ABOUT







Clark T. Riley

Clark T. Riley (Baltimore, MD) used to run Clark Riley Custom Font Design in the 1990s. His designs included Cairo (a famous free dingbat font), Orchids (a flower dingbat font), PhonBaskewrtown (a phonetic font), and the Recycle dingbats. At that time, his web site was located at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institute in Baltimore, MD. Clark Riley has been growing orchids since 1957 and is a popular speaker on orchids. After a PhD in chemistry from the University of Chicago, he became a Senior Field Engineer for Chesapeake Systems in Baltimore.

He gives the timeline for Cairo: In 1984 the Macintosh was introduced, which included a bitmap dingbat font by Susan Kare called Cairo. In 1992, Clark Riley created an outline (Type 1 Postscript) font based on it. In 1994, this was converted to TrueType technology, with Riley's approval. Cairo Unicode is the same design, updated to use Unicode technology. Download Cairo Unicode (2014) at Open Font Library.
