Stuff is a variable subfamily that covers weight and optical size axes. Both typeface families are accompanied by an italic style and support Latin and Arabic scripts.

Darkmode refers to white type on black background. It is generally understood that for white type on dark printed matter should be bolder (than its black on white counterpart), while white text on a black screen should be thinner as the screen spews white in the reader's direction. Dalton Maag, in its presentation of its Darkmode typeface family writes: There are well-known optical and psychological effects in design which result in text presented white-on-black being perceived as larger and bolder than the same text presented black-on-white. This presents a challenge for consistent visual hierarchy on different backgrounds, especially when designing for emissive displays.

Dalton Maag's Darkmode (2020-2021) is an adaptation of an earlier font by them, Stroudley, which was created for physical signage and wayfinding: Our [Dalton Maag's] aim for Darkmode was to translate Stroudley's fundamental characteristics of accessibility, readability, and legibility to on-screen reading, digital navigation, and electronic signage. Darkmode's open counters, tall x-height, humanist proportions, and clear and distinguishable characters all contribute to a comfortable reading experience, even at low resolutions or small sizes. The Darkmode family consists of eight static weights, ranging from Thin to Black, plus a variable font (VF) file, with both weight and darkmode [on/off] axes.

Additional references include

  • A discussion of Darkmode by Nikolay Petroussenko, type designer at Fontfabric.
  • A discussion of white-on-black typography at Typedrawers (2021). Some typophiles find the darkmode issue overrated (including Jasper de Waard and Scott-Martin Kosofsky), while others point to tools that may be readily available to automatically embolden or lighten weights (such as the Offset Curve filter in Glyphs (for designers), and CSS code snippets (for users and web site designers)). Peter Constable observes however that the weight axis does not do the exact same thing as Dalton Maag's "Darkmode" axis: weight affects advance widths; "Darkmode" does not. "Darkmode" is like what is often referred to as "grade": small adjustments in stroke weights to compensate for medium or context conditions that affect apparent weight without affecting advance widths.

Mark Zhu

Mark Zhu is a remarkable type designer and photographer in Paris, France, who focuses on multi-script type design and calligraphy. Graduate of the MATD program at the University of Reading, class of 2020. His typefaces:

  • His graduation typeface at Reading was Suyab (2020), a multi-script typeface family intended for language-learning textbooks and other complex multi-script typesetting environments, covering four scripts of various writing directions: Latin, Arabic, Chinese, and Mongolian. Each script includes three styles for text (Text, Sans & Informal) each in three weights, and one display style in black. The name of the typeface comes from the ancient Silk Road city, Suyab, located in present-day Kyrgyzstan. The city had been an intersection of cultures and languages, ruled by many different civilisations at various points of history, including Sogdian (Iranian), Turkic, and Chinese. It is difficult to phathom that one person can design such a humongous typeface in just one year.
  • Vernicia (2019), developed during the TypeParis19 course. Vernicia is a serif typeface family exploring a natural fusion between Latin and Chinese calligraphy. The typeface is intended for literature and books, especially those translated from the Chinese language.
  • Prosodia. Prosodia is a partial-revival typeface intended for setting classical Chinese poetry and related content, supporting Chinese and basic Latin. The design of the Chinese characters draws inspiration from an 18th-century block-printed book, Imperial Collection of Tunes, which is a compilation of metrical patterns used to guide the writing of classical ci poetry. The design extracts key features from the type in this book and mix them with modern standard Songti character structures that are more friendly to the present-day readers.
  • Cliff. An inscriptional typeface inspired by the Chinese Wei regular script calligraphy from around 5th century CE, especially the Northern Wei Empire. The script is characterized by robust form, heavy weight, rather wide proportions, and sharp corners and points. Most existing examples of this script are inscriptions on stelae, tombstones, statues, and cliffs. The Latin companion is reimagined to be written with a Chinese pointed brush.

Nina Faulhaber

Winner of the Gerard Unger Scholarship 2021 (an award annually bestowed by Type Together) for her typeface Aeroplan (renamed from Flieger), which was developed while Nina was studying towards a BA in Communication Design at Augsburg University of Applied Science (Germany) under the supervision of Maurice Göldner. Aeroplan is a revival of a serif typeface found in a book about aircraft engines published by Waldheim-Eberle A.G. Wien-Leipzig in 1916. While in the original printed book the typeface was slightly irregular and populated with unusual details, Nina's digital version is an open interpretation rather than a copy. The letterforms are based on the original, but they feature a contemporary digital sharpness and more regularity in the forms and contrasts. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Sandro Fetter

Sandro Roberto Fetter (Porto Alegre, Brazil) has a PhD from the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil, class of 2019. His 553-page thesis, entitled Letra Escolar Brasileira: design de uma família tipogáfica para o ensino da escrita manual, is perhaps the most extensive scholarly work on school fonts ever written. At that same university, he teaches typography, type design and digital interface design. He also earned a Masters in graphic design from Escola Superior de Desenho Industrial (ESDI/UERJ, 2011).

In 2019, as part of his doctoral thesis in the Graduate Program in Design of the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, and supervised by Airton Cattani and Edna Cunha Lima, he designed Letra Brasileira, a script typeface to support handwriting lessons based on three main guidelines: simplicity, accessibility, and tradition. It includes a cursive, a simple style, a contemporary style, as well as the traditional Brazilian continuous cursive model. [Google] [More]  ⦿
