In 2013, she collaborated with Jérémie Hornus and Fabien Gailleul at FontYou on the design of the astrological simulation typeface Astral FY. The same group of three collaborated in 2014 on Naive Gothic FY.

In 2014, Adrien Midzic, Jason Vandenberg, Jérémie Hornus, Julien Priez and Alisa Nowak codesigned the creamy script Vanilla FY. It was renamed Vanille FY after a few days.

ARTypes
[Ari Rafaeli]

ARTypes is based in Chicago, and is run by Ari Rafaeli. UK-based pre-press production specialist who has made type 1 font revivals in 2006-2007, listed below. I am confused as this outfit seems to have grown out of Angus R. Shamal's ARS Type in Amsterdam. Who is who and what is what? List of typefaces categorized by revival type:

  • Hermann Eidenbenz: Graphique (1946) now called Graphique AR, a shadow face.
  • Jan van Krimpen (Enschedé) revivals: Romulus Kapitalen (1931), Romulus Open (1936), Curwen Initials (Van Krimpen did these in 1925 for The Curwen Press at Plaistow, London), and Open Kapitalen (1928).
  • Jacques-François Rosart: Rosart811, a decorative initial typeface that is a digital version of the 2-line great primer letters cut by J. F. Rosart for Izaak&Johannes Enschedé in 1759 (Enschedé no. 811).
  • Stephenson Blake revivals: Borders, Parisian Ronde.
  • Rudolf Koch (Klingspor) revivals: Holla, Koch-Antiqua-Kursiv Zierbuchstaben, Maximilian-Antiqua, Neuland 24pt.
  • Bernard Naudin (Deberny&Peignot) revival: Le Champlevé.
  • W. F. Kemper (Ludwig&Mayer) revival: Colonia. P.H. Raedisch: Lutetia Open (2007) is based on the 48-pt Lutetia capitals engraved by P. H. Raedisch under the direction of Jan van Krimpen for Enschedé in 1928.
  • Richard Austin: Fry's Ornamented (2007) is a revival of Ornamented No. 2 which was cut by Richard Austin for Dr. Edmund Fry in 1796. Stephenson, Blake&Co. acquired the type in 1905, and in 1948 they issued fonts in 30-pt (the size of the original design), 36-, 48- and 60-pt.
  • Max Caflisch (Bauer) revival: Columna.
  • Elisabeth Friedlaender (Bauer) revivals: Elisabeth-Antiqua, Elisabeth-Kursiv (and swash letters). Linotype Friedlaender borders.
  • Herbert Thannhaeuser (Typoart) revival: Erler-Versalien.
  • O. Menhart (Grafotechna) revivals: Manuscript Grazhdanka (cyrillic), Figural, Figural Italic (and swash letters). Also, Grafotechna ornaments (maybe not by Menhart).
  • Hiero Rhode (Johannes Wagner) revival: Hiero-Rhode-Antiqua (2007).
  • F. H. E. Schneidler (Bauer) revival: Legende.
  • Herbert Post revival: Post-Antiqua swash letters.
  • Georg Trump (Weber) revivals: Trump swash letters, Trump-Gravur (called Gravur AR now). The outline caps typeface Forum I-AR is derived from the Forum I type designed by Georg Trump (1948, C. E. Weber). Signum AR-A and Signum AR-B (2011) are based on Trump's Signum (1955, C.E. Weber). Palomba AR (2011) is based on Trump's angular calligraphic typeface Palomba (1954-1955, C.E. Weber). Amati AR (2011) is based on a Georg Trump design from 1953.
  • Hermann Zapf revival: Stempel astrological signs.
  • F.H. Ernst Schneidler: Zentenar Initialen is based on the initials designed by Prof. F. H. E. Schneidler, ca. 1937, for his Zentenar-Fraktur types.
  • Isaac Moore: Old Face Open (Fry's Shaded) is a decorative Baskerville which was probably cut by Isaac Moore for Fry ca. 1788. A revival was issued in eight sizes by Stephenson Blake in 1928.
  • Border units and ornaments: Amsterdam Apollo borders, Gracia dashes, Primula ornaments, Bauer Bernhard Curves, Weiß-Schmuck, Curwen Press Flowers, Klingspor Cocktail-Schmuck, Nebiolo fregi di contorno, Attika borders, English (swelled) rules, Künstler-Linien, an-Schmuck, Primavera-Schmuck.

  • Ornaments 3 AR (2010): based on designs by Bernard Naudin for Deberny et Peignot, c. 1924; and ornaments based on designs by Oldrich Menhart, Karel Svolinsky and Jaroslav Slab for the state printing office of Czechoslovakia and Grafotechna.
  • Ornaments 4 AR (2010): based on the Amsterdam Apollo and Gracia ornaments and the Amsterdam Crous-Vidal dashes (designed by Crous-Vidal).

  • Hermecito (2013) is a 46-style type system based on an angular serif. It covers Cyrillic, Latin, Greek and several other scripts.

astype.de
[Andreas Seidel]

Astype.de is a German foundry started in 2003 by illustrator and type designer Andreas Seidel (b. 1975). He lives in Cottbus, Germany. Home page. See also here. In 2007, he and Ingo Preuss set up The German Type Foundry. The typefaces:

  • One of his first typefaces was Crayfish (originally a URW font, but withdrawn by Seidel from URW in 2002). Crayfish is a display type originally designed for an American Football club. The Crayfish faces are sold as Thunder Bold and Titan Bold.
  • Check his nice weather symbols (not a font).
  • He finished Ornaments Thanksgiving and the great ASTYPEOrnaments-WineGrape A (2004).
  • He is working on 14th century initials (2003).
  • He created Sattler (2003): Joseph Kaspar Sattler, one of the great German art nouveau artists created these nice initials in 1897 for the famous royal monumental book project Die Nibelunge for the Reichsdruckerei Berlin. Only 200 exclusive signed masterpieces were printed in four years from 1900 till 1904. Joseph Sattler was the art director, type designer and designer in one person. The Reichsdruckerei showed samples of the unfinished work in 1900 at the world exhibition in Paris to advertise the high craftsmanship of the German presses.
  • He made Heraut (2003), an art nouveau lettering typeface based on a 1901 design of Hermann Hoffmann called Herold Reklameschrift.
  • He created Sveva AS Versal (2003, art nouveau).
  • About Missa Solemnis, he writes: Solemnis was designed by Günter Gerhard Lange and first cut in metal 1953 (this is the date he quotes himself, other sources mention 1950 or 1952). It seems to be one of his earliest typeface designs that he had done as a freelancer for H. Berthold AG in Berlin. [...] Missa Solemnis AS is a new, remastered and extended version of Mr Lange's typeface. The font is available in the OpenType format and comes in two styles: 1953 and 2003. The 1953 style contains all characters of the original metal type, as well as a few additions. [...] The 2003 cut is more delicate and makes extensive use of the OpenType format. It contains over 650 glyphs, covering Roman-based languages of Western and Central Europe. His Solemnis inspired Simeon AS (2003), a 650-glyph uncial style face.
  • In 2004, he created Missale Incana, an interpretation of a typeface from Herbert Thannhaueser.
  • Still in 2004, he created ASTYPE Ornaments Christmas A2 and ASTYPE Ornaments Christmas A. These were followed in 2005 by ASTYPE Ornaments Christmas B.
  • He made Missale Lunea (2004, uncial). This has astroligical symbols, moon phases and medieval characters.
  • In 2005, the exquisite calligraphic script typeface Gracia was added, consisting of Gracia No. 44, 45, 54 and 55 (graceful calligraphic script), and Gracia Solo.
  • Paola is a redesigned, new interpretation of a brush typeface from Carl Rudolf Pohl.
  • He made Adana (2005): The roots of Adana going back to the year 1930, to the Berlin-based German graphic designer Wilhelm Berg. His typeface can be interpreted as an answer to Lucian Bernhards Schönschrift. The Initials are nearly close to the original drawings but the Circular typeface was changed dramaticly. Excentric, unusual forms and loops were changed to fit todays needs. Due to the lack of a corresponding Roman letter form, the Regular version was designed including small caps, fitting the contrast and swinging shapes of Adana Circular. Both typefaces play well together in all kinds of adverts, as well with designs like Bodoni or Didot.
  • Alea AS Initials (2005) is a floral faced based on the drawings of Maria Ballé.
  • Taiko (2006).
  • ASTYPE Ornaments Accolades A (2007), and ASTYPE Ornaments Accolades C (2011).
  • GTF Toshna Std (2008, German Type Foundry) is a garaldic type family in three optical weights, after a 1955 family called Tschörtner-Antiqua by Hellmuth Tschörtner that was very popular in the DDR.
  • Secca (2009, German Type Foundry) is a simple sans family rooted in early German grotesque type designs. See also Secca Soft (2014).
  • Nepos (2010) is an experimental modular type kit consisting of ready-made typefaces and a set of special BUILD fonts to build your own letters and ornaments. These BUILD fonts can be used on layers with different colors and overprinting for special effects. The effects like Antiplex can be considered as kitchen tiles. There are also color inversions and stencil types.
  • Secca Saloon (2011) is a versatile ornamental Western family.
  • Popsil (2011) is a white-on-black hand-printed poster face.
  • Ademo (2011) is a classic shaded layered 3d caps face, based on two typefaces designed by Carl Albert Fahrenwaldt that were published in 1931-1932 by Schriftguss AG.
  • Wood Bonnet Antique No.7 (2012) is based on real vintage wood type blocks from Switzerland.
  • VTG Stencil US No. 4 (2012) is based on plate US No. 4 from New York Stencil Works. This revolving stencil-plate was invented by Eugene L. Tarbox and patented in 1868. The military stencil fonts VTG Stencil US No. 2 (+Ornaments), VTG Stencil US No. 51, VTG Stencil UK No. 76, VTG Stencil Germany No. 101 (2014, modeled after historic blackletter stencil plates from Bavaria), and followed in 2014.
  • VTG Stencil Germany No. 1 (2013) is a set of nicely executed didone stencil typefaces based on real models used in Germany from 1871-1918 and later. There is a Sketch style.

  • Birra Stout (2008): a free chunky font.
  • Jubilat (2008). Darden writes: Commissioned by Michael Picon for First; further development underwritten by Tatler Asia&La Semaine. Recipient of a Type Directors Club award as Untitled. Jubilat explores the history of the slab serif in six weights, with generous curves and efficient spacing in both dimensions. Its large lowercase and high contrast make it suitable for headlines, decks, and sidebars.
  • Bergamot (under development).
  • Profundis (1999, with Timothy Glaser; Profundis andd Profundis Sans in three styles each, all accompanied by Ornaments).
  • Vittoria.

The slab serif, sans and serif versions are related and derived from each other, in some cases, by snap-on technology (in the spirit of Thesis or Scala or Nexus). In 2005, Freight Big (the heavier styles are high-contrast didones) and Freight Display were added. Freight Sans Condensed Pro followed in 2012. Freight Micro Pro (2009) was specifically created for use in phone books and small size applications. Freight Macro Pro is more suited for corporate branding. Review by John Berry. Freight Neo Pro (a humanistic sans) was published in 2013.
  • Virtuoso Life (2005): a proprietary custom display typeface for the Virtuoso Limited magazine.
  • Corundum Text (2006): a fantastic and full family based on Fournier's pre-modern alphabet from 1742. It covers all European languages and comes with almanac symbols, ligatures, zodiac symbols, the works. Corundum Text won an award at TDC2 2007.

Dieter Steffmann's Homepage
[Dieter Steffmann]

FontShop was the name of Dieter Steffmann's foundry in Kreuztal, Germany (not to be confused with the FontShop foundry and font vendor). He made about 600 self-proclaimed "old-fashioned" fonts, and among these many Fraktur fonts. His site became too expensive to run, and is now hosted by Typoasis. Alternate URL. Current list of fonts. See also here. New stuff. Fontspace link. A nice essay about Fraktur fonts accompanies the fonts. News. As Dieter puts it: I am not a designer but I add missing letters to public domain fonts in order to get a complete character set and I hint the fonts and create new weigths (shadow, inline etc.) His Christbaumkugeln font, and how it was made. The font families:

A set of TeX service files for many of the decorative caps fonts was published by Maurizio Loreti from the University of Padova.

Some fonts can be downloaded for free at Fontspace. He wrote: I started making fonts in 1988 and still produce work, although as it became more difficult to upload my work or share it using the University of Michigan FTP server, I haven't released much. Most recently, I issued the Geoffroy Tory initial letters as a Type 1 font and separately as EPS files as Freeware. I've produced 20-30 fonts since the DTF Volume Three bundle package came out.

The foundry disappeared. The licensing today is unclear.

FONTana Typestudio
[Amondo Szegi]

FONTana is a font design studio in Szeged, Hungary, started in 1999. Free and commercial typefaces (39USD/piece) by Gabor Kóthay (La Danse, Luxury, Sehrgut (Fraktur), Faximile (1999), L&R (1999), Monsoon (1999)), and Amondó Szegi (Telegdi family, which is based on the worn typefaces used by Abbot Nicolaus Telegdi at the Vienna Jesuit press in the 16th Century; Velorex (1999)). Very beautiful web page, and fantastic fonts in all respects!

Free faces: Zodiac (2000), Cards (Gyula Zsigri, 2001), Maldoror, Domino (Gabor Kóthay), Count, Csenge (a Hungarian rune font by Csaba Dávid), Qwerty (Gabor Kóthay, 2000), Y2K (Gabor Kóthay, 2000).

Early commercial fonts: Woodini (caps), Sleeping Beauty (caps), Zimbalo (1999, Amondó Szegi), Pacalsone (1999, Amondó Szegi), Paradox (1999, Amondó Szegi), Construct (2001, Amondó Szegi), Binario (2000, Amondó Szegi), Bikewrench (2001, Amondó Szegi), Cabin (2001, Gábor Kóthay).

At T-26, in 2001, Amondó Szegi published the commercial faces MuseFace (art nouveau), Glosso (2003), Xodus (2001, Regular, Italic, Forgotten), Kozma-Ornaments, all showing old Slavonic and/or Armenian influences in Latin letters. In 2000, he made Alian Ornaments (floral ornaments) for T-26.

At T-26, Gábor Kóthay published Adagietto (2000), Minerva (2000), Archetype (2000). At PsyOps, Gábor Kóthay published the formal script Anglia (2001), Berill (2001), and Plexo (2001).

Amondó Szegi's faces at T-26: Nexodus (2008, medieval style), Zenthes (2008), Alien Ornaments, Glosso, Iskola (a medieval typeface done with Silas Dilworth), Kozma (great ornaments), Melico, Melico Ornaments (2004, another great set), Xodus.

At P22, Szegi designed the curly typeface Mantra (2005). Amondó Szegi's Telegdi family is since 2001 available from P22.

At The Type Trust, he created the playful Gepetto (2006).

Typefaces from 2013: Ma (avant-garde, constructivist, done as an hommage to Lajos Kassak), Overdose, Sorry (kitchen tile typeface), Atett (hommage to Lajos Kassak), Street Soul, Samizdat, Velorex (brush script), Zsir (fat octagonal face), Kedves (hipster font).

Typefaces from 2014: Iseum, Pix Gotisch.

Among their custom corporate identity jobs, the Losonczi Hair Salon work (2012) is quite outstanding.

Dubstep (2012) is an experimental triangulated grid-based typeface.

In 2013, Glosso Novum (2013, Fontana Type Foundry), a remastering of Glosso (2003), was published. Nexodus (2013) is a reworking of his 2001 typeface Xodus, with new ornaments and zodiac signs, and more weights. Xodus (2001, Regular, Italic, Forgotten) revives work by Miklós Kis Misztótfalusi (Nicholas Kis), who was one of the first designers of Armenian type: He prepared his first set of exotic types before September 1685 for the Armenian printing house in Amsterdam. It was the knowledgeable mayor of Amsterdam who requested that those types be founded. These types were used to print the mayor's (Nicolaes Witsen) work entitled Noord en Oost Tartarye. Misztótfalusi's name appears in the colophon of the book. Later, in 1687, he found Georgian types, which were, in many respects, similar to the Armenian set. Since there was no printing house in Georgia, he designed the types on the basis of some manuscripts. Unfortunately, as legend has it, the types never reached the Georgian court, which had commissioned Misztótfalusi to design them. They were either lost or stolen somewhere in Sweden. However, a sample sheet survived and was found in 1980 in Amsterdam. It may seem to make no sense to re-Latinise the types of Misztótfalus, who himself was a great master in founding Latin types, and for whom Armenian types meant the first step in a new direction.

GNU Freefont (or: Free UCS Outline Fonts)
[Steve White]

The GNU Freefont is continuously being updated to become a large useful Unicode monster. GNU FreeFont is a free family of scalable outline fonts, suitable for general use on computers and for desktop publishing. It is Unicode-encoded for compatability with all modern operating systems. There are serif, Sans and Mono subfamilies. Also called the "Free UCS Outline Fonts", this project is part of the larger Free Software Foundation. Scans: FreeMono, FreeMonoBold, FreeMonoBoldOblique, FreeMonoOblique, FreeSans, FreeSansBold, FreeSansBoldOblique, FreeSansOblique, FreeSerif, FreeSerifBold, FreeSerifBoldItalic, FreeSerifItalic. The original head honcho was Primoz Peterlin, the coordinator at the Institute of Biophysics of the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. In 2008, Steve White took over. Participants and credits, as of the end of 2010, with Unicode range responsibilities:

  • URW++ Design&Development GmbH. URW++ donated a set of 35 core PostScript Type 1 fonts to the Ghostscript project.
    • Basic Latin (U+0041-U+007A)
    • Latin-1 Supplement (U+00C0-U+00FF)
    • Latin Extended-A (U+0100-U+017F)
    • Spacing Modifier Letters (U+02B0-U+02FF)
    • Mathematical Operators (U+2200-U+22FF)
    • Block Elements (U+2580-U+259F)
    • Dingbats (U+2700-U+27BF)
  • Yannis Haralambous and John Plaice. Yannis Haralambous and John Plaice are the authors of Omega typesetting system, which is an extension of TeX. Its first release, aims primarily at improving TeX's multilingual abilities. In Omega all characters and pointers into data-structures are 16-bit wide, instead of 8-bit, thereby eliminating many of the trivial limitations of TeX. Omega also allows multiple input and output character sets, and uses programmable filters to translate from one encoding to another, to perform contextual analysis, etc. Internally, Omega uses the universal 16-bit Unicode standard character set, based on ISO-10646. These improvements not only make it a lot easier for TeX users to cope with multiple or complex languages, like Arabic, Indic, Khmer, Chinese, Japanese or Korean, in one document, but will also form the basis for future developments in other areas, such as native color support and hypertext features. ... Fonts for UT1 (omlgc family) and UT2 (omah family) are under development: these fonts are in PostScript format and visually close to Times and Helvetica font families.
    • Latin Extended-B (U+0180-U+024F)
    • IPA Extensions (U+0250-U+02AF)
    • Greek (U+0370-U+03FF)
    • Armenian (U+0530-U+058F)
    • Hebrew (U+0590-U+05FF)
    • Arabic (U+0600-U+06FF)
    • Currency Symbols (U+20A0-U+20CF)
    • Arabic Presentation Forms-A (U+FB50-U+FDFF)
    • Arabic Presentation Forms-B (U+FE70-U+FEFF)
  • Yannis Haralambous and Wellcome Institute. In 1994, The Wellcome Library The Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine 183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE, England, commissioned Mr. Haralambous to produce a Sinhalese font for them.

  • Young U. Ryu at the University of Texas at Dallas is the author of Txfonts, a set of mathematical symbols designed to accompany text typeset in Times or its variants. In the documentation, Young adresses the design of mathematical symbols: "The Adobe Times fonts are thicker than the CM fonts. Designing math fonts for Times based on the rule thickness of Times =,, +, /, <, etc. would result in too thick math symbols, in my opinion. In the TX fonts, these glyphs are thinner than those of original Times fonts. That is, the rule thickness of these glyphs is around 85% of that of the Times fonts, but still thicker than that of the CM fonts." Ranges: Arrows (U+2190-U+21FF), Mathematical Symbols (U+2200-U+22FF).
  • Valek Filippov added Cyrillic glyphs and composite Latin Extended A to the whole set of the abovementioned URW set of 35 PostScript core fonts, Ranges: Latin Extended-A (U+0100-U+017F), Cyrillic (U+0400-U+04FF).

The font files were written in custom file format, while tools for conversion into Metafont and PostScript Type 1 were also supplied. The Wadalab Kanji Comittee has later been dismissed, and the resulting files can be now found on the FTP server of the Depertment of Mathematical Engineering and Information Physics, Faculty of Engineering, University of Tokyo: Hiragana (U+3040-U+309F), Katakana (U+30A0-U+30FF). Note that some time around 2009, the hiragana and katakana ranges were deleted.
  • Angelo Haritsis has compiled a set of Greek type 1 fonts. The glyphs from this source has been used to compose Greek glyphs in FreeSans and FreeMono. Greek (U+0370-U+03FF).
  • Yannis Haralambous and Virach Sornlertlamvanich. In 1999, Yannis Haralambous and Virach Sornlertlamvanich made a set of glyphs covering the Thai national standard Nf3, in both upright and slanted shape. Range: Thai (U+0E00-U+0E7F).

Heinrich Vogeler

Heinrich Vogeler (b. 1872, Bremen, Germany) was an art nouveau era artist, designer, illustrator and teacher, known for his paintings and for his illustrations of fairy tales. He also did some work for the art nouveau magazine Pan. From 1894 on, he lived for some time in the artist colony at Worpswede, Germany. In 1908 he and his brother Franz founded the Worpsweder Werkst&aauml;tte, which produced household objects. He studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf from 1890-1895. With sympathies for the working class, after the Great War, he became a pacifist and joined the Communist Party of Germany (KPD). The romanticism of his early art nouveau work gave way to proletarian content. In 1931, Vogeler and his second wife, Sonja Marchlewska, emigrated to Russia. Ironically, he was deported in 1941 to Kazakhstan by Soviet authorities, and died there in 1942.

Jugendstil Initials (2007, HiH, Malcolm Wooden) is a commercial digital revival of Jugendstil Initialen (1905, Rudhardsche). Compare with Vogeler Caps (2002, CybaPee Creations) and Vogeler Initialen (2002, Dieter Steffmann), both free revivals of a similar style face.

Other typefaces by him include Vogeler Zierat (1904, Rudhardsche Giesserei), Kalender Bilder (1910, Klingspor).

Jérémie Hornus

Frenchman Jérémie Hornus studied typography at Le Scriptorium de Toulouse, France and the University of Reading, where he graduated in 2006. He worked at Dalton Maag, where he designed Tornac (which became a retail typeface in 2013 at Dalton Maag), a connected script face, and was involved in brand identity for clients such as Burberry, Toyota, HP, Nokia, Danish Industries, Dubai Metro, Manchester Metrolink, and the city of Southampton.

Currently located in Paris, he set up his own commercial foundry in 2013. He also started publishing some of his typefaces at the French type coop Fontyou in 2013. His typefaces:

  • Kefa (2006), a Latin/Ethiopic family with slab serif origins and a futuristic twist. Kefa is an Apple system font. In 2013, he published Kefa II Pro.
  • Schoiffer Sans. A soft slightly flared sans inspired by Enschedé's Roman No6, also known as the Scheffers or Quentell types.
  • Together, Jérémie Hornus and Franck Montfermé designed the feminine italic typeface Maryleen FY (2013, Fontyou).
  • The connected script typeface Tornac (retail typeface from 2013 at Dalton Maag).
  • Beaurencourt FY (2013). A vintage 19th century connected secretary's hand script codfesigned with Gia Tran.
  • Booster FY (2013, with Alisa Nowak and Luis Gomes). Luis Gomes, Jérémie Hornus and Alisa Nowak codesigned the rounded sans typeface family Booster Next FY in 2014.
  • Gauthier FY (2013, with Alisa Nowak). A transitional typeface family. In 2014, Jeremie Hornus and Julien Priez codesigned the hairline typeface Gauthier Display FY.
  • Lean-O FY (2013, with Alisa Nowak and Benjamin Lieb). A slab serif with leaning asymmetrical brackets. Has a hairline weight. See also LeanO Sans in 2014.
  • Marianina FY (2013, with Alisa Nowak). A contemporary condensed 24-style headline sans family with simple strokes. Characterized by kinks in the ascenders.
  • The slender display typeface Sérafine FY (2013) was codesigned by Jason Vandenberg, Jérémie Hornus and Alisa Nowak.
  • Gregori Vincens, Gia Tran, J&eacxute;rémie Hornus and Alisa Nowak codesigned the humanist sans typeface Klaus FY (2013).
  • At the end of 2013, Jason Vandenberg and Jérémie Hornus codesigned the groovy poster typeface Jack FY.
  • In 2013, he collaborated with Alisa Nowak and Fabien Gailleul at FontYou on the design of the astrological simulation typeface Astral FY. The same group of three collaborated in 2014 on Naive Gothic FY.
  • In 2014, Adrien Midzic, Jason Vandenberg, Jérémie Hornus, Julien Priez and Alisa Nowak codesigned the creamy script Vanilla FY. With Midzic and Nowak, Hornus codesigned the very humanist sans typeface family Saya FY (2013) and Saya Semisans FY.
  • Joao Costa codesigned the thin lachrymal typeface Zitrone FY in 2014 at FontYou with Jérémie Hornus and Alisa Nowak.
  • In 2014, Monica Munguia, Alisa Nowak and Jérémie Hornus codesigned the blackletter typeface Blackmoon FY.
  • In 2014, Matthieu Meyer, Alisa Nowak and Jérémie Hornus codesigned the wedge serif typeface Ennio FY at FontYou.
  • The punchy poster typeface Kraaken FY (2014) was designed by the FontYou team of Bertrand Reguron, Alice Resseguier, Valentine Proust, Julien Priez, Gia Tran, Jérémie Hornus, and Alisa Nowak.
  • In 2014, Joachim Vu, Jérémie Hornus and Alisa Nowak codesigned the classical copperplate script typeface Vicomte FY.
  • Wes FY (2014). A sans family modeled after Futura.
  • Hansom FY (2014) and Hansom Slab FY (2014, Gia Tran, Jeremie Hornus and Alisa Nowak). An organic sans and slab with very large bowls.
  • In 2014, Julien Priez, Hugo Dumont, Jérémie Hornus and Alisa Nowak codesigned Rowton Sans FY, a sans family patterned after Gill Sans in six weights, from Hairline to Bold---named after Arthur Eric Rowton Gill, it has the Gillian lower case g but italic lowercase is a bit too far afield for my own taste, especially the squezed g.

Laboratory of Digital Typography and Mathematical Software
[Antonis Tsolomitis]

The Department of Mathematics of the University of the Aegean has established a laboratory on Digital Typography and Mathematical Software in 2006. It supports the Greek language with respect to the TeX typesetting system and its derivatives. Antonis Tsolomitis (who lives in Karlovassi, Samos) writes: After the support for Greek was added by A. Syropoulos and the first complete Greek Metafont font was presented by Claudio Beccari there was an obvious need, to be able to use a scalable Greek font with LaTeX. With this in mind, we developed the first Greek fontfamily in Type1 format with complete LaTeX support, called "Kerkis". Their Greek font Epigrafica (2006) is a modification of MgOpen-Cosmetica, which in turn was based on Optima. Tsolomitis is the author of the math font family Kerkis, and of GFS Complutum (2007, with George D. Matthiopoulos), which is based on a minuscule-only font cut in the 16th century (see also here). About GFS Complutum, they write: The ancient Greek alphabet evolved during the millenium of the Byzantine era from majuscule to minuscule form and gradually incorporated a wide array of ligatures, flourishes and other decorative nuances which defined its extravagant cursive character. Until the late 15th century, typographers who had to deal with Greek text avoided emulating this complicated hand; instead they would use only the twenty four letters of the alphabet separately, often without accents and other diacritics. A celebrated example is the type cut and cast for the typesetting of the New Testament in the so-called Complutensian Polyglot Bible (1512), edited by the Greek scholar, Demetrios Doukas. The type was cut by Arnaldo Guillén de Brocar and the whole edition was a commision by cardinal Francisco Ximénez, in the University of Alcalá (Complutum), Spain. It is one of the best and most representative models of this early tradition in Greek typography which was revived in the early 20th century by the eminent bibliographer of the British Library, Richard Proctor. A font named Otter Greek was cut in 1903 and a book was printed using the new type. The original type had no capitals so Proctor added his own, which were rather large and ill-fitted. The early death of Proctor, the big size of the font and the different aesthetic notions of the time were the reasons that Otter Greek was destined to oblivion, as a curiosity. Greek Font Society incorporated Brocar's famous and distinctive type in the commemorative edition of Pindar's Odes for the Athens Olympics (2004) and the type with a new set of capitals, revived digitaly by George D. Matthiopoulos, is now available for general use. He also made GFS Solomos (2007) and GFS Baskerville (2007).

In 2010, Tsolomitis published txfontsb, in which he added true small caps and Greek to the txfonts package. These fonts form a family called FreeSerifB, in type 1, that covers Latin, Greek, many Indic languages, Armenian, chess symbols, astrology, music, domino, and tens of other ranges of symbols.

MvB Design
[Mark van Bronkhorst]

MvB Design is Mark van Bronkhorst's company in Albany, CA. Also known as Markanna Studios Inc. Fonts distributed by FontHaus and MyFonts.

In the list below, unless explicitly mentioned, Mark van Bronkhorst is the designer: GryphiusMVB (2003), MVB Solano Gothic (2007-2009, six Bank Gothic lookalikes done for the city of Albany, CA), ITC Conduit (1997), MVB Celestia Antiqua One and Two (1993-1996, contains zodiac signs), MVB Greymantle (1993, Kanna Aoki), Magnesium MvB (1998, Adobe), Magnolia MvB (1997), Airedale (1992), BovinePoster or MVB Bovine (1993), DickAndJane (1994), MildewRoman (1994), QuercusRegular (1993), PFAnimals (1993), PFCommerceCommunication (1992), PFFoodDrink (1992), PFHolidaysCelebrations (1992), PFHouseholdItems (1993), PFTransportTravel (1992), QuercusHard (1993), MVB Emmascript (1996, Kanna Aoki), MVB Café Mimi (1996-2003, Kanna Aoki), MVB Pedestria (2002, a sans family by Akemi Aoki), MVB Pedestria Pict (2002, dingbats by Akemi Aoki), MVB Verdigris (2003-2011, a garalde close to Sabon), MVB Fantabular and MVB Fantabular Sans (2002, Akemi Aoki, monospaced, typewriter-style), MVB Grenadine One and Two (2003, sans families by Akemi Aoki), MVB Peccadillo (2002, by Holly Goldsmith and Alan Greene), BossaNovaMVB (Holly Goldsmith, 1997), BatmanForever1 (1994, Maseeh Rafani/Warner Bros and Mark van Bronkhorst), Breakdown (1996), HornyDave (1995, based on illustrations of Georgia Panagiotopoulos), HypnoclipsLogoFont (1997), Ovidius (1993), Subterfuge (1995), ZedGothicMvB (1996), HotsyTotsy, MVB Sirenne Six, MVB Sirenne Text, MVB Sirenne Display (2002, display serif family by by MvB and Alan Greene), Veriris Pro Text (2003-2011).

MVB Sacre Bleu (2007) is an award-winning handwriting typeface about which Joshua Lurie-Terrell writes: Sacre Bleu is the most flexible and accessible informal script of 2007, and rivals some of the best faces in this vein from the past decade. He compares it with Christian Robertson's Dear Sarah, Dave Farey's Lettres Eclatees, Letterror's Salmiak and Nick Cooke's Olicana, another very successful face.

In 2008, Mark set up Sweet Fonts, where he and Linnea Lundquist designed Sweet Upright Script (2008), and Mark published the quintuple line blackboard board family Sweet Titling No. 22 (2010), Sweet Square (2011---in the style of Bank Gothic), Sweet Sans Pro (2011, a sans family from Hairline to Heavy. He says: The family is based on antique engraver's lettering templates called masterplates. Professional stationers use a pantograph to manually transfer letters from these masterplates to a piece of copper or steel that is then etched to serve as a plate or die. This demanding technique is rare today given that most engravers now use a photographic process to make plates, where just about any font will do. But the lettering styles engravers popularized during the first half of the twentieth century---especially the engraver's sans---are still quite familiar and appealing. It is in the style of Burin Sans and Sackers Gothic. And Embarcadero MVB (2010, a near-grotesque superfamily).

In 2013, MVB published the utilitarian sans family MVB Solitaire.

Kegler / P22 created a 25-set P22 Civilité family in 2009 based on a 1908 publication from Enshedé, the 1978 English translation by Harry Carter, and a 1926 specimen also from Enshedé.

P22 Declaration (Script, Signatures, Blackletter, 2009) is based on the lettering used in the 1776 Declaration of Independence.

At ATypI 2004 in Prague, Richard spoke about Vojtech Preissig. Speaker at ATypI 2010 in Dublin, where he presented Making Faces: Metal Type in the 21st Century about which he writes: This film has the dual aim of documenting the almost-lost skill of creating metal fonts and of capturing the personality and work process of the late Canadian graphic artist Jim Rimmer (1931-2010). P22 type foundry commissioned Mr. Rimmer to create a new type design (Stern) that became the first-ever simultaneous release of a digital font and hand-set metal font in 2008. At ATypI 2011 in Reykjavik, he showed Making Faces.

Typefaces from 2014: LTC Archive Ornaments (Richard Kegler and Miranda Roth).

PR Fonts
[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). In preparation: PR Alchemyst, PR Snaggly, PR Monk's Holiday.

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 2010, he went partially commercial. His first pay font is PR Pointers (2010, an arrows font).

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

In 2012, he published PR Arco (arcs for framing curved lines of text, in a style common on Victorian posters and almanac covers) and PR Hydra (a Greek simulation font).

Typefaces from 2013 include PR Snowflakes 01, PR Bramble Wood 1 and 2, PR Valendoodle 01 (Valentine's Day ornaments), PR Swirlies (in series numbered 01 through 10), PR Swirlies Frames, PR HallowDoodles (Halloween dingbats), PR Nouveau Ornaments (art nouveau), PR Viking (a rune simulation face), PR Foxtail 01, PR Foxtail 02, PR Scrolls 03, 04 and 05 (2014), PR Sprucewood (2014), PR Swells One (2014), PR Xmas Doodles (2014), PR Hearts Take Wing 01, PR Mysticon 01 (star dingbats), PR Pointers 01 (arrows), PR Valknut (Norse god symbolism), PR Scrolls, PR Uncial (1998), PR Dim Sum (brush face), PR Columban (a Celtic uncial, named after Irish monk Columbanus), PR Columbian.

Typefaces from 2014: PR Cauldron (a scary Celtic style font), Vanaheim (a flared display typeface influenced by Nordic runes).

SIAS (or: Signographical Institute Andreas Stötzner)
[Andreas Stötzner]

Andreas Stötzner (b. 1965, Leipzig) is a type designer who lives in Pegau, Saxony. Graduate from the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig and the Royal College of Art in London (1994).

He created Andron Scriptor (2004, free), with original ideas for Greek and Cyrillic alphabets. The Andron project intends to extend this Venetian text typeface in many directions: right now, it covers Latin, Greek, Coptic, Gothic, runes, Cyrillic, Etruscan and Irish scripts, musical symbols, astronomical and meteorological symbols, and many dingbats. The Andron MC Corpus series (2012) contains Uncial, Mediaeval and Capital styles. He also created Andron 1 Monetary (2014), Andron 1 Alchemical and Andron 2 ABC (2014, for children's literature).

On or before 2006, he created a few typefaces for Elsner & Flake. These include EF Beautilities, EF Ornamental Rules, EF Squares, EF Topographicals, EF Typoflorals, EF Typographicals, EF Typomix, EF Typosigns, EF Typospecs, EF Typostuff.

Lapidaria (2010) is an elegant art deco sans family that includes an uncial style and covers Greek. Hibernica (2010) is a Celtic variant of Lapidaria. Symbojet Bold (2010) is a combination of a Latin and Greek sans typeface with 400 pictograms.

Rosenbaum (2012) is a festive blackletter face, obtained by mixing in didone elements.

In 2013, he published Arthur Cabinet, a six-style inline art deco caps collection of typefaces, with accompanying Arthur Ornaments. Meanwhile, Andron Mega grew to 14,700 unicode glyphs in 2013.

Su Lucas is a South African designer who joined Apostrophic Labs [dead link] in March 2001. She published the barbed wire typeface Barbarello there in 2001.

Her oeuvre includes SL Christmas Silhouettes (2000), JunariClaws (2002, with Bella Morte), JunariClawsItalic, SLBookArts (2003, book dingbats), SLDividers (2003, used to be called filets), SLForknFont (2000), SLSignLanguage (2001), SLSquareOrnaments (2003), SLZodiacIcons (2002), Boere Tudor (2002, a medieval font), SL Wash, SL Star of David, SL Squiggles, SL Zodiac Stencils, SL Woodcut Faeries, SL Kid's Alphabet, SL Safety, SL Mythological Silhouettes, Back to the Futurex, and Rock Art in South Africa dingbats (2000). About that last dingbat font, she writes: ...This font was made from photographs and drawings of the rock art in South Africa....The Bushmen (San) were the most prolific painters....A lot of the male figures are shown with a semi-erection, as can be seen in q, e, r, and p. This is a physical trait peculiar to the San, called "penis rectus". This characteristic helped with cooling and heat dissipation in the very hot summers experienced in South Africa. A recurrent image is that of one or more crossbars across the penis. The meaning of this is unclear, but it is theorised that the foreskin was adorned with ornaments like pieces of bone and feathers.
