Ariel Barton

Author of various TeX / metafnt / TeX font packages. These include knitting: a package written to make it possible to write cable and lace charts for knitting patterns using plain TeX or LaTeX. It provides type 1 and metafont fonts of appropriate symbols and macros for their use. The font family KnittingSymbols (2010) contains ten fonts by Ariel Barton.

In 2013, he published sansmathfonts, motivated by Ariel as follows: The Computer Modern font family has a sans serif typeface. However, compared to the serif typeface, it is incomplete: there are no sans serif small caps or math fonts. Furthermore, the bold slanted font is not available as an outline font. This leads to highly unsatisfactory typography of documents that use sans serif for the body text. The sansmathfonts package provides these \missing" fonts. Most of the usefulness of the package is in the fonts; sansmathfonts.sty is a small package providing LATEX support. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Christian Widlic

Christian Widlic (Brighton, UK) created a knitting typeface called Askeladden (2011).

The typeface is called Askeladden and comes with six different fonts. Askeladden is the main character in many Norwegian folktales. In some ways, he represents the small man who succeeds where all others fail. He always wins in the end, often winning the princess and half the kingdom. Academic project 2011.
