ABOUT







Protimient.com [Ben Jones]

Ben Jones (b. 1980, Buckinhamshire, UK) was a student of typography and graphic communication in Reading (2000-2004). He got his Masters in Typeface Design from the University of Reading in 2011. MyFonts link for Protimient.

His typefaces:

  • Billingsley (2005, Protimient: a script based mainly on a writing specimen of the penman Martin Billingsley, originally published in 1618).
  • Buxus (2005, T26: a shaded display family).
  • Cale (2004).
  • Caligne (2004), Caligne Sans (2004).
  • Clarence (2007) is a sturdy 2-style serif family.
  • Eksja (2009) is a humanist slab serif family which to me feels a lot like a sans family---the slabs added as an afterthought.
  • Emrys (2011) is his graduation typeface at Reading: Emrys is a modulated sans typeface for scripts including Latin, Greek, Armenian, Arabic and Cyrillic. Emrys won Third Prize at Granshan 2011. Emrys morphed into Amrys, which was published in 2019 by Monotype.
  • Gilibert (2005, T-26, a decorative didone face).
  • Greenwood (2006, Protimient: a monospaced, cursive typewriter script, based on a typewritten letter from a Mr J. G. Greenwood Esq. to a branch of the National Westminster bank in Oxfordshire, Great Britain, dated 6th June 1904).
  • Joanna Nova (2015, Monotype). A great 18-font update of Gill's original slab serif, Joanna. There is coverage now of Greek and Cyrillic.
  • Lightbox (2004, Protimient). A legible monoline sans family.
  • ModernModern (2004, Protimient: a squarish didone).
  • Nosta (2006, a nice modern text family).
  • NotanuthaSerif1 (2005, text face; see also here).
  • Pasquinade (2005, blackletter).
  • Stobart (2006) is a script font based on the characters written in a letter by Henry Stobart, dated 1899. It is an Opentype handwriting typeface with 1200 glyphs with heavy character substitution.
  • Travis (2005, Protimient: a legible sans family).
