ABOUT







Peter Saville

Graphic designer (b. Manchester, 1955). Creator in FontShop's FUSE 5 collection of the stencil font Flo Motion. At his site, one can download a number of fonts under the label "N.O." (New Order). These are (I think) Saville's modifications of some typefaces by SSi and Bay Animation: N.O.- Ceremony (of ElseWare: Albertus Medium Regular), N.O.- Substance 1987 (of BodoniBookSSiBook), N.O.- Blue Monday '88 (of Bay Animation: ChiselWide), N.O.- Mesh/1981 - 1982 (of Bay Animation: (FujiExtended), N.O.- 1981 (of Bay Animation: FusiNormal), N.O.- Perfect Kiss/Low-life (of Bay Animation: Geo579Condensed), N.O.- 1993 (of Bay Animation: Hanzel), J.D.- Closer/LWTUA (of SSi: HeliosSSi), N.O.- Movement (seems to be a 1998 original), and N.O.- Brotherhood (of Salina Display SSi).

Biography.

Vitaly Friedman, on advice from Wolfgang Hartmann, states that N.O 1981 is indeed licensed and that other fonts presented in the Peter Saville Graphic Design Fonts Collection are the illegal copies of licensed, copyrighted fonts as well.
