Enric Crous-Vidal

Type and graphic designer born in Lerida, Spain (1908), who lived and worked mostly in Paris, where he had emigrated to during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). He died in 1987 in Noyon. All his fonts are available from Neufville. He was the founder of the movement that is known as Grafía Latina (or La Graphie Latine), which promoted the need to create a new system of typically Latin (as opposed to cold geometric nordic) typographic structures, graphics, alphabets and decorative ornaments.

As art director of the Fonderie Typographique Française, he designed these fonts:

  • Champs Elysées (1956).
  • Flash (1953). Digital forms include Neufville's Flash ND and the URW copy called Flashes by Ralph M. Unger (2007).
  • Aragón: an art deco face. This was digitized by Nick Curtis as La Reyna Catalina NF, 2006).
  • Ilerda (1945, Neufville). This typeface is also known as Champs Élysées in France, where it was published by FTF.
  • Les Catalanes (1952). A Western saloon font that was never produced. It was digitized by Nick Curtis as Daliwood NF (2006), and by Harold Lohner as Cattle Annie (2006).
  • Paris Light (1953), Paris Medium (1953), Paris Bold (1953): all published at Neufville.
  • Fuga de Arabescos (1954, Neufville): flowing ornaments.
  • Île de France (1960). An incised typeface.
  • Revivals of other typefaces by Crous-Vidal include Anomique (2014, Benjamin Woodlock).

Gaston Yagmourian

Gaston Yagmourian (b. Argentina) is an independent design director as well as an MFA instructor at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA. Wonderful artsy fonts designed by Yagmourian include Daliesque, KikinCaps, KikinLow, Notgarmon, Surreal, U27fog, U26fog, and Slantalic. Some used to be shareware, some payware. In any case, Gaston has withdrawn from the font business, and that's it. Sad for such a talented person! Ooops---he came back via Behance in 2011, and showed us the custom face San Diego Zoo (2011), which was done with Chiharu Tanaka. In 2012, he published Rantifusa Bold (wood type style).

Terry Wüdenbachs

Snowboarder from Liechtenstein, who designs typefaces at P22 and its descendant foundries such as HWT. The list:

  • His first font was the whacky P22 Catalan (2003), which was inspired by Antonio Gaudi, Joán Miro and Salvador Dali.
  • In 2004, he created BlancoNeg, Mexican Relics (100 dingbats from pre-Columbian Mexico), Sniplash (a 60s cartoon face) and Durer Caps (after Dü'rer's 1525 original).
  • In 2005, he added P22 Mystic (art nouveau).
  • The curly P22 Festiva and P22 Huffer Pro (comic book face) followed in 2009.
  • In 2010, he designed two revivals of Nebiolo work, P22 Nebiornaments, and P22 Slogan (after the 1957 brush font by the same name by Aldo Novarese).
  • In 2012, he created P22 CoDependent, a set of two art deco typefaces that revive of the Independant typeface from 1930 created by Dutch designer Johannes Nicolaas Coenraad Collette along with Jos Dufour from Belgium.
  • In 2012, Terry joined forces with Richard Kegler and published the multilayered Western circus font HWT American Chromatic at Hamilton Wood Type. American Chromatic was originally created by Wm. H. Page & Co. circa 1857-59.

    In 2013, he designed HWT Arabesque for Hamilton Wood Type. This art nouveau / psychedelic typeface was originally produced by the Morgans & Wilcox Co. and the Wm. Page Co. as almost identical designs. Both manufacturers were acquired by Hamilton and offered briefly by Hamilton as design #618. William Page Arabesque was first shown in 1872 and after the Page purchase by Hamilton in 1891, it was renamed to No. 618. Similarly, the Morgan & wilcox arabesque was first shown in 1884, but after morgan's purcghase by hamilton, it was renamed to No. 3189.
