Bart van der Leck

Born in 1876 in Utrecht, died in 1958 in Blaricum. Bart van der Leck was a Dutch painter and designer. With Theo van Doesburg and Piet Mondriaan he founded the De Stijl (abstract, geometric) art movement. In 1930, he was commissioned by Jo de Leeuw, owner of the prestigious Dutch department store Metz&Co. to design interiors, window packaging, branding and advertising. For these print materials van der Leck developed a rectilinear geometrically constructed alphabet. In 1941, he designed a typeface based on this alphabet for the avant-garde magazine Flax. One digital version of this typeface exists: Architype van der Leck (1994, by David Quay and Freda Sack of The Foundry). The wiki page writes: The face is geometrically constructed, and based upon an earlier stencil lettering alphabet van der Leck designed in the early 1930s for use in branding and advertising Jo de Leeuw's presigious Dutch department stores Metz&Co. The face shares structural similarities with Theo Van Doesburg's 1919 geometric alphabet, and anticipates later typographic explorations of geometric reductionism of Wim Crouwel's 1967 New Alphabet and early digital faces like Zuzana Licko's faces Lo-Res and Emperor 8.

One of his alphabets was creatively used by Marc ter Horst in Restaurant Walem.

In 2012, for an exhibition in Paris, Chloe Marchand designed a special van der Leck style poster. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Cubism

From the wiki: Cubism was a 20th century avant-garde art movement, pioneered by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, that revolutionized European painting and sculpture, and inspired related movements in music and literature. The first branch of cubism, known as Analytic Cubism, was both radical and influential as a short but highly significant art movement between 1907 and 1911 in France. In its second phase, Synthetic Cubism, the movement spread and remained vital until around 1919, when the Surrealist movement gained popularity. [...] In cubist artworks, objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstracted instead of depicting objects from one viewpoint, the artist depicts the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context. Often the surfaces intersect at seemingly random angles, removing a coherent sense of depth. The background and object planes interpenetrate one another to create the shallow ambiguous space, one of cubism's distinct characteristics. There is no specific typographic component in cubism, except that some, like Preissig, tried to create the angular types that evoke letters that were broken up and somehow put back together. In recent times, some have taken inspiration from cubist paintings in the selection of shapes of glyph outlines, and called their typefaces "cubist". [Google] [More]  ⦿

Zimmerman, head of the matrix engraving department. at BB&S, probably just before BB&S merged with ATF in 1929, this font of unusual capitals and figures is very large for the body and has no lowercase.

Michael Scarpitti

Mike graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in philosophy. Prolific Columbus, OH-based designer (b. Columbus, OH) whose fonts are mainly available through Scriptorium. Many of his fonts were influenced by roman inscriptional or Trajan types. These include Caesario (1993, a Trajan column font based on Goudy's drawings from 1936), Minerva (1993), Falconis and Vespasiano. Other typefaces with ancient origins include DeBellis, Pomponianus, Praitor, Jerash (1993, with Nalle), Macteris Uncial (1993), Antioch (1993), and Corbei Uncial.

He prepared a set of fonts based on a medieval Latin British manuscript (Pontifica, 1999) and another one called Orlock, based on the lettering in a poster for the German German expressionist silent film Nosferatu. Pontifica was redesigned in 2009 based on the source manuscripts from the Papal Archive. He writes: Pontifica is an example of protogothic calligraphy, a style developed at the monestery of St. Gall in the 12th century to replace Carolingian minuscule with a more efficient and compact system of lettering. Ultimately it became the progenitor of the gothic lettering styles of the late Medieval period.

Nick Curtis

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.

His free fonts are listed elsewhere.

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.

Theo van Doesburg

Dutch cofounder (1883-1931) with Piet Mondriaan, Bart van der Leck, Anthony Kok, Vilmos Huszar and J.J.P. Oud of the De Stijl magazine in 1917. This was also the start of the De Stijl movement. Born Christiaan Emil Marie Küpper on August 30, 1883 in Utrecht as the son of the photographer Wilhelm Küpper and Henrietta Catherina Margadant. Early in his twenties he started using the name of his stepfather Theodorus Doesburg to sign his early paintings. His first exhibition was in 1908. He died in Davos, Switzerland, in 1931. In 1919 he created an alphabet by dividing a square into 25 equal smaller squares. This alphabet predates Bauhaus experimental types by Kurt Schwitters and others. van Doesburg's alphabet has been mimicked and digitized and used as inspiration by many. A partial list:

  • Foundry Architype Van Doesburg (1996, David Quay and Freda Sack, The Foundry).
  • Zwartvet (2002, Max Kisman, Holland Fonts).
  • van Doesburg by Frank Nichols.
  • Bonset (2008, Ricardo Cordoba): the name I.K. Bonset was used by van Doesburg in his Dada poetry. Bonset is a free FontStruct font.
  • Theo (2003, Dan Pike) was inspired by the work of Theo van Doesburg and Theo Ballmer (1902-1965), both of whom created an alphabet based on a basic 5x5 grid system.

Vojtech Preissig

Czech expressionist type designer from Svetec u Biliny, Bohemia, b. 1873. He died in Dachau in 1944. Preissig is representative of the Czech cubist period, 1910-1925. His only book typeface, Preissig Antikva, was cast in 1925 at the Czech State Printing Office foundry in Prague, where he had returned to settle in 1930. This lively angular typeface had a hand-drawn poster-look feel. It was a milestone in Czech type design and served as inspiration for later developments, including typefaces by Menhart, Ruzicka, and Tyfa.

Preissig Antikva was the basis of several digitizations:
