1001freefonts
[Jason Nolan]

Good-sized archive by Jason Nolan. Lots of bells and whistles. It gets hairy when he asks 10USD for a 2000-font download, and 20 USD for a 10,000-font download, charging for freeware and shareware fonts made by others. He writes in 2011: 1001 Free Fonts first opened its doors in December 1998 and has since grown to become the most popular free fonts archive online. We receive more than 50,000 visitors daily and have received 150,000,000 visitors since 1998. Over 3,000,000,000 free fonts have been downloaded since 1998.

Alejandro Paul

Designer who lives in Buenos Aires and who teaches graphic design and typography at the Universidad de Buenos Aires. He has worked as an art director in prestigious Argentina-based studios, handling high-profile corporate brands such as Arcor, Marta Harff, Morph, SC Johnson, Danone, and Movicom. He runs Estudio Paul. Professor at Facultad de Arquitectura, Universidad de Buenos Aires. Co-creator, with Apostrophe at Apostrophic Laboratory, of Usenet (2000), FontCop I through IV (2000) and the pixel font family Cayetano. Published the dot matrix font Stardust wth T-26 in 2000. Designed the gorgeous font Elektora in 2000. He developed with Michael Lynch a 17-font Tennis set of grid-based pixel fonts. At Typeworx, he published Reflex (2002), a commercial 6-style unicase font family. Another web site by Alejandro. Cofounder of DAS, a design studio in Buenos Aires.

Cofounder of Sudtipos (2003), where he does custom work and creates new typefaces.

His work there includes Tierra (a titling face), Latinaires (originally called Latina Sans), Reflex, Downtempo (2003), Stardust and Mosaico (1999, pixel face).

Still at Sudtipos, he digitized the beautiful handwriting/calligraphic faces by Angel Koziupa called Alma (2005), Murga, Habano and Tiza, which together with his script face Argenta (2004), Oxida (2005), the medieval script face Mama Script (2004, designed with Alfredo Graziani), Divina (2004, with Alfredo Graziani), and the sans family Kautiva (2004) can be bought via Umbrella Type at Veer.

For children's orthography, he developed Estrada Hand, on commission for Editorial Estrada. He was working on the serif family Libertina (2004).

Herencia (2004, a handwriting face done with Diego Giaccone), Grover (2004, slab serif), Milk Script (2004, with Alfredo Graziani), Mama Script (2004, with Alfredo Graziani), Politica (2004, a techno face with a very thin Thin weight) are at Sudtipos.

The Bluemlein Scripts (2004-2005, Umbrella and Veer) are based on the calligraphic renderings of Charles Bluemlein, shown in a 1943 ink catalog: Miss Le Gatees, Mr Rafkin, Mr Keningbeck, Mr Lackboughs, Lady Dawn, Mrs Von Eckley, Mr Sheppards, Mr Dafoe, Mr Canfields, Mr Stalwart, Mr Sandsfort, Mr Leopolde, Mr DeHaviland, Mr Blaketon, Miss Stanfort, Miss Packgope, Miss Fajardose, Mrs Saint-Delafield, Mrs Blackfort, Mr Sopkin, Mr Sheffield, Miss Lankfort, Herr Von Muellerhoff, Dr Sugiyama, Dr Carbfred. (Note: Soft Horizon's Lainie Day (1993) is an earlier free font in the style of Lady Dawn and Mr Lackboughs). In 2011, that series was made available at Google Web Fonts.

Sudestada (2005, Sudtipos) is a handwriting script developed with Diego Giaccone. Cuisine (2005, Umbrella Type) is an informal bold script. Mousse Script (2005, Sudtipos) is based on Glenmoy, a 1932 Stephenson Blake typeface. Suave Script (2005) is a 4am jazz bar script. Ministry (2005) is related in style but less funky, Chocolate (2005) is for sales ads, and Cenizas (2005, with Angel Koziupa) is straight from an old manuscript.

Whomp (2006, Umbrella) was based on a partial sign-painting font by Alf Becker (1930s), and so was Buffet Script (2006, Sudtipos). Affair (2006, Umbrella) is swashy and calligraphic, while Candy Script (2007) and its italic version Sugar Pie (2011) are based on Argentina's market lettering. Galgo Script (2007) is a brush calligraphic font based on a design of Angel Koziupa.

Burgues Script (2007) is an ornate calligraphic script based on the lettering of calligraphy teacher Louis Madarasz (1859-1910) (PDF; award at TDC2 2008). Burgues Script, Adios Script (2008: it won an award at TDC2 2009), Feel Script and Sugar Pie all won awards at Tipos Latinos 2008.

Sinfonieta (2006) and Buffet Script are fifties style connected scripts. Feel Script (2007) is based on lettering that calligrapher and logo designer Rand Holub created in 1950 and that was subsequently captured in Intertype's face Monterey (1958). Some letterforms were redrawn from vintage American magazine ads (some by Holub himself), Cuisine (2008, food advertising script), Pronto (2008, comic book style, by Alejandro Paul and Angel Koziupa), Grover (2004, rounded sans family), Grover Slab (2004). Burgues Script, Adios Script, Feel Script and Sugar Pie all won awards at Tipos Latinos 2008. Calgary Script (2008, Umbrella) is a pure signpainting job.

Accolades from all typophiles for his calligraphic wunderkind, Compendium (2008, see also the slide show).

The 2009 haul: Sugar Pie (signage font), Bravissima Script, Theorem (upright semi-script).

Speaker at ATypI 2009 in Mexico City.

The year 2010 starts off with a bang, five awards at Tipos Latinos 2010: a grand prize for Brownstone Sans, and four standard awards, for Semilla, Kewl Script (for food packaging and store windows), Calgary Script, and for Business Penmanship.

Typefaces from 2010 include the baseball lettering face Fan Script and the tattoo script face Piel Script (piel=skin), which was influenced by Burgues Script and more remotely by showcard lettering by B. Boley (1930s, Sign of the Times Magazine). Piel Script won an award at Tipos Latinos 2012.

In 2011, he and Koziupa made the fat signage face Aventura and Viento (a grunge version of their earlier 2004 face, Brisa).

He added one retro connected signage font to the Filmotype collection in 2012, called Filmotype Kitten (original from 1955). Filmotype Zephyr (2012) is an italic roman formal script. Filmotype Yukon (2012) is inspired by the classic Palmer style of penmanship.

Storefront (2012) is a swashy signage face based on an incompletete alphabet by Alf Becker.

His signage script typeface Hipster Script won an award in the TDC 2012 competition and at Tipos Latinos 2012.

Typefaces from 2013: Rolling Pen (a connected script that recalls the business penmanship genre), Bellissima Script (based on a copperplate calligraphic alphabet from Bellezas de la Caligrafía by Ramón Stirling, 1844).

In 2014, he helped Panco Sassano, a lettering artist and illustrator from Mar del Plata, who designed the wide connected semi-calligraphic handwriting typeface Horizontes Script. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Alice Savoie, Frenchtype
[Alice Savoie]

Graduate student (b. 1984) from Estienne in 2006 and the University of Reading in 2007. In 2012, she was a Ph.D. student at the University of Reading. Thesis topic: International cross-currents in typeface design: France, Britain, and the US in the phototypesetting era, 1949-1975.

Pic by Ralph Herrmann. Her typeface Capucine Greek has been awarded as the best text typeface of the Greek alphabet exhibition, taking place during the 3rd international conference on typography and visual communication in Thessaloniki, Greece, 2007. Capucine is a very informal, almost hand-printed family covering both Latin and Greek in many styles. She also made the constructivist face Pozor (2005) and the connected handwriting face Jeanine, done in 2006 at the École Estienne in Paris, where she studied from 2004 until 2006. She worked for a short time as a graphic designer in London before joining Monotype Imaging in 2008 as a full-time type designer.

In 2009, she codesigned Ysobel (Monotype; winner of an award at TDC2 2010) with type designers Robin Nicholas, head of type design at Monotype, and Delve Withrington. The sales pitch: According to Nicholas, the idea for the Ysobel faces started when he was asked to create a custom, updated version of the classic Century Schoolbook typeface, which was designed to be an extremely readable typeface - one that made its appearance in school textbooks beginning in the early 1900s.

In 2010, finally, she published Capucine at Process Type Foundry (Grand Valley, MN), where she currently is part of Eric Olson's team.

Brill (2012), codesigned with John Hudson for Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, The Netherlands, won an award at TDC 2013.

We wanted comprehensible, distinctive letterforms, that can help everybody on the way from Babylon to Zion. The project was used in Kharkiv promotion at homeland and abroad, but was rejected by the new government. As a corporate typeface it was used for a few cultural projects. Now it is equipped with Slavic Cyrillic and Monotonic Greek.

Andy Crewdson

Graduate from the University of California at Berkeley. Andy Crewdson ran the very interesting and entertaining "Lines And Splines" pages until May 12, 2002. He digitized Monica Lewinsky's handwriting (from notes she wrote for Bill Clinton---Stephen Coles later made the Mac version of Monica). On August 1, 2002, he resurfaced with New Series (dead link), in the tradition of Lines and Splines. But this too ended a short time later. There is a lot of speculation and commentary on the web regarding Crewdson's site and its disappearance---read, e.g., Joe Clark's blog. Andy is responsible for the roman transitional family Aitken commissioned in 2002 for Arion Press. Arion Press writes: Hoyem has taken advantage of twenty-first century technologies in order to revive what is believed to be the first type family cut and cast in America. In 1796 two Scotsmen named Binney and Ronaldson started a type foundry in Philadelphia, the first in the country to endure. By 1800 they had produced a remarkably beautiful and utilitarian type, identified simply as Roman No. 1. It is a Transitional face, between Old Style (as in Caslon) and Modern (as in Bodoni). The type was used by Jane Aitken, daughter of Robert Aitken, the famous printer of the American Revolution, and an accomplished printer herself, for the printing of the first American translation of the Bible, by Charles Thomson, in 1808. It was reintroduced by American Type Founders Company in 1892 under the name Oxford and was used by a succession of fine printers, such as Daniel Berkeley Updike, Bruce Rogers, and the Grabhorn Press. Arion Press has 1,200 pounds of the original type that once belonged to the Grabhorn Press. Oxford was cast for hand composition only and was not adapted for Linotype or Monotype composition. The matrices are now in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution and unavailable for further casting. In 2002, Hoyem worked with type designer Linnea Lundquist, assisted by Andrew Crewdson, to create a digital version of this historic face, which he renamed Aitken. The Memoirs of Benjamin Franklin is its first use for book printing. The Aitken design has been optimized for letterpress printing, allowing for the spread of ink biting into paper just like with the original metal type design cut by Binney&Ronaldson. For this book, the type has been printed from photopolymer plates. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Alonso Flair with its flared pants (2008) and Squat (2011, a stunted black wood style face) were started by Alonso, but finished after his death by John Bomparte, who wrote this obituary: Throughout his career at the legendary Photo-Lettering, Inc. (one that spanned four decades), Bob created original typefaces and tailored type by modifying, revising and filling out families, fashioning pieces of type for hand-lettered jobs, as well as being involved with the updating of a number of well-known logotypes. Bob was blessed with natural teaching abilities; and those in social and professional circles who had the good fortune to know him considered him not just a type designer but a mentor and a friend. As one such person close to him put it, he was a "graphic technician... back when computers were not even in site for graphic arts, he would take on any intricate&complex graphic project that others would shy away from and come up with a solution that achieved a masterpiece. I'll always remember someone saying 'this can't be done' and Bob saying let me see it and a short time later, there it was --done&perfect. I would like to think that attitude rubbed off on me. Along with this gift for teaching and explaining the complex, Bob exhibited a level of professionalism that was unsurpassed. A number of years ago when the need came to make the transition from the traditional to digital way of creating fonts, he rose to the challenge admirably. Towards the last few years of Photo-Lettering, Bob played a vital role in the conversion to digital, of many of the typefaces within the collection, notably those fonts that carry the prefix PL. More recently, Bob Alonso released several fonts through ITC, Adobe and his independent foundry, BA Graphics. Bob was on the cutting edge of his best work, and in the circumstance of his untimely passing, left a measure of unfinished designs. However, the spirit of his typographic talents and his fine sense of humor lives on through the many much-loved, and popular fonts he has left us: fonts such as Cookie Dough, Equate, Elephant Bells and Pink Mouse, to name a few.

Danielle BF (2010) is hand-printed, based on the hand of Danielle Paradis. Factor BF (2010) is an electronic / futuristic / techno face. FingerSpeller BF (1994) is an American sign language typeface. Retroscript BF (2010) and Capistrano BF (2010) are beautiful connected scripts.

Organiser of the international calligraphy award Belle Lettere (1997). The resulting publication Belle Lettere won the Fedrigoni Prize for graphic excellence. At ATypI in Rome in 2002, he spoke about two fonts he created: The font Ritratti (1999) was extracted from an Aldina edition and traces the cursive writings drawn and inscribed by Griffo at Venice, so as to imitate the original handwritten text. The font was created for Carlo Mazzacurati and Marco Paolini's three films about the most important modern-day Venetian writers, Mario Rigoni Stern, Andrea Zanzotto, and Luigi Meneghello. The font AnnoMille was used in another Mazzacurati film, La lingua del Santo, and graphically reinterprets the light-hearted and fluid feel of medieval capital letters. These two fonts highlight the roughness and imprecision typical of ancient print and the heterogeneous nature of letters written loosely by hand. Home page. Biography. Logo. Pic. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Carolyn Porter

At P22, Carolyn Porter published P22 Marcel Script in 2014. This stylish fountain pen script comes with a story: The font Marcel is named in honor of Marcel Heuzé, a Frenchman who was conscripted into labor during World War II. During the months Marcel was in Germany, he wrote letters to his beloved wife and daughters back home in rural France. Marcel's letters contain rare first-person testimony of day-to-day survival within a labor camp, along with the most beautiful expressions of love imaginable. The letters---stained and scarred with censor marks---were the original source documents used by designer Carolyn Porter to create a script font that retains the expressive character of Marcel Heuzé's original handwriting. The letters were found in an antique shop in Stillwater, Minnesota, and the 1300-glyph font was developed from 2011 until 2014. It comes with a set of filets and calligraphic ornaments, P22 Marcel Ornaments, and a set of capitals, P22 Marcel Caps. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Charles Percival Bluemlein

Charles Percival (or just Percy) Bluemlein (b. 1891) served in the 346th Infantry in World War I. In 1920, he married Mildred Vanderbilt and settled in Brooklyn, NY. He died in 1944 and is buried in the Long Island National Cemetery in Farmingdale, NY. Famous for his scripts and penmanship, his best known book is Script and Manuscript Lettering (1947, Higgins Ink Co, Brooklyn). Earlier editions are from 1943 and 1944 and have Bertram Cholet and Dorothy Sara (1943 edition only) as co-authors.

Modern revivals of his scripts include

  • KolinskySable SG (Jim Spiece, 2004), based on a 1944 brush design called Mr. Ronald G. Sheppards.
  • Bender Script (2008) by Alison Argento. She writes: Would you hire one of the top hand lettering artists that worked for companies like Max Factor for your designs? Of course you would! Chas Bluemlien passed away many years back, and you couldn't have afforded his services anyway, but his lettering prowess which graced many advertisements, primarily cosmetic ads, has been pulled together from numerous samples to make this font.
  • Alejandro Paul's Bluemlein Scripts (2004-2005, Umbrella and Veer) are based on Bluemlein's alphabets from the book cited above: Miss Le Gatees, Mr Rafkin, Mr Keningbeck, Mr Lackboughs, Lady Dawn, Mrs Von Eckley, Mr Sheppards, Mr Dafoe, Mr Canfields, Mr Stalwart, Mr Sandsfort, Mr Leopolde, Mr DeHaviland, Mr Blaketon, Miss Stanfort, Miss Packgope, Miss Fajardose, Mrs Saint-Delafield, Mrs Blackfort, Mr Sopkin, Mr Sheffield, Miss Lankfort, Herr Von Muellerhoff, Dr Sugiyama, Dr Carbfred. In 2011, that series was made available at Google Web Fonts. Al;ejandro writes: From the early 1930s through World War II, there were about 200 professional hand letterers working in New York City alone. This occupation saw its demise with the advent of photo lettering, and after digital typography, became virtually extinct.
  • Soft Horizon's Lainie Day (1993) is an earlier free font in the style of Paul's Lady Dawn and Mr Lackboughs.
  • In 2012, Intellecta Design got into the act and promised to digitize the entire series under the name Bluelmin instead of Bluemlein. They created Bluelmin Kisaburo, Bluelmin Ralph (2012), Bluelmin Ronald (2012), Bluelmin Sandsfort (2012) and Bluelmin Benedict (2012).

Codesign (or: Aviation Partners, or AVP)
[Nicholas Garner]

Nicholas Garner (b. 1949, Windsor) runs Codesign (or: Aviation Partners), a small London-based design firm which has created these commercial type families:

  • Cerafino (2005): informal sans.
  • Delamere (2005): more classical sans.
  • Kensington (2005): titling sans related to Gill Sans.
  • Maisee (2005): an open, wide, generous and broadly smiling sans family.
  • Tenison (2005): connected formal script.
  • Fiendstar (2006, 16 styles; +Cameo (white on black), +Shaded) (after Gill Sans Schoolbook).
  • Rosie (2010): a connected cosy script, in the Mistral style.
  • Norwich (2006): a grungy version of Tenison. Outrage (2006) is more grunge.
  • Cashback (2006).
  • Crystal (2006): a slab serif family.
  • Autobahn (2011) is a monoline elliptical sans family. Garner writes: Autobahn is a robust masculine sans of near monoline thickness and angular characteristics. Autocode (2011) is a monoline monospaced (for programs) elliptical sans based on Autobahn.
  • LaCarte (2007): inspired by a series of handwritten menus produced in 1980. Further extended to La Carte Pen in 2010.
  • Midas (2007).
  • Sky Sans (including hairline weights) (2007).
  • Lamoreli (2007).
  • Backstage (2007). A stencil face.
  • Amy (2010). Nicely hand-printed.
  • Atria (2010) An ink-trapped sans-serif.
  • Blocksta (2010). A rounded fat sans.
  • The elegant script face Jacqueline (2010).
  • New Fiendstar (2010).
  • Omniscript (2010).
  • Cambridge (2010). An elegant sans family with a misbehaving lower case q. Accompanied by a Cambridge Round family. It is designed as a schoolbook font, and is useful for dyslexics, since there are no ambiguities between letterforms.
  • Central (2011). A rounded geometric sans family. Followed in 2012 by Central Inline.
  • Combi (2011). This is a wonderful effort, as described by Garner himself: The Combi collection includes Sans, Sans Oblique, a true Italic, Serif, Serif Oblique and a set of Openface capitals. Combi fonts have 5 compatible weights and metrics allowing them to be used in free combination. Inspiration came from Jan Van Krimpen's Romulus (Enschedé, 1931). In addition to the Roman style, Van Krimpen created a set of open capitals, a simple oblique variant and subsequently, an attractive calligraphic italic, Cancelleresca Bastarda. In addition to Van Krimpen's idea, Combi has been influenced by features from many faces including Bembo, Melior and Optima. The object was to create a versatile family of body text and titling faces for use in books, magazines and on the web.

    Polaris (2012) is a rounded sans family that reads well in print and on screens.

    Mensa (2012) is a 36-weight large x-height sans body family.

  • Beaulieu (2012).
  • Clocktime (2012). A dingbat font with clocks.
  • Chokey Pro (2012). A tall connected script face.
  • Alleyn (2013), a soft geometric sans family.
  • Corsica (2013). Corsica is an all-purpose geometric sans-serif typeface of visually uniform stroke thickness. The family contains six weights, two widths and three lowercase size options, together with an italic variant for each.
  • Intrinseca (2014). An incised sans with some contrast and flaring, but still quite readable thanks to a good x-height.
  • Browser Serif and Browser Sans (2014). These families were designed for use on screen.

    Arethusa (2014) and Arethusa Pro (2014) are 12-style transitional typeface families.

Context-sensitive handwriting

Fungus is a font family consisting of about 15 fonts with over 1600 glyphs representing single characters, pairs, triples, end-characters, end-pairs, end-triples, start-characters, start-pairs and start-triples. Words are broken up into collections of glyphs, and optimization of the break-up is done by a mechanism of rewards and penalties. Glyphs are strip-kerned on the fly and put together. The sample shows the constituent glyphs in various shades. The software was developed by Luc Devroye and Mike McDougall. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini

Born in Firenze in 1969. Cofounder with Francesco Canovaro and Debora Manetti of the Italian design firm in Firenze called Studio Kmzero. He codesigned some typefaces there such as Arsenale White (2009). Targa Monospace (2002) is a sans inspired by Italian vehicle registration plates. It has an handmade version (Targa Hand) that can be used for comic book lettering.

The handwriting of Lord Byron led Pancini to develop the brush script typeface Byron (2013, Zetafonts).

MyFonts credits him with the rounded avant garde sans family Antipasto (2007), but elswhere we read that this typeface is made by Matteo di Iorio, so there is some confusion.

In 2014, Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini and Francesco Canovaro codesigned Amazing Grotesk (+Ultra). He also designed the calm bold geometric rounded sans typeface Cocogoose (2014) and the stylish deco font Offensive Behaviour.

British font service company located in London. They have barcodes, a handwriting and signature font service, and sell all famous font families. As an example, from 1992 until 1994, they made Garamond-No-100-Bold, Garamond-No-100-Italic, Garamond-No-100, Garamond-No-49-Bold-Italic, Garamond-No-49-Bold, Garamond-No-49-Italic, Garamond-No-49. One source claims that this Garamond family was made by Compugraphic and that Datascan merely changed the name in the font information field. Maybe that is the way its collection grew so mysteriously and quickly to thousands of fonts. And here is the beauty: each font is priced at 320 US dollars for a single user. There are 30,000 fonts listed. Their collection, on paper, can be had for 9.6 million US dollars. For five users, cost doubles. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Delve Fonts (was: Delve Media Arts)
[Delve Withrington]

Delve Withrington (Alameda, CA; b. 1970, Asheville, NC) studied at Savannah College of Art and Design, designed signage, print projects and web pages in addition to designing custom typefaces, worked for Fontshop, and in 2004, joined the type team at Agfa Monotype, which morphed into Monotype Imaging, Redwood City, CA. From Asheville, NC, he moved around and ended up in San Francisco. In 1996, he founded Delve Fonts in Berkeley, CA (in fact, Delve Media Arts, and later renamed Delve Fonts). He has collected a virtually complete list of books on typography. Author index. New books. One of the first places to consult, in my view. New type books. MyFonts link. Designer of these typefaces:

  • Blasphemy Initials: a free (and also commercial...) spooky font.
  • Blot Test (1999): a dingbat font inspired by the work of noted German psychologist Hermann Rorschach [1885-1922].
  • Cody (1999): an informal comic book face.
  • Continuo (1996): an all caps bilined outline face.
  • Cortina (2011). A futuristic family by Joachim Müller-Lancé.
  • Delve Hand (1996-2003).
  • Eucalyptus Regular.
  • Eulipia (1997-2003): organic.
  • Helfa (2011). Delve writes: Readability is baked in with a generous x-height, fine proportions that have a medium height to width ratio, and reasonable contrast in stroke weight variation.
  • Oktal Mono (2012, a rounded octagonal modular typeface by Joachim Müller-Lancé and Erik Adigard of MAD studio in Sausalito).
  • Peso (1999): an octagonal family inspired by a parking sign discovered in Guanajuato, Mexico.
  • Quara (2009): a techno sans.
  • Tilden Sans (2004-2009): low contrast, large x-height.
  • Uppercut Angle (2011). A signage face by Joachim Müller-Lancé. It was originally developed for the Krav Maga training center of San Francisco.
  • Ysobel (2009; winner of an award at TDC2 2010). Delve codesigned the newspaper type family Ysobel (Monotype) with type designers Robin Nicholas, head of type design at Monotype, and Alice Savoie (Frenchtype, Monotype). The sales pitch: According to Nicholas, the idea for the Ysobel faces started when he was asked to create a custom, updated version of the classic Century Schoolbook typeface, which was designed to be an extremely readable typeface - one that made its appearance in school textbooks beginning in the early 1900s. See also Ysobel eText Pro (2013).
His Art work often involves type. Bitstream's Type Odyssey 2 (2002) has Continuo, Blot Test, Peso, Peso Negative. In 2009, Steven Skaggs designed Rieven Uncial and Rieven Italic at Delve Fonts. Pic. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿
