FontGroup [Michael Hernan]

Creator of the Neotechnic series of (free) fonts: Accudigit Regular, Accudigit Body, Parma, Intermatrix (1998), Matricies, Hako, Basic. The designer, Michael Hernan made these fonts between 1995-1998, and writes: About Neotechnic Series: This series of Fonts reflect the information industry at the end of the 20th century and its obsession with classification. Each typeface captures a different aspect of our recent info-culture. He obtained an MA in typeface design from the University of Reading in 2008. At Reading, he designed Pseudo (2008). He started FontGroup in 2008, but that no longer exists (and the link died). His old site, sitehernan, has not been updated in many years.
