[Headline set in Pumpkin Soup (2013, David Kerkhoff)]


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 typefaces:

  • 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 typefaces 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 typefaces 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. Mike Abbink is the Executive Creative Director of the Brand Experience and Design Team within IBM Studios. Before that, he worked as a Creative Director for the Museum of Modern Art, Wolff Olins (New York), Saffron Consultants, Method (also co-founder) and as a Design Director at Apple Computer. His typefaces:

  • 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 co-designed FF Kievit Slab in 2013 in nine styles. In 2019, Abbink and van der Laan released FF Kievit Serif, which has wide apertures and large counters that make it quite legible.
  • 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. GE Inspira Sans and Serif (Mike Abbink, Paul van der Laan and Pieter van Rosmalen, Bold Monday) won an award in the TDC 2015 Type Design competition.
  • From 2000 until 2006, he created FF Milo, which was followed in 2009 by FF Milo Serif. These typefaces 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), which won third prize in the TDC 2015 Type Design competition. It was followed in 2016 by Brando Sans (Bold Monday).
  • IBM Plex (2017). A large free font family created by Mike Abbink and Bold Monday for IBM's new corporate identity. It includes IBM Plex Sans, IBM Plex Serif and IBM Plex Mono subfamilies. Direct download at Github. Aneliza (2018) is a fork that has a single storey g in the italics.

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).

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.

Abyme is a type foundry founded by Adrien Vasquez and John Morgan. Their typefaces:

  • English Egyptian (2011-2017, by John Morgan and Adrien Vasquez). English Egyptian is an interpretation of William Caslon's Two Lines English Egyptian of 1816, considered by some to be the first sans serif printing type to be sold commercially.
  • Nizioleti (2011-2017). An all caps stencil typeface designed by John Morgan and Adrien Vasquez, Nizioleti is named and modeled after the nizioleti, or Venetian street signs. Nizioleti is a typeface consisting of painted letters stencilled within white plaster panels directly onto the city walls, in use since the early 19th century.
  • Berthe (2011-2018), designed by Charles Mazé. Berthe is designed after another typeface called Série no. 16, whose first cuts were produced at the end of the nineteenth century by the Parisian type foundry Deberny & Peignot. It was engraved by Constant and Auguste Aubert under the direction of Charles Tuleu, the adoptive son of Alexandre Deberny whose mother, Laure de Berny, had bought from her lover Honoré de Balzac the printing house he didn't manage to transform in a profitable company. Série no. 16 quickly became a popular choice among printers and found its way into many editions of classic and popular texts. Review by Hrant Papazian, who wrote that it presents a congenial evolution of the theatrical Didone style of type. Lower contrast, fluid structures, humane proportions. It is like a Didot or Bodoni taking leave of the catwalk and relaxing among friends..
  • Mercure (Charles Mazé, 2010-2021). Mercure is based in part on Beaudoire's Elzévir, and also goes back to the epigraphic origins of Perrin's Augustaux.

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.

Michael D. Adams

Memphis, TN-based Michael Adams (Roadgeek Fonts) developed a series of (free) heavy sans US highway sign fonts in 2002: Roadgeek2000SeriesB, Roadgeek2000SeriesC, Roadgeek2000SeriesD, Roadgeek2000SeriesE, Roadgeek2000SeriesEModified, Roadgeek2000SeriesF, RoadgeekTransportHeavy, RoadgeekTransportMedium. In 2005, he extended his font collection to include UK, German and US highway signs:

  • Roadgeek 2005 Series B/C/D/E/E(M)/F fonts are intended to closely approximate Highway Gothic fonts
  • Roadgeek 2005 Series 1B/2B/3B/4B/5B/6B are intended to closely approximate the new fonts, and are inteded for dark-on-light background signs.
  • Roadgeek 2005 Series 1W/2W/3W/4W/5W/5WR/6W are close kin to the -B fonts, but are intended for light-on-dark background signs.
  • Roadgeek 2005 Transport Heavy and Transport Medium should approximate the fonts used on British highway signs.
  • Roadgeek 2005 Engschrift and Mittelschirft should approximate the fonts used on German highway signs.
  • Roadgeek 2005 Arrows 1&2, Icons, and SignBacks are intended to help you in approximating U.S. highway signs, and are based on sign specifications from the Nebraska online MUTCD/SHS manuals.

Vernon Adams

Vernon Adams (born England, 1967) was a furniture restorer, woodcarver and typeface designer. On August 24, 2016 Vernon Adams passed away from injuries sustained in a scooter accident in May of 2014. New Typography was his type design site. Vernon graduated in 2007 with an MA in type design from the University of Reading and lived in San Clemente, California. His wife Allison now holds the trademark and/or copyright to most of his fonts.

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).

In 2011, he added Coustard (a slab serif family), Damion (connected signage script), Smythe (Victorian), Radley (display face), Oswald (a reworking of the Alternate Gothic style: see this dedicated page; Oswald was updated continually by Vernon Adams until 2014. Vernon added Light and Bold weights, support for more Latin languages, tightened the spacing and kerning and made many glyph refinements throughout the family based on hundreds of users' feedback. In 2016 the family was updated by Kalapi Gajjar and Alexei Vanyashin to complete the work started by Vernon, and support languages that use the Cyrillic script), Candal (sans), Pacifico (connected signage face), Bangers (comic book face), Anton (heavy sans), Bevan (a reworking of Beton, a traditional slab serif display typeface created by Heinrich Jost in the 1930s), Six Caps (a condensed headline face), Meddon (a display font created from the handwritten script of an Eighteenth century legal document), Rokkitt (an Egyptian), Paytone One (headline face), Holtwood One SC (wood block simulation face), Monofett (white on black), Carter One (casual face), Francois One (gothic sans), Sigmar One (think mid twentieth century pulp magazine advertising), Bigshot One, Metrophobic, Mako, Francois One, Nunito (rounded; CTAN link), Shanti, Sigmar, Muli (minimalist sans), Kameron (an Egyptian), Stardos Stencil, Bowlby One, Bowlby One SC (fat poster face), Tienne (serif), Monoton (a multiline face in the style of Koch's Prisma, 1931), Sancreek (emulating an ornamental wood font), Amatic SC (hand-printed poster family), Sancreek (a Tuscan face), Oswald (in the old Alternate Gothic tradition of sans typefaces---a free Google font; CTAN link), Rammetto (based on the Stephenson Blake uppercase display font Basuto, released in 1926), and Michroma (modeled after Microgramma).

Typefaces made in 2012 include Bench Nine (Google Web Fonts: based on old Stephenson Blake typefaces), Oxygen (a sans typeface available from Google Web Fonts; forked in 2016 at Open Font Library as Comme and in 2017 as Oxygen Sans, with two new oblique styles), Oxygen Mono (Google Web Fonts), Norican (free script font at Google Web Fonts based in part on Stephenson Blake's Glenmoy from the 1920s), Cutive (free at Google Web Fonts, based on the IBM typewriter typefaces Executive and Smith-Premier), Pontano Sans (Google Web Fonts: a light basic sans), Trocchi (Google Web Fonts: derived from Nebiolo's Egiziano, and Caslon & Co's Antique No.4 and Ionic No.2), Seymour One (Google Web Fonts: derived from Sigma One), Anaheim (sans, Google Web Fonts), Cutive and Cutive Mono (Google Web Fonts: based on the typewriter typefaces of IBM's Executive and the older Smith-Premier).

Typefaces from 2013: Mondo (sans), Anton (grotesque).

In 2016, Jacques Le Bailly extended Nunito to a full set of weights, and an accompanying regular non-rounded terminal version, Nunito Sans. Another extension of Nunito is Iunito (2019, unknown designer).

In 2020, Jacques Le Bailly, Cereal and Vernon Adams (posthumously) released the sans typeface family Mulish at Google Fonts. Mulish is a minimalist sans, designed for both display and text typography. It was initially drawn in 2011 by Vernon Adams under the name Muli and then refined until 2014. In 2017 the family was updated by Jacques Le Bailly to complete the work started by Vernon after he passed away, in collaboration with his wife Allison, an artist who holds the trademark on the typeface family name. In August 2019, it was updated with a variable font weight axis.

Jeremia Adatte

Lausanne, Switzerland-based type designer. He created Swissa Piccola (2012, an old typewriter font).

In 2014, he designed the multicolor layered typeface Bron and Bron Shadline. Bron is based on Zelek, designed in the early 1970s by Polish type designer Bronislaw Zelek at Mecanorma. This typeface was originally made for dry transfer lettering sheets. It is has been redrawn and refreshed by Adatte. Also in 2014, he created Day and Collins Logotype (2014, based on catchwords and fists fond in a 1910 wood type catalog by Day & Collins, London).

In 2015, he designed Marcel, an angular upright script typeface that was inspired by Jacno (1948) by French type designer Marcel Jacno.

In 2016, Jeremia designed Script Typewriter Rough, which is the very first complete cursive digital typewriter font ever made after the original 1960 Smith-Corona Electra 210 typewriter.

Frank Adebiaye

Velvetyne Type Foundry (or VTF) is the French foundry of Parisian Frank Adebiaye (b. 1982, Versailles). It used to be called Velvetyne TypeForgery because he uses FontForge to design all his free fonts, which come complete with FontForge sources. Originally, it had many free fonts by Frank Adebiaye himself. At some point, it became more of a coop, and started publishing experimental typefaces by several contributors and collaborators. These fonts are reported elsewhere on my pages under the names of their designers.

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.

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."

B. Agaric

Designer of the Agave font between 2013 and 2019. He writes: Agave was an attempt at making a small, monospaced, outline font that would be geometrically regular and simple. The endeavor was motivated by a deep adoration of old-school console bitmap fonts, of Consolas, of Pragmata Pro, as well as a novice's curiosity for typographical design. When it came to establishing a "simple" design scheme, the natural inclination was to separate the glyph design concerns into that of "frame" and "trait". By frame, we refer to the naive geometric extent of a glyph and its parts. And by trait, we mean, for example, the "way" in which a stroke curves, or the relationship between one part of a glyph and another. Adhering to personal tastes, bone-deep laziness, and the quirky spirit of old computer terminal fonts, the delineations of frame and trait amounted to two mathematical patterns: the power of two and the golden ratio. That is of course an understatement. This wonderful font has almost 5000 glyphs, half of them useful icons. To be sure, many of these glyphs were added by Ryan McIntyre in his Nerd Fonts version of Agave in 2020.

Earlier (pixel) fonts by Agaric include Autonoe [autonoe is a fixed-width, 7x14, bold-only, unicode, bitmap typeface] and Ino.

Tim Ahrens

Just Another Foundry (or: JAF34) 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. His typefaces:

  • 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.
  • JAF Mashine (Just Another Foundry (2005). An octagonal / mechanical family.
  • JAF Lapture (2004, Just Another Foundry), A redesign of Albert Kapr's (angular, calligraphic) Leipziger Antiqua of 1971.
  • His MA project in Reading saw the development of Herb (2007), a hookish display face. Herb was extended in 2010 into a full family, which is still genetically linked to blackletters.
  • Facit (2005, a sans family).
  • Zalamander (2006). An angular comic book family.
  • 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.
  • In 2015, Shoko Mugikura and Tim Ahrens revived the squarish blackletter Johannes Type (Johannes Schulz at Genzsch & Heyse, 1933) as JAF Johannes.
  • The sans serif family Linotype Aroma (1999), followed by Linotype Aroma No. 2 (2007).

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.

Author of Size-specific Adjustments to Type Designs: An Investigation of the Principles Guiding the Design of Optical Sizes (2008, Mark Batty Publisher). Technical image from that book.

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.

Vendors of Rotis and typefaces like Rotis: Rotis Sans Serif (Linotype), Rotis Semi Serif (Monotype), Rotis SemiSans (Monotype), Rotis Serif (Monotype), Rotis SansSerif (Adobe), Cutoff Pro (URW++), Rotis Sans Serif (Monotype), Rotis SemiSans (Adobe), Rotis Semi Serif (Adobe), Rotis Serif (Adobe), Diphthong (Diphthong Type Foundry), Cutoff Pro Regular (URW++).

Kris Alans

Designer of the remarkable free display typeface Alanesiana (2017)C: Alanesiana is a font created in accordance with the idea to read the text in a slightly insecure form, and supports exactly 5650 characters. Each character has its own character, looks different from the rest, but all are made in a similar style and have a similar thickness, so the text still looks consistent, making it perfect for longer texts as opposed to many other decorative fonts that tire the reader. What is important Alanesiana supports not only Latin alphabet but also Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, Armenian, Georgian and phonetic and mathematical symbols as well as some emoticons and other symbols, alphabets such as Coptic.

Muhammad Zuhair Albazi

Arabic type foundry. Typefaces include Muhammad Musa Albazi Naskh and Zuhair Albazi Naskh. They specialize in true calligraphic Tatweel typefaces.

Muhammad Zuhair Albazi is based in Lahore, Pakistan. He made the 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.

In 2017, he published Omar Naskh and writes: Omar Naskh is an amazing Naskh font having full Unicode support for Arabic script till Unicode version 9.0. The font covers all the languages of Arabic Script like Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Pashto, Sindhi, Saraiki, Kazakh, Uyghur, Punjabi, Khowar (Chitrali), Malay (Jawi), Balochi, Brahui, Kurdi (Kurdish), Kashmiri (Koshur), Kirghiz, Ozbek, Turkmen and Gawri (Kalami).

Josef Albers

German-born designer (b. Bottrop, 1888, d. New Haven, CT, 1976) associated with the Bauhaus School that made artistic ripples from 1919-1933. He joined the faculty of Weimar Bauhaus in 1922 as a stained glass maker, and became professor there from 1925 until Bauhaus closed in 1933 under Nazi pressure. He emigrated immediately to the United States where he became head of a new art school, Black Mountain College, in North Carolina. In 1950, he left North Carolina to become head of the Department of Design at Yale University until his retirement in 1958. Albers is best remembered for his work as an abstract painter and theorist. The Josef Albers papers and documents (from 1929 until 1970) were donated by the artist to the Smithsonian Institution's Archives of American Art in 1969 and 1970. His typefaces:

  • Display (1923).
  • Schablonenschrift (1923-1926). This is one of a series of stencil typefaces Albers designed while teaching at the Dessau Bauhaus.
  • 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).
  • Kombinationsschrift auf Glas (1928-1931; combine a few elements). This was revived as 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 typefaces in the style of Kombinationsschrift piano key fonts.

Digital descendants of Albers's work include ThM Architype Albers (2013, Thijs Mertens), Architype Albers (Freda Sack and David Quay of The Foundry, 1997), P22 Albers (P22), Futura Black (Bitstream), Alber New (2010, Chris Dickinson at Moretype), Concreta (Tony de Marco and Niko Fernandez, 2011, at Just in Type), Modernist Stencil (Keith Bates, 2009, at K-Type), Sessions (John Skelton, 2009, at Afrojet), Idiom (Mike Jarboe, 2010, at Reserves), Gridiot (2003-2011, Peter Bain), Plaster (Eben Sorkin, 2011), Slink (Gene Buban, 2009), Albers (Crissov, 2009), Albers Numerals (2015, Tomek Zastawny), Duo (Omer Chafai), Rigid (Marta Cerda Alimbau, 2010), Albers Moiré (Nick Shea), Little Tittle (Michael Blair, 2012), Tp Floral (Two Points, 2006), Decade (Robert Holmkvist, 2015), Bauhaus Typography Experiment (Jonathan Kevin William Holburn, 2014), and Modular Alphabet (Isa Lloret, 2015).

Osman Nuri Alkan

Gumushane, Turkey, and Gothenburg, Sweden-based designer of fonts developed based on old European runic inscriptions, old Asian runic inscriptions, old Hungarian runic inscriptions, runic inscriptions found in Africa, and italic inscriptions such as Etruscan and Iberian. Typefaces from 2022: Ongunkan All Runic Unicode A (a major font that covers Latin, Old Hungarian, Old Turkic, Old Italic, runic, Tifinagh, Lycian, Lydian, Carian, Phoenician, Cypriot, Ogham, Old South Arabian, Old North Arabian, Old Persian, and Ugaritic), Ongunkan Phrygian, Ongunkan Armanen Runes (a series of 18 runes, closely based on the historical Younger Futhark, introduced by Austrian mysticist and Germanic revivalist Guido von List in his Das Geheimnis der Runen, published as a periodical article in 1906, and as a standalone publication in 1908), Ongunkan Danish Futhark (he explains: Prior to 500 AD the 24-rune Elder Futhark was used in Denmark. From 500 AD to 800 AD there were many transitional futharks, reflecting a change from the 24-rune Futhark to the 16-rune Futharks. By the end of this period, the 24-rune Futhark went completely out of use and the 16-rune Futharks had prevailed.), Ongunkan Gothenburg Futhark Swe (based on the 26-letter Bohuslän runes, which are used in the west coast area), Ongunkan Latin Space, Ongunkan Latin Techno, Ongunkan Norwegian Futhark (he explains: The oldest runes discovered in Norway date from 400 AD. They were based upon the 24-rune Elder Futhark of Germanic origin. Two of the runes in the Elder Futhark, Pertra and Eoh, have never been found in any Norwegian rune text. From 550 AD to 700 AD there was a transition period between the older 24-rune Futhark and the newer 16-rune Futharks. By the end of this period, the 24-rune Futhark went completely out of use and the 16-rune Futharks had prevailed. About 900 AD, the Shorttwiggs-runes were introduced from Sweden. Shortly thereafter, from 1000 AD, Futharks with more than 16 runes became more prevalent, as these were more consistent with the Latin alphabet. These types of runes were used in Norway up to 1800 AD), Ongunkan Anglo Saxon Spirit, Ongunkan Younger Futhark One, Ongunkan Younger Futhark (he explains: The Younger Futhark, also called Scandinavian runes, is a runic alphabet and a reduced form of the Elder Futhark, with only 16 characters, in use from about the 9th century, after a transitional period during the 7th and 8th centuries. The reduction, somewhat paradoxically, happened at the same time as phonetic changes that led to a greater number of different phonemes in the spoken language, when Proto-Norse evolved into Old Norse. Also, the writing custom avoided carving the same rune consecutively for the same sound, so the spoken distinction between long and short vowels was lost in writing. Thus, the language included distinct sounds and minimal pairs that were written the same. The Younger Futhark is divided into long-branch (Danish) and short-twig (Swedish and Norwegian) runes; in the 10th century, it was further expanded by the "Hälsinge Runes" or staveless runes. The lifetime of the Younger Futhark corresponds roughly to the Viking Age. Their use declined after the Christianization of Scandinavia; most writing in Scandinavia from the 12th century was in the Latin alphabet, but the runic scripts survived in marginal use in the form of the medieval runes (in use ca. 1100-1500) and the Latinised Dalecarlian runes (ca. 1500-1910)), Ongunkan Fantastic Latin, Ongunkan Modern Latin, Ongunkan Sweden Futhark, Ongunkan Sweden Dalecarlian Run (a late version of the runic script that was in use in the Swedish province of Dalarna until the 20th century), Ongunkan Sweden Dalecarlian Run, Ongunkan Old Turkic Yenisei (based on the Yenisei inscriptions, which consist of a total of 158 Turkish inscriptions, kurgans (graves) and rock stones that have been found along the Yenisei river, which passes through the Khakasya, Tuva and Altai autonomous republics in Russia. The inscriptions were written with Turkish stamps, also known as the Orkhon Alphabet), Ongunkan Old Turkic Arrival (based on an alien language in the science fiction movie called Arrival), Ongunkan Old Turkic Predator (old Turksih runic; based on alien script from the Fantastic Predator movie), Ongunkan Runic Predator (runic; based on alien script from the Fantastic Predator movie), Ongunkan Runic, Ongunkan Greek Script, Ongunkan Karamanli Turkic Scrip (based on the Greek alphabet used by the Karamanli Turks (who are Orthodox Christians) and adapted to Turkish), Ongunkan Kensington Runestone (a rune-covered slab of brownstone that was claimed to have been discovered in central Minnesota in the United States in 1898; probably a hoax perpetrated by its discoverer, Olof Öhman), Ongunkan Old Hungarian Runic (used in parts of Transylvania until the 1850s; banned by Istvan, the first Christian king of the Hungarians (Szekel)), Ongunkan Rosetta Stone (ancient Greek as seen on Egypt's rosetta stone), Ongunkan Tifinagh Berber.
