Terrestrial Design [Carl Crossgrove]

Terrestrial Design is Carl Crossgrove's web site. Crossgrove graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in Printing /Typography, and has shown a life-long interest in calligraphy and lettering. Now based in San Francisco, he has worked at Adobe, where he designed the Multiple Master hand-printed (semi-Celtic or stone-carved) families Reliq (1998), Reliq Std Active and Reliq Std ExtraActive in 2002, and where, with the help of Kim Buker Chansler and Carol Twombly, he co-designed the Western fonts (Adobe's Wood Series) Origami (hookish, in the expressionist style of Menghart and Preissig), Pepperwood (1994), Ponderosa (1990), Rosewood (1994) and Zebrawood (1994). He was also active at ITC (ITC Minska, 1996) and Agfa Monotype (Origami, a Menhart or Preissig style family; and Mundo Sans, 2002: a 14-weight humanist family, which includes a fantastic hairline sans).

Other fonts by Crossgrove include Othello (2002, with Steve Matteson), Wakerobin (based on hand-painted billboards, posters and signage lettering of the mid-19th century), Scripsit (which was named Judges' Choice in Serif Magazine's 1996 type design competition), Tarantella Script, Ranunculus, Penmark, Curlz MT (1995, Monotype; with Steve Matteson).

Beorcana (2006) is a 28-part serifless roman in the style of Optima or typefaces like Albertus, Stellar, Tiepolo, Barbedor, Lydian and Amira. In the making since 1992, this flared calligraphic book typeface was released by Monotype in 2006. Stephen Coles states: Beorcana is Crossgrove's best and most complete design yet. I can declare from personal experience that it is beautifully drawn and sets very well, small or large, thanks to three optical size masters. It will be a hit with fans of calligraphic sans serifs like Optima. It won an award at TDC2 2007 and was one of the best types of 2007. Florian Hardwig writes: The typeface has no serifs, yet its the opposite of a grotesque. It exhibits the rhythmic contrast and the humanist proportions of a renaissance roman. Its letters please with vividly dancing forms in every detail. However, this obvious calligraphic derivation never seems inappropriately fancy even the spruce swash italics are down-to-earth in a convenient way. The Thin isn't anemic and the Ultra isn't heavy-handed. Crossgrove really knows his stuff. Beorcana Pro (2006-2013) comes in Regular, Display and Micro styles.

Nebulon (2008) is an organic typeface that won an award at TDC2 2009. This retro-futuristic, soft superelliptical display sans-serif design was renamed Biome a year later.

With Rod McDonald, he created Egyptian Slate (2009, Monotype).

Linotype published ITC Galliard Etext in 2013, after the 1978 garalde typeface by Matthew Carter called ITC Galliard. It lists Carl Crossgrove as its designer.

In 2014, Crossgrove published the Burlingame typeface family at Monotype. He calls this sans collection sturdy, muscular and decisive.

From 2003 until 2014, he designed the OEM Monotype font Halesworth Etext.

In 2017, he published the comic book typeface family Cavolini at Monotype. Still in 2017, Karl Leuthold, Juan Villanueva and Carl Crossgrove co-designed the breezy script typeface Sagrantino (Monotype) in Regular, Highlight and Shadow substyles.

In 2018, Monotype's Carl Crossgrove, Charles Nix, Juan Villanueva and Lynne Yun co-designed Walbaum, a reimagined superfamily with 69 total fonts, in five optical sizes. Monotype writes: Walbaum was meticulously crafted by Monotype's Carl Crossgrove, Charles Nix, and Juan Villanueva to bring Justus Erich Walbaum's high contrast didone style masterpiece to the 21st century. Walbaum has over 600 glyphs with OpenType typographic features like small capitals, old style and lining figures, proportional and tabular figures, fractions and ligatures. Also included in the family are three decorative and ornament fonts.

At the end of 2018, he published the rough-edged calligraphic typeface Amarone at Monotype.

Typefaces from 2019: Mundo Serif (Monotype).
