Canadian type designer. His typefaces:
- Aguardiente (2010, heavy sans).
- Deka (2010, a monospace font designed for very small display sizes).
- Didact Gothic (2010, a simple and readable sans i in the form most often used in elementary classrooms).
- He contributed to the GNU Freefont project. In particular, he created by hand a Cherokee range specially for FreeFont to be "in line with the classic Cherokee typefaces used in 19th century printing", but also to fit well with ranges previously in FreeFont. Then he made Unified Canadian Syllabics in Sans, and a Cherokee and Kayah Li in Mono. And never to be outdone by himself, then he did UCAS Extended and Osmanya. His GNU Freefont ranges:
- Armenian (serif) (U+0530-U+058F)
- Cherokee (U+13A0-U+13FF)
- Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics (U+1400-U+167F)
- UCAS Extended (U+18B0-U+18F5)
- Kayah Li (U+A900-U+A92F)
- Tifinagh (U+2D30-U+2D7F)
- Vai (U+A500-U+A62B)
- Latin Extended-D (Mayanist letters) (U+A720-U+A7FF)
- Osmanya (U+10480-U+104a7)
- Grana Padano (2010).
- Judson (2010, designed for African literacy).
- Jura (2009). A sans family with support for Burmese, Cyrillic and Greek; redesigned and improved by Alexei Vanyashin in 2016; a variable font was added in 2019 by Mirko Velimirovic). Johnson explains: Jura is a family of sans-serif fonts in the Eurostile vein. It was originally inspired by some work I was doing for the FreeFont project in designing a Kayah Li range for FreeMono. (Kayah Li is a language used by a minority people group in Burma. Because the Burmese government suppresses the teaching of minority scripts, the Kayah Li script is taught only in schools in refugee camps in Thailand.) I wanted to create a Roman alphabet using the same kinds of strokes and curves as the Kayah Li glyphs, and thus Jura was born. Github link for Jura.
