Applied Design Works

Applied Design Works was founded in 2015, with offices in New York and Los Angeles. In their own words, Applied specializes in design, planning, strategy, and implementation for a broad range of mission-driven organizations. Their team includes Craig Dobie, Founding Creative Director, Brad Scott, Founding Managing Director, and Elliott Scott, Creative Director.

Atkinson Hyperlegible (2019-2020) is a free neo-grotesque typeface created by Applied Design Works for Braille Institute of America, Inc, which is based in Los Angeles. Named after Braille Institute founder, J. Robert Atkinson, it has been developed specifically to increase legibility for readers with low vision, and to improve character recognition. The project was the winner of the Graphic Design category in Fast Company's 2019 Innovation by Design Awards. In this video, Craig Dobie, Brad Scott, and Elliott Scott provide a behind-the-scenes look at the development of Atkinson Hyperlegible.

The physical 4-style font family was designed by Elliott Scott, Megan Eiswerth, Linus Boman and Theodore Petrosky.

Atkinson Hyperlegible differentiates common misinterpreted letters and numbers using various design techniques:

  • Recognizable Footprints: Character boundaries clearly defined, ensuring understanding across the visual-ability spectrum.
  • Differentiated letterforms: similar letter pairs are differentiated from each other to dramatically increase legibility.
  • Unambiguous Characters: designed to increase legibility and distinction.
  • Exaggerated forms: shaping of letters is exaggerated to provide better clarity.
  • Opened Counterspace: open areas of certain letters are expanded to provide greater distinction.
  • Angled spurs and differentiated tails: they increase recognition and define distinctive style.

Avenir Next World

The original Avenir typeface was designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1988. Unlike Futura, which has partially colored Avenir, Avenir is not purely geometric---it has vertical strokes that are thicker than the horizontals and a lower case o that is not a perfect circle. And just as most fonts from the 1980s, Avenir has shortened ascenders. These nuances aid in legibility but the small x-height makes it less elegant.

In 2012, Akira Kobayashi worked alongside Adrian Frutiger on Avenir Next. Akira kept expanding Avenir to cover more languages. Avenir Next World family, released by Linotype in 2021, is an expansive family of fonts that offers support for more than 150 languages and scripts. The subfamilies include Avenir Next Hebrew, Avenir Next Thai, Avenir Next Cyrillic, Avenir Next Arabic and Avenir Next Georgian. Avenir Next World contains 10 weights, from UltraLight to Heavy.

Contributors besides Adrian Frutiger and Akira Kobayashi: Anuthin Wongsunkakon (Thai), Yanek Iontef (Hebrew), Akaki Razmadze (Georgian), Nadine Chahine (Arabic), Toshi Omagari (Arabic) and Elena Papassissa (Greek, Armenian). [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

And the facility of combinations is further enhanced by the use of contextual alternates in opentype.

I saw a need for a collection of typefaces that are non-clinical and non-conformist, and some that are coarse, rough and distorted---errors that might come from poor exposure when put on film, enlargements from small point texts, or maybe quality loss from successive generations of photocopies.

The aim of Leland is to provide a classic notation style that feels just right with a balanced, consistent weight and a finessed appearance that avoids overly stylised quirks. The font is named after Leland Smith, creator of the Score music notation software.

As text font, Martin Keary and Simon Smith developed Edwin (2021). Edwin is a free typeface adapted from the C059 typeface (from URW++ Design and Development GmbH) by MuseScore BVBA for its music notation and scoring applications.

Characterized by outward-pointing top serifs, this typeface is designed for use in athletic lettering, logos and titling. Zetafonts writes: Mixing an Egyptian serif, low contrast approach with the curved endings and open shapes of humanist sans grotesques, it was developed to embody the energetic and friendly nature of the startup scene---a feeling of innovation, information and energy, with a desire for simplicity and straightforward communication. The basic design shapes for the font come from the strong personality of the extrabold letterforms drawn by Francesco Canovaro for his StartupItalia logo, that informed the display design of the four darkest weights (from medium to black).

Terminator fonts

The fonts that could match those used in the Terminator movies are listed here:

  • Earth. From a discussant on Dafont, we quote: Both Terminator Real NFI and SteelWolf Medium (two of the most popular Terminator fonts) were created long after both The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) had been released. The onscreen logotype and titles by Pacific Title for T1, T2, and even T3, all utilize a phototype known in pre-digital form as Earth. Dan X. Solo managed to provide an ID (http://luc.devroye.org/DanSolo-Earth.gif) in one of his many Dover Publications books on typography. Elfring Fonts (http://www.elfring.com/earth.htm) created a somewhat altered digital family of fonts, also called Earth, during the 1990's. It's possible that Elfring Fonts created the original 1970's typeface but it's also possible that they simply have access to the original phototype film reels or samples. Either way, they have not released a more historically accurate version of Earth in digital form. Earlier uses of Earth predate 1984's The Terminator by many years, as this titling on Frederik Pohl's 1977 novel Gateway (http://smsa.org.au/assets/gateway-frederik-pohl.jpg) proves. Not to mention being featured in numerous other films and TV shows of the 1980's, including Blade Runner [license plate props] (1982), Automan (1983), Tightrope (1984), Airwolf (1984), and Humanoid Defender (1985). So there you have it. Earth has been around since the 1970's and is an exact match (with a little digital tweaking) for the Terminator logotype and titles. .
  • Future Earth (2011, V. Sarela). Based on the Terminator logo.
  • Earth (Elfring). Elfring writes: This is an original design from Elfring fonts, flavored by the science fiction of the 1950's. Earth is available as a heavy display font and a lighter headline font. Each font type is offered in two distinct variations of the basic design, Earth and Earth 2.
  • Terminator (1993, Allen R. Walden).
  • Terminator Real NFI (2002, Thomas W. Otto at Norfok).
  • Steelwolf Medium (1992-1996, Tom C. Lai, TLai Enterprises). Lai writes: There is a bootleg version of SteelWolf Medium circulating around the PC world. The file is called "terminat.ttf" and yields a font called "Terminator Two" when installed. This TrueType file was converted from a 1993 version of SteelWolf Medium, and all of the shareware info was wiped out in the process. Instead of showing the proper copyright and contact info, it will instead show "Converted by ALLTYPE".
  • Terminator Two. Unknown date and designer, except for a reference to Page Technology Marketing. But read the comment about Steelwolf above.

Viktor Zumegen

In 2020, German designer Viktor Zumegen designed a versatile variable font, Varianz. He writes: Varianz is a variable font that contains four standalone fonts with different characters and five intermediate instances as a basis. With the four font characters, Sachlichkeit, Lebendigkeit, Eleganz and Robustheit, a two-dimensional space is opened up, in which users can move around freely. By using the two sliders of this variable superfamily, it is possible to merge the four font characters smoothly and individually. Designers can thus decide exactly how much character of Sachlichkeit, Lebendigkeit, Eleganz and Robustheit should be contained in the design language of Varianz. [Google] [More]  ⦿
