Algol Revived
[Michael Sharpe]

AlgolRevived is a free revival in 2017 by Michael Sharpe of the (photo)font Algol by Adrian Frutiger whose sole use was for printing ALGOL code in a manual: It is not meant to be a general purpose text font---the spacing is not optimized for that, being designed instead for printing computer code, where each letter should be distinct and text ligatures are banished. It seems to work well with the listings package, designed for exactly that purpose. Unusually for such a font, it is not monospaced, though perhaps this is no longer the issue it was in the days of FORTRAN. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Designer of the multistyle free monospaced octagonal and pixel font family Bedstead (2017), covering, Latin , Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew, mathematics, and a slew of other things.

The SAA5050 is familiar to those of a certain age as the chip that produced the MODE 7 display on the BBC Microcomputer. It generates characters from a 5x9 pixel matrix, smoothing diagonal lines to produce an interlaced 10x18 matrix for each character. Bedstead extends that algorithm to continuity, converting a 5x9 pixel grid into an outline with smooth diagonals. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Calibri, politics and scandals

Microsoft's Calibri, wich was designed by Lucas DeGroot in 2007, was involved in some political intrigue in 2017.

Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was linked to the 2016 Panama Papers, an archive of 11.5 million documents from the Panama law firm Mossack Fonseca which revealed that some of Sharif's children were listed as beneficiaries for previously undisclosed offshore companies with real estate holdings in London. Sharif was accused of tax sheltering, money laundering, and acquiring such wealth through unethical means, given his political position. In an effort to clear her family name, Sharif's daughter, Mariam Safdar, released documents that claimed she was not a beneficiary of these companies, but merely a trustee. But forensic handwriting and document expert Robert W. Radley pointed out that Safder's documents were dated to 2006, while the Calibri font that was used was only released in 2007. The Panamagate Joint Investigation Team (JIT) has since accused Safdar of presenting fake documents. BBC calls the affair Fontgate.

In a parallel development, R. Eric Thomas noted that Donald Trump Jr.'s emails are set in Calibri as well and writes: Honestly, I just hate Calibri. I'm a serif queen, what can I say? Letters should have hats and shoes and I won't apologize for my opinions. Make Fonts great again. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Jacob Thomas

Designer who took the TDi program at the University of Reading, UK, in 2016. In 2016, he created Qayyum and explains: Various challenges have prevented the emergence of quality calligraphic Bengali typefaces, in particular the curved matras (top line). In honor of the one-year death anniversary of Bengali painter Qayyum Choudhury, I have developed a typeface inspired by his unique handwriting which pioneers Bengali typeface design in a number of areas. Having grown up in Bangladesh fluently speaking Bengali, I have for years documented calligraphy examples around me. Instead of simply following the Western trajectory of typeface design like many have done with Bengali, I wanted to allow the fluidity and character of Bengali hand lettering to come through, which is now made possible with opentype contextual substitution syntax. This involved creating positional alternates, ligatures and swash alternates. However the key challenge was to preserve the natural curvature of the matra line without creating an impossible number of glyphs & substitutions; this was solved by creating 6-8 categories of glyph kernings and then separating out the letters from the matras. This unique method is the first successful attempt I know of in preserving matra curvature in any Indic script. [Google] [More]  ⦿

I took inspiration from Source Sans Pro and you'll probably see the similarities (letter forms and e.g. the thin-black master approach). Cantarell is a bit wider, though.
