Zelenà Hora). It has a stone-chiseled look.
  • Alcoholica
  • Alebrije (2015). A 42-cut exaggerated cocaine-driven typeface family with instantly recognizable v and w that have slabs on their baselines.
  • Amor Sans and Amor Serif (2005).
  • Amphibia (2016). A lapidary typeface family.

Anselm succeeds it after ten years of evolution, it is a sober, reliable laborer, immune to all eccentricities. It won an award for superfamily at TDC2 2008. It covers Greek as well.

In 1986, the metro started using Helvetica): this typeface is eminently readable!

  • Regula Text and Regula Old Face. Regula is named after the secular monastic order Regula Pragensis. Initially, the digitized font (regular old Face, which is now free) had jagged edges and a rather narrow range of applications until the summer of 2009, when Storm added text cuts. Regula was a baroque alphabet faithfully taken over from a historical model including its inaccuracies and uneven letter edges.
  • Rondka (2001)
  • Sebastian (2003, a sans with a funky italic), about which he writes: Sans-serif typefaces compensate for their basic handicap---an absence of serifs---with a softening modulation typical of roman typefaces. Grotesques often inherit a hypertrophy of the x-height, which is very efficient, but not very beautiful. They are like dogs with fat bodies and short legs. More# Why do we love old Garamonds? Beside beautifully modeled details, they possess aspect-ratios of parts within characters that timelessly and beauteously parallel the anatomy of the human body. Proportions of thighs, arms or legs have their universal rules, but cannot be measured by pixels and millimeters. These sometimes produce almost unnoticeable inner tensions, perceptible only very slowly, after a period of living with the type. Serifed typefaces are open to many possibilities in this regard; when a character is mounted on its edges with serifs, what is happening in between is more freely up to the designer. In the case of grotesques, everything is visible; the shape of the letter must exist in absolute nakedness and total simplicity, and must somehow also be spirited and original.
  • Serapion (a Renaissance-Baroque Roman typeface with more contrast than Jannon)
  • SerapionII (2002-2003): early Baroque
  • Solpera (digitization of a type of Jan Solpera, 2000)

  • St Croce (2014). Based on worn-out lettering on tombstones in the St. Croce Basilica in Florence, this is a flared lightly stenciled typeface family.
  • Technomat (2006): this typeface takes inspiration from matrix or thermal dot printers.
  • Tenebra: a combination of the Baroque inscriptional majuscule with decorative calligraphic elements and alchemistic symbols
  • Teuton (2001): a severe sans family inspired by an inscription on one German tomb in the Sudetenland

  • Tusar (2004): a digitization of a type family by Slavoboj Tusar from 1926
  • Tyfa ITC + Tyfa Text: Designed by Josef Týfa in 1959, digitized by F. Storm in 1996.

Storm quips: I only hope that mister Justus Erich won't pull me by the ear when we'll meet on the other side. Advertised as a poster sans family, he offers Walbaum Grotesk Pro (2011).
  • Wittingau (2016). A wonderful decorative blackletter typeface family, with a great set of Wittingau Symbols.
  • Zeppelin (2000): a display grotesk
This foundry cooperates in its revivals with experienced Czech designers Ottokar Karlas, Jan Solpera and Josef Týfa.

Theodor de Bry

Theodor de Bry (1528-1598, Johann's father) had been a goldsmith in Liège (in present day Belgium). As a Protestant, he was forced to leave that catholic city in 1570. After living in Strasbourg for several years, he moved to Frankfurt in 1588, where he established himself as a bookseller and publisher. Many of his volumes were illustrated with engravings by his own hand. He was aided in this by his sons Johann Theodor (1561-1623) and Johann Israël (ca. 1570-1611). The de Bry firm issued almost two hundred books, including a renowned series of illustrated accounts of the Americas, emblem-books, and the mystical&alchemical works of Robert Fludd and Michael Maier. He designed the intricate set of caps New Kunstliches Alphabet (1595). In 1596 in frankfurt, they published Human Alphabet. De Bry together with his sons created many non-Latin alphabets as well.

BAQ Roundded led to the ultra-round fat family Yuki (2010; +YukiLined, a stencil version). Hiruko (2008, eight styles) is a rounded sans family in the style of VAG Round. See also Hiruko Pro (2013). A robust geometric outgrowth of this is Ebisu (2010). Hiruko Stencil (2012) is a further extension.

In 2009, some of their fonts, such as Miyagi (paperclip type) seem to survive at HypeForType. YouWorkForThem carries BAQ, Hiruko, Miyagi, Amaya (2009, grunge), Gen (2009, ink spill grunge), Taku and Yume (2009, ultra fat retro).

Walden Font
[Oliver Weiss]

Walden Font (est. 1997) sells historical typefaces&clip-art by Oliver Weiss from Winchester, MA. Walden's site includes a brief history of blackletter, as summarized in the PDF document The Gutenberg Press: Five Centuries of German Fraktur (1997). Typefaces by categories:

  • The nice 14-font package called Civil War Press.
  • The free art nouveau font Jugend WF (2006).
  • Kraftwerk Press (2016-2017), a collection of 25 German industrial fonts emulating the era from 1920-1930:
    • WFBorderBergland, WFBorderLineal, WFBorderLorbeer, WFBorderRauhreif, WFBorderRiesel, WFBorderSaftig, WFBorderSandmann, WFBorderSchnuppe, WFBorderWolkig, WFBorderZahnung, WFKraftwerkOrnamente, WFKraftwerkVignettenFett, WFKraftwerkVignettenLicht. Great borders and ornaments that were mainly revived from Neues Schmuckmaterial (Schriftguss AG, formerly Brüder Butte).
    • WFFettdruck, WFHochdruck, WFNormdruck: Examples of Reklameschrift originally designed in 1908, 1926 and 1920, respectively.
    • WFFetteKrause. Inspired by an advertisement for printing machinery in a 1924 issue of the Hungarian trade magazine Magyar Grafika.
    • WFKaracho: Inspired by a bit of hand-lettering from a 1926 issue of the German advertising art periodical Gebrauchsgrafik.
    • WFLuftpost. Based on lettering samples for sign painters.
    • WFNeueOhioSchrift. Weiss writes: The Brüder Butter foundry in Dresden had a good working relationship with ATF, and thus several American typefaces found their way into the Butter catalog. Among them was Pabst Oldstyle, designed in 1902. Brüder Butter changed the erect peak of Pabst's A to a flaccid one, and distributed the result as Ohio Schrift, starting about 1913. Throughout the 1920s, Brüder Butter marketed the Ohio family through a series of leaflets that put the typeface through its paces in innovative ways. WFNeueOhioKursiv is the Italian companion. In 1922, Brüder Butter added a bold typeface to the Ohio family. This was not an ATF transplant, but a new design by Eduard Lautenbach. It was available with a set of swash capitals, and several curly-cued, lowercase alternates, ideally suited for children's books. Weiss's revival is WFNeueOhioKraft.
    • WFNeueWerbeKraft. Based on Arthur Schulze's Werbkraft (1926).
    • WF Paletti. Loosely based on the popular monoline silent movie script typeface Tango-Kursiv (1913, Ernst Deutsch).
    • WF Vulkan. A loud all caps typeface based on an advertisement in the April 1926 issue of Gebrauchsgraphik.
  • Their Renaissance&Handwriting font pack has nine different handwriting fonts from 1450 to 1700.
  • The Minuteman Printshop set contains 18 colonial fonts: Ancient Black, Caslon Book, Caslon Book Italic, Caslon Swash Italic, Webster Italic, Webster Roman, English Hand, Rev.War Heroes, Signers of the DoI, Colonial Bullets, Daisy Border, Lily Border, Marigold Border, Needlepoint Border, Pine Cone Border, Quilt Border, Rose Border, Tulip Border.
