International Standards Organisation

Swiss organization which in the type world is best known for its simple monoline rounded typeface Isonorm proposed in 1980. The font is appropriate for drafting and architectural purposes, as well as for technical charts and graphics. This typeface was digitally implemented by many, including:

  • Isonorm D by URW.
  • Isonorm by Linotype.
  • Isonorm MN by Mecanorma.
  • Isonorm EF (Elsner & Flake).
  • Isonorm SB (2004, by Scangraphic).
  • FF Isonorm by Robert Kirchner (1992-1993). In four weights and with a monospaced option.
  • Isotope (2012) by Fabio Duarte Martins (Scannerlicker). This is the largest collection. While all others have one or at most two weights, Scannerlicker offers 18 weights.
  • Iso Metrix NF (2012) by Nick Curtis.
  • Instant Schrift (2000) by Edgar Walthert. This is a redesign of Isonorm 3098 matching the radical restrictions of the Instant design-manual.
  • Isonorm by Infinitype.
  • PF Isotext Pro (2005, Panos Vassiliou, Parachute). A Latin / Greek family based on Isonorm.
