Linotype Devanagari

This 5-style typeface family was published in 2019. Contributions:

  • The original 1977 Matthew Carter designs that were subsequently updated in 1983 for PostScript, under the art direction of Fiona Ross and Georgie Surman.
  • For the 2019 update, Monotype Studio was aided by Lisa Timpe and Gunnar Vilhjalmsson.
  • The 2019 fonts now contain all the Devanagari glyphs specified in Unicode for OpenType output.

Monotype's advertisement: Inspired by the late 19th and early 20th century Nirnaya Sagar designs, Linotype Devanagari is considered a traditional text face. Now available in five weights and suitable for a wide variety of print and digital uses, the design's open counters ensure high levels of legibility at small sizes and at modest resolution. A compact design, Linotype Devanagari also provides economy of space where textual real estate is at a premium. In addition, its large character set enables the setting of Hindi, Marathi, Nepali and is suitable for Sanskrit passages. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Ludvig S. Ipsen

Type designer based in Malden, MA. In 1903, he patented two typefaces for ATF, and many people believe that he therefore was the designer at ATF of ATF Florentine Old Style (1896). Mac McGrew writes: Florentine or Florentine Oldstyle was advertised by ATF in 1896 as a cap-and-small-cap design, but quickly replaced by Florentine Oldstyle No.2. with lowercase instead of small caps. Florentine Heavyface followed in 1898. The latter was renamed Florentine Bold, and condensed and extra condensed widths were added in 1903, and became popular advertising typefaces. Some of these were patented in the name of Ludvig S. Ipsen, and presumably he was the designer. ATF said of the Oldstyle: "Many of the characters are transcripts of the lettering of a famous Italian monument of the sixth century," although it is a rather bizarre novelty series.

The advertizing for Florentine Old Style was in The Inland Printer, March 1896.

In the digital age, we have these revivals and interpretations:

  • Florentine by URW. No date, no designer.
  • Florentine (2012) by SoftMaker. Earlier, SoftMaker had F761 Deco in its line-up.
  • OPTI Tommy by Castcraft.

Marek Sigmund

Polish designer of Drogowskaz (1975) for the Ministry of Transportation of Poland. This geometric sans-serif typeface is used in public signage in Poland since 1975. Its capital letters exhibit a strong influence from Johnston, while its lowercase letters are closer to Spartan. See also here for a discussion of Polish traffic signs.

Digital versions and/or extensions of Drogowskaz:

  • The free Drogowskaz font by Emil Wojtacki (2006).
  • EFN Tablica Drogowa (2001). A free font by Grzegorz Klimczewski.
  • The commercial typeface family Sigmund (2019, Mateusz Machalski, Borutta). This is a liberal extension of Drogowskaz. Machalski explains: With the increase of weight, Sigmund turns into a geometric display in the spirit of vernacular typography from the signs of Polish streets.
  • Next (2017, Ludovic Balland, Optimo). A sans family in 22 styles, including Text, Poster and Mono subfamilies.

In Vienna, you can still see some of the letterings "Lebensmittel", "Feinkost", etc. on the storefronts of mostly abandoned shops. Similar letters can be found on "Gemeindebauten" (council housing) from the 1920s. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

The Ampersand Forest
[D.C. Scarpelli]

Scarpelli's design and production clients have included the California Attorney General's Office, Napa/Sonoma Magazine, the American Cancer Society, Catholic Healthcare West, UC Hastings School of Law, Chevron, Frito Lay, the Oakland A's and the San Francisco Giants. He regularly designs theater graphics for companies throughout the Bay Area, and is resident Graphic Designer for 42nd Street Moon, Bay Area Musicals, and Silicon Valley Shakespeare. Additionally, he has created and edited several art books in the collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. His original training is in the theater. With his husband Peter Budinger, he has written and directed several plays, and appeared in numerous productions. They were theater majors, playwrighting students, and improv disciples together at Yale University. Scarpelli is currently Associate Director of the School of Web Design + New Media at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. He designed these typefaces:

  • The extroverted display typeface family The Fudge (2019), which comis in Skinny, Sleek, Thicc and Chonk styles.
  • Pamplemousse (2019), originally called Chelsea Morning: A family of casual-but-chic Sunday-morning display faces. Pamplemousse started out as a typeface based on the lettering of Gustav Klimt in his poster for the first exhibition of the Vienna Secession movement (Art Nouveau). This drifted into an homage to Rea Irvin's iconic masthead typeface for the New Yorker magazine. Finally, with the addition of a lowercase (absent from Irvin's typeface), a significant revision away from both Klimt and Irvin into a more casual space, Pamplemousse was born.
  • Ampir. A casual Modern typeface, suggestive of gilt sign-maker letterforms, influenced by the modular type forms of Yakov Chernikov. Roman and Cyrillic character sets.
  • Disquiet: Disquiet is a weird little display typeface designed to convey the free-floating anxiety of the mid-20th century. It is based on a single nongeometric form: the temple piece of a pair of horn-rimmed glasses---the kind worn by sweaty little men in offices who always seem to run the world in Atomic Age thrillers.The form is hexagonal, to give each letter a sense of being locked in---trapped. The double stroke gives it a nasty little bit of queasiness. And the negative spaces within the letters form mini-glyphs of their own---perfectly geometrical inside the fractured outer strokes.
  • Haggis: Haggis was intended to be a pseudo-sans-serif version of a traditional Insular Uncial. A bastard child of pub signage and rubber duckies, Haggis is not without its charms, and it certainly doesn't take itself too seriously.
  • Mrs. Keppel: Inspired by Stephenson Blake's 1884 typeface Windsor Light Condensed (made famous by Woody Allen's title sequences), Mrs Keppel finally appends an italic to this iconic face. Gentle in its design but firmly anchored in the fin-de-si├Ęcle, Mrs Keppel moves us forward to the 1910s, redolent of Ragtime and spiked tea. Named for the mistress of King Edward VII, who was likewise illegitimately linked to a Windsor.
