Teeline Fonts [Craig Eliason]

Teeline Fonts is a digital type foundry launched by Craig Eliason (b. 1969, Houston, TX) in 2010. A professor of modern art and design history in the Department of Art History at the University of St. Thomas in Saint Paul, MN, Craig researches the history of type design, and particularly the history of its classification and vocabulary. He began designing his own fonts in 2008. Craig obtained a Ph.D. from Rutgers in 2002. Read, for example, Face the Nation: National Identity and Modern Type Design 1900-1960.

His typefaces:

  • Ambicase Modern (2010), a unicase font, and Ambicase Fatface (2011).
  • Flipper (2013), later renamed Backflip. Flipper won an award at the Morisawa Type Design Competition 2014.
  • Cuttlefish (2021). A five-headed sans (+variable) superfamily with very different substyles called Neutral, Pragmatic, Optimistic, Luxe and Modern. He writes: Cuttlefish Pragmatic is a friendly sans in the mode of early-20th-century American Gothics. The Optimistic style is inspired by 20th-century ‘serifless romans’ that themselves took inspiration from Renaissance letters. The Modern styles are patterned after 18th-century high-contrast types, but excised of most serifs. Cuttlefish Luxe is a light and sophisticated contrasted sans. The Neutral styles are straightforward grotesques with even stroke weights.
  • Plenaire (2021). A pebbled and speckled optical effect font family.
  • Feneon (2021). An elegant multiline font family with possible uses as a neon font.
