ABOUT







Vladimir Andrich

Main type designer (b. 1915) at AlphaType in Niles, IL. Bitstream states: AlphaType Corporation, a family-owned company, was founded by Al and Beatrice Friedman in the mid-1960s to make high quality but inexpensive phototypesetters for advertising typographers. In 1981 Berthold acquired AlphaType.

His typefaces:

  • Allan (1978, Alphatype).
  • American Gothic (Alphatype). A copperplate gothic based on Frederic Goudy's Copperplate Gothic from 1904. For a digital version, see URW's American Gothic.
  • Andrich Minerva (1965, VGC). This typeface won Second Prize in the 1965 VGC National Type Face Design Competition.
  • Beatrice Script (Alphatype).
  • Contemp (Alphatype).
  • Cremona in 1982 for Alphatype, now available at Berthold. A macho text typeface. Cremona is C820 in the Softmaker library.
  • Magna Carta (1974, Alphatype).
  • Vladimir Script (1966, Alphatype), a calligraphic script. Digital versions at URW++, Elsner & Flake and Linotype. Vladimir Script is called Violin Script in the Softmaker collection.
