ABOUT







Ray Baker

Designer who worked for VGC in the phototypesetting era. He created ITC Quorum in 1977, a font halfway between serif and sans, and the wide copperplate sansserif font ITC Newtext in 1974. Digital versions of the latter exist at Elsner&Flake and Softmaker [Q853 Flare and Quagga on the SoftMaker MegaFont XXL CD, 2002].

At Filmotype, he made the brush script typeface LaSalle (1950s), which was digitized in 2008 by Stuart Sandler at Font Bros in 2008 as Filmotype LaSalle. In 2010, MyFonts credits Patrick Griffin and Rebecca Alaccari with the digitization though. Other Filmotype typefaces digitized in 2011 include Filmotype Harmony (original from 1950), Filmotype Kentucky (a 1955 original), Filmotype Kingston (a 1953 original), Filmotype Hamlet (a 1955 original), all in the connected signage type category, and all done by Patrick Griffin and Rebecca Alaccari. The latter two also digitized Filmotype Lucky (2012), a signage typeface from 1953.
