Alphabets by Chileans (or: ABC)

Foundry, est. 2015 by Miguel Hernandez and Tania Chacana.

Bio copied from Fust & Friends, a foundry set up in 2017 by Jan Middendorp in Berlin: Beatrice Naomi Davies grew up in Acquapendente, Central Italy, but as a young girl spent two years in New York and two years in Seoul, South Korea, where her grandmother lived. She attended IISAC art high school in Orvieto, Italy. In 2010 she attended the School of Visual Arts of New York, NY. She moved to Berlin in early 2012. [...] She combines her illustration work with animation, theatre, branding, logo design and hand-lettering. She became MyFonts' principal illustrator and portrayed dozens of type designers. Noticing her stylistic versatility, Fust & Friends invited her to contribute a set of dingbats and illustrations compatible with Minjoo Ham's Teddy script---which became the Teddings font.

Douglas Thomas

Douglas Thomas is a graphic designer, writer, and historian. He holds an MA in history from the University of Chicago and an MFA in graphic design from the Maryland Institute College of Art, where he also taught. He currently teaches at Brigham Young University. Author of Never Use Futura (2017). The blurb: It's everywhere, including the moon (on the commemorative plaque left by Apollo 11 astronauts), Nike sneakers, the artworks of Barbara Kruger, Ed Ruscha, and Jenny Holzer, 2001: A Space Odyssey credits, Domino's Pizza boxes, Absolut Vodka bottles, and Red Bull cans. Futura and its typographic offspring have been the face of presidential campaigns from Richard Nixon to Hillary Clinton. Indeed, Futura is one of the most used fonts in the world today---the typeface of modern design---more so even than Helvetica. This fascinating book explores the cultural history and uses of a face that's so common you might not notice, until you start looking, and then you can't escape it. Douglas Thomas traces Futura from its Bauhaus-inspired origin in Paul Renner's 1924 design, to its current role as the go-to choice for corporate work, logos, motion pictures, and advertisements.

Elizabeth Carey Smith

Lettering artist and graphic designer in Brooklyn, NY, who runs the design studio, The Letter Office, and teaches typography and design at City College. She specializes in text-heavy publications and information graphics. Her typefaces:

  • At Type@Cooper (2011-2012), she designed the crisp, elegant and feminine geometric sans typeface Brightcut.
  • In 2011, she created Howland New at Type@Cooper. This is a revival of a typeface from 1892 by John F. Cumming. Mac McGrew comments on Howland: Howland was introduced by Dickinson in 1892 as a "companion series to DeVinne." The same design was called DeVinne Condensed (No.3) by Keystone Type Foundry, but differs from the De Vinne Condensed issued by other sources. Howland Open followed in 1894; it was copied by Linotype as Condensed Outline and suggested through the 1940s as a display typeface for classified advertising pages which banned bold types. Compare DeVinne Condensed, MacFarland Condensed.
  • Various typefaces that are part of Elizabeth's Imaginary Alphabets: Marguerite (Victorian), Harlemite (vernacular).
  • Typefaces in the works (as of 2017): Jada (a great rounded sans), Avedon.

Most of us are based in Berlin, where we participate in type-related activities and work on publications, videos, events and fonts. The group is international: the first and second batches of typefaces have been, and are being, designed and produced by professionals from Germany, the Netherlands, South Korea, Italy, Denmark, Austria, Britain, and Brazil.

  • Presto (2017, by Andreas Seidel), a revival of a script by Helmut Matheis (1970).
  • Teddy (2017, by Minjoo Ham). A layerable typeface that started out as a digital version of Ernst Bentele's Freely Drawn Italic alphabet (1953). It comes with an interesting set called Teddy Catchwords.

San Francisco-based designer of the free variable font Barlow (2017). He writes: Barlow is a slightly rounded, low-contrast, grotesk type family designed by Jeremy Tribby.

The family includes 54 manually-hinted styles in three widths and nine weights, as well as obliques, suitable for large and small digital and print use. Customizable weights and widths are available via the included variable font (GX) file. Barlow is named after internet pioneer, EFF co-founder, songwriter, and activist John Perry Barlow, in tribute to his lasting impact on the information superhighway. The original motivation was to replace the DIN Engschrift font currently used by the Eletronic Frontier Foundation by an open source font that does not look too different.

Hannover, Germany-based designer of the custom typeface Malba Sans (2017) for Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA). He explains: Malba Sans is a corporate font of the museum, whose capital letters were drawn in-house (Aldus De Losa) and served the titling purposes. We were asked by the museum's graphic design team to analyse and update the capital letters, draw the lowercase letters, based upon the improved model and extend the character sets to cover more languages. The new version, named Malba Sans is characterised by a stronger vertical accent and more consistency due the reshape of all the letter forms. A new tighter spacing contributed to the better titling function. Malba Sans was fully kerned and is going to be implemented in the museum's upcoming identity in 2018. The font was exclusively drawn for the internal use and is not available for licensing. Behance link. [Google] [More]  ⦿
