Acute Studio
[Diana Ovezea]

Born close to the Black Sea coast in Romania, Diana moved to Austria as a child, where she attended the American International School. After graduating from the New Design University in St. Pölten, she worked as a graphic designer, mainly on book and corporate design projects. In 2013, she graduated from the Type & Media program at KABK in Den Haag. Some time later, she set up Acute Studio in Amsterdam under the motto: We like sharp outlines, tight curves, and edgy designs.

Creator of the hairline face Opium (2010) characterized by teardrop terminals. Creator of Paige (2011), developed at the tipoRenesansa 3rd international type design workshop in Ljubljana, Slovenia. This is an attractive and bouncy papercut display face. Marge (2011) is edgy and highly legible even at very small sizes---it was developed at the tipoRenesansa 2nd international type design workshop. Paige Italic (2012) was done at tipoRenesansa 4 and TypeClinic 5 (2012).

Her KABK graduation typeface was Editura (2013), a a type family for serious publications, magazines, as well as non-fiction books.

At The 8th International Typeclinic in 2014, she continued work on an untitled text typeface. At Die Gestalten, she published Paiper, an extraordinarily balanced and readable 6-style text family with angular flared glyphs that are genetically related to folded paper strips.

In 2014, Diana collaborated on the design of HF Stencil with Bold Monday and Studio Thonik. Made for Holland Festival, HF Stencil is based on Glaser Stencil.

In 2016, Diana published Equitan Sans and Equitan Slab at Indian Type Foundry, marrying industrial era rustiness with modern functionality. In 2017, she designed Tiny Sans and Albert Samuels Clock Type. Codesigner in 2017 with Samo Acko and Sabina Chipara of the typefaces Passenger Display and Passenger Serif (2017). Passenger Display is a high-contrast didone-style font family. It is intended for use in headlines, signs, or posters. Passenger Display is a high-contrast didone-style font family. It is intended for use in headlines, signs, or posters.

With Sabina Chipara, she co-designed Bega. Diana Ovezea also published the sharp-edged 14-style Matteo in 2017.

At Future Fonts, she published Bizzarrini (together with Sabina Chipara) and Silverspoon, ca. 2018. She writes about the wonderful Bizzarrini: Though the idea originates from a Stefan Schlesinger ad sketch for a Paris couture house, we straightened up this typeface and made it seem engineered and sharp. It gets its name from the Bizzarrini Manta, a wedge-shaped concept car designed in 1968 by Giorgetto Giugiaro. Bizzarrini has extremely long wedge serifs. Following Schlesinger's sketch, it features very tall capitals with an out-of proportion middle-line (very big heads on S, B and R). Silverspoon is a contemporary take on Copperplate Gothic.

Adrian Frutiger

Famous type designer born in 1928 in Unterseen, Switzerland, who died in September 2015. He closely cooperated with Linotype-Hell AG, after having been artistic director at Deberny-Peignot in Paris since 1952. He established his own studio in 1962 with André Gürtler and Bruno Pfaftli. Art director for Editions Hermann, Paris 1957 to 1967. Frutiger lived near Bern, Switzerland, and was very interested in woodcuts. In 2009, Heidrun Osterer and Philipp Stamm coedited Adrian Frutiger Typefaces The Complete Works (Birkhäuser Verlag), a 460-page opus based on conversations with Frutiger himself and on extensive research in France, England, Germany, and Switzerland. Quote: Helvetica is the jeans, and Univers the dinner jacket. Helvetica is here to stay. He designed over 100 fonts. Here is a partial list:

  • Président (Deberny&Peignot, 1954). Digitized by Linotype in 2003.
  • Delta.
  • Phoebus (Deberny&Peignot, 1953).
  • Element-Grotesk.
  • Federduktus.
  • Ondine (Deberny&Peignot, 1953-1954). The Bitstream version of this font is Formal Script 421. Adobe, Linotype and URW++ each have digital versions called Ondine. Bitstream's Calligraphic 421 is slightly different.
  • Méridien (Deberny&Peignot, 1955-1957). Digitized by Adobe/Linotype in 1989.
  • Caractères Lumitype.
  • Univers (Deberny&Peignot, 1957). About the name, Frutiger wrote I liked the name Monde because of the simplicity of the sequence of letters. The name Europe was also discussed; but Charles Peignot had international sales plans for the typeface and had to consider the effect of the name in other languages. Monde was unsuitable for German, in which der Mond means "the moon". I suggested "Universal", whereupon Peignot decided, in all modesty, that "Univers" was the most all-embracing name!. Univers IBM Composer followed. In 2010, Linotype published Univers Next, which includes 59 Linotype Univers weights and 4 monospaced Linotype Univers Typewriter weights, and can be rented for a mere 2675 Euros. In 2018, Linotype added Univers Next Typewriter.

  • Serifa (1967-1968, Bauersche Giesserei). URW++ lists the serif family in its 2008 on-line catalog. Other names include OPTI Silver (Castcraft), Ares Serif 94, and Sierra. Bitstream published the digital typeface Serifa BT. But it is also sold by Adobe, Tilde, Linotype, URW++, Scangraphic, and Elsner & Flake.

In 2009, that was followed by Neue Frutiger (a cooperation between Frutiger and Linotype's Akira Kobayashi). In fact, Frutiger, the typeface was made for the Charles De Gaulle Airport in 1968 for signage---it was originally called Roissy, and had to be similar to Univers. It was released publically as Frutiger in 1976. The modern Bitstream version is called Humanist 777. Frutiger Next Greek (with Eva Masoura) won an award at TDC 2006. Other digital implementations of Frutiger: M690 (SoftMaker), Quebec Serial (SoftMaker), Frutus (URW), Provencale (Autologic), Frontiere (Compugraphic), Freeborn (Scangraphic), Siegfried (Varityper).

Bio by Nicholas Fabian. Erich Alb wrote a book about his work: Adrian Frutiger Formen und Gegenformen/Forms and Counterforms (Cham, 1998). Winner of the Gutenberg Prize in 1986 and the 006 Typography Award from The Society for Typographic Aficionados (SOTA). Famous quote (from a conversation in 1990 between Frutiger and Maxim Zhukov about Hermann Zapf's URW Grotesk): Hermann ist nicht ein Groteskermann. A quote from his keynote speech at ATypI1990: If you remember the shape of your spoon at lunch, it has to be the wrong shape. The spoon and the letter are tools; one to take food from the bowl, the other to take information off the page... When it is a good design, the reader has to feel comfortable because the letter is both banal and beautiful.

Frutiger's books include Type Sign Symbol and Signs and Symbols. Their Design and Meaning (1989, with Andrew Bluhm, published by Studio Editions, London; Amazon link).

Most notably, Saberrider's fontsract and Stewf's Leaflet family. Using Josef Albers' Kombinationsschrift alphabet (1928-1931) as my foundation, I've been having a lot of fun remixing and experimenting with his letters.).

Ania Kruk

Ania Kruk (b. 1987, Poznan, Poland) is a designer in Barcelona. She has studied towards an MA in design at the University of Aerts in Poznan, 2005-2011 and obtained a Masters in Advanced Typography and Editorial Design in 2010 at Eina (Escola de Disseny i Art, Barcelona).

She created the text typeface Arnie (2011). She writes: Arnie is a text typeface designed for books and poetry. Due to calligraphic origin, rather classical proportions and flat curves, it seems solid and stable. While big counters and varying line weight make it look light and airy in long texts. She also created the signage script face Cookie (2011), which is free at Google Web Fonts. Panna Kotta (2010) is an upright italic. Ladaco (2008) is inspired in Polish folkloric cut-outs.

Krotta One (2012, Google Web Fonts) is an italic typeface. It was renamed Kotta a few days later.

Apple Fonts

Alternate URL. The history of all fonts used and produced by Apple. A brief summary of this:

  • Corporate fonts and brand identity
    • Motter Tektura (designed by Othmar Motter of Voralberger Graphic in 1975): before the first Macintosh, Apple used Motter Tektura to accompany the Apple logo. "According to the logo designer, Rob Janoff, the typeface was selected for its playful qualities and techno look, in line with Apple's mission statement of making high-technology accessible to anyone."
    • Apple Garamond, the new corporate font used when the Macintosh was introduced in 1984. ITC Garamond (Tony Stan, 1977) was condensed to 80% of its normal width by Bitstream, who also adjusted and hinted it. Apple Garamond was used in most of Apple's marketing. The Wikipedia comment: "Many typographers consider ITC Garamond in general, and Apple Garamond in particular, to be poorly designed typefaces. A common viewpoint is that the algorithmic scaling distorted the typeface."
    • Myriad Pro: starting in 2002, Apple began using Myriad Pro Semibold (a sans serif face) in its marketing, gradually replacing Apple Garamond. MyriadPro and MyriadApple can be downloaded here.
    • Gill Sans Regular: used in the marketing of the Newton PDA.
  • Fonts of the original Macintosh All but one of these bitmap fonts were due to Susan Kare. The fonts were originally named after stops along the Paoli, Pennsylvania commuter train line: Overbrook, Merion, Ardmore, and Rosemont. Later, under pressure from Steve Jobs, names of world cities were chosen. A number of different variants of each font were algorithmically generated on-the-fly from the standard fonts. Bold, italic, outlined, underlined and shaded variations were the most common.
    • Cairo: a bitmap dingbat font, most famous for the dogcow at the 'z' character position.
    • Chicago (sans-serif): the default Macintosh system font in System 17.6.
    • Geneva (sans-serif): designed for small point sizes and prevalent in all versions of the Mac user interface.
    • London (blackletter): an Old English-style font.
    • Los Angeles (script): a thin font that emulated handwriting.
    • Monaco (sans-serif, monospaced): a fixed-width font well-suited for 912 pt use.
    • New York (serif): a Times Roman-inspired font.
    • San Francisco: a ransom note face.
    • Venice (script): a calligraphic font designed by Bill Atkinson.
  • Fonts in Mac OS X
    • Lucida Grande: the primary system font in Mac OS X (all versions). Lucida Grande looks like Lucida Sans, but has more glyphs. It covers Roman, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Arabic, Thai and Greek. Many of its 2800+ glyphs were added by Michael Everson to the original collection.
    • Mac OS X ships with a number of high-quality typefaces, for a number of different scripts, licensed from several sources.
    • LastResort (designed by Michael Everson of Evertype): used by the system to display reference glyphs in the event that real glyphs needed to display a given character are not found in any other available font. Wikipedia states: "The glyphs are square with rounded corners with a bold outline. In the left and right sides of the outline, the Unicode range that the character belongs to is given using hexadecimal digits. Top and bottom are used for one or two descriptions of the Unicode block name. A symbol representative of the block is centered inside the square. By Everson's design, the typeface used for the text cut-outs in the outline is Chicago, otherwise not included with Mac OS X. The LastResort font has been part of Mac OS since version 8.5, but the limited success of ATSUI on the classic Mac OS means that only users of Mac OS X are regularly exposed to it."
    • Apple Symbols (2003-2006): a 4000+-glyph dingbat font that complements the symbols from Lucida Grande, inttroduced first in Mac OS X 10.3 ("Panther").
    • Zapfino (a calligraphic typeface designed by and named after renowned typeface designer Hermann Zapf for Linotype, based on an example he first drew in 1944): Zapfino utilizes the most advanced typographic features of the truetype format, and is partially included in OS X as a technology demo for ligatures and character substitutions.
    • Mac OS X Snow Leopard comes with four new fonts in 2009: Chalkduster (emulating chalk on a blackboard), Menlo (a monospaced family based on Bitstream's Vera Sans Mono that replaces Monaco for applications such as Terminal and code editors; see also Deja Vu Sans Serif Mono), Heiti SC and TC and Hiragino Sans GB.
  • Fonts used in other devices
    • Espy Sans: designed in 1993 by Apple's Human Interface Group designed the typeface Espy Sans specifically for on-screen use. It was first used for the Newton OS GUI and later integrated into Apple's eWorld online service.
    • eWorld Tight: a bitmap font used for headlines in Apple's eWorld. The metrics of eWorld Tight were based on Helvetica Ultra Compressed.
    • Chicago (see above): bitmap typeface used in Apple's iPod music player since 2001.

Casady&Greene (Fluentlaserfonts)
[Terry Kunysz]

Casady&Greene, Inc. started out as two separate little companies, CasadyWare and Greene, Inc. CasadyWare, which was founded by Robin Casady in August 1984, began producing Fluent Fonts, which were bitmapped typefaces for the Macintosh. The 1984 set of fonts have copyright lines that mention Richard A. Ware. As soon as PostScript fonts appeared, CasadyWare got hold of the first version of Fontographer and produced the first downloadable PostScript fonts, even beating Adobe, the originators of PostScript, to the punch. These were marketed as Fluent Laser Fonts (FLF) out of Carmel, CA.

The FLF series includes Abilene (Western), Alexandria (1986, slab serif family), Black Knight (1991, blackletter), Bodoni FLF (1986), BodoniUltra (1986, a fat didone), Bonnard (art nouveau), ButtonHighlight, ButtonPlain, Calligraphy (1986), Campanile (a great didone face), Checkbox, Chicago FLF (free at OFL), Collegiate (1988, sports lettering), Coventry Script (calligraphic), Cutouts FLF (1992, cargo stencil), Desperado, Dorovar Carolus (1988, Carolingian), DryGulch, Epoque (art nouveau), FattiPatti, Fletcher Gothic (1992, art nouveau), Galileo (1987, didone), Gazelle (1988, calligraphic script), Gatsby (1986, pure art deco), Giotto, Gregorian (1986, English Gothic style blackletter), Harlequin FLF (1990), Highland Gothic (1992), Jott, Kasse (1992), Kells (modern round Gaelic font, 1988), KeyCaps, La Peruta, Meath (modern round Gaelic font, 1988), Michelle (1992, art deco, marquee face), Micro, MicroExtend FLF (1986, like Microgamma), Monterey (1986, Peignotian), Moulin Rouge (1992, an art nouveau typeface by Richard A. Ware), Nouveau (1990, art nouveau), Paladin (1988, blackletter), Pendragon (1991), Phoenix Script FLF (1990), Prelude (1986, connected script), Regency Script (1986, calligraphic copperplate script), Right Bank (1986, art deco), Ritz (1986, art deco in the style of Broadway), Rocko (1992, rounded like VAG Round), SansSerif FLF (1986, a large geometric sans family), Sedona Script (1990, connected, calligraphic, semi-psychedelic), Slender Gold (1992, script), Vertigo (1992, condensed monoline sans), VertigoPlus, Zephyr Script (1986, brush script).

Many fonts were digitized by Richard Ware, and some were designed by Mike Wright. The contact was Terry Kunysz in Salinas, CA.

On July 3, 2003, Casady&Greene closed it doors permanently. However, one of its designers, Mike Wright, writes: I believe that all the fonts that were developed by the company are now in the public domain. Robin Casady and I are thinking of putting up a site with free downloads of all of the old C&G public domain fonts--mainly as a way of attracting Mac users to see iData 2.

Robin Casady in 2003: I founded Casady Company in 1984 to publish fonts for the new Macintosh. The name changed with incorporation to CasadyWare, Inc. Around this time I met Mike Greene who was looking for a software project to do after SpellsWell. I talked him into doing a program that became QuickDEX. Later CasadyWare, Inc. merged with Greene, Inc. and became Casady & Greene, Inc. Over the years, my role in management reduced as my interests in other areas developed. In the last ten years I have had no official management duties at C&G. About a year ago I removed myself from the Board of Directors.

Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini

Born in Firenze in 1969. Cofounder with Francesco Canovaro and Debora Manetti of the Italian design firm in Firenze called Studio Kmzero. He co-designed some typefaces there such as Arsenale White (2009). Targa Monospace (2002) is a sans inspired by Italian vehicle registration plates. It has an handmade version (Targa Hand) that can be used for comic book lettering.

The handwriting of Lord Byron led Pancini to develop the brush script typeface Byron (2013, Zetafonts).

MyFonts credits him with the rounded avant garde sans family Antipasto (2007), but elswhere we read that this typeface is made by Matteo di Iorio, so there is some confusion. It was extended in 2017 by Pancini as Antipasto Pro.

In 2014, Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini and Francesco Canovaro co-designed Amazing Grotesk (+Ultra). He also designed the calm bold geometric rounded sans typeface Cocogoose (2014; replaced by Cocogoose Pro in 2017) and the stylish deco font Offensive Behaviour. Cocogoose Letterpress is free. Cocogoose is part of the Coco Gothic family, a collection of twelve typefaces each inspired by the fashion mood of every decade of last century, named after fashion icon Coco Chanel. Cocogoose is Coco Gothic for the 1940s.

In 2015, Pancini published the grand family Coco Gothic. This Latin / Greek / Cyrillic typeface family features a small x-height and sligghtly rounded corners to make the avant garde and geometric sans typefaces in vogue in the 1970s come alive again, ready for 21st century fashion magazines. It comes with substyles that recreate many moods, including art nouveau and arts and crafts (Cocotte), Italian propaganda style and Italian deco (Cocosignum), hipster style (CocoBikeR), or Bauhaus (Cocomat). Coco Gothic was initially developed as a corporate font for Lucca Comics & Games Festival 2013. The rounded geometric sans family Cocomat (by Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini, Deborah Manetti and Francesco Canovaro) was inspired by the style of the twenties and the visions of italian futurists like Fortunato Depero, Giacomo Balla and Antonio Sant'Elia.

Still in 2015, Cosimo and Zetafonts published the connected creamy baseball script Bulletto, the grungy handvetica Neue, and the calligraphic wedding typeface Hello Script. In 2015, at Zetafonts, Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini designed CocoBikeR (2015) to celebrate the hipster and bike cultures. CocoBikeR (for Latin, Greek and Cyrillic) is part of the successful Coco Gothic typeface family. In 2017, Pancini designed the 1930s Italian art deco typeface families Cocosignum Maiuscoletto and Cocosignum Corsivo Italico.

Typefaces from 2016: Adlery (a curly brush script), Kitten (Fat, Swash, Swash Monoline, Slant, Bold: signage script family), Adlibitum (a blackletter typeface by Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini and Francesco Canovaro), Morbodoni (a display didone by Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini and Francesco Canovaro).

In 2016, Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini, Andrea Tartarelli, Giulia Ursenna Dorati and Andrea Gaspari co-designed the 1940s vintage brush script typeface Banana Yeti, which is based on an example by Ross George shown in George's Speedball 1947 Textbook Manual. The Zetafonts team extended the original design to six styles and multilingual coverage. The ExtraBold is free. Still in 2016, Pancini designed Calligraphunk, an experimental typeface that mimicks polyrythmic calligraphy, by alternating two sets of lowercase letters to emulate handwriting.

In 2016, Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini, Matteo Chiti, Luca Chiti and Andrea Tartarelli co-designed the retro connected brush script font family Advertising Script, which is based on an example from Ross George's Speedball 1947 Textbook Manual.

Beatrix Antiqua (2016, by Francesco Canovaro, Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini and Andrea Tartarelli). This humanist sans-serif typeface is part of the Beatrix family (Beatrix Nova, etc.) that takes its inspiration from the classic Roman monumental capital model. Its capitals are directly derived from the stone carvings in Florence's Santa Croce Cathedral. Beatrix keeps a subtle lapidary swelling at the terminals suggesting a glyphic serif, similar to Hermann Zapf's treatment in Optima.

Amazing Grotesk (2016) is based on a logo designed by Francesco Canovaro.

Studio Gothic (2017, by Francesco Canovaro, Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini and Andrea Tartarelli) is an 8-style geometric sans family based on Alessandro Butti's geometric sans classic, Semplicita.

Hello Script and Hello Sans can be used for layering and coloring. The Christmas-themed version is Hello Christmas.

Pancini designed the 64-strong typeface family Body Grotesque and Body Text in 2017-2018, together with Andrea Tartarelli. It was conceived as a contemporary alternative to modernist super-families like Univers or Helvetica.

In 2017, Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini and Andrea Tartarelli co-designed the sans typeface family Kabrio, which gives users four different corner treatment options.

Anaphora (2018). Anaphora is a contemporary serif typeface designed by Francesco Canovaro (roman), Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini (italic) and Andrea Tartarelli. It features a wedge serif design with nine weights from thin to heavy. Its wide counters and low x-height make it pleasant and readable at text sizes while the uncommon shapes make it strong and recognizable when used in display size. Anaphora covers Latin, Greek and Cyrillic.

Canovaro's Arista served as a basis for the 29-style monolinear rounded sans typeface family Aristotelica (2018) by Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini and Andrea Tartarelli.

In 2018, he published Radcliffe, with Andrea Tartarelli, a Clarendon revival with Text and Casual subfamilies. Radcliffe (a Clarendon revival by Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini and Andrea Tartarelli), and added the layerable condensed Cocogoose Narrows to the Cocogoose family. Codec (2018) by Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini, Francesco Canovaro and Andrea Tartarelli is a geometric sans typeface family in which all terminal cuts are horiontal or vertical.

His Double Bass (2018) is a jazzy 4-style typeface family that pays tribute to Saul Bass's iconic hand lettering for Otto Preminger's The Man with the Golden Arm film title sequence and other movies, Bass's vibrating, almost brutal cut-out aestethics, and the cartoonish lettering and jazzy graphics of the fifties.

In 2018, he published the sharp wedge serif typeface Blacker to pay homage to the 1970s. Still in 2018, he designed the swooping polyrhythmic calligraphic typeface Calligraphunk. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Additional films were sold to start-up typesetting companies in order to increase their product selection. Font Diner will create new digital versions of the Filmotype collection, recreating it to meet todays graphic design standards. [...] We intend to release the Filmotype library in OpenType format so the original designs can be fully realized with a dynamic feature set including alternate glyph forms and automatic substitutive ligatures.

In 2007, Font Diner started publishing digitizations of the collection: Glenlake (condensed Bank Gothic, by Mark Simonson), MacBeth (script), Alice (casual script), Zanzibar (calligraphic), La Salle (brush writing originally by Ray Baker in the 1950s, named after Chicago's LaSalle Street), Ginger (Mark Simonson; masculine headline typeface genetically linked to Futura), Austin (paintbrush), Brooklyn (hand-printed), Honey (handlettered script), Jessy (handwriting), Modern, Vanity, Filmotype Ford.

Gerry Powell

Type and industrial designer, b. 1899, New York. He had his own design studio and became director of the American Type Founders company, commonly known as ATF. His typefaces:

  • Onyx (1937, ATF). Onyx was designed by Gerry Powell for ATF in 1937. It is a modernization of Modern Roman Bold Extra Condensed, and is virtually an extra condensed version of Ultra Bodoni. Mac McGrew: Linotype classifies the typeface with Poster Bodoni, their equivalent to Ultra Bodoni. Onyx Italic was designed by Sol Hess for Monotype in 1939, and is made as mats only by that company. Onyx is also cast by the [Lettergieterij] Amsterdam foundry as Arsis.

    Digital versions include Onyx (Bitstream), Onyx (Monotype ), Onyx (Tilde), OPTI Onyx (Castcraft), and Onyx MT (Adobe). Arsis is now marketed by Linotype and URW. About Onyx versus Arsis, there has been some discussion by type lovers. Apparently, both were released in 1937, Onyx by ATF and Arsis by Tetterode. It is believed both foundries had a deal on the exchange of some typefaces. Lanston Monotype had a metal Onyx that was probably copied from the ATF version, and the Monotype UK metal Onyx was probably a copy of Lanston Monotype. The current digital version of Monotype seems to be made after the Monotype UK metal version. The Bitstream digital version was copied from the ATF Onyx typeface.

  • Stymie (ATF, 1935-1937, with Sol Hess). This was a Morris Fuller Benton design from 1931 created in reaction to the popular slab serif Memphis. Now available at Bitstream.
  • Stencil (ATF, 1937). Versions of this rounded stencil typeface exist at Bitstream, Linotype (1997, a Cyrillic version by Alexey Chekulaev), URW++, Adobe and Elsner&Flake. Mac McGrew: Stencil is a heavy roman letter with white breaks in the thinner strokes as though done with the traditional cut-out stencil. There are two versions of the type, both issued in 1937. The one drawn by R. Hunter Middleton for Ludlow appears to have reached the market first, having been advertised in June of that year. Its basic letter is much like a Clarendon (compare Craw Clarendon). The ATF version by Gerry Powell was ready the following month; it is narrower but has a bolder effect. Neither font has lowercase, but the ATF typeface is cut in a range of sizes, while Ludlow offers only one size.
  • Daily News Gothic (1938, ATF). Cut for the Daily News newspaper.
  • Spartan Bold Condensed (1940, ATF).

Image Club Graphics
[Greg Kolodziejzyk]

Image Club Graphics was founded by Greg Kolodziejzyk from Calgary, Alberta, in 1985. ICG sold fonts at about 30 dollars per typeface around 1992 and became successful as a font distributor and direct marketer and software developer. They issued new catalogs regularly. The most recent edition of the CD (called Letterpress 7.0) cost $1500 for 890 fonts. They also had a wide variety of artwork. The ITC on Display CDROM cost 3000 dollars for 375 display fonts.

Greg writes: In 1994 I sold Image Club to Adobe Systems of Mountain View, California. At that time, Image Club was distributing over 10 million software catalogs to it's customers world wide. With sales topping $20 million in 1996, Image Club is very well known in the industry as a successful direct marketer and software developer. [...] The company still operates in Calgary, but has been purchased back from Adobe by the manager who I had hired years ago who changed the name to Eyewire. In 1998, Eyewire was sold to Getty Corporation for a whopping $30 million.

The ICG site said at one point that Image Club no longer exists. As a company, it ceased to be sometime between our purchase by Aldus in 1994 and our rebranding as Adobe Studios in 1998.

Until recently, the Image Club Typeface Library and Image Club clip art products were available at EyeWire. Eyewire then became Veer. The ICG library can now be bought at MyFonts. List of available ICG fonts. Martin Kotulla states that ICG copied fonts in an aggressive manner, and finds it ironic that this pirate was bought by Adobe. Greg Kolodziejzyk's reply: You should add that all fonts "aggressively copied" by this "pirate" were licensed from the foundries who owned the copyrights to those fonts. I can't tell you how many 100's of thousands of dollars we paid over the years to foundries as licensing fees. This statement is false.

Selected typefaces: Eclat (retro signage script), Cariola Script Std (a wide connected script by James West).

The National Printers' Material Co. of New York also offered a similar Tuscan Extended.

FontShop published his school project font Quixo as FF Quixo in 2013. Quixo won an award at TDC 2014.

In 2014, Frank designed the free Source Serif typeface family at Adobe, to accompany Paul Hunt's Source Sans Pro (2012).

Manfred Klein's Fonteria
[Manfred Klein]

Prolific Frankfurt-based designer, born in Berlin in 1932, who studied typesetting at the Kurier in Berlin, later in Typografische AG (a work-group). His teacher was Berthold's G. G. Lange. Worked as a Creative Director and then as a freelancer for several companies, including Stempel and Monotype. Since 1990, prolific font creator, with fonts appearing at Fontshop, Fonthaus, Elsner and Flake, Alphabets Inc, Apply Design Group, and Medienwerkstatt Muehlacker (school fonts). His fonts are partly commercial and partly freeware. They are invariably stylish, original, and often funny. His looks at type as an essential part of visual communication, and that theme unifies his work. It gives his typefaces a unique cachet. As a result, Klein is one of my favorite font designers.

Nathalie Hallman

Illustrator Nathalie Hallman (Stockholm, Sweden) explains the motivation behind her decorative caps typeface Egon Schiele (2013): Typeface built out of image cut-outs from works by Austrian expressionist painter Egon Schiele (1890-1918). A protégé of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele's paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism. From 2012 until 2015, she studied at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm.

She drew an ornamental caps alphabet called Ribbon (2012).

Neubau Berlin (or: NB Typography, or: Neubau Laden)
[Stefan Gandl]

Stefan Gandl was the designer at Designer Shock in Berlin of the pixel fonts DS1D, DS2D, DS3D, DSClone, DSClone3D, DSCutout, DSImitate, DSMufdi, DSMufdi3DL, DSMufdi3DR, DSNSW45, DSNSW55, DSNSW65, DSNSW75, DSNSW85, DSNSW95, DSP9RMX (with Markus Angermeier), DSP9RMX3D, DSSQR35, DSSQR45, DSSQR55, DSSQR553DL, DSSQR553DR, DSSQR65, DSSQR75, DSSQR85, DSTicket35, DSTicket45, DSTicket55, DSTicket65, DSTicket75, DSTicket85, DSTicket95, DSVDOTXT1, DSVDOTXT2, DSVDOTXTError. At the end of 2001, he established Neubau Berlin or NB Typography. He created DS Yakuti (experimental) and DS Lane (2001, trilined) at Die Gestalten. Fonts at Neubau include NB55RMS, NB55RBX, NB55RLS, NB55MS, NB55BX, NB55SET, NBFETT, NBFORM, NBRUND, NBTRANSFER, NBUNIVERS, and NBBLOCK, which are all mostly futuristic-looking designs. In 2008, they added the beautiful 6-weight (35, 45, 55, 65, 75, 85) NBGrotesk family (+Mono, +Mono Stencil), also by Stefan Gandl. In the Neubau series, we also find the gorgeous didone display typeface NB Antiqua Nero (+Italic), NB Antiqua Roman, Antiqua Libro, and NB Typewriter.

NB Architekt and NB Architekt Neue (2015) pay tribute to blueprint typefaces used during the Letraset era. The typeface is a classic modern monoline monospace that was originally designed by Gandl in 2002 and named NB55RMS.

Neubau made a concerted effort in the Akzidenz Grotesk genre. The classical AG became the starting point for the development of Neubau's distilled grotesque NBGrotesk (2008)---a strongly restricted, grid-based, brutally honest and optically non-corrected mono line type system comprising 28 styles. An optically balanced version of NB Grotesk's skeleton resulted in Neubau's popular NB International (2014) type system paying homage to the "international style" era. Coming full circle with NB International's conceptual successor---NB Akademie---(2016) is a more distinctive and refined follower inspired by the studio homegrown Berlin influences. The in house, non-retail and beta versions of NB Akademie are called NB National.

Saul Bass

New York-born type designer and film director, 1920-1996, known for movie title sequences, famous logos (like that of Minolta), and that mid-20th century look. He designed the artsy Rainbow Bass (1982). MyFonts link. At Bass's site, one can find the Mac font Hitchcock made by Matt Terich. Rainbow Bass, a vertically striped disco style design, was remade by Nick Curtis as Backstage Pass (2008), Kymmera Deco NF (2011), and High Five and High Five Jive. Harold Lohner's Alumino (2008) was inspired by Saul Bass's design for the aluminum company Alcoa. Saul (Laura French, 2011) is based on the cut-out letter movie titling style used by Bass in some movies. In 2015, Robin Lassalle created Saul Bass Font to honor Saul's genre. Zetafonts pays tribute to Bass in their Double Bass (2018, by Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini).

Jennifer Bass (his daughter) and Pat Kirkham published Saul Bass: A Life in Film&Design (2011). The book's blurb: This is the first book to be published on one of the greatest American designers of the 20th Century, who was as famous for his work in film as for his corporate identity and graphic work. With more than 1,400 illustrations, many of them never published before and written by the leading design historian Pat Kirkham, this is the definitive study that design and film enthusiasts have been eagerly anticipating. Saul Bass (1920-1996) created some of the most compelling images of American post-war visual culture. Having extended the remit of graphic design to include film titles, he went on to transform the genre. His best known works include a series of unforgettable posters and title sequences for films such as Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo and Otto Preminger's The Man With The Golden Arm and Anatomy of a Murder. He also created some of the most famous logos and corporate identity campaigns of the century, including those for major companies such as AT&T, Quaker Oats, United Airlines and Minolta. His wife and collaborator, Elaine, joined the Bass office in the late 1950s. Together they created an impressive series of award-winning short films, including the Oscar-winning Why Man Creates, as well as an equally impressive series of film titles, ranging from Stanley Kubrick s Spartacus in the early 1960s to Martin Scorsese s Cape Fear and Casino in the 1990s. Designed by Jennifer Bass, Saul Bass's daughter and written by distinguished design historian Pat Kirkham who knew Saul Bass personally, this book is full of images from the Bass archive, providing an in depth account of one of the leading graphic artists of the 20th century.

Susan Kare

Born in 1954 in Ithaca, NY, Susan designed some of the original bitmap fonts for the original Mac in 1983-1984, including Chicago, New York, Monaco (download), FiveDots, Geneva, Cairo (dingbat font), LosAngeles, Athens and San Francisco (1984, ransom note font), while being a Creative Director at Apple (1982-1985). For Danger Research, she created the bitmap fonts Hamilton 5, Hamilton 6, Waverley 5, Waverley 6, Bryant 7 (2000). Interview with Cybergrrl. Atomic Media sells these pixel fonts of hers: Kare Five Dots (family), Ramona (script pixel font), Harry, Everett, Kare Six Dots (family), Biology (dings), Kare Dingbats, MiniFood, Ned, Sampler.

MyFonts catalog. Interview.

She explains the choice of names for the original Mac fonts: The first Macintosh font was designed to be a bold system font with no jagged diagonals, and was originally called "Elefont". There were going to be lots of fonts, so we were looking for a set of attractive, related names. Andy Hertzfeld and I had met in high school in suburban Philadelphia, so we started naming the other fonts after stops on the Paoli Local commuter train: Overbrook, Merion, Ardmore, and Rosemont. (Ransom was the only one that broke that convention; it was a font of mismatched letters intended to evoke messages from kidnappers made from cut-out letters). One day Steve Jobs stopped by the software group, as he often did at the end of the day. He frowned as he looked at the font names on a menu. "What are those names?", he asked, and we explained about the Paoli Local. "Well", he said, "cities are OK, but not little cities that nobody's ever heard of. They ought to be WORLD CLASS cities!" So that is how Chicago (Elefont), New York, Geneva, London, San Francisco (ransom note font), Toronto, and Venice (Bill Atkinson's script font) got their names.

Kare is also known for the original set of Mac icons.

VMF Fonts
[Vicky Mardian]

Vicky Mardian (VMF Fonts) is the Bandung, Indonesia-based designer (b. 1988) of the pirate ship and/or tattoo font Nina Script (2012). The Pro version of this font can be bought at MyFonts. Lina Script Pro (2012), which was done with Mans Grebäck, looks awfully similar, so perhaps Vicky was forced to change the name by outside forces. Mardian (2012, with Mans Grebäck) and Brother Tattoo (2012, at Mans Grebäck) are more calligraphic tattoo fonts by her.

In 2013, Vicky published Homi Script (tattoo font), the (tattoo) script typeface Anha Queen, the tattoo typeface Pure Black Demo (2013), the spurred tattoo typeface Lafayet Scripts, and the spurred tattooish (incomplete) logotype font Los Angeles.

Typefaces from 2014: Deadly Heat (metal band typeface), Home Brush Font Script, Avigo (spurred Victorian), Hellter VMF (spurred tattoo font), Daisy Shop, Cotte VMF, Fonika VMF (signage script), Gold and Bone (incomplete Victorian face).

Zetafonts (or: Studio Kmzero, or: ZeroFont)
[Francesco Mistico Canovaro]

Italian design firm in Firenze consisting of three graphic designers, Francesco Canovaro, Debora Manetti, and Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini. It has evolved into Italy's premier and most prolific typefoundry. Canovaro's Behance link. Also called ZeroFont and Zetafonts, this typefoundry exhales joy---in every design and presentation, the passion of the designers bubbles to the surface. Blending a delicious sense of humour and a great aesthetic taste, Zetafonts is a typographic delight. Their typefaces:

  • Adlibitum (2018). A textura blackletter typeface family.
  • Anaphora (2018). Anaphora is a contemporary serif typeface designed by Francesco Canovaro (roman), Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini (italic) and Andrea Tartarelli.

In 2018 the family was completely redesigned by Andrea Tartarelli, expanding the original glyph set to include Cyrillic and Greek and adding three extra weights and italics. The restored and revamped version is named Sugo Pro Classic.

Corporate typefaces were designed for Lucca Comics and Games, Digitalic Magazine, Kair, Unicoop, and Istituto Europeo di Design.
