Chek Lap sans was developed at the School of Design of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Angel wrote: Chek Lap Sans is a Traditional Chinese typeface designed specifically for signage of the Hong Kong International Airport in Chek Lap Kok, aiming for both functionality and personality. The typeface is designed with considerations of legibility under negative polarity display, to suit the need of the current blue light-box signs with white text. It has generous negative spaces within character, optical adjustments to compensate the glowing effect, and subtle features that contribute to its visual identity. It also includes relevant icons with references to the local context. Several design decisions were informed by the findings from user tests.

During his studies at Brown University (Providence, RI) and at Type West, Calder Hansen designed the experimental display typeface Rinca (2019).

Rinca is an exploration of what happens when the contrast axis is curved rather than straight. It is based on the shapes created by a broad-nib pen that changes angle as it draws based on its position relative to the arc of the axis. This creates a texture that is strange but self-consistent.

TT Interfaces

A major project by the TypeType team in Saint Petersburg, Russia, meant to provide a sans typeface family that can be broadly used in modern media. There are four monospaced styles, and 20 other styles, with the goal of providing competition, in their own words, to Arial, Roboto, and San Francisco Text. While this bar is quite low, the Type Type team of nine members, listed below, did an extraordinary technical job in terms of hinting and opentype features. The initial brief:

It should have the best proportions in the category, as well as a wide palette of styles, characters and OpenType features. The typeface should fit well in the layout when replacing the old interface font with our new typeface. [...] For programmers, we decided to make a monospaced version of the typeface with four styles. This typeface should become a universal and convenient tool for designers who actively use interface fonts in their projects. [...] The typeface should be beautiful, elegant and at the same time invisible and neutral. From the technical point of view, this typeface should be perfect, have the most modern hinting, as well as a variable version for those who are well versed in the subject.

The team members:

  • Ivan Gladkikh (head of the project).
  • Irina Tatarskaya (manager).
  • Pavel Emelyanov (art director, author of the study and the basic font).
  • Marina Khodak (senior font designer, technical project manager).
  • Ksenia Karataeva (font designer, author of the monospace subfamily and the icon research).
  • Nadezhda Polomoshnova (font designer, author of the icons).
  • Victor Rubenko (technical engineer, programmer, hinting specialist).
  • Nadyr Rakhimov (font designer, technical engineer).
  • Yuri Nakonechny (technical engineer, debugger).
