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.

Designer of Omnium (2005, a serif face). In 2009, he designed Tasman at KABK, a sturdy, rational, economical type family for news, designed to withstand difficult printing conditions. The typeface features hybrid old-style figures and compact capital letters that integrate well with the lowercase in fact-and-figure-heavy news content. It borrows its name from Abel Janszoon Tasman (1603-1659), a Dutch seafarer, explorer, and merchant who mapped parts of Australia in 1642, including Van Diemen's Land (now known as Tasmania). Tasman was published in 2019 by Retype, after a brief release by Ourtype.

In 2019, he published Lucifer Sans. This mammoth 162-style typeface family is rooted in Scandinavian geometry and minimalism, mixed with a healthy dose of black metal and irreverent attitude. Harsh vertical cuts and angles throughout the font creates a very strict and hard look, that can either be amplified or loosened up through its stylistic sets.

In 2020, he designed the 10-style rounded octagonal typeface Geometrisk. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

He explains: Originally designed during the Eighties by Aussie artist David Art Wales, the font was inspired by the awkward but charming hand-lettered signs in a Maltese cake shop near his Sydney home. For a brief time during the early Nineties, MTV used Cake Shop for all their on-air interstitials. Since then, it's become a go-to font for everything from children's books to album covers and ice cream branding. In a recent update, Wales added airier spacing to more closely resemble the original signs the font was based on. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

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, and wrote a 28-page document there, Another Bloody Caslon to explain his revival, under the guidance of Paul van der Laan, of a Caslon type, which he called Palladium Caslon.

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.

Domaine Sans (2014, with Kris Sowersby) won an award in the TDC 2015 Type Design competition.

In 2015, Dave Foster developed a handcrafted typeface for National Australia Bank.

Cooper Nouveau is Dave Foster's digitization at House Industries of Dave West's 1966 italic version of Cooper Black.

Co-designer of Epicene Text & Display (2021, by Dave Foster and Noe Blanco). Award winner at 25 TDC in 2022. These are baroque typeface families inspired by the work of 18th century masters J-F. Rosart and J.M. Fleischmann. AIGA describes the result as a baroque typeface celebrating ornamental idiosyncracy.

Co-designer of Manuka (2019-2021, by Dave Foster and Noe Blanco). Award winner at 25 TDC in 2022. Compressed typefaces for large sizes. Described by Klim Type: With deviant details pilfered from Teutonic timber type, Manuka grafts a contemporary antipodean aesthetic onto 19th century German root-stock. Tight spacing, closed apertures and sharp joins make a compelling texture, like sunlight sparkling through a forest canopy.

    [Jamie Clarke]

    Jamie Clarke (Bristol and London, UK, and at some point, Sydney, Australia) creates illustrative type and lettering. He ran his own digital agency for ten years, and retrained after that period by studying type design at the University of Reading and letterpress at the St. Bride Foundation in London. His commercial typefaces include Brim Narrow (2015). He writes about this engraved layered typeface: Brim is inspired by antique woodtype and chromatic type from the 1800s. Its various styles stack together creating a variety of decorative combinations. Each layer can be assigned its own colour. The horizontal etching in some styles and subtle shadow effects can give the typeface the appearance of a vintage money font. In 2016, he added Brim Combined.

    His commissioned led him to the Kelmscott Bakehouse K (2016), a decorative letter commissioned by Kelmscott Bakehouse and based based on William Morris's ats and crafts style.

    Typefaces from 2017: Rig Shaded (a large 3d shaded typeface family---the best such collection available to date).

    Language Geek
    [Christopher Harvey]

    Chris Harvey's site started out by provding keyboards and fonts for the native languages of North America. Located in Ontario, Canada, Chris Harvey's original collection included several free Unicode-compliant creations (Aboriginal Sans Unicode, Aboriginal Serif Unicode). The following were covered: Dakelh, Cherokee, Cree syllabics, Ojibway (Ojibwe, Ojibwa) syllabics, Naskapi syllabics, Dene or Athabaskan/Athapaskan (Chipewyan, Slavey) syllabics, Blackfoot syllabics, and roman orthographies of Canadian (and some US) native languages. As of 2019, he covers more than 100 Indigenous languages, including all of the ones in northern Canada, as well as languages in Australia, New Zealand and the U.S.

    Of particular interest are his pages on syllabics. I quote some passages: "Syllabics became very popular first among the Cree people, then spread to other Algonquian languages such as Ojibway, Naskapi, and Blackfoot. Heading north and east, Syllabics were adopted by some of the Dene languages, and Inuktitut. The writing system was transferred from parent to child despite the attempts of the Canadian residential school system to obliterate Native languages. The system was so popular, that it has been reported that the Cree once had a near 100% literacy rate. [...] These days, Inuktitut, Cree, Naskapi, Oji-Cree, are the languages most often written in Syllabics (although Roman orthographies for these languages are also available). The others have generally switched to Roman writing systems, however some dialects, communities, or individual speakers still prefer syllabics." The list:

    • AboriginalSans-Bold, AboriginalSans-BoldItalic, AboriginalSans-Italic, AboriginalSans, AboriginalSerif-Bold, AboriginalSerif-BoldItalic, AboriginalSerif-Italic, AboriginalSerif: Made by Chris Harvey, 2004-2006.

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.

    Paul Hanslow

    Australian graduate of the type design program at the University of Reading, class of 2017. His graduation typeface there was the Latin / Syriac / Greek typeface Antipode, which is a low contrast serif meant for biblical texts, dictionaries and academic publications. Before Reading, he obtained a BA(Hons) in Visual Communication from Monash University, Australia. Born in Australia, he currently lives in Vancouver, Canada.

    In 2018, Paul Hanslow, Ross Mills and John Hudson co-designed the free STIX Two family, which is based on Times Roman.

    After joining John Hudson's Tiro Typeworks, which is based in Vancouver, Paul Hanslow aided in the development of the text typeface Castoro (2020). Hudson writes: Castoro is a libre font family released under the SIL Open Font License. Castoro is a specific instance of an adaptive design developed for Tiro Typeworks' internal use as a base from which to generate tailored Latin companions for some of our non-European script types. The instance that has been expanded to create the Castoro fonts was initially made for the Indic fonts that we produced for Harvard University Press. In the Castoro version, we have retained the extensive diacritic set for transliteration of South Asian languages, and added additional characters for an increased number of European languages. The parent design here presented as the Castoro instance began as a synthesis of aspects of assorted Dutch types from the 16th through 18th Centuries. Castoro roman was designed by John Hudson, and the italic with his Tiro colleague Paul Hanslow, assisted by Kaja Slojewska. It is named Castoro after the busy beaver, a real workhorse in the Canadian forests. Google Fonts link.

    Skeena (2021) is a humanist sans typeface by John Hudson and Paul Hanslow that was developed for Microsoft for use as one of the default fonts in Office apps and Microsoft 365 products.

    In 2021, Ross Mills, Anna Giedrys and Paul Hanslow co-designed the 14-style sans family Laconia at Tiro Typeworks.

    Co-designer with John Hudson, Alice Savoie and Karsten Luecke of Brill (2011), Brill Greek (2021), Brill Cyrillic (2021) and Brill Latin (2021). This classic text typeface family was a winner at the TDC 2013 competition. Client: Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, The Netherlands. [Google] [More]  ⦿

    Simon Pascal Klein

    Designer from Canberra, Australia, but born in Mainz, Germany. Leader of Open Baskerville, 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 Robin Mientjes. 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 type foundry 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]  ⦿

    Troy Leinster

    Troy Leinster is a graphic designer from Brisbane, Australia, who is based in Amsterdam. Before studying TypeMedia at KABK (class of 2013), Troy attended the type design unit at Monash University in Melbourne, and is a graduate of Type@Cooper at The Cooper Union in New York City.

    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.

    Type Associates
    [Russell Bean]

    Russell Bean (Type Associates of Pyrmont, Australia, est. 1993) is an Australian type designer (b. Parkes, NSW, 1947). He worked in many ad agencies and later in the studios of the local photolettering houses, redrawing typefaces for filmfont setting as well as hand-composing headlines using photo-mechanical devices.

    In the early seventies, he designed a five-weight Avant-gardish family named Virginia (now also digitized).

    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), Bougainville Neo (2021: 16 styles), Fremantle (1994), Beanwood Script (1997, a calligraphic script co-designed 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 typefaces.

    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 type foundry Bean & Morris.

    In 2015, Russell created Macaroni Sans. In 2017, he added the calligraphic script typeface My Pimp.

    Wei Huang

    Australian type designer. Designer of the free sans typeface family Work Sans (2015), which is also available via Google Fonts. Wei writes: Work Sans is a typeface family based loosely on early Grotesques, such as those by Stephenson Blake, Miller & Richard and Bauerschen Giesserei. The regular weight and others in the middle range are optimized for on-screen text usage at medium-sizes (14px-48px) and can also be used in print design.

    In 2018, Work Sans was forked into Elaine Sans. In 2020, it spawned the custom typeface Prodigy Sans done for Prodigy Education Inc.

    In 2021, Lucas Sharp and My-Lan Thuong, assisted by Wei Huang and Marc Rouault, designed Salter. Salter Roman is based on calligraphic book jackets by Georg(e) Salter from 1941, and Salter Italic is inspired by two of Oscar Ogg's book jacket alphabets from 1942.

    In 2021, Erin McLaughlin and Wei Huang developed the traditional workhorse sans serif typeface Tenorite for Microsoft for use as one of the default fonts in Office apps and Microsoft 365 products. Elements such as large dots, accents, and punctuation make Tenorite comfortable to read at small sizes on screen. [Google] [More]  ⦿
