About his GeauxXPDF typeface (2010), he writes: I had extracted a nearly complete set on this one a few years back, except for J and Z which I created on my own. As best I can tell, it only exists as an upper case font without most punctuation, so I created that too to make it more useable. I don't know how much LSU [Louisiana State University] paid for this design, but to me it always looked like something that Larabie or Iconian would have given away. He also extracted HDRadioAlphabet from a rounded Arial typeface he found on HD radio. His UScoreRGK (2012) is a blocky angular font used on-screen by Fox Sports. LCD Display (2012) is a 28-segment LED font. UA Terrafont (2012) was based upon the vector art in this PDF file.

The font was created on request and the image that was provided only showed the jersey numbers of Santos FC. Based on photographs, the player's name is not shown on the jersey explaining the absence of letters in the font. It appears that the source image was created by Cleiton Fabiano of www.futbr.com.

Agustín Luis Bou
Prolific type designer, b. London, 1951. Alan started working in 1970 for Graphic Systems as a lettering artist. In 1975, he joined Letraset as the Senior Type Designer and Studio Manager where he was responsible for all the artwork produced by the Letraset studio. During his tenure at Letraset, he designed over 40 popular typefaces, including Bramley, Candice, Bickley Script and Belwe. Most of these typefaces also showed up in the Scangraphic collection. Together with type director Colin Brignall, Alan contributed to the success of Letraset. All the original typographic artwork produced at Letraset was produced by hand cutting the fonts in Rubylith, a highly-skilled technique known as stencil cutting. Alan was responsible for training the entire Letraset studio in this art. Most of the original Letraset artwork has now been archived at St. Brides Printing Library, London. Today, Alan works independently, specializing in all facets of corporate identity including type design, typography, packaging, and development of logos and symbols.

Bob was blessed with natural teaching abilities; and those in social and professional circles who had the good fortune to know him considered him not just a type designer but a mentor and a friend. As one such person close to him put it, he was a "graphic technician... back when computers were not even in site for graphic arts, he would take on any intricate&complex graphic project that others would shy away from and come up with a solution that achieved a masterpiece. I'll always remember someone saying 'this can't be done' and Bob saying let me see it and a short time later, there it was --done&perfect. I would like to think that attitude rubbed off on me. Along with this gift for teaching and explaining the complex, Bob exhibited a level of professionalism that was unsurpassed. A number of years ago when the need came to make the transition from the traditional to digital way of creating fonts, he rose to the challenge admirably. Towards the last few years of Photo-Lettering, Bob played a vital role in the conversion to digital, of many of the typefaces within the collection, notably those fonts that carry the prefix PL. More recently, Bob Alonso released several fonts through ITC, Adobe and his independent foundry, BA Graphics. Bob was on the cutting edge of his best work, and in the circumstance of his untimely passing, left a measure of unfinished designs. However, the spirit of his typographic talents and his fine sense of humor lives on through the many much-loved, and popular fonts he has left us: fonts such as Cookie Dough, Equate, Elephant Bells and Pink Mouse, to name a few.
Alonso created these typefaces:
Montreal-based creator of the monospaced negatively tilted futuristic typeface Lights Out Noir (2008). In 2017, he designed the athletic lettering font Beau's Varsity and the show card lettering font Jodler. [Google] [MyFonts] [More] ⦿

Casady&Greene, Inc. started out as two separate little companies, CasadyWare and Greene, Inc. CasadyWare, which was founded by Robin Casady in August 1984, began producing Fluent Fonts, which were bitmapped typefaces for the Macintosh. The 1984 set of fonts have copyright lines that mention Richard A. Ware. As soon as PostScript fonts appeared, CasadyWare got hold of the first version of Fontographer and produced the first downloadable PostScript fonts, even beating Adobe, the originators of PostScript, to the punch. These were marketed as Fluent Laser Fonts (FLF) out of Carmel, CA.

Many fonts were digitized by Richard Ware, and some were designed by Mike Wright. The contact was Terry Kunysz in Salinas, CA.
On July 3, 2003, Casady&Greene closed it doors permanently. However, one of its designers, Mike Wright, writes: I believe that all the fonts that were developed by the company are now in the public domain. Robin Casady and I are thinking of putting up a site with free downloads of all of the old C&G public domain fonts--mainly as a way of attracting Mac users to see iData 2.
Robin Casady in 2003: I founded Casady Company in 1984 to publish fonts for the new Macintosh. The name changed with incorporation to CasadyWare, Inc. Around this time I met Mike Greene who was looking for a software project to do after SpellsWell. I talked him into doing a program that became QuickDEX. Later CasadyWare, Inc. merged with Greene, Inc. and became Casady & Greene, Inc. Over the years, my role in management reduced as my interests in other areas developed. In the last ten years I have had no official management duties at C&G. About a year ago I removed myself from the Board of Directors.

Active type expert and type designer, who created FF Mark in 2013 together with Hannes von Döhren and the FontFont team. This 10-style font family spanning hairline to black is marketed as Ze new Germanetric sans. The FF Mark Ultra weight, published in 2015, is absolutely stunning.

This simple geometric sans serif family is based on the style used in the 20th century by German engineers: It has a plain and precise appearance, and is a textbook example of a compass-and-ruler typeface. The monospaced almost-typewriter version Fabrikat Mono followed in 2017.

A discussion on the typography of numbers on shirts, by Dutchman Sander Neijnens, a Tilburg-based Dutch graphic designer (b. Valkenswaard, 1957) who drew a character in the September 11 charity font done for FontAid II. Specializing in numbers on athletic shirts, and displeased with the sameness of the letters in classical typefaces like ITC Machine or Superstars, he proposes serifed numbers, which were used by the soccer team Willem II from Tilburg in 2002-2003. A new athletic number design, King III, is in the works. He created Hia (a stencil typeface for use on doors and fences), Streep (horizontally striped letters for fences), and Klinker (based on street tile patterns).

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.
Nick Curtis: athletic lettering
Athletic lettering typefaces by Nick Curtis include CampGranadaNF (free). Theodoor Van Erp's 1928 poster for a Delft Student Corps in the Netherlands inspired Nick Curtis to draw Camp Granada NF. Tony Geddes' athletic lettering typeface in the Letragraphica series was the basis for Sis Boom Bah NF (2007). Joe College NF (2010) is another athletic lettering family. Uncle Sam Slim NF (2011) is an octagonal condensed typeface modeled after American Extra Condensed (1905, Morris Fuller Benton). [Google] [MyFonts] [More] ⦿

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] ⦿

Palmer and Rey
Typefounders and printing press in San Francisco. The Miller&Richard Type Foundry of Scotland opened a branch in San Francisco in 1878, headed by John J. Palmer. This branch was sold to Palmer and Valentine J. A. Rey in 1882. In 1884, Palmer&Rey acquired the assets of the Pacific Type Foundry. The company then merged into American Type Founders in 1892. They published New specimen book (1884, San Francisco), in which we find several original typefaces, such as the Octic series (athletic lettering, octagonal) and the very Victorian typeface Oxford.
Digitizations: In 2010, Nick Curtis created a digital version of their Courier, and called it Pony Xpress NF. Rightly So NF (2011, Nick Curtis) is a squarish typeface based on Geometric Gothic from the 1884 specimen book of Palmer and Rey---it is hard to imagine that this almost pixelish style was around at that epoch. Oxford was revived by Nick Curtis as Palmer Oxonian NF (2011). Octic was revived in 2012 by Nick Curtis as Easy Eights NF. Alto Rey NF (2014, Nick Curtis) revives an 1884 wedge serif design.

Type designer at Canada Type. Wikipedia tells us that Patrick Griffin had been locked away in a mental institution by Carter and Barbara, after he walked in on his mother performing oral sex on Jackie Gleason. He had a nervous breakdown and was sent to a mental hospital, where he came to the conclusion that Gleason was evil because he was fat, leading him to hate fat people. However, that is a different Patrick Griffin. The real Patrick Griffin, a graduate of York University, lives and works in Toronto, where he founded Canada Type and made it the most successful Canadian typefoundry. His work is summarized in this 2009 interview by MyFonts. It includes lots of custom work for banks, TV stations, and companies/groups like New York Times, Pixar, Jacquin's, University of Toronto, and the Montreal Airport. His retail fonts include the following.

[...] Neil opened his personal type foundry, Positype, in 2000 to feed his ever-growing desire for type design. He later co-founded TypeTrust (2002) with Silas Dilworth as his addiction to type and lettering grew. [...] He was an adjunct art professor at The University of Georgia in graphic design and taught graphic design at the Governor's School for the Arts.

German typefoundry, est. 2016 by Christoph Koeberlin, whose passion for FC Kaiserslautern in the Bundesliga led to the creation of Sportsfonts. Koeberlin previously designed retail typefaces such as Fabrikat and FF Mark (the latter with Hannes von Döhren and the FontFont Type Department).
His first typeface at Sportsfonts is the 24,000-glyph 49-font athletic lettering superfamily, Winner.
Sportsfonts was founded in 2014 or 2015 by Kristopher Bazen (b. Canton, OH) who studied at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. He worked in the world of sports marketing, lived in Columbus, OH, and is now in Charlotte, NC. He writes that Sportsfonts was built with the sports designer in mind. We are a rare breed that is enamored with the aesthetic of athletics, so it was only appropriate to create a site focused on such a crucial element of sport: typography. From jerseys to end zones, it is impossible to downplay the effect of type in our industry/passion of choice, so instead, we choose to embrace it wholeheartedly. Please join me in creating the one and only mecca of all sports font foundries!
