Miloš Ćirić

Serbian book illustrator, graphic arts teacher and phototype, woodtype and linocut letter type designer, b. Despotovo, 1931, d. Belgrade, 1999. His sons Rastko and Vukan write about both aspects of his life. His CV: he graduated in 1954 from the Academy of Applied Arts, Belgrade and took his Masters Degree in 1959, under Professor Mihailo S. Petrov. He was professor at the Faculty of Applied Arts, University of Arts, Belgrade from 1964 until 1997. He was Head of the Graphic Department from 1974 to 1975. His publications include Graphic identification 1961-1981 (SKZ, Belgrade, 1982), Graphic communications 1954-1984 (Vajat, Belgrade, 1986), Heraldry 1 (University of Arts, Belgrade, 1983) and Coat-of-Arms of Belgrade, Heraldry 2 (Cicero, Belgrade, 1991). Most of Ćirić's types were for Cyrillic, while some have Latin alphabets as well. Many would be classified today as poster types, type to accompany illustrations. The list of his faces:

  • Rastko, Latin, 1955: It is a versal typeface made in only one weight. Rastko himself thinks it was devised as light, almost linear and it was a part of his character.
  • Vukan, Latin, 1960: Named after his second son, Vukan, this is a sharply cut orthogonal typeface.
  • Galerija Grafiki kolektiv, Cyrillic, 1962 (Graphic Collective Gallery): A beautiful Cyrillic display face. This was the first of his typefaces transformed in a computer font.
  • Triptihon, Cyrillic, 1962 (Triptych): Another cut face, but this time really taken from the sample made in linocut. The prototypical Cyrillic poster face.
  • Akademija, Cyrillic, 1966 (Academy): This typeface was made for the University and Academy where he worked. It was designed so that it can be used equally well on the paper, metal plates, seals, plaques and everything else Academy needed. He used similar faces on book covers and charters, in solemn situations. Rastko: Although one may think it is an ordinary serif face, it contains Cira's specific typographic handwriting. The shapes are almost geometrically reduced thus providing a decorative effect, legibility and possibility to be transferred in all materials..
  • Bolsko, Latin, 1966/67/68: Bol is a small place on the island Brač. This simple condensed headline typeface was designed for pedagogical purposes made to be used for lectures at the Faculty of Applied Arts abd in its graphic identity.
  • Devojačko, Cyrillic, Latin, 1969 (Maiden): A curly affectionate face.
  • Ćirićica, Cyrillic, 1970/72: This typeface was designed as a result of the first research on transforming Serbian handwritten Cyrillic into constructive letterforms. The raw model was the manuscript of the Fourth Gospel (John's Gospel) written at time of Despot Djurdje Barnković (1428) created then by by a Inok from Dalša. The result was a letterform of optimal proportions. The study was made on the occasion of the opening of the new building of the National Library, Republic of Serbia.
  • Vojničko, Cyrillic, 1975 (Soldiers): When designing this typeface Ćirić consulted the book Blue Line of Life (Plava linija života) by Branko V. Radičević, a book about monuments and tombstones posted along roads. It is a sentimental ornamental headline face.
  • Face VMA, Latin, 1976/77: A big project for the Military Medical Academy (abbreviated VMA) in which the letters had to be constructed on grids using rulers and compass only. The result is a Bank Gothic look.
  • Bogradsko, Cyrillic, Latin, 1982: This typeface was used for designing the covers and title of his second book of graphic communications.
  • Duklja, Cyrillic, Latin, 1984: In this case the typeface makes basis of graphic identification. As a model for designing the typeface of Montenegrin Lexicographic Institute was a text from leader seal of Petar, Prince of Duklja. Ira wrote that he enlarged and systematize the letters from the drawing which was made in time when the seal was in good condition and that he wanted to preserve the freshness of irregularities and that there were several weights in each letter while their height is only optically the same. It seems that save for that irregularity which inspired and provocative vagueness this model could not offer many clear stylistic characteristics. But what ira could read from those forms is the language of their linocuts and cut symbols. Thus his personal style naturally added to all that was missing to finish the face. In compromise between typeface with serifs and sanserifs in combination of legibility and universal applicability he saw practical solution for many tasks.
  • Iva's typeface, Cyrillic and Latin, 1986: Rastko: My brother's daughter, Iva, was the first child that joined our family of applied artists. Ćirić immediately awarded himself with the title of granddad, opened the door of his studio and showed her all those games and toys from the world of the applied and other arts. Apart from the crazy games, obligatory signum and many other things Iva got many picture books which her grandpa made from time to time. The picture books contained poems, drawings, pictures and of, course letters. On one of those picture books entitled Grandpa' Stories I have found, so far, the only place where the typeface was used. It is a type of typeface imitating relief forms.
  • Vukov bukvar, Cyrillic, 1987 (Vuk's Abecedary): One of the rare faces with lower case letters, this typeface is dignified and named after Vuk Kardžić.
  • Sava's face, Cyrillic, 1987: A gorgeous old slavonic style typeface with upper and lower case.
  • Epitaf, Cyrillic (Epitaph, my name, unknown year): An unpublished typeface found by his sons in the files. Ćirić used it to write names of births and deaths of friends and family members in a notebook. It could be seen as a prototype for tombstones.

Michael Abbink

Mike Abbink (b. 1967) earned a BFA in Fine Arts, and another one in Graphic Design and Packaging from Art Center in Pasadena. Born in 1967, he was a graphic designer at Meta Design San Francisco doing corporate and web design. In March 1999 he co-founded Method, Inc., a San Francisco-based company specializing in communication strategy, interaction and graphic design. Michael now works at Wolff Olins in New York.

Designer of the sans serif family FF Kievit (2000). This font family is also in the FontBureau collection, and is by many seen as the long-term replacement of Helvetica and Frutiger. FF Kievit won the typeface award at the ISTD TypoGraphic Awards 2001. It was also used to make the house font CDU Kievit for the CDU party in Germany. With paul Van der Laan, he codesigned FF Kievit Slab in 2013 in nine styles.

At Agfa Monotype, he and others designed the large GE Inspira family (2003-2005), about which Michael writes: I actually spent over a year working on the design of Inspira. It was Patrick's [Patrick Giasson] early concept that GE was drawn to, but at that time, it was way too funky and more display like then they wanted. I then took patricks original thoughts and spent several months refining the roman and created an italic (which Patrick did not do) which was then handed to monotype to create more weights and refine a bit. What you see in Inspira now, is quit different from Patrick's original concept. However, the more unique forms from Inspira are indeed driven by patricks original drawings and are the interesting forms of the font (v, x, z, y). I was also involved with art directing and working with the Monotype team (for over a year) in developing all the other iterations of inspira. All told, there were many people involved in the refinement of the Inspira font family. but I must say i would have to take a large credit in the design of inspira along with Patrick. I believe Patrick's designs and my designs created a nice balance that has made Inspira what it is today and of course let's not forget the hard work of monotype in really taking the font to the next level with all the weights, the condensed version, and exotics (Greek, Cyrillic, Turkish, etc.). Michael now works at Wolff Olins in New York.

From 2000 until 2006, he created MichaelAbbink-FFMilo-2000-2006.gif">FF Milo (FontFont), which was followed in 2009 by FF Milo Serif. These faces were developed for magazine and newspaper print and have therefore short ascenders and descenders. Paul van der Laan helped with the production. In 2014, the series was augmented with FF Milo Slab (by Mike Abbink and Jesse Vega).

In 2014, Abbink finished Brando (Bold Monday).

Lebanese designer who created Beantown (2004, an athletic lettering font), Staubach (2004, an athletic lettering typeface 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 typeface (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 typeface 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.

George Abrams

George Abrams (b. 1919 or 1920, Brooklyn, d. 2001, Manhasset, NY) is the designer of the gorgeous font families Augereau, Abrams Caslon and Venetian, at Expert Alphabets in Great Neck, NY. Abrams taught lettering and typeface design at the Parsons School of Design, the New School for Social Research and at the Columbia University Teachers College. He had over 50 years of Madison Avenue experience designing ads, logos, typography and lettering for Fortune 500 companies and more. His early typefaces were photo types published by Headliners in New York City. He died on June 7, 2001 at age 81.

About Augereau: This is the only digitized typeface by George Abrams [in fact, the digitization is due to Charles Nix, for George Abrams]. Its 28 weights include over 2,000 sorts including expert, OsF,&alts. Augereau is named for Antoine Augereau, who was a typographer who had a few claims to fame - one was that he was Claude Garamonds teacher, and two was that he was sentenced to death for heresy in 1544. Heresy for a typographer in 1544 meant that he printed something that the king or the Pope didn't like and died for it.

I would like to thank Poul Steen Larsen for clarifying the history of Abrams' Venetian: The Abrams Venetian was donated to Mr. Poul Kristensen of Herning (in Jutland), then Printer to the Royal Court (which he has ceased to be in 1995). You are right about the font being today locked to Poul Kristensen' old Linotron, from which not even Linotype experts brought in to unlock it, could get it out for conversion into an up-to-date digital font. So the font will disappear from the type arena when Kristensens Linotron one day breaks down. You can trust me, for I was the one who established the contact between George and Mr. Kristensen back in 1986. The font was first used in 1989 in a book by Martin Lowry, British renaissance historian, with the title Venetian Printing. George Abrams' chalk drawings of the entire alphabet in regular and italic were scanned, more precisely vectorised on-screen and downloaded in Denmark by the Kristensens and therefore, in one sense, could be called the first Danish complete font. A sample of the first use of Abrams' Venetian. A second sample from "Venetian Printing". Abrams Venetian was digitized at some point by Jorgen Kristensen for Poul Kristensen Grafisk Virksomhed Printer.

Apostrophe wrote this about Abrams Caslon: This was actually reviewed by Caflish and, if I remember correctly, Mark vonBronkhorst, so there are at least 3 or 4 copies of it out there, other than the Abrams' estate original data. Sumner Stone once said that this is the best Caslon he has ever seen. At least he has seen it; I haven't.

The typefaces by Abrams (Abrams Venetian and Augereau) are preserved in the New York City-based Abrams Legacy Collection (see also here).

In 2005, he created Handasi, about which he writes: The idea behind Handasi, Arabic word for engineered, was to design a font without a single curve that would at the same time resembles traditional curves-rich Nask style. The font strictly uses straight lines. The design of Handasi is based on the Mutamathil Taqlidi design style where each letter is represented by one normal glyph assigned the basic Unicode number and an additional final shape glyph to letters capable of dual connection within traditional Arabic text.

In 2010, he founded PBLC---Büro für Visuelle Kommunikation---with three other partners in Hamburg.

Codesigner of FF Bauer Grotesk (2014, Fontfont), with Felix Bonge. Fontfont writes: FF Bauer Grotesk is a revival of the metal type Friedrich Bauer Grotesk, released between 1933 and 1934 by the foundry Trennert & Sohn in Hamburg Altona, Germany. The geometric construction of the typeface, infused with the Art Deco zeitgeist of that era, is closely related to such famous German designs as Futura, Erbar, Kabel and Super Grotesk that debuted a few years earlier. However, Bauer Grotesk stands out for not being so dogmatic with the geometry, lending the design a warmer, more homogenous feeling. The oval O is a good example of this approach, as are characteristic shapes like the capital M or the unconventional varying stroke endings on the c and s which give them a less constructed look.

He developed Mako (2007), a type family for text and image in magazines. Earlier, he created AutoPacHousehold. Nobile (2010) is part of the Google font directory. Through the Open Font Library, one can get the source Fontforge code for this open source sans family. About Mako, he writes that he submitted the font to Fontsmith, which sat on it for a while and rejected it, only to publish a few weeks later Lurpak, which according to Vernon is too similar to his rejected design. Free fonts at Google Code by Vernon, as of the end of 2010 include Coda (a heavy elliptical face), Nobile (mentioned above), Corben (a curvy bold typeface in the style of Cooper Black), and Gruppo (a thin sans).

Barry Eshkol Adelman

A web page devoted to Hugh J. Schonfield's reformed Hebrew script. I quote: In his 1932 book The New Hebrew Typography (London: Denis Archer), Hugh J. Schonfield ranted about his dissatisfaction with the Hebrew writing system. His complaints included a limited selection of typefaces, the lack of a capital-lowercase distinction, and finding Hebrew type ugly. His solution was to revise how Hebrew was written. Schonfieldian script has capital and small letters; Hebrew script letters do not have this distinction. Five Hebrew letters have special forms for when they occur at the ends of words; Schonfieldian does not have any final forms. Hebrew letters forms usually are emphasized horizontally; Schonfieldian letters are emphasized vertically like Latin letters. Punctuation and numerals are horizontally flipped versions of the usual Western forms; in Hebrew script, they are not flipped. The pages include four truetype fonts made by Barry Eshkol Adelman, called Schonfield. Schonfield experiments: Cable Light Hebrew (1932), Caslon Old Face Heavy Hebrew (1932). [Google] [More]  ⦿

Werner Affolter

Werner Affolter ran a phototype and printing company in Basel, Switzerland, called Affolter und Gschwind AG, Fotosatz&Reprotechnik. In 1981, Affolter published an extensive catalog entitled Letterama that showed over one thousand alphabets. Few of those were original, so I suspect he acted as a vendor of sorts, but at least a couple seemed original, or were claimed to be original or exclusive: Guigoz, Moby Dick. Moby Dick was revived in 2014 by Nick Curtis as Call Me Ishmael NF.

Some examples of the types shown, in alphabetical order: Antique Wood MP363 (art nouveau), Antique Wood MP 364 (oriental simulation face) [the Antique Wood series is quite extensive, and is just numbered], B+T Classic (roman), Bernhard Fett, Beton Fine Line (typewriter), Burko (avant garde family), fonts starting with G, Gaston Fett (a squarish gothic typeface also called Gipsy), Gaston Halbfett (also called Grassy), Gemini Computer, Germanic Sans (more avant garde and Lubalin-style glyphs), Hollandse Mediaeval, Hollywood (a 3d decorative family), typefaces starting with K, Lineamarca (slabby), Linear (avant garde, geometric monoline), Melen (experimental, geometric), Meola Bookman swash (decorative), Metro (art nouveau, after the Metroploitaine font), Moraine (squarish), the Old Foundry sub-collection [another mysterious numbered collection; examples include some uncials, and some more art nouveau faces, some Victorian ornamental faces (F260 through F262), more art nouveau (MP418 through MP420) and blackletter faces (MP421)], Pierrot (psychedelic, groovy), Phydian (one of many Western style ornamental faces0, Ronda, Roulette, Roulette Schattiert (=Rajah) (more Western fare), Ruby (shaded caps), Runic Small (condensed), Rustic (wood log look), typefaces starting with S, Spengler Gothik, St. Clair (ornamental), Zither (calligraphic script).

Fred Africkian

Aka Fred Afrikyan. Yerevan, Armenia-based architect, letterer and type designer who wrote The Art of Letter-Type by Fred Africkian. 120 Tables of Armenian decorative types (1984). See also here. Taboo (Canada Type) is a Latin typeface inspired by lettering from Africkian's book. Patrick Griffin of Canada Type writes: Virtually unknown in the West, Africkian was one of the most talented eastern block artists. Though mainly a calligrapher working with traditional tools, he embraced geometry on multiple occasions for the sake of drawing simple modern Armenian and Cyrillic alphabets. Though he normally tried to maintain in his work a certain homage to Mesrop Mashtots (5th century Armenian monk who invented the Armenian alphabet), his late 1970s experiments made use of so many modern elements that the results were hailed as "real art mingled with science." Examples of his lettering: A, B, C, D, E, F, G. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Tim Ahrens

Just Another Foundry was established in 2005 by Tim Ahrens (b. 1976, Heidelberg, Germany). He studied architecture at the University of Kasrlsruhe and type design at the University of Reading (2007). He now lives in Oxford, where he works as a type designer and architect. In 2005 he established Just Another Foundry. His typefaces:

  • Mashine (2005). An octagonal / mechanical family.
  • His MA project in Reading was based on Herb (2007), a hookish display face. Herb was extended in 2010 into a full family, which is still genetically linked to blackletters.
  • Facit (2005, sans family).
  • Zalamander (2006). An angular comic book family. Scans: i, ii, iii, iv.
  • Lapture (2004). A redesign of Albert Kapr's (angular, calligraphic) Leipziger Antiqua of 1971.
  • With Brian Jaramillo, he designed JAF Peacock from 2007-2010. It was inspired by the Flair typefaces of the 1970s and contains 1200 glyphs and alternates.
  • JAF Domus Titling (2011). Designed with Shoko Mugikura, this is a rounded typeface with classical Roman proportions.
  • The sans serif family Linotype Aroma (1999).
  • JAF Bernini Sans (2012), a winner at TDC 2013. A corporate humanist sans family consisting of tens of styles, from compressed to narrow and regular, and partitioned into a serious JAF Bernino Sans and a more playful JAF Bernina Sans. The ample choices, especially in degrees of compression, makes this a prime candidate for the 2012 Oscars.

At ATypI 2008 in St. Petersburg, he spoke about Font Remix Tools and on Optical Sizes. In 2010, he started a web font service. In 2011, I found his name listed as an employee of the web font service Typekit.

Otl Aicher

Ulm-born designer (1922-1991) who, in 1953, along with Inge Scholl and Max Bill, founded the influential Ulm School of Design. He became famous as the lead designer for the 1972 Olympics in Munich. His main contribution to type design was Rotis (1988, Agfa-Monotype). He also created the typeface Traffic for the München public transport. He adapted Univers for Bulthaupt.

Aicher was a world expert on pictograms, having designed, e.g., the pictograms for the 1972 Munich Olympics, and his visual language system of over 900 pictograms. Robin Kinross and Erik Spiekermann discuss the pros and cons of Rotis.

Hrant Papazian sums up Rotis, a family disliked by many type designers, but that has some oomph: Rotis -the typeface- is admirable not for its typographic merit, but for its lion-hearted spirit, its golden intentions - things so totally lacking in almost every other font ever made. Norbert Florendo, who worked with him on and off, muses: If anything, Aicher was a formalist in turmoil. A philosopher in spirit who was shackled by his sense of order. He called for revolution in design and typography, but adhered to the grid (anti-nature) in distrust of chaos. He admired Adrian Frutiger immensely and one can undoubtably see how Univers influenced the Rotis matrix. If one reads deeper into Aichers Typographie, one will see Aichers concepts as being less typographic (relating to type design and type layout) and more involved with humans within a rapidly changing environment in need of new symbology and notation systems. [...] I am far more an admirer of Herr Aicher than Rotis the type family. Rotis was named after the village (Rotis über Leutkirch) in Allgäu where Aicher lived from 1972 and died in 1991. Typophile discussion. URW shows the Monotype WMF Rotis family (2007) which was exclusively used by WMF AG. The Rotis family consists of Rotis Serif (1988), Rotis Semi Serif (1988), Rotis Sans Serif (1989) and Rotis SemiSans (1989).

Author of these books:

This biography reveals that Aicher was a German soldier in the second world war, both on the Russian and French fronts. In 1953, he founded the HfG (Hochschule für Gestaltung) in Ulm, and he helped with the graphic design for the Olympic Games in München in 1972. Discussion of his contributions by the typophiles. Markus Rathgeb wrote Otl Aicher (2006, Phaidon Press Limited, London), which is about Aicher's life as a graphic designer, and has little about his type design.

Muhammad Zuhair Albazi

Lahore, Pakistan-based type designer who made a Naskh font, Musa Albazi Naskh (2009).

He also created Adobe Naskh.

His main Arabic typeface to date is Zuhair Albazi Naskh, an advanced OpenType Arabic typeface, which is based on the Ottoman manuscript. He writes: This unique typeface contains an unmatched range of features known from the Arabic script. It is not merely a font but an ultimate typesetting and design tool for the Arabic script in classic Naskh style, with letters variants and calligraphic styles, specifically developed to take advantage of the extensive functionality for Naskh Arabic typography. The typeface allowd many controls such as shape alternates, space adjustments, mark placements, and swashes. Two very special features: Calligraphic Naskh kashida (Tatweel) upto three levels of elongations, so the Kashida distribution and frequence can be precisely controlled to create Arabic calligraphic documents without a calligrapher; thousands of kerning pairs for the fine adjustment of letters specially after Raa, Zaa, Waw and before Kaaf.

Regarding the Economy of Typeface: an article explaining Albers' vision for typography. His typefaces: Display (1923), Schablonenschrift (1923-1926), Futura Black (1926, a great stencil face---Paul Renner and the Bauer design office made it into a typeface in 1929, and included it in the Futura series, even though Futura is quite different in concept) and Kombinationsschrift auf Glas (1928-1931; combine a few elements---it was recreated as P22 P22 Albers by Richard Kegler from 1995 until 2004; see also here). Kombinationsschrift is inherently modular, the principle at the basis of FontStruct and other font creation tools. On my pages, I sometimes call the blatantly modular faces in the style of Kombinationsschrift piano key fonts.

Other modern digitizations of Albers's include ThM Architype Albers (2013, Thijs Mertens). [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

BA Graphics was located in Chester, NY, and later in Toms River, NJ, and now sells its fonts through MyFonts.

The complete list: ITC Aftershock, Alexandra Script (a formal script), Allure, Alons Antique, Alons Classic, Angular, Animated Gothic, Barnboard, Bedrock, Bodoni Roma (1993), Cabernet Sauvignon (2007, a take on Didot---I can't believe BA Graphics trademarked this name!), Cafe Aroma, California Sans, Calafragalistic (1992), Caslon Manuscript (1992), Champ Ultra (1995, Western billboard font), Chunky Monkey, Cookie Dough, Crackers, Crescent, Down Under, Elegante, Elephant Bells, Ellington Manor, Equate (1993), Extreme (chalk writing, 1996), Felicity Script, Flix, Freaky Friday Extreme, French Vanilla, Galactic, Geo (2000), Granny Smith, Gusto Black, Headline Gothic, High Intensity, Island Sans, Italian Didot, Kresson Black, Linear Gothic, Lorraine Script, Mardi Gras, Mega (1993, a fat mini-spurred didone), Milano, Nightmare, ITC Outback, Pecos, Ravenwood, Red Dawg, Relaxed Fit, Richmond Hill, Road Gothic (1996), Robertson, Senegal, ITC Serengetti, Shazam, Sign Gothic Bold Condensed, Slam Dunk, Sleepy Hollow, Swank Gothic, Title Gothic Light, Torino Modern, Triumph Gothic, Vinchenso Regular, Wackado, Yakety Yak (1994), Zany, ITC Ziggy, Zipty Do, Queen of Hearts (1991, script), Steel Magnolias (1995, blackletter family), Steeplechase (1992, wild West saloon font), Waimea (1992, poster font), Black Rising (2006, a black military style face), Summer Nights (1993, script), Sugar Shack (1995, curly script), Beaches and Cream (1996, a sans turned into a connected script), Jr High (1994, sports lettering).

Alonso Flair with its flared pants (2008) and Squat (2011, a stunted black wood style face) were started by Alonso, but finished after his death by John Bomparte, who wrote this obituary: Throughout his career at the legendary Photo-Lettering, Inc. (one that spanned four decades), Bob created original typefaces and tailored type by modifying, revising and filling out families, fashioning pieces of type for hand-lettered jobs, as well as being involved with the updating of a number of well-known logotypes. Bob was blessed with natural teaching abilities; and those in social and professional circles who had the good fortune to know him considered him not just a type designer but a mentor and a friend. As one such person close to him put it, he was a "graphic technician... back when computers were not even in site for graphic arts, he would take on any intricate&complex graphic project that others would shy away from and come up with a solution that achieved a masterpiece. I'll always remember someone saying 'this can't be done' and Bob saying let me see it and a short time later, there it was --done&perfect. I would like to think that attitude rubbed off on me. Along with this gift for teaching and explaining the complex, Bob exhibited a level of professionalism that was unsurpassed. A number of years ago when the need came to make the transition from the traditional to digital way of creating fonts, he rose to the challenge admirably. Towards the last few years of Photo-Lettering, Bob played a vital role in the conversion to digital, of many of the typefaces within the collection, notably those fonts that carry the prefix PL. More recently, Bob Alonso released several fonts through ITC, Adobe and his independent foundry, BA Graphics. Bob was on the cutting edge of his best work, and in the circumstance of his untimely passing, left a measure of unfinished designs. However, the spirit of his typographic talents and his fine sense of humor lives on through the many much-loved, and popular fonts he has left us: fonts such as Cookie Dough, Equate, Elephant Bells and Pink Mouse, to name a few.

Ardwan AlSabti

Designer in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Behance link.

Mandaic, the most Southeastern Aramaic dialect spoken in antiquity in Babylonia (Mesene, Characene, Khuzistan), reflects similarities to Jewish Babylonian Aramaic, both belonging to the Eastern Middle Aramaic branch. Although most scholars located the origin of the baptizing community in the East Jordan regions (Mark Lidzbarski, Rudolf Macuch, Kurt Rudolph) the Mandaeans are considered to spent a large part of their still controversial and mysterious history alongside the big rivers (Euphrates, Tigris, Karunriver) in the southern borderland between present-day Iraq and Iran.

Pedro Reis Amado

Started and maintained by Portugal-born Pedro Amado, who teaches in the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University Porto, the LiveType Project focuses on the development of complete Fonts using Fontforge. This project aims that everyone involved can and will learn more about typography and type developing in a collaborative method. It will provide the fonts and the font files regularly to users, developers and anyone with an interest in type. They are working on their first font. On Typophile, the question came up regarding the use of the (free) FontForge software rather than the commercial FontLab editor. Amado's reply and additional points:

  • 1. No third party. One of the main directives of this project is to ALWAYS keep it on an Open [Source] Basis so we don't depend on third party, commercial solutions.
  • 2. Open Source. I really believe in the future of Open Source Software. Bear with me for a moment - I work as a Design Tecnhician in a Fine-Arts Faculty in Portugal. As you might know, our public education system doesn't have that much money. The ones who do are usefull courses/faculties like engineering So this situation leaves us with obsolete growing, underdeveloped, non-market responsive solutions. All this because people who are running the system are spending money in vaious stupid ways. If you are familiar with Manuel Castells' opinions, you might agree that one way to promote a better future is through the use of Open Source solutions. In a very practical way, save some money to invest on more important things - enter Linux & Open Source Software, hence the use of Fontforge. Take the case of our neighbours, the spanish region of Estremadura. The public education system developed their own personalized, scaled to needs Linux Distro - Linex - that they implemented on the whole school system. It worked and the savings were huge! Brasil and some regions in Africa and India are also taking on similar initiatives I know these are difficult to implement solutions, and calculating the costs arent this simple. But this takes to me next point.
  • 3. Training. Imlementing this cost saving solutions means taking on a higher maitenance cost and further system administration - hey! I work on an University arent Universities supposed to promote knowlegde? How about using these systems, develop them, teach students howto, and then coming full circle when students start to use them in their professional lives and saving money to companies etc Nevertheless students should be also trained on the tools that the market needs - so teaching commercial tools and practices is also necessary. So the perfect solution would be to train students how to do it independently of the tools. So as a member of a Faculty I feel its my obligation to start using this systems, and start promoting them (along with commercial and established solutions). The LiveType Project is exactly this - I want to show people that is possible to use the free, open source solutions to learn how to do it with professional quality. And talking about learning
  • 4. Collaboration. The fact that they learn how to do it on a Linux platform, or on a Mac platform or on a Win platform doesn't affect what they learn. This is really it. I don't consider myself a type designer Im just an amateur typographer and type designer whanabe, so I also want to learn how to type design better, who knows if I grow to be good at it? I also want to learn no matter the platform. I also want to learn and knowlege should be acquired in a Free, Open Source Collaborative way! Things work out better if we collaborate with each other.

Art Director at Vatson & Vatson (now Vatson Wunderman) in Estonia. At ATypI 2005 in Helsinki, he spoke about Digitizing the "Estonian national" typefaces. In his own words: His fonts Pagana, Vaderi and others are based on a lettering of such Estonian mid-20th century typographers as Günther Reindorff, Paul Luhtein and Villu Toots. ATypiI reports: Mart Anderson is producing a range of revival typefaces based on the lettering on 20th century Estonian book designers. The character of their (mainly pen-drawn) work is rather like woodcut lettering, with gently curved slab sides. To make them suitable for typesetting, the characters have been slightly tidied up. Sample of his work on posters, 2005-2006. Scans of faces: Sula (2005, flowing and angular), Panin (2006, playful), EiBanner (2006, comic book face), AmaKaas (2005, again that soft angular theme).

Climate activist and lead designer for 350.org. His abridged CV in his own words: Born in Columbus, Ohio. Played with Legos. Loved to draw. Played drums in a high school band.

Moved to Washington DC to intern at Free Range. Moved to San Francisco to work for 350. Made some good friends. Ate too many burritos. Moved to Brooklyn for the hell of it.

In 2014, Matthew created the free sans typeface family Klima for the climate movement: Klima is my version of a more relaxed DIN: slightly wider, with a similar geometric foundation but more plainspoken. In three weights with obliques, free for non-commercial, non-climate denial use. It is exquisite and quite good, except perhaps that the italics are just obliques (slanted romans).

Khajag Apelian

Freelance graphic designer from Lebanon. Born in Sharjah, UAE, an Armenian with a Lebanese nationality. Graduate of the Type and Media program at KABK, 2009. There, he designed Arek, an Armenian typeface specifically designed to replace the typefaces currently used in school books. It is a fresh interpretation of the ancient Armenian script used in the old manuscripts. My ambitious plan for this project is to include a serif and a sans serif version, containing upright and cursive forms, with multiple weights, display versions and initials. However, currently the project includes only the serif upright, regular and black weights, in addition to the cursive and the initials. This typeface was awarded First Prize in the Granshan 2010 competition for Armenian text types. Arek was finally published by Rosetta Type Foundry in 2012.

After graduation, he started freelancing as a graphic and type designer in Amsterdam. Partner at The Place.

Other typefaces include The Chattam (2009, a Clarendon revival), Boujour (2008, an ultra fat deco face), Moudwi (2007, an experimental Arabic detached typeface inspired by the Unified typeface created by Nasri Khattar).

His typefaces: Arek, Hagatir, Boujour (2008, piano key typeface), Mulsaq (2008, Arabic), Moudwi, Nuqat (2010: a dot matrix typeface by René Knip, Khajag Apelian, Jeroen van Erp, and Reza Abedini).

The exhibition made its European premiere at the MusĂ©e des Arts DĂ©coratifs in Paris accompanied by a poster inspired by the clean engineering of the automobiles.
  • Poudre (2013). This font was created by Apeloig for a poster advertising an exhibition on the prolific inventor and industrialist Alfred Nobel. Apeloig's concept was inspired by Nobel's invention of dynamite and work with subatomic particles.
  • Ali (2013). An origami stencil typeface.
  • Aleph (1994). Based on a simple arc, and influenced by Excoffon's banco (1952).
