ABOUT







ISIA Urbino [Luciano Perondi]

Italian Institute with type classes led by Luciano Perondi. Aka Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino. In 2008, they made the typewriter typeface Lekton (free), about which they write: The typeface has been designed at Isia Urbino by the students Luna Castroni, Stefano Faoro, Emilio Macchia, Elena Papassissa, Michela Povoleri, Tobias Seemiller, and the teacher Luciano Perondi (aka galacticus ineffabilis). Lekton is inspired by some of the typefaces used on the Olivetti typewriters. We thank Gianmaria Capello for his precious support. This typeface has been designed in 8 hours. Lekton is an open source project to which other people are invited to contribute. Dafont link. Open Font Library link. Google Fonts link. Between 2008 and 2010, the following people contributed: Paolo Mazzetti, Luciano Perondi, Raffaele Flato, Elena Papassissa, Emilio Macchia, Michela Povoleri, Tobias Seemiller, Riccardo Lorusso, Sabrina Campagna, Elisa Ansuini, Mariangela Di Pinto, Antonio Cavedoni, Marco Comastri, Luna Castroni, Stefano Faoro, Daniele Capo, Jan Henrik Arnold. Minimal adaptations of Lekton (like a dotted zero) led to Lekton Code (2017), a programming font.

In 2009, this was followed by another open source type family, Titillium, a clean organic sans that became quite popular. This huge typeface family made it to Google Web Fonts in 2012. The team says: The aim of the project is the creation of a collective fonts released under OFL. Each academic year, a dozen students work on the project, developing it further and solving problems. Any type designer interested in the amendment or revision of Titillium is invited to co-operate with us, or develop their own variants of the typeface according to the terms specified in the Open Font license. Besides Luciano Perondi, people involved in the direction of the project include Marcello Signorile, and Manuel Zanettin. Diego Gusti developed the first prototype of Titillium.
