[Juan Luis Blanco]

Juan Luis Blanco is a graphic designer, type designer and calligrapher based in Zumaia in the heart of the Basque country. Since 1993, he works as a freelancer graphic designer. In 2013, he obtained an MA in Typeface Design from the University of Reading. Currently he combines calligraphy classes and graphic design with typographic projects that focus on Basque lettering as well as multi script typefaces involving the Latin, Arabic and Tifinagh alphabets.

For his graduation work in the Masters of Type Design program of the University of Reading, Juan Luis Blanco (Spain) created the Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Tifinagh, Arabic typeface family Amaikha (2014). Amaikha is characterized by Latin warmth and roundness.

A list of his typefaces:

  • Akaya Telivigala/Kanadaka. Blanco writes: Akaya is a single weight experimental display typeface in Kannada, Telugu and Latin scripts designed in collaboration with Vaishnavi Murthy (Bangalore, India). Akaya Telivigala and Akaya Kanadaka are made as two separate font files which share a common Latin. Github link. i Google Fonts link for Kanadaka. Google fonts link for Telivigala.
  • Amaikha (2014). His graduation typeface from the University of Reading.
  • Harri (2016, Type-o-Tones). A display font based on the peculiar letter forms used in signs and fascias all over the Basque Country. The letterforms can be traced back to romanesque inscriptions. Harri (stone, in Basque) is an all-caps typeface, and must be ranked as one of the greatest digital typefaces that capture the Basque soul. In 2020, it was republished at Blancoletters. Later in 2020, Harri Text was added. See also Harri text at Type Network.
  • Ingeo (2021). A 9-style geometric sans that oozes confidence and style, and has a senate seat thanks to its pharaonic lower case g.
  • Karela (2017). A humanist slab serif.
  • Qandus (2017), a multiscript typeface co-designed with Kristyan Sarkis and Laura Meseguer. It won a TDC Certificate of Typographic Excellence in 2017. Qandus covers Arabic, Latin and Tifinagh.
  • Tuqbal Pro (2015-2019, by Andreu Balius and Juan Luis Blanco). Tubqal Pro is a tri-script type family based on its previous Tubqal typeface commissioned by the Khatt Foundation as part of the Typographic Matchmaking in the Maghrib 3.0, the 3rd edition of the multi-script typographic research project of the Khatt Foundation. It includes Latin, Arabic (+Farsi) and Tifinagh (for the Tifinagh based languages: Tamazight (Central Atlas), Kabyle, Tamazight (Standard Moroccan), Tachawit, Tachelhit, Tagdal, Tamahaq, Tahaggart, Tamasheq, Tarifit, Tamajaq, Tawallammat, Tamajeq, Tayart, Tumzabt, Zenaga).

Speaker at ATypI 2016 in Warsaw on A Typographic Maghribi Trialogue. In this talk, he explains, together with Laura Meseguer and Krystian Sarkis, the Typographic Matchmaking in the Maghrib project of the Khatt Foundation, which tries to facilitate a cultural trialogue as well as shed a typographic spotlight on the largely ignored region of the Maghreb in terms of writing and design traditions. The specific goal of the collaboration is the research and development of tri-script font families (for Latin, Arabic and Tifinagh) that can communicate harmoniously. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Caroline Aufort

Paris-based creator of Tifinagh (2011), a modular Latin typeface based on letters from the Touareg alphabet. She co-runs Acmé-Paris, a design studio in Paris, with Élodie Mandray. Creators of the heavy monoline sans typeface Acmé (2013), the titling sans typeface Le Creux (2013), and the stitching font Canevas (2013). [Google] [More]  ⦿

Daniel Johnson

Canadian type designer. His typefaces:

  • Aguardiente (2010, heavy sans).
  • Deka (2010, a monospace font designed for very small display sizes).
  • Didact Gothic (2010, a simple and readable sans i in the form most often used in elementary classrooms).
  • He contributed to the GNU Freefont project. In particular, he created by hand a Cherokee range specially for FreeFont to be "in line with the classic Cherokee typefaces used in 19th century printing", but also to fit well with ranges previously in FreeFont. Then he made Unified Canadian Syllabics in Sans, and a Cherokee and Kayah Li in Mono. And never to be outdone by himself, then he did UCAS Extended and Osmanya. His GNU Freefont ranges:
    • Armenian (serif) (U+0530-U+058F)
    • Cherokee (U+13A0-U+13FF)
    • Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics (U+1400-U+167F)
    • UCAS Extended (U+18B0-U+18F5)
    • Kayah Li (U+A900-U+A92F)
    • Tifinagh (U+2D30-U+2D7F)
    • Vai (U+A500-U+A62B)
    • Latin Extended-D (Mayanist letters) (U+A720-U+A7FF)
    • Osmanya (U+10480-U+104a7)
  • Grana Padano (2010).
  • Judson (2010, designed for African literacy).
  • Jura (2009). A sans family with support for Burmese, Cyrillic and Greek; redesigned and improved by Alexei Vanyashin in 2016; a variable font was added in 2019 by Mirko Velimirovic). Johnson explains: Jura is a family of sans-serif fonts in the Eurostile vein. It was originally inspired by some work I was doing for the FreeFont project in designing a Kayah Li range for FreeMono. (Kayah Li is a language used by a minority people group in Burma. Because the Burmese government suppresses the teaching of minority scripts, the Kayah Li script is taught only in schools in refugee camps in Thailand.) I wanted to create a Roman alphabet using the same kinds of strokes and curves as the Kayah Li glyphs, and thus Jura was born. Github link for Jura.
  • Megrim (2010, a monoline drawing table sans).
  • Pacaya (2013, a medium-weight sans).
  • Pfennig (2010, an extensive humanist sans family).
  • Rahel (2009, Hebrew).
  • Sacco-Vanzetti (2009, sans).
  • Stanislav Caps (2013).
  • Travelogue (2008).
  • Triad Postnaya (2010). An old Church Slavonic typeface and its Latin simulation twin. Free at the Open Font Library. Triod Postnaya attempts to mimic the typefaces used to publish Old Church Slavonic service books prior to the 20th century. It also provides a range of Latin letters in the same style.

Jeroen Hellingman

Dutch creator of an Oriya metafont (1996-1998). From the same source, Malayalam PostScript and TrueType fonts, and Tamazight (Berber) PostScript and TrueType fonts.

Home page. Metafonts can be found here and here. His Malayalam fonts were created as uniform stroke only, while Oriya metafonts exist in both uniform and modulated stroke. Jeroen says: It is my intention to release the fonts under GPL, but not all copies around have this notice on them. The GNU Freefont project included his fonts for the ranges of Oriya (U+0B00-U+0B7F) and Malayalam (U+0D00-U+0D7F). Subsequently, the GNU Freefont project dropped all contributions and support for Oriya. [Google] [More]  ⦿

The 3114 glyph pixel typeface FS Semioriginal covers Hiragana, Katakana, Arabic, Armenian, Hebrew, Bopomofo, Georgian, Greek, and Cyrillic. The 2000+ glyph pixel typeface FS Unoriginal covers Hiragana, Katakana, Arabic, Armenian, Hebrew, Bopomofo and Tifinagh. Other typefaces include FS Fat Piano, FS Typ Stencil (piano key face), FS Frakletter (blackletter) and FS Stupid Me (white on black typeface). [Google] [More]  ⦿
