Abdul

Lebanese designer who created Beantown (2004, an athletic lettering font), Staubach (2004, an athletic lettering face based on the lettering of the Dallas Cowboys), Wagner Modern (2011), Kroftsmann (2004, on octagonal face), Kavelry (2004, based on the Kemper Insurance logo), 4th and inches (2008, rounded octagonal; based on the proprietary font used by Russell Athletic, makers of sports apparel as used by Georgia Tech BKB, Washington State, Alabama State, Tennessee State, Mississippi Valley State, and many others in college football), and PopWarner (2004, a Bank Gothic lookalike), Wagner Zip Change (grotesque), Richardson Fancy Block. Creator of some free soccer team lettering alphabets in 2010: Louisville, Puff Script, Red Raiders, Richardson Fancy Block, Wagner Zip-Change (based on grotesque signage letters), ACMilan2009, ASRoma, ChampionsLeague, England2007, MLSUniform, RealMadrid2009. About his GeauxXPDF face (2010), he writes: I had extracted a nearly complete set on this one a few years back, except for J and Z which I created on my own. As best I can tell, it only exists as an upper case font without most punctuation, so I created that too to make it more useable. I don't know how much LSU [Louisiana State University] paid for this design, but to me it always looked like something that Larabie or Iconian would have given away. He also extracted HDRadioAlphabet from a rounded Arial face he found on HD radio. His UScoreRGK (2012) is a blocky angular font used on-screen by Fox Sports. LCD Display (2012) is a 28-segment LED font. UA Terrafont (2012) was based upon the vector art in this PDF file.

In 2013, he published the athletic lettering family High School USA and the octagonal typeface UA Cadet.

Ashley Muir

Type designer at Red Rooster, where she published Creighton (2009, a sans family done with Steve Jackaman), Carlingtown (2009, an almost art nouveau face), Glasgow Pro (2010; a refreshed version of Steve Jackaman's Glasgow grotesque family), Harry Pro (based on the original design by Marty Goldstein (and C.B. Smith) done at VGC in 1966), Karnak Pro (2009, a slab family based on the original design by Robert Hunter Middleton, ca. 1931-1942), and Ronsard Crystal (2009, based on a VGC photo display font in the 1950s), together with Red Rooster's boss, Steve Jackaman. About Creighton: It was our initial intention to develop a suitable lowercase for Les Usherwood's Elston typeface, based on a few characters from an old German typeface called Hermes Grotesque (Woellmer, Berlin). However, the new design quickly took on a life of its own, and we decided to call it Creighton. A crisper version of Creighton is Megaphone (2009).

Typefaces from 2010, all with Steve Jackaman at Red Rooster: Shamus (uncial), Ryder Gothic Pro (a revival of Roslyn Gothic by Harry Winters, 1972), Pickworth Old Style Pro (rustic), Wurlitzer Pro (slab serif), Eden Pro (based on the original 1934 Ludlow drawings by Robert Hunter Middleton), Connemara Old Style (uncial), Overtime LCD Pro (LED simulation face), Phosphate Pro (Solid and Inline).

Typefaces from 2011, still with Steve Jackaman at Red Rooster: Phoenix Pro (after the condensed artistic sans called Phenix by Morris Fuller Benton, 1935, ATF), Guildford Pro (+Light, +Medium, +Titling; after Stephenson Blake's Guildford Sans, which in turn was identical to the 1928-1929 typeface by Hans Möhring called Elegant Grotesque), Granby Elephant (after the fat grotesk face Granby by Stephenson Blake, 1930), Franklin Gothic Pro (after Morris Fuller Benton's original from 1903), Windlesham (2011, a basic sans family), Relish (2011, another basic sans family), Rocklidge Pro (2011, with Ashley Muir; based on Jana (Richard D. Juenger, VGC, 1965), Packard New Style and Packard Old Style (2011, with Steve Jackaman, after Packard by Oswald Cooper (1913) and Morris Fuller Benton (1916, ATF).

In 2006, Astigmatic published their typewriter collection, which includes Military Document, Bank Statement, State Evidence Small Caps, State Evidence, Urgent telegram, Library Report, Overdrawn Account, Customs Paperwork, Incoming Fax and Office Memorandum.

From the bio and various pieces of information, one is led to believe that Brian was born in Poland, and now lives in Miami, but that may be wrong.

In 2010, he placed a free font at the Google Directory, Syncopate. Along the same lines, we find the derived square serif face Stint Ultra Condensed (2011, Google Web Fonts) and Stint Ultra Expanded (2012).

In 2011, several other faces followed there, like Ultra (fat didone), Maiden Orange, Special Elite, Just Another Hand, Crushed, Luckiest Guy (comic book face), Aclonica, Redressed, Montezuma (a curly connected upright script), Devonshire (brush script), Fondamento (calligraphic lettering), Yellowatil (connected retro script), Righteous (free at Google Web Fonts: inspired by the all capitals letterforms from the deco posters of Hungarian artist Robert Berény for Modiano), Ribeye and Ribeye Marrow> (cartoon and/or tattoo style lettering---free at Google Web Fonts), Spicy Rice (2011, free festive display face at Google Web Fonts).

Typefaces from 2013: Freckle Face (grunge), Grand Hotel, Purple Purse (Purple Purse draws its inspiration from a vintage Ivory Soap ad from the 1950's. Somewhat of a cross between Bodoni and Pixie, this font finds that it never truly takes itself seriously).

Stiggy & Sands is the American typefoundry of Brian Bonislawsky and Jim Lyles, est. 2013. Their first commercial typefaces, all jointly designed, are Luckiest Guy Pro (a fat comic book font based on vintage 1950s ads) and Marcellus Pro (a flared roman inscriptional typeface with both upper and lower case, originally published in 2012 by Astigmatic).

Dalton Maag
[Bruno Maag]

Swiss designer Bruno Maag (b. Zürich) founded Dalton Maag in 1991, and set up shop in Brixton, South London. He serves the corporate market with innovative type designs, but also has a retail font line. Ex-Monotype designer Ron Carpenter designs type for the foundry. In the past, type designers Veronika Burian and fabio Luiz Haag have worked for Dalton Maag. A graduate of the Basel School of Design, who worked at Stempel and was invitedd by Rene Kerfante to Join Monotype to start up a custom type department. After that, he set up Dalton Maag with his wife Liz Dalton. He has built the company into a 40-employee enterprise with offices in London, Boston, Brazil, Vienna and Hong Kong.

Bruno Maag designed these commercial fonts:

  • Aktiv Grotesk (2010) was published as an alternative to Helvetica, a face Bruno hates with a passion.
  • Co (2007): a rounded monoline minimalist sans codesigned by Bruno Maag and Ron Carpenter.
  • Cordale: a text family.
  • Dedica (2007): a didone face.
  • Effra and Effra Italic (2007-2009): sans family by Jonas Schudel and Fabio Luiz Haag. Followed in 2013 by Effra Corp.
  • Fargo (2004): a humanist sans in 6 weights.
  • Foco: sans family.
  • Grueber (2008): a slab serif.
  • InterFace (2007): an extensive sans family; one weight is free (2001). See also InterFace Corporate (2007).
  • King's Caslon
  • Lexia (1999, Ron Carpenter and Dalton Maag): a slab serif family.
  • Magpie (2008) is a serifed family---Dalton Maag was able to trademark the name Magpie despite the fact that Vincent Connare had created a face by that name in 2000. Well, as with so many of Maag's announcements, it took siome time before he gave credit to Connare---in fact, Magpie isConnare's font.
  • Pan (1996). A text family at 1500 US dollars per style.
  • Plume (2004): a display face inspired by calligraphy, co-designed with Ron Carpenter.
  • Royalty (1999): a stunning art deco display family.
  • Southampton.
  • Stroudley (2007): a sturdy large counter condensed sans by Bruno Maag, Ron Carpenter and Veronika Burian.
  • Tephra (2008): a collaboration with Hamish Muir. This is an experimental multi-layered LED-inspired family.
  • Tondo Corp (2007, at Dalton Maag): a rounded information design sans family designed by Veronika Burian for Dalton Maag.
  • Ubuntu (2010): this is a team effort---a set of four styles of a free font called Ubuntu. This font supports the Indian rupee symbol. Some work for the Ubuntu Font Family was done by Rodrigo Rivas Costa in 2010. Download via Fontspace.
  • Viato: a simple sans family co-designed by Bruno Maag and Ron Carpenter in 2007. This tapered terminal sans family includes Viato Corp (2007) and Viato Hebrew (2013).

Fonts sold at Fontworks, and through the Bitstream Type Odyssey CD (2001). At the ATypI in 2001 in Copenhagen, he stunned the audience by announcing that he would never again make fonts for the general public. From now on, he would just do custom fonts out of his office in London. And then he delighted us with the world premiere of two custom font families, one for BMW (BMWType, 2000, a softer version of Helvetica, with a more virile "a"; some fonts are called BMWHelvetica), and one for the BMW Mini in 2001 (called MINIType: this family comprises MINITypeRegular-Bold, MINITypeHeadline-Regular, MINITypeHeadline-Bold, MINITypeRegular-Regular).

Other custom faces: Tottenham Hotspur (2006), Teletext Signature (by Basten Greenhill Andrews and Dalton Maag), Skoda (Skoda Sans CE by Dalton Maag is based on Skoda Formata by Bernd Möllenstädt and MetaDesign London), UPC Digital, BT (for British Telecommunications), Coop Switzerland (for Coop Schweiz), eircom, Lambeth Council, Tesco (2002), PPP Healthcare, ThyssenKrup (Dalton Maag sold his soul to these notorious arms dealers; TK Type is the name of the house font), Co Headline (2006), Co Text (2006, now a commercial font), Telewest Broadband, Toyota Text and Display (2008), TUIType, HPSans (for Hewlett-Packard, 1997). His custom Vodafone family (sans) (2005) is based on InterFace. In 2011, Dalton Maag created Nokia Pure for Nokia's identity and cellphones, to replace Erik Spiekermann's Nokia Sans (2002). The Nokia Pure typeface has rounder letters, and is simultaneously more legible and more rhythmic.

In 2010, the Dalton Maag team consisted of Bruno Maag and David Marshall as managing and operations directors, and Vincent Connare as production manager. The type designers are Amélie Bonet, Ron Carpenter, Fabio Haag, Lukas Paltram and Malcolm Wooden.

Typefaces at Dalton Maag from 2014 include Soleto (a simple sans) and Prometo (an organic stressed sans). Soleto (Bruno Mello, Fabio Haag, Fernando Caro, Rafael Saraiva and Ron Carpenter) won an award at Tipos Latinos 2014.

Interview in 2012 in which he stresses that typefaces should above all be functional.

FatFonts is a graphical technique conceived and developed in 2012 by Miguel Nacenta (a lecturer in human-computer interaction at the School of Computer Science, University of St Andrews, Scotland), Uta Hinrichs (originally from Lübeck in Germany, she is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Calgary in Canada), and Sheelagh Carpendale (a computer science professor at the University of Calgary).

Numerals in vector fonts developed by the team have a thickness that is proportional to their value. Numerals can also be nested. The (free) fonts were converted to opentype by Richard Wheeler (a PhD student at The Sir William Dunn School of Pathology of Oxford). Uta Hinrichs designed Gracilia, Cubica, and Rotunda. She codesigned Miguta with Miguel Nacenta. Finally, Richard Wheeler himself created the LED face 7Segments. [Google] [More]  ⦿

As the runaway vehicle sped up to over 100 mph, all four passengers were killed in a fiery crash in the San Diego River. The loss was unquantifiably devastating. This immensely tragic event led my aunt to testify before congress with damning evidence that would initiate the recall of millions of Toyota vehicles.

Håvar Ingmund Henriksen

Håvar Ingmund Henriksen (b. 1980) is from Skjervøy, in Nord-Troms, in the northern part of Norway. His interests include technology and comics. In 2009, he used FontStruct to create LCD DotMatrix. He writes: This is the Dot Matrix LCD Font used on the Ricoh Aficio AP3800C, Aficio AP3200 and AP306D printers, among others. He also explains how to use FontForge to extract fonts from PDF files. He says: Basically you just need to select "Extract from PDF" in the filter section of the "Open Font" dialogbox used when opening files. When you have selected your PDF file, a "Pick a font" dialogbox will open where you could select wich font to open. Then you'll just need to compact the font using the "Encoding" menu and selecting "Compact". This will remove all non-used glyphs in the font. Then you would have to edit the Font Info, and save the font as a font file (usally TrueType is best). Quote from the article: "Beware though, sometimes when a font is embedded into a PDF it will only contain [glyphs for] characters used. So, if the PDF file that you are trying to extract from does not contain the letter "P" [glyph], then that letter will not show up in FontForge." (You could see an example of this in the image above, the PDF file the font was extracted from did not contain glyphs for all the letters in the english alphabet). [Google] [More]  ⦿

Hendricus Theodorus Wijdeveld

Hendrik Wijdeveld was a Dutch architect and art deco paper artist (1885-1987). His lettering inspired Wendingen AF (1998, ACME Fonts: LED simulation; named after Wijdeveld's art deco magazine which he founded and headed from 1918-1931) and Architectuur NF (2006, Nick Curtis: based on this). Check Wijdeveld H Th - Art Deco Design on Paper by Hans Oldewarris (2010 Publishers, 2003). That book shows stencil-like art deco faces such as Wendingen and Amsterdam Deventer, both designed in the 1920s. He designed many letter types for special projects, such as book covers, buildings, and letterheads. Examples: a poster entitled Architectuur Tentoonstelling (1931), a poster entitled Internationaal Theater Tentoonstelling (1922), and an illustration for De Bijenkorf (1922). Alternate URL.

Hinting is Dead

The typophiles discuss the demise of hinting in fonts. Type designers can rejoice, because they can now concentrate on the artistic job of designing curves and white spaces. They should not have to deal with engineering tasks such as hinting. That task should be left to the font rendering software. The process should be automated at that level. Some passages from that discussion:

  • The Wikipedia: Increasing resolutions and new approaches to screen rendering have reduced the requirement of extensive TrueType hinting. Apples rendering approach on Mac OS X ignores almost all the hints in a TrueType font, while Microsoft's ClearType ignores many hints, and according to Microsoft, works best with lightly hinted fonts.
  • Theunis de Jong: Hinting for low screen resolution will always be necessary. However, it seems that the process of finding out what to hint is moving towards the type renderer, rather than the designer (as seen in, for example, FreeType). I can think of various good reasons for this. A system-local hinting engine can consider local hardware issues such as resolution and pixel representation up to the order of RGB pixels on an LCD screen. I seem to remember FreeTypes hinting works on both horizontally and vertically aligned LCD RGB pixels, where ClearType is focused onto horizontal alignment only. Theres no way all this (excluding!) hinting can be built into every font. Another good reason is consistency: some fonts are very well hinted, others not at all. Using the type render engine to calculate hints means every font gets an equal chance to look good. (Or bad.) A final reason is, the two main hint types of TrueType and Type 1 are mutually exclusive. The designer has to pick one. FreeType can work directly with the raw curves.
  • Bill Troop: If you go back to 1989, everyone was still thinking in terms of basic type libraries of only a very few hundred fonts. Even so, the TT developers claim they would have parity with the Adobe library in a year proved delusory, and let's not forget the whole thing came about because Adobe was charging exorbitant licensing fees. In those days, when nobody thought of tens of thousands of fonts, it was tenable for Apple and MS to think of putting the hinting burden primarily on the font, rather than the rasterizer. But Adobes philosophy, to put the burden on the rasterizer rather than the font, was always, one hoped, going to win out in the end otherwise independent type designers would go mad. It looks like TT is embracing this, thanks to better and better anti-aliasing. Nevertheless, even in ClearType, a tiny wrong instruction can wreak havoc, as shown by the error in Constantia revealed in a thread here some time ago. What its looking like is that rasterizers are going to be doing a better and better job, but that hand-hinting will always offer opportunities for the best possible output unfortunately, of course, such hinting is always tied to a particular rasterizer. Could there ever be universal rasterizer?

Kummaeno

Kummaeno calls himself an art director, graphic stuntman and fontstructor. He lives in Sweden where he works at Infobahn Reklambyra. He "fontstructed" the pixel/stencil family Soft Cell (2010), and the squarish faces Samizdat (2010, his remix of the constructivist T-26 font "Revolution" by Douglas Carter, 1994), Gearbox (2010), FS Crude (2010, a heavy face inspired by 224MKSD Black by Masayuki Sato), Manifesto (2010, influenced by Donald Beekman's FF Tsunami) and Aegis (2010; think ITC Bolt Bold). Modicum (2010) is a pointy severely angled black sans. Bonfire (2011) is a semi-blackletter face. Soft Cell (2010) is an LED font. About the MICR font MegaSpacer (2010), he says: Inspired by the fantastic "MICR" font set. And the Solaris font design from the nineties by Büro Destruct (ah, those were the days). Old but good ideas brought to Fonstruct. Fun and easy as pie. Basking (2010) looks like Martin Wenzel's FF Marten. Aerostyle (2010) is a techno / Eurostyle face inspired by Masayuki Sato&Tsuyoshi Nagae at Maniackers Design. Kuiper (2010) is a remix of the techno face Straker by Rian Hughes. Gamepad (2010) is an angry fat display face. Piquance (2010) and Quanted (2010) are ultra-fat decorative faces. Jacobine (2010) is a bellbottom face. Bitrate (2010) is a carbon copy (in his words) of Data 90 (Rian Hughes).

FontStructions from 2011: Bayonet is a high-contrast art deco display face. Arbour is a piano key face. Pugilista is a fat boxy face. Pistolera is where the West meets psychedelia. About Syncope he says: You have seen the likes before ("FF HardSoul Ultra" by Donald Beekman or "Loudine" at pintassilgoprints.com). Constructivism with extreme bulk. Ultra-fat retro letter shapes. Ubangi is a hip "remix" of Rian Hughes's Darkside. FS Space Opera is party art deco. FS Rasterbator is a dotty raster halftone exercise. [Google] [More]  ⦿

MADType (mattdesmond.com)
[Matthew Desmond]

MADtype (est. 1996) is Matt Desmond's place in the type world. He has had a prolific career that started out with shareware fonts while Matt was at the Minneapolis Technical and Community College. His page back then said A haven for quality shareware type for the Mac. Later, Matt started mattdesmond.com, and co-founded the Test Pilot Collective (est. 1998 with Joseph Kral and Mike Cina). Many of his early faces were experimental and/or futuristic. In late 2003, mattdesmond.com disappeared, and MADtype, commercial now, resurfaced at the MyFonts site. Currently, Matt is based in Minnetnka, MN. He has also lived in Atlanta, GA, Fayetteville, GA, Rochester, NY, Redwood City, CA, and San Francisco, CA. His fonts can also be purchased via You Work For Them. He also does commissioned type design. Some fonts are freely available at the Google Font Directory.

MuirMcNeil Design Systems
[Hamish Muir]

MuirMcNeil Design Systems is a project-based collaborative between Hamish Muir and Paul McNeil, est. 2010. Their activities are focussed on exploring parametric design systems to generate appropriate solutions to visual communication problems. Hamish Muir is a founding principal of 8vo (1985-2001) and co-editor of Octavo (1986-1992). He currently combines work as an independent graphic design consultant specialising in editorial, information and systems design with teaching part-time at the London College of Communication. Paul McNeil is a London-based independent graphic design consultant specialising in type, information and systems design. He is a Senior Lecturer in Postgraduate Graphic Design at the London College of Communication and lead developer, MA Contemporary Typographic Media.

They have several parametric and modular software syystems for typography and type design. These include 20-20 (done in 1974: a modular design idea in the spirit of FontStructor, but without any active software), Interact (done in 1994---grid-based parametric screen fonts), Three Six (an experimental optical / geometric type system consisting of six typefaces in eight weights. It explores the possibilities of using systematic principles to generate geometric typeforms which are distinctive at large point sizes but which can also be read at smaller sizes in bodies of extended text), Four Two (an extension of Three Six). The Three Six project led to a number of multiparametric dot fonts. It was published by FontFont in 2012.

In 2014, four commercial modular and pixelish typeface families were published, Panopticon (a system of layered 3d geometric typefaces), Intersect, Nine (Metric, Mono) and Interact. In that series, the nine-weight geometric almost-typewriter typeface Nine Mono (monospaced and monoline) stands out.

Muir helped Dalton Maag with the development of Tephra (2008), an experimental multi-layered LED-inspired family.

Nick Curtis: Typefaces from 2011
[Nick Curtis]

Typefaces made by Nick Curtis from 2011, not listed elsewhere on these pages: Jersey City NF (modeled after Times Gothic (1905, ATF)), Petty Despot NF (2011, also modeled after Times Gothic, and possibly renamed from Jersey City NF after Berthold---yes, the same Berthold again---complained about the name Jersey since one of its fonts by Gustav Jaeger was named Jersey. This is my educated guess..., and two thumbs up to Nick for picking the appropriate name Petty Despot NF). Olde Megrat NF is patterned after Antikva Margaret, designed by Zoltán Nagy for VGC in the mid-60s. Herkimer Bunrab NF is an upright scriptish face with bunnyears that is based on Hercules (1926, Amsterdam Typefoundry). Blackbarry NF (2011) is a faithful revival of Deutsch Black (1966, Barry Deutsch, VGC), a unicase piano key typeface. Bindlestiff NF (2011), which won the 2011 Devroye Memorial Medal for funniest typeface name, revives Schmallfette Binder Style (1959, Joseph Binder, Stempel AG), a squarish tightly set headline face. Decked Out NF (2011) is a fat inline face modeled on Dektiv in Homage to the Alphabet. Bazoo Tow NF (2011) is a fun fattish headline face that is a faithful reroduction of Basuto (1927, Stanley Baxter for Stephenson Blake). Are You Shaw NF (2011) is an all-caps blackboard bold face inspired by Pygmalion, a face found in Homage to the Aplhabet. Hoodoo U NF (2011) is a roly-poly romp through the alphabet, based on Jürgen Riebling's irrepressible Mr. Big from the 1970s. Big, bold, bubbly and a little brash, it's a natural choice for happy headlines. The handlettered Mikeys Roman NF (2011) has an uppercase based on the work of Mike Stevens, and a lowercase based on the work of Alf Becker. Outgribe NF (2011) is a rough, raw typeface that is based on the lettering in Ben Shahn's iconic poster protesting the execution of Nicolo Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti in 1927. Nellie Kay NF (2011) is a monoline script face, based on an example by Ross F. George. Shaq Attack NF (2011) is a wooden plank style or brushy face inspired by an alphabet of Alf R. Becker. Relampago NF (2011) revives Hans Möhring's bilined face Elegante Lichte (1928). Squirrely Shirley NF (2011) is a bouncy face based on Phoenix (unknown creator) in Schriftatlas. Spread Out NF (2011) is modeled after Ross F. George's Split Caps. Salzburger Plakat NF (2011) is based on an Austrian winter sports festival poster from 1907 by Swiss poster designer Otto Baumberger (1889-1961). Rightly So NF (2011) is a squarish face based on Geometric Gothic (1884, Palmer and Rey)---it is hard to imagine that this almost pixelish style was around at that epoch. Kenotaph NF (2011) is a condensed headline slab serif modeled after Stymie Obelisk (1930s, Morris Fuller Benton). Vasari NF (2011) is based on Ancient Gothic (1891, William W. Jackson, Keystone Type Foundry). Moslem (Boston Type Foundry) was revived as Suffiya NF (2011). Looky Cookie NF (2011) has eyes placed on the glyphs. Iago NF (2011) is a powerful headline sans inspired by two ATF faces from the 1880s, Othello and ATF Black Caps. Big Bag NF (2011) is called an industrial-strength titling face by Nick Curtis---it has design elements of Hans Eduard Meier's Syntax Antiqua. Highpoint Gothic NF (after Morris Fuller Benton's 1932-1935 typeface Raleigh Gothic Condensed). Fernburner NF is an all caps shadow face, modeled after Hans Bohn's 1929 typeface Orplid. Planscribe NF is based on types used by the Leroy Automatic Lettering Machine, a tool for architects. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Open Font Library (or: OFL)

Set up in 2006 and finalized in 2011 by Jon Phillips, the original goal of this site was summarized as follows: The Open Font Library is a sister project of the Open Clip Art Library. The goal of this project is to collect public domain fonts so that they may be used freely. In 2011, they wrote: At the 6th Libre Graphics Meeting 2011 in Montreal, the Open Font Library, the Open Font Library community and Fabricatorz launch an online library of fonts that all type designers and font enthusiasts may participate in. The goal of the Open Font Library is to offer great fonts, help designers share their work, accelerate the usage of the @font-face tag available in modern web browsers, and to help educate everyone about how to design and use fonts. The Open Font Library received sponsorship and direction from Dave Crossland. Other major contributors to the project include Alexandre Prokoudine, Ben Weiner, Ed Trager, Eric Schrijver, James Weiner, Jon Phillips, Nicolas Spalinger, and Robert Martinez, who developed the Open Font Library logo. Initial patrons to the project include Mozilla Foundation, River Valley Technologies, TeX Users Group and Yes Logic. The Font Library has also benefited tremendously from input by participants at the Libre Graphics Meeting 2011. Others mentioned in earlier years include Benji Park, Nicu Buculei, Alexandre Prokoudine, and Simos Xenitellis.

The original batch of free fonts includes Inkcalig (2006, a calligraphic face by James Kilfiger), LetsTracebasic (2006; a *very* readable light sans, even at small sizes), LetsTraceruled, RDS (2003, LED simulation face), TribalBenji (2005, by Benji Park), handfont (2005, Benji Park), handfontshadow (2005, Benji Park), PugsleyOblique (2006), AlphabetofChildren (2006, based on 16th century illuminated caps), AnimalSilhouette (2006), and Fold (2006).

Typeco.com
[James Grieshaber]

James Grieshaber earned a BFA in Graphic Design from Rochester Institute of Technology. Based first in Rochester, NY, and now in Chicago, IL, Grieshaber ran Typeco, a typographic services and solutions company established in 2002. James Grieshaber (b. Detroit, 1967) most recently was on staff of P22 Type Foundry, where he designed many type families and helped establish International House of Fonts. He has been honoured with an award of Excellence in Type Design from Association Typographique International (ATypI) for his Gothic Gothic (2004, blend of blackletter and English style), and by TypeArt'05 (for Operina Cyrillic). Designer and Co-editor of the Indie Fonts book series, Grieshaber now teaches typography at RIT and runs Typeco. MyFonts sells his fonts now. YouWorkForThem sells the Super Duty family (stencil), Glyphic Neue, the Trapper families, Chunk Feeder, Gothic Gothic and Cusp. Identifont page. FontShop link. Behance link. Details on some of his faces:

  • Gothic Gothic (2001), an extended blackletter codesigned with Christina Torre. In 2004, he received an award of Excellence in Type Design from Association Typographique International (ATypI) for his Gothic Gothic type design.
  • The Glyphic Neue display family was inspired by the Op Art style of lettering in the United States that ran rampant in many photo type houses in the 1960's and 1970's---I like to call it the "piano key style".
  • Chunkfeeder (2002) is a beautiful monospaced octagonal OCR-like family.
  • Cypher (2003, an LED/LCD family) has 24 weights. Of these, Cypher7 is free.
  • Duty (2002) is a sans face codesigned at T26 with Lee Fasciani.
  • The stencil family Super Duty (2004) has 8 variations. There are also techno variant called Superduty Condensed, Superduty Regular, Superduty Narrow and Superduty Text.
  • Cusp (2001-2005): a techno display family with 18 weights, including an LED style, art deco styles and Cusp De Stijl.
  • Trapper (2004) is an 8-weight exaggerated ink trap font family which comes in Trapper Round and Trapper Sharp versions.
  • Zaftig (2008, Typeco) is a super-fat face.
  • P22 Operina (2003, in Romano, Corsivo and Fiore versions) is based on Vicentino Ludovico degli Arrighi's calligraphy used in his 1522 instructional lettering book La Operina da Imparare di scrivere littera Cancellarescha. This book contains what is considered to be the earliest printed examples of Chancery Cursive. P22 Operina won an award at TypeArt 05. Operina Pro contains over 1200 glyphs. In 2010, Paulo Heitlinger compared P22 Operina favorably to another digital chancery font, Poetica (by Robert Slimbach, Adobe), which, according to him [and I agree], lacks vigor and dynamism.
  • P22 Posada (2003, with Richard Kegler): based on lettering of Mexican printmaker José Guadalupe Posada (1851-1913) that was used for some of his posters and broadsides.
  • P22 Arts and Crafts Tall (1995, art nouveau), P22 Arts and Crafts Hunter (1995). Both based on alphabets by Dard Hunter, 1908-1910.
  • P22 Art Deco Chic (2002), based on the Art Deco hand lettering of Samuel Welo, ca. 1930. P22 Art Deco Display (2002) is a Broadway style face.
  • Churchy (2002).
  • He offered (offers?) a handwriting font service for 100 USD. Free trial face Reenie Beanie (2002). Signature font service for 50 USD. Reenie Beanie (2002) is now offered (as a joke, I assume) as part of the Google open font directory (for free web fonts).
  • P22 Garamouche (2004, with Richard Kegler). Comes with Garamouche Ornaments (2004).
  • Segoe Print (2006, Monotype Imaging). [Isn't this Googlee's competition?] This is an informally hand-printed face co-designed with Brian Allen, Carl Crossgrove, James Grieshaber and Karl Leuthold at Ascender.
  • P22 Cezanne Pro (2006). Has over 1,200 glyphs.
  • P22 Yule (2005; Heavy, Inline): a stone chisel family with a hint of Neuland.
  • P22 Numismatic (2005): originally offered by the Devinne Press, and based on ornaments and letters used by 15th and 16th century engravers of seals and coins; however it looks very much like Otto Hupp's Numismatisch (1900, Genzsch&Heyse).
  • Black Ops One (2011) is a military stencil face, available at the Google Font Directory.
  • Short Stack (2011) is Grieshaber's free contribution to the Comic Sans genre. It was published by Sorkin Type and can be downloaded from Dafont.
  • Atomic Age (2011) is a free font at Google Font Directory. It was inspired by 1950s era connected scripts seen on nameplates of American cars.
  • Supermercado One (2011, Google Font Directory) is a low contrast semi geometric typeface inspired by naive industrial letters. More a signage face than a web font.
  • Typeco Grecian (2012, FontStruct) is loosely based on a Wells & Webb Grecian style woodtype circa 1846.
  • Typeco De Stijl (2012, FontStruct) is based on Van Doesburg's De Stijl magazine's name plate in 1923. Typeco Topaz Serif Tall (2012, FontStruct) is a pixel typeface. Typeco New Wave (2012, FontStruct) is an op art party font.
  • Metamorphous (2012, Sorkin Type) borrows its arches from Gothic cathedrals---it was inspired by Jonathan Barnbrook and by the free font Morpheus.
  • HWT Geometric (2013, Hamilton Wood Type Foundry) is a squarish wood type family: Geometric began its life as a metal typeface from the Central Type Foundry, circa 1884. Soon after, this design was officially licensed to Morgans & Wilcox and was shown in their 1890 catalog in Regular, Light and Condensed Light variations. After acquiring Morgans & Wilcox, Hamilton Manufacturing offered Geometric Light Face Condensed as their own No 3020 and the Geometric Light Face as No 3021. HWT Geometric has been expanded digitally to include a Regular Condensed version.

Typehouse
[David Moore]

Type foundry that was active during the photo composition era. Creators of typefaces at VGC, such as Moore Computer (1968, an LED face) and TH Alphabet Soup (1975, a VAG Rounded style face). Now, Moore Computer and Moore Swash are both attributed to David Moore. Zach Whalen on Moore Computer: The minimal aesthetic properties of E-13B saw extended influence in a number of type designs created in the late sixties and early seventies, and many of these MICR-based faces saw extensive use in relation to videogames. The typesetting and printing industries were undergoing rapid and dramatic changes during this period, adapting to new technologies like photo- and CRT-based compositors, so a number of companies and design studies were going out of business or changing hands. In addition, the decorative typefaces echoing the style of E-13B were often seen as novelty products, so records about several of these typefaces and fonts are cursory may be unreliable. Nevertheless, the evidence indicates that the first full alphabet based on E-13B was a font called Moore Computer, published by the Visual Graphics Corporation (VGC), possibly as early as 1968.

Urtd
[Ondrej Jób]

Bratislava-based type and graphic designer (b. 1984, Czechoslovakia). He graduated from AFAD Bratislava, and in 2009 from the Type and Media program at KABK, where he designed Doko, a serifed text family derived from handlettering. Earlier, he created the Preissig-look family Kompilat (2007), and the monospace font Monoxil (2007).

In 2008, Peter Bilak, Eike Dingler, Ondrej Jób, and Ashfaq Niazi created the 21-style family History at Typotheque: Based on a skeleton of Roman inscriptional capitals, History includes 21 layers inspired by the evolution of typography. These 21 independent typefaces share widths and other metric information so that they can be recombined. Thus History has the potential to generate thousands of different unique styles. History 1, e.g., is a hairline sans; History 2 is Peignotian; History 14 is a multiline face; History 15 is a stapler face, and so forth.

He started Urtd, and sells these fonts: the ION family (2010, LED simulation faces), Outliner (2008, architectural lettering), and the icon sets Ico Weather (2010), Ico Time (2010) and Ico Phone (2010). Klimax Bold (2008) is in the ultra-ultra-fat art deco category, and won an award at TDC2 2009 for display face. See also Klimax Plus (2009).

Creations in 2011: Clip (2011) is a 4-style Opentype-feature-loaded paperclip family.

Typefaces made in 2012: Remi (useful monospaced geometric sans family), Bismuth (angular techno family), Bismuth Stencil.

In 2013, Ondrej Job published the script typeface Odesta.

Typefaces from 2014: Pexico and Pexico Micro (pixel typefaces).

A great series, some of which were originally published at Fontshop, see, e.g., FFBodoniClassic (1994). MyFonts: When the first of Wiescher’s Bodoni Classic fonts came out in the 1993, there was nothing like it. Up to then, virtually all Bodoni revivals had been given clear-cut forms and square serifs. But Bodoni’s originals from the late 1800s were never as straight and simplistic as is often assumed: they had rounded serifs and slightly concave feet. Wiescher digitized a wide range of Bodoni letterforms, including a wonderful script-like family called Chancery and a nice series of Initials. Having accomplished his mission twelve years later, he began making personal additions to the family, such as the more decorative Bodoni Classic Swashes. Recently a useful little family was added to the clan: LaBodoni is sturdier and less optically delicate than most Bodonis, and therefore more usable as a text face. Wiescher made Metra Serif (2009), Principe (2008) and Paillas (2009). Prince (2009) is a curlified didone.
  • Romain du roi: In 2008, Wiescher designed the two-style Royal Romain, which is based on the Romain du Roi of Philippe Grandjean, which was completed in 1745 after Grandjean's death by Grandjean's successor Jean Alexandre and Louis Luce. Wiescher: The Romain du Roi was for the exclusive use of the Louis XIV. It was never sold or given to any other king or government. The king of Sweden tried to scrounge a set, but the king refused. This font is the basic design for such famous fonts as the Fournier and Bodoni. Just so the Romain du Roi doesn't get lost in the digital turmoil I set out to redesign it in 2004 and finished now in early 2008. I did a lot of research in France's National Library. A good excuse to visit Paris is always welcome!!!

The following text was excerpted from his wikipedia page: At 14 years of age, Wiescher went to Paris to study fine art. He financed his stay by doing portraits on the Place du Tertre on Montmartre. In the sixties Wiescher studied graphic design at the Berlin Academy of Fine Arts. (Since November 2001, Berlin University of the Arts.) He financed his studies by sidewalk painting and drawing portraits. While doing sidewalk paintings, he met the typeface designer Erik Spiekermann, who inspired his love of this branch of design. After two years he quit his studies, and went to Barcelona where he worked at the offices of Harnden & Bombelli, for whom he designed the OECD-Pavilion of the 1970 Osaka World Expo. In 1972 he moved on to Johannesburg working as an art director at Grey and Young advertising . In 1975, he returned to Germany, working first for DFS+R-Dorland, and then for the "Herrwerth & Partner" ad agency. At Herrworth, he was involved in introducing IKEA into the German market. In 1977 he became a creative partner in the Lauenstein & Partner ad agency, creating mainly campaigns for large German retail chains. In 1982 he started his own design office, creating work for editors (Markt & Technik, Systhema and Langen-Müller-Herbig), computer companies (House of Computers, FileNet) and he worked for Apple Computers designing their publications (Apple-Age and Apple-LIVE).
