ABOUT







Yanone [Jan Gerner]

Jan Gerner (b. 1982, Dresden) from Weimar runs Yanone. He grew up in Addis Abbeba. He studied Media at the Bauhaus Universität Weimar in 2003. He still lives and works in Weimar. He designed the (free) informal sans family YanoneKaffeesatz (2005), which is analyzed by Gerrit van Aken. YanoneTagesschrift (2005) is a serif obtained by scanning the felt tip pen traces of a printed serif face--a nice idea! The font is now at Schriftgestaltung. The pixel font Al Abdali 8 was created during his stay with Syntax in Amman/Jordan to match the growing need for joint Arabic/Latin typefaces.

In 2006, Yanone started selling some fonts through MyFonts. These include Monospasz (2006, a manually produced monospace typewriter font family in 5 styles), Liebfraumilch (2009, connected hand) and Pochoir (2006, stencil). And in 2009, the popular free Kaffeesatz became a pay font, FF Kava, at FontFont.

In 2010, Yanone published FF Amman for Latin and Arabic---a bit too angular for my taste, but it has its uses.

In 2011, he obtained a Masters at KABK in the type and media program. His graduation typeface was Antithesis (2011)---it consists of a slab serif, a connected script and a heavy sans. All three have a hand-printed look and should be fine typefaces for signage. Page dedicated to Antithesis. The FontFont version, FF Antithesis, appeared in 2013.Runya (2013) is free Arabic hipster typeface.

At ATypI 2013 in Amsterdam, he introduces Speed Punk, a learning tool to better understand the nature of Bézier curves and their curvature. See also here.

In 2016, he cooperated with Albert-Jan Pool in the development of FF DIN Arabic, which won an award at Granshan 2016.
