Bruce Rotherham

Kiwi architect (1926-2004) who made a font called Wedge. This font wqas posthumously published by P22 in 2014. The story below is an edited version of the story of Wedge, as told by P22.

Noted New Zealand architect Bruce Rotherham was inspired by Herbert Bayer's universal alphabet created at the Bauhaus in 1927. While he admired Bayer's pure geometry, Rotherham felt it was virtually unreadable. The Bauhaus-inspired inclination for architectural publications to use sans serif faces provoked Rotherham to consider how a readable Roman book typeface might be approached using some of Bayer's same principles of simplification, but also retracing the evolution and use of the Roman form in an analytic manner.

Bruce Rotherham spent his formative years working at his father's commercial printing business and was tuned in to typography from an early age. The Wedge alphabet was started in 1947 when Rotherham was an architecture student at the University of Auckland. In 1958, after years of development and consultation with his father, who was a master printer, Rotherham approached Monotype to consider producing his typeface for commercial release. After some back and forth with Monotype advertising manager A.D.B. Jones and typographical advisor John Dreyfus, and despite trial proofs being made, the design was politely declined for being too much of a specialist face.

Rotherham continued to practice architecture in New Zealand and Great Britain for over thirty years. By chance, he heard the BBC radio show Science Now discussing the topic of computer typesetting. Not content to give up on Wedge, he contacted the item's producer, Adrian Pickering, at the University of Southampton School of Electronics and Computer Science. Pickering worked closely in collaboration with Rotherham in the production of the digital version of the face. The type was shown posthumously for Rotherham in the 2009 exhibit Printing Types: New Zealand Type Design since 1870, held at Objectspace, in Auckland. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Churchward Type
[Joseph Churchward]

Joseph Churchward (b. Apia, Samoa, 1933) grew up in Samoa, and moved to New Zealand, where he founded a design studio in Wellington. He lived in Hataitai. He died in 2013 [Obituary by Jack Yan].

His early type designs were released as photolettering through Berthold. In 2000, in partnership with Chank, his fonts are finally being converted to the standard electronic formats. In 1984, he won a Silver Prize at the Morisawa Awards competition. In 2009, he was made a life member of The New Zealand Designers Institute DINZ.

MyFonts writes: Churchward Type started in 1962 as Joseph Churchward's freelance lettering service. Within six months he had generated enough work to move from his job as Senior Artist into setting up Churchward International Typefaces, which became one of the largest typesetting companies in New Zealand. In 1969 Joseph was asked to submit alphabet designs to Berthold Fototypes and saw immediate success. He later went on to sign distribution agreements with D.Stempel AG, Dr Böger Photosatz GmbH/Linotype, Mecanorma-Polyvroom B.V and Zipatone. He self-published a handful of original fonts in 1978 becoming the first and only company in New Zealand to publish original photo-lettering. Churchward International Typefaces was forced to close in June 1988 but Churchward Type lives on with a fresh set of independent releases. David Buck has taken on the role of digitisation. Joseph continues to draw alphabets and now has a stockpile of over 300 unique alphabets to his name.

Catalog of Joseph Churchward's typefaces:

  • Chank sells ChurchwardHeading, ChurchwardSamoa, Churchward Maori, ChurchwardDesign5Line, ChurchwardBrush. See also Churchward Roundsquare (2002), which reminds me of Apostrophe's Toolego.
  • At Berthold, he published Churchward 69 (1969, a fat face), Blackbeauty (1972; this psychedelic type inspired Nick Curtis's 2009 font, Strollin NF), and Churchward 70 (1970, a Bauhaus-style sans family).
  • MyFonts sells Churchward Alien (2012), Churchward Maori (2004, frilly), Churchward Marianna (1969, an obese bubblegum typeface; Nick Curtis's Proud Mary NF (2010) is derived from it), Churchward Ta Tiki (2003), Churchward Asia (2003), Churchward Samoa (2003, 6-weight sans family), Churchward Maricia (a Western-style face), Churchward Brush (2006), Conserif CW (2006, BluHead Studio), Churchward Heading (2007), Churchward Supascript (2007), Design CW (2006, BluHead Studio), Freedom CW (2006, BluHead Studio), Ta Tiki CW (2006, BluHead Studio), Churchward Newstype (2008, 8 styles, BluHead Studio), Churchward Chinatype (2008, 5 styles of oriental simulation glyphs), Churchward Heading (2011), Churchward Brush (2009, BluHead Studio), and Churchward Design Lines (1970, a prismatic multiline face), Churchward Montezuma (2012, an Aztec-inspired design digitized by BluHeadStudio), Churchward Legible.

Jack Yan: Obituary of Joseph Churchward, 1932-2013
[Joseph Churchward]

Jack Yan laments the passing of one of New Zealnd's great type designers, Joseph Churchward: I started the day with the sad news that Joseph Churchward, QSM, has passed away. Joe was a great typeface designer, but, more importantly, a pioneer. He wasn't the first type designer in New Zealand, but he was certainly the most prolific, and, in the modern era, a trail-blazer. It's all the more impressive when you realize that Joe did his type design without the aid of computers---he remained sceptical of technology right to the end---using his hand, with pencil to create the outline, then inking them, and whiting out any areas where the ink had gone too far. He left the digitalization of his work to others, including the companies that sought out his designs, most notably Berthold of Germany, through which he had had numerous releases. Joe's work was marketable right to the end. New typefoundries approached Joe to license his designs, authors still sought him out to write books about him, and even Te Papa held an exhibition of his work a few years ago as it realized Wellington had a living legend right under our noses. Massey University inducted him into its Hall of Fame, although when he was honoured, he was already too ill to attend. My own contact with Joe didn't begin well. I had made the decision in the 1980s to go into typeface design professionally, and, of course, Churchward International Typefaces was the best known name. And it was right here in Wellington. Making my way up to Wang House on Willis Street, I was confronted with a notice: that the company had been wound up the week before. Later, I discovered that Joe had packed up for Samoa, where he was from. Joe was very proud of his forebears, and the English origin of his name---but he was equally proud of his Samoan and Chinese ancestry. Despite being born in Samoa, he embraced Wellington wholeheartedly, living in Kilbirnie in his youth---I seem to recall him telling me of a residence in Tacy Street---and hanging out with the Maori boys. He enrolled at what was then Wellington Technical College and some of his early hand-lettering work was created there. However, an incident there also meant that Joe could not get back into hand-lettering in his final years: a fight at the college saw a glass door smash on to his hand, a serious injury that had the principal order him to go to hospital, where surgery was performed. Joe was arguably the pioneer in typeface design in New Zealand as far as photo-lettering was concerned, and was, to my knowledge, the designer who had the greatest number of designs turned in to typefaces for phototypesetting. I still have, somewhere among my files, a photograph from the late 1960s taken at Churchward International Typefaces, which featured Mark Geard and Paul Clarke, two well respected names in the industry. But Joe's scepticism toward the computer age saw the company suffer, and I would not meet Joe till 2000 after he returned from Samoa. That first meeting was a lengthy one but, strangely, we never discussed our methods. We only discussed our finished designs, and Joe actually asked me to collaborate with him a few years later. Nothing came of that, as I was gearing up to do Lucire in print at that point, and it was an opportunity missed. My own interest in typeface design was probably less strong come the mid-2000s---Joe was easily the more passionate---but we stayed in touch, usually by telephone. On hearing of how ill he was, I visited him last year, and it was only then that we discovered that we actually adopted the same approach to design. The scale we drew at, the pencil-and-ink-and-whitening method---perhaps those were borne out of the limits we had. We had both started before desktop typeface design became the norm, and we both settled on the same method of drawing our creations. And we both did this in isolation, not knowing of peers---we just knew we had a love of drawing type forms by hand. Joe lamented that he could no longer draw because that College injury meant that he could not hold a pen properly. While in very good spirits, I could sense that Joe was pained by this. He had had a lifetime of creating, but now he was forced to sit back, watch a bit of telly, and reminisce. But the visit was a fantastic one, and the sparkle came back every now and then: Joe remained genuinely excited about type design, even to the last days. My colleague and I were gifted posters and business cards from the heyday of Churchward International Typefaces, items which we will cherish even more deeply knowing it was one of Joe's last gestures to his peers. I might go on about how I began designing type digitally, but that's not that pioneering. At least by then I had copies of U&lc and the knowledge of others who were designing type offshore. Joe began his career postwar, at a time when international communications were not as good and there was less inspiration around. Instead, he found that within himself, found the way forward himself, and just went for it. Joe was the embodiment of the Kiwi can-do attitude, and a focused Samoan work ethic. The typeface design industry is weaker today with this loss.

Retail

  • Feijoa (2007, a serif family for text, Village).
  • National (2007, a sans serif family, Village). This type family won an award at TDC2 2008. Duncan Forbes: National is slightly mannered, which becomes more apparent in the heavier weights yet it still remains simple, subtle and serious. [...] It has a human charm that gives such warmth and learned beauty to text.
  • FF Meta Serif (2007, Serif counterpart of FF Meta, with Erik Spiekermann and Christian Schwartz).
  • Galaxie Copernicus (2009) is a large x-height serif family done at Village in cooperation with Chester Jenkins. It was inspired (from very far) by Plantin's types.
  • Domaine Text and Display, in 48 styles (2013). Wedge serif on a didone skeleton.
  • Founders Grotesk (2010). Roughly based on Miller&Richard Grotesque (No. 4, No. 7, No. 3), from a 1912 Miller&Richard specimen book. The proportions are just right---I will place my bets on this one for several best of 2010 award lists. The Condensed and X-Condensed are from 2011, and Founders Grotesk Text was published in 2013. ">Founders Grotesk Mono followed in 2014.
  • Metric (2011). A sans family with hints of art deco in the heavier weights. It is paired with Calibre (2011). Sowersby writes: Metric&Calibre are a pair of typefaces that share a fundamental geometry yet differ in the finish of key letterforms. Metric is a geometric humanist, sired by West Berlin street signs. Calibre is a geometric neo-grotesque, inspired by the rationality of Aldo Novarese's seldom seen Recta. They were conceived as a pair but function independently of each other. In a clever twist, Metric offers vertical stroke endings and Calibre horizontal ones in a selected number of glyphs.
  • Tiempos Text and Tiempos Headline (2010). Named for Times New Roman, this type has influences from the egyptian Galaxie Copernicus, which is based on Plantin, as well as from Times New Roman.
  • FF Unit Slab (2007, with Erik Spiekermann and Christian Schwartz).
  • Newzald (2007), an economical text serif based on rough lettering found in New Zealand. Review of Newzald at Typographica.
Custom Unfinished
  • The blackletter pixel font Pixel Fraktur (2002).
  • The pixel script font Nobody came to class (2003).
  • Pixel uncial (2003).
  • Luca Titling (2003, an ancient roman titling typeface based on inscriptions from 1590).
  • Mono, Mono Pre (2003).
  • Kilbernie Sans (2003), Kilbirnie Serif (2004).
  • Klim Sans (2004).
  • A Slabb (2004, a slab serif), Slabb (nice slab version of Klim Sans).
  • Karv (2005, alternative for Trajan), Karv Sans.
  • National Condensed and National Compressed (2007).
  • Aperture (2007), a sans for small sizes.
  • Valencia (2007), a warm didone.
  • Salamanca (2005).
  • Sevilo (2005).
  • Zinc (2005).
  • Elegantia (2005, based on Polyphilus).
  • Karbon, Karbon Serif (2006: raves from the typophiles!). Karbon is an open, geometric sans serif with a contemporary spartan finish. It is an exploration of Paul Renner's reductionist Futura concept channelled through the proportions of Eric Gill's eponymous sans, with a slight nod towards Jan Tschichold's Uhertype sans-serif. Includes seven weights in roman and italic.

Mary Faber

Mary Faber (b. 1987) from Hamilton, New Zealand, writes about Mainline, a copperplate creation in 2011: Mainline's style was formed through an amalgamation of two historical typefaces titled Copperplate and Glyptic; research proved these the most popular metal display faces in New Zealand letterpress printing during the period of 1880 to 1900. Despite the lack of typeface designers in New Zealand in the late 1800s, this hybrid typeface design could be considered a national reflection of historic typefaces seen in New Zealand during that time. It should be noted that the selected parent typefaces were both Victorian typefaces by Hermann Ihlenburg.

She also created Marino (2011): Marino is a contemporary typeface design influenced by a period of New Zealand's typographic history. Its letterforms were created based on research into typeface trends within newspaper advertising from 1920 until 1940, reflecting the increasing popularity of geometric modernity, and the peak of typographic Art Deco in 1930. In particular, Marino is based on an ad for Mencken from ca. 1930.

In 2014, we rediscovered Ben Whitmore as The Briar. He published Coelacanth, a free typeface family inspired by Bruce Rogers' legendary Venetian typeface, Centaur, described by some as the most beautiful typeface ever designed. He writes: There are surprisingly few digital revivals of Centaur, and none that I know of providing the smaller optical sizes that were available in the original metal type. Centaur was tremendously versatile, as elegant and readable in the smallest caption text as it was at display sizes. He created the italics from scratch. Interestingly, Coelacanth has six weights from Thin to Heavy, and six optical styles, 4pt, 6pt, 8pt, 14pt, 24pt and 60pt.
