ABOUT







Flanker (or: Studio di Lena) [Leonardo Di Lena]

Flanker, or Studio Di Lena, is the foundry of Italian type designer Leonardo Di Lena (b. 1975, Rome). Initially, it offered fresh free designs of classics. In 2012, it went commercial. Their fonts:

  • Bodoni Flnk.
  • CNR lineare: athletic lettering.
  • Didot Flnk.
  • Doppio Senso: inspired by the 1992 traffic signal typeface in Italy, Transport D.
  • Elettra (2013). A transitional typeface with extra long serifs and several didone traits. For display work.
  • Flanker: classical roman face.
  • Flanker Garaldus (2012). Based on a 1956 font by Aldo Novarese.
  • Griffo Flnk: A multistyle family after typefaces like Bembo.
  • Imperator: a classical roman face.
  • Italian Typewriter (2012). A family of monospaced typewriter typefaces based on Italian typewriters of the thirties and forties.
  • Lello: another classical roman face.
  • Magnificat (2011): after Friedrich Peter's ornamental font from 1975. Free download at Dafont.
  • Marantz: fat art deco face, after the logo of the sound system company.
  • Marlboro Flnk: ultra condensed and tall.
  • Poliphili (2017). This is a serious attempt at a revival of the elegant typeface used in Hypnerotomachia Poliphili (1499, publ. Aldus Manutius) that was cut by Francesco da Bologna. That roman font in turn was a revised version of the type used in 1496 for Pietro Bembo's De Aetna.
  • Flanker Ruano (2013). Based on a chancery typeface by Raffaelo Bertieri (1926).
  • Selene (2013). A monoline sans. Followed by Selene Book (2021: a 14-style geometric sans with art deco influences in some styles).
  • Semplicità (2014-2015): a remake of the art deco sans by Butti and Novarese in 1930.
  • Shock to the system: an original in the cyberpunk style.
  • Sony: after the Sony logo letters.
  • Flanker Tanagra (2022). Leonardo writes about this condensed vintage serif: In order to give new imput to the art of typeface design in Italy, Nebiolo Company held, in March 1910, an artistic competition for a new alphabet conception, so the best-ranked design would be transformed into a real new typeface. 42 competitors participated and, although the first prize was not technically awarded, "Ancora" resulted as the best typeface, created by the designer-typographer Natale Varetti of Turin. Nonetheless, the new alphabet was transformed into a full-fledged metal typeface in 1924, renamed "Tanagra" in honor of the Greek city in the center of Boeotia.
  • There's nothing money can't buy: a sans.
  • Titano: an original art deco sans family.
  • Total Eclipse: futuristic.
  • Traiano: Trajan column style.
  • Travertino: a sans workhorse family.
