Anthony Cahalan

Anthony Cahalan has broad-ranging national and international experience in graphic design, marketing, public relations and design education. He is currently Deputy Head of the School of Design and Architecture and Associate Professor of Graphic Design at the University of Canberra. He studied visual communication at Sydney College of the Arts, has a Master of Design from the University of Technology Sydney and completed his PhD in typography at Curtin University of Technology in Perth. Cahalan's doctoral thesis was entitled Type, trends and fashion: A study of the late 20th century proliferation of typefaces. It was published by Mark Batty in 2008. The book blurb: New York : Mark Batty Publisher, 2008, quarto, cloth in dust jacket. 348 pp. First Edition. Changes in technology and stylistic developments in the design, use and reproduction of typeface designs were exponential in the last two decades of the twentieth century. This was due in no small part to the availability of the desktop computer and associated software. Anthony Cahalan investigates this late twentieth century proliferation of Western typefaces by analyzing and interpreting the phenomenon from the perspective of those studied: graphic designers and similar experienced users of typefaces, rather than the general population of computer users. This book documents the way these design and typography professionals saw the type design industry from the inside to provide fascinating "snapshots in time" of typeface design during this exciting period.Speaker at ATypI 2010 in Dublin.

[David M. Foster]

Australian graphic and type designer who lives in Sidney. Born in 1986, Dave graduated with a Bachelor in Visual Communication from Swinburne University, and went on to work for 6 years as graphic designer in Sydney before a government scholarship enabled him to attend the Type and Media Masters held at kABk in 2011-12. His early type sketches were quite promising. He graduated from the TypeMedia program at KABK Den Haag in 2012.

In 2012, he won two awards at the Moriswawa Type Design Competition for Blanco, the Gold Prize in the Latin category, and the Second Prize in the People's Choice category for Latin. Blanco also won at TDC 2013.

In 2014, Dave Foster and Paul Barnes (Commercial Type) designed Marr Sans. They write: The influence of Scotland in typefounding belies the nation's small size. Marr Sans, a characterful grotesque design, was inspired by a typeface from the 1870s found in the work of James Marr & Co. in Edinburgh, successors to Alexander Wilson & Sons. From a few lines in three sizes, and only one weight, Paul Barnes and Dave Foster have expanded the family from Thin to Bold, plus an Ultra Black weight, a wider companion to the six lighter weights. While Graphik and Atlas represent the greater homogenity of twentieth century sans serifs, Marr, like Druk, revels in the individuality of the nineteenth century, and is like an eccentric British uncle to Morris Fuller Benton's Franklin and News Gothics.

    Maurice wrote this: I designed Fino as well as Cut-In (Medium and Bold) in the '70s which won a competition arranged by Letraset International London. These two fonts have been plagiarized subsequently. I was the first Australian designer to win the competition for new typefaces and be accepted in the Letraset range. I was getting paid for it until they stopped selling Letraset who had the copyrights and were in Letraset Catalogue. I am about to start drawing up and will be marketing Fino as well as Cut-In family range plus other ranges of fonts. In 1994 I won a Monotype N.Y. typeface competition with Cadenza. And there was another competition I won as well from a New York typehouse which I called Concept and they never gave me the prize in moneys and I forgot about chasing them therefore I cant remember the foundrys name or phototypehouses name. Note: Fino was shamelessly copied as Feena by ZETAFonts (South Africa) and Cut-In was modified/copied/mutilated by Fontalicious as Alba. [Google] [More]  ⦿

He writes: As part of Liquorice Studio's holistic branding for the Newtown Social Club, we developed a bespoke san-serif typeface. The typeface was developed in standard and stencil weights for different applications and its creation ensures unique and tailored communications for Newtown down to the finest detail. The font reflects the cafĂ© owners love of industrial age technical manuals and is based on one of the first geometric san-serif typefaces, designed in 1922 by Jakob Erbar, Erbar Grotesque. Liquorice went through a process of rationalisation and testing, amending and tweaking letterforms and eventually rounding off features to create a friendly but legible modern typeface.

    Simon Pascal Klein

    Designer from Canberra, Australia, but born in Mainz, Germany. Leader of Open Baserville, an open source project for a digital revival of the famous Baskerville typefaces. Open Baskerville is based upon Fry's Baskerville, a Baskerville derivative from ca. 1768 created by Isaac Moore, a punchcutter who worked for John Baskerville. Besides Klein, contributors include James Puckett and Rob Mientjes (from Den Haag, The Netherlands). Typophile discussion. OFL link. They explain the project:

    In order to be historically correct and entertain typophiles, Open Baskerville is to be a revival of a Baskervillian ‘clone’ by Isaac Moore, a punchcutter who worked for the typefoundry of Joseph Fry in Bristol and later in London. It is believed that he did so because Baskerville had little financial success, never selling his types which were at their making considered vulgar in their stark contrast of the lettershapes and ‘damaging to the eyes’. Further, no other printer had the technology to accurately print with the high-contrast, sharp hairline punches at the time anyway. Fry’s Baskerville was created as a derivative of Baskerville that could be used with the less expensive papers, presses, and the inks that were common.

    Moore created a huge series of fonts in this style, complete with ornaments, a (subjectively weak) italic, and old-style figures for the text weights. The typeface was cut around 1766 and the original matrices still exist. They were purchased from the Fry foundry by Stephenson, Blake & Co. in 1910 having already acquired the Fry foundry materials off the Sir Charles Reed foundry. The surviving punches and even original matrices are in the collection of the Type Museum, London and The Smithsonian National Museum of American History, though both inaccessible, the latter due to their location in a warehouse containing asbestos.

    Sadly only two complete original specimens exist, both in libraries that are currently inaccessible. The first, a broadside specimen printed in Bristol in 1766 is currently housed at the Providence library and the second specimen is in the Royal Library in Stockholm. A copy of the 1766 specimen was reprinted in Updike’s Printing Types, figure 276 though obtaining a high-quality scan is desireable. A contact attempt was made at the Providence with no luck whereas the cost of having a Stockholm copy digitized is presumed to be around the USD $100 mark — this is an option worth considering. There is a very large, multi-page specimen in the Library of Congress, but it only shows the ‘Quosque Tandem…’ quote and it cannot be photographed. Stephenson, Blake are likely to have edited and extended the typeface, as there are subtle variations and differences in the 24-, (possibly 30-,) 36- and 48-point specimens that were made in 1913 and consequently most of the accessible specimens feature them. Below are featured two extracts from two separate scans of Stephenson, Blake specimens. They are both of the Stephenson, Blake Fry’s Baskerville, which in some sizes was produced entirely from the original matrices. In the smaller sizes the letters with descenders were replaced with shorter descenders in the twentieth century when the baselines of of metal type were standardized.

    Stephenson, Blake 1960s specimen featuring their version of Fry’s Baskerville. Stephenson, Blake 1960s specimen featuring their version of Fry’s Baskerville.

    Morris Fuller Benton revived the Moore design for ATF and it first appears in the 1923 ATF specimen (also note a 12pt scan from 1923), as well as later again in the 1934 ATF specimen and in the 1941 ATF specimen. Interestingly Benton did not choose to use Moore’s italic, instead opting for an italic which was in fact copied from the type of Richard Austin that English Monotype later made under the name of ‘Bell’ and also very similar to ‘Bulmer’. So also up for discussion is the selection of an italic; Moore’s italic has been received poorly and as just noted, even Benton choose to replace it. We may do the same, using or basing it off an existing italic or if we’re feeling particularly fruity, draw our own.

    Dunwich Type Founders [James Puckett] explains in an abrasive style Open Baskerville's origins, and destroys it as a possible web font: In 2007 I was working in-house at an organization that used ITC New Baskerville as the serif typeface of its identity. New Baskerville is a great design, but it lacks the high contrast needed for large sizes. This inspired me to start work on Large Fry's, a revival of Fry's Baskerville by Isaac Moore. Large Fry's had extreme contrast for big print use. I left that job in 2008 and never finished Large Fry's. Later a heated discussion about free/open-source/libre fonts occurred on a web forum. I ended up releasing my unfinished Large Fry's into the public domain in hopes that some of the libre fonts geeks could turn it into something worthwhile. That never happened; the project went off track when open-source zealots wanted to move the entire thing to Fontforge, which nobody with type design skills really wants to use to design type. So the files wasted away in online repositories, which is not really a loss to anyone. Then, in 2010, web fonts happened. And someone decided to make web fonts out of Open Baskerville. This was a horrible idea---Open Baskerville was not intended to be a general purpose print font. It needs to be used larger than 36 pixels just to be readable. [Google] [More]  ⦿

    His graduation typeface at KABK was Brisbane (2013): Brisbane is a relaxed, self-assured sans serif designed specifically for pedestrian wayfinding in the city of Brisbane, Australia. The family has a range of three weights in five styles plus accompanying optical grades for inverted use. This makes Brisbane a solid candidate for orientation systems in the city or suburb.. This typeface has oomph and character, and should prove a sturdy and fun typeface for any city that uses it.

    For his revival project at KABK, he chose Nieuw Javaansch No.1 (2012). Nieuw Javaansch No.1 was the first text typeface designed by S.H. de Roos in 1909 while working at Lettergieterij Amsterdam (formerly known as N. Tetterode). It is a Javanese script.

    He then worked for the Los Angeles studio of Lettergraphics International in charge of lettering, logo design and converting type designs to film fonts. It was at this time (1973) that the Washington Family was completed. Upon his return to Australia that year, he teamed up with a long time colleague to form a design and art group in Sydney.

    Russell has been responsible for the creation of many Australian icons, including the Qantas logo. Russell Bean has served on the executive committees of The Australian Type Directors' Club and Australian Graphic Design Association.

    Typefaces available from MyFonts include Bougainville (1994-2005, a condensed sans family), Fremantle (1994), Beanwood Script (1997, a calligraphic script codesigned with David Wood), Craigie Halpen, Eumundi Sans [also available in the Agfa Creative Alliance], Eumundi Serif, Linear, Melissa, Rhodamine Blue, Sanguine (2004, handwriting), Semaphone (brush writing), Washington (1973, art deco family--really nice geometric letterforms with at least one hairline weight), and Xaltier.

    He designed ITC Christoph's Quill (2004), Billabong (2006, 1950s handlettering), Charleston Caps (2007, art deco) and the comic book lettering typeface Rhapsodie (2006).

    In 2007, he added the Threepoints East, North and West sans faces.

    About the Avant-Garde-style geometric sans family Virginia (2008), Bean writes: she was the most popular headline typeface around, at least in my home town in the year of her release circa 1970. That was the year my five-weight design won the inaugural (and only) Lettergraphics International Alphabet design competition and shut out 5000 competitors. Alas, Lettergraphics ceased to trade from its LA studios after the mid-80s and Virginia's two-inch film fonts were left to collect dust on the cutting room floor.

    The Koomerang family and Karmel (flare-legged retro display) were added in 2008.

    In 2009, Bean created Comp Sans 226, Argyle Rough, Empirical (12-style DIN-like sans family), Dotmap (pixel family) and Macquarie Heavy.

    In 2010, he made the poster signage typeface Hangtime.

    In 2013, he published the hand-printed typeface famiy Progeny.

    He is associated with Keith Morris in the typefoundry Bean & Morris.
