ABOUT







Georg Duffner

Austrian designer who is trying hard to give the free software world an excellent qualitatively competitive free Garamond family. At Google Web Fonts, we find his EB Garamond family (2011), which covers Latin and Cyriilic. It is named after Egelnoff and Berner.

He explains: The source for the letterforms is a scan of a specimen known as the Berner specimen, which, composed in 1592 by Conrad Berner, son-in-law of Christian Egenolff and his successor at the Egenolff print office, shows Garamont's roman and Granjon's italic fonts at different sizes. Hence the name of this project: Egenolff-Berner Garamond. Also planned are polytonic Greek, IPA and ornaments.

In 2017, Octavio Pardo entered the EB Garamond project. The fonts can now be downloaded from Github.

Designer of the free font OMW Ayembedt (2013): Ayembedt is a font aiming to recreate the symbolic typeface called Daedric, found in the Elder Scrolls video game series, most notably in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
