Anton Koovit

Anton Koovit was born in Tallinn, Estonia, in 1981, and studied graphic design at the Estonian Academy of Arts, ESAG Paris and at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. In 2006, he obtained a masters in type design at KABK in Den Haag. Anton set up his own company Khork OÜ in 2006. In 2007 he moved to Berlin, Germany. He is "extraordinary assistant professor" of typography/type design at the Estonian Academy of Arts.

In 2012, he and Yassin Baggar set up Fatype, a type foundry in Berlin and Neuchatel, Switzerland.

His most well known typeface design is Adam BP (2007, B&P Foundry), a 4-weight sans family. He also designed Aleksei (2010, unreleased serif face), GQ Slab, GQ Baton (b Anton Koovit and Yassin Baggar), U8 (2010: a grotesk family based on lettering in the Berlin underground), Arvo (2010: a free slab serif family at Google Font Directory, codesigned with Yassin Baggar).

Experimental faces by him include Kork Sausage, Boudo (collage alphabet), Planton, Velo (geometric).

Meie Script (2012, John Kallas and Mihkel Virkus, free at Google Web Fonts) is described as follows: Meie Script is a typeface, which is based on the original 1910 Estonian handwriting standard. It is less flamboyant then its Western European contemporaries. Estonian handwriting has been influenced greatly by German and Russian handwriting styles and Meie Script embodies a mixture of those two styles.

Libertine Open Fonts Project
[Philipp H. Poll]

Now, here is a project with a name I like! This project by Philipp H. Poll has been started in order to create fonts that can be released under the GNU Public License. As of early 2005, we have the following Times New Roman lookalikes: LLibertineCaps, LinLibertine, LinLibertine-Italic, LinLibertineBd. Libertine Grotesque is next on the list of things to do. The fonts come in truetype and fontforge (SFD) text formats. Linux Libertine covers a big range of Unicode, including all characters in MES-1 (Afrikaans, Albanian, Basque, Breton, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Esperanto, Estonian, Faroese, Finnish, Frensh, Frisian, Galician, German, Greenlandic, Hungarian, Icelandic, Irish Gaelic (new orthography), Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Luxemburgish, Maltese, Manx Gaelic, Moldavian (with restrictions), Northern Sámi, Norwegian, Occitan, Polish, Portuguese, Rhaeto-Romanic, Romanian (with restrictions), Scottish Gaelic, Slovak, Slovenian, Lower Sorbian, Upper Sorbian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Welsh (with restrictions)), IPA, Greek, Cyrillic, math symbols, and a host of other symbol and language sets. TeX archive. The typophiles are not impressed. Charles Ellertson writes: The bowl of the "a" doesn't fit other letters, the top and terminal of the "f" doesn't know where it is going, the descender of the "y" doesn't balance quite right, and the serif on the upper arm of the "z" (which probably reminded the original poster of Caslon) seems out of place. I get the impression, again from the small sample, that the font doesn't quite know whether it is supposed to be slightly condensed or slightly expanded.

In 2007, the following weights are available: Normal, Kursiv, Fett, Fett Kursiv, Kapitaelchen, Unterstrichen, Grotesk. As a measure of the success of the font, we find that is now used on the logo of Wikipedia.

As a companion font, they offer Linux Biolinum (2010): The Biolinum is an organic sans-serif and could be also described as organogrotesque (non-linear sans serif). It is still in a beta stage. Biolinum is meant for emphasizing titles but could be used also for short passages of text. For longer texts a serif font such as the Libertine should be used in favour of readability The Biolinum has the same vertical metrics and visual weight as the Libertine, so that it fits perfectly to the Libertine and can be also used for emphasizing within the body text.

In 2012, Bob Tennent created type 1 versions of Biolinum and Libertine.

Mart Anderson

Art Director at Vatson & Vatson (now Vatson Wunderman) in Estonia. At ATypI 2005 in Helsinki, he spoke about Digitizing the "Estonian national" typefaces. In his own words: His fonts Pagana, Vaderi and others are based on a lettering of such Estonian mid-20th century typographers as Günther Reindorff, Paul Luhtein and Villu Toots. ATypiI reports: Mart Anderson is producing a range of revival typefaces based on the lettering on 20th century Estonian book designers. The character of their (mainly pen-drawn) work is rather like woodcut lettering, with gently curved slab sides. To make them suitable for typesetting, the characters have been slightly tidied up. Sample of his work on posters, 2005-2006. Scans of faces: Sula (2005, flowing and angular), Panin (2006, playful), EiBanner (2006, comic book face), AmaKaas (2005, again that soft angular theme).

Synerga Pro (2014) is a humanist slab serif with rounded terminals.

Sarah Lazarévic

Ex-student at the Ecole Estienne in Paris (b. Estonia) whose diploma work consisted of the creation of typeface in the style of a first century face found in an archeological site near Millau in France. Graphic and type designer in the 15th arr. in Paris. Her early typefaces:

  • Métallo (2005): a futuristic text family.
  • Vitalis (2005): titling stone-carved face in the style of a first century face found in an archeological site near Millau in France.
  • Néva (2005): a Cyrillic didone face.
  • Pop (2005).

Designer of the Fournier era family Rameau (2011, Linotype). Linotype writes: Sarah Lahzarevic is a graphic designer and typographer. She has worked for ten years with the photographer Max Yves Brandily. She is now working as a freelance graphic and type designer for clients such as the French Post Office (La Poste), Millau City Council and the International Francophone Organisation. She teaches graphics and typography at the Ecole Professionnelle Supérieure d'Arts Graphiques et d'Architecture de la Ville de Paris (Graduate Training School in Graphic Arts and Architecture in Paris). She is also developing her own work in copper-plate engraving. She derived the italics of Rameau from the manuscript of the opera Les fêtes de l'hymen et de l'amour, the music for which was composed by Jean-Philippe Rameau in 1747. Linotype: In the 18th century, musical compositions were published in the form of impressions from copper plates that had been hand-engraved in contrast with books and other texts, which were printed from moveable lead type. The italic letters of Rameau include many ligatures and are thus typical of the engraving style of the period.
