Anne Ulku is an established designer based in Minneapolis, MN. She graduated from Minneapolis College of Art&Design in 2007. Her typefaces include Kazootie (2011, Chank Foundry), which was inspired by cut-paper shapes and named after the hand puppet character Rootie Kazootie in a 1950s children's television show. Together with Chank Diesel, she created an exclusive custom typeface design for the 2011 Target Halloween campaign---a complement to the cut-paper art designs of Andrea Deszö. She also made Vintage Noveau Italian (2012), the collage typeface Particulate (2012, free at Chank Diesel's place), Indian (2012, a retro motorcycle script font done with Chank Diesel), and the sewing machine font Stitch (2012).
In 2015, she hooked up with Olson for a new typeface for Porsche. Anne writes: Porsche has always had a very clean and structured, well-known visual brand. Their custom headline font, Porsche Franklin Gothic, happens to be the exact same as Franklin Gothic. In order to create a refresh of the Porsche brand, while still maintaining the established look, there was opportunity for a new typeface. The core of the new typeface is based on the Porsche logo, as well as typeface Deutsches Institut für Normung 145---a precise, technical typeface; also the standard for German road signs. With a strong racing history, additional visual cues were also used in creating a truly unique, custom Porsche typeface.

Very beautiful web page, and fantastic fonts in all respects!
Free typefaces: 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 typefaces 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.

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.
Typefaces from 2016: Crave Sans.

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, 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.
