The Euro Symbol
Designer of the truetype font Euro Collection (1997, with M. Strockis). Alternate URL. [Google] [More] ⦿
At some point, Adobe offered the free fonts Euro Sans, Euro Serif and Euro Mono. For this collection one single-symbol fonts, one needed to register. The single glyph does not correspond to the European specifications: the outlines of the C must be concentric circles, but Adobe's extrema are not lined up as they should. If you prefer a free and anatomically correct font without any licensing restrictions, made to mathematical precision, try my own Eurocrat (2009). [Google] [More] ⦿
Despite contradictory claims by the European politicians like Jacque Santer, then president of the European Commission, the Euro symbol was first designed (in 1973 and 1974) by a German designer, Luxembourg-based euro-fanatic, Arthur Eisenmenger (b. 1914, Basel, Switzerland; d. 2002, Eislingen, Germany), who was the former chief graphic designer of the European Community until his retirement in 1974. He also designed the European Union flag. Eisenmenger claimed that it was in fact he who created the symbol a quarter of a century before its unveiling in 1997. The European commission claimed that it was chosen in December 1996 after an internal competition headed by Yves Thibault de Silguy. [Google] [MyFonts] [More] ⦿
The designer of the well-known Formata typeface (available at Berthold), Bernd Möllenstädt was born in 1943 in Germany and died in 2013. He lived in Westfalia, Berlin and finally Munich. He studied typesetting and graphic design, and joined the Berthold type foundry in 1967. In 1968, he became the head of the type design department, and remained head until 1990. Lange was the artistic director there, and when Lange retired in 1990, Möllenstädt became type director.
He designed two strong sans font families for the Berthold Exklusiv Collection, Formata (1984) and Signata (1993). Formata, a popular sans serif face, is the corporate typeface of Postbank, Allianz, VW Skoda and Infratest Burke.
Since 1998, Möllenstädt has worked independently from his own studio in Munich, and continues his association with Berthold as an independent designer. He most recently completed small caps and fractions for Formata, and added the Euro symbol to many typefaces in the Berthold collection.
At Dalton Maag, he was responsible for SkodaSans (2000-2001), a custom font family that may be downloaded here.
In 2016, URW publised his text typeface Classica Pro, which was unfinished when Möllenstädt died in 2013. The missing styles and details were done under the guidance of Volker Schnebel.
British designer (b. 1968, South East London) of Platelet (1993, inspired by California license plate systems---organic and dysfunctional, and in my view an eyesore) and Boks (1994) at Emigre. A graduate from CalArts in 1994, he returned to London in 1999 for a Masters in Typeface Design at Reading University. He is also a freelance typographic designer whose latest font project is called Protocol, which he originally developed Protocol (2001) as a student at the University of Reading. He works in San Francisco. At ATypI in Rome in 2002, he spoke about the Euro currency symbol. FontShop link. [Google] [MyFonts] [More] ⦿

Jörg Knappen writes: there are now the stable ec fonts Version 1.0 available from the CTAN archives in directory tex-archive/fonts/jknappen/ec. The ec fonts support the complete LaTeX T1 encoding, as defined at the 1990 TUG conference hold at Cork/Ireland. They are intended to be as stable as the cm fonts are, i.e., there shall be no more changes to the tfm files. The ec fonts also contain a Text Companion Symbol font, called tc, featuring many usefull characters needed in typesetting, for example oldstyle digits, currency symbols (including the newly created Euro symbol), the permille sign, copyright, trade mark and servicemark as well as a copyleft sign, and many others. The upcoming release of LaTeX2e will support the ec fonts. The dc fonts, which were termed as preliminary versions, will dissappear from the archives soon. It is suggested, that you replace them entirely by the ec fonts. Let me thank to all the people who have contributed to the success of the ec font project. They are too numerous to mention all of them, but some of them should have a place here: Donald E. Knuth and Richard Southall for designing and coding the cm fonts, which are the base of the ec fonts; Barbara Beeton, Michael Ferguson, and Jan-Michael Rynning for pushing the project into existence; Norbert Schwarz for the first two releases of the dc fonts; Yannis Haralambous for numerous contributions to the METAFONT code; Boguslaw Jackowski and Marek Rycko for designing and programming the Polish letters; Andreas Schwab for finding and fixing some very bad bugs; Daniel Taupin and Denis Roegel for fine-tuning of the accented letters needed in french. The remaining errors and bugs in the distribution are all mine, no one of the persons credited above and the other unnamed contributors should be blamed for them. [Google] [More] ⦿
