21 Lab
[Rodrigo Alberto Cavazos Rodriguez]

Design studio in Monterrey, Mexico, run by Rodrigo Alberto Cavazos Rodríguez.

It offers Nieu Font (2012, organic), Free Font 21 (2010, a free paperclip face) and the counterless gometric alphabet Navia (2012).

Clasia (2013) is an interesting experimental sans typeface. It looks geometric, but has original stroke cuts meant for legibility. In its presentation, the designer works with subtly shaded parts where strokes join---I guess that is also for enhanced legibility.

Antonio de Espinosa

Spanish type founder based in Sevilla, who emigrated to Mexico and is thought to be the first Spanish typographer in North America. He created a large number of Gothic, roman and cursive faces. He printed mainly religious oeuvres, from about 1560 until about 1571. Cristóbal Henestrosa, who wrote Espinosa. Rescate de una tipografía novohispana (México, Designio, 2005), writes: He worked with Juan Pablos (first printer on the American continent) since 1551 and he began his independent job in 1559, with Maturino Gilberti's Grammatica Maturini and finalized with the second edition of Graduale Dominicale in 1576, the year he died. It is not completely clear that he cut typography, althought there is a contract (1550) in which he promises to cut type for Juan Pablos, but he is the second printer in all of America and the first one who preferred roman and cursive type over the gothic.

So he came in, and went "Number Two" in my bathroom without flushing, after that, he headed out to the kitchen to hang out and stuff. So I go into my bathroom and see these unflushed turds in my toilet. I go up to Hrant and say "Excuse me, Hrant, you left your turds in my toilet." His response involved handing me a plunger and adding "This should fix it." And that was it. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Boudewijn Ietswaart

Dutch letterer about whom Jan Middendorp will speak at ATypI 2009 in Mexico City. Middendorp writes: During my research for Dutch Type, I chanced upon the work of Boudewijn Ietswaart, an extremely talented lettering artist and illustrator whose work is virtually unknown in his native Netherlands. Further research led to my locating him - now retired - in Amsterdam, where I interviewed him and made photographic reproductions of some of his work. Ietswaart spent most of his professional life as a graphic designer in Mexico, Venezuela and Barcelona and only did a small portion of his work for Dutch publishers. He later became a scientific illustrator and abandoned lettering altogether. Ietswaart was extremely prolific during his two years in Mexico, c. 1960, where he had gone to assist UNESCO collaborator Alexander Stols - a well-known publisher - as the typographic specialist. After I mentioned Ietswaart to my contacts of the Círculo de Tipógrafos in Mexico last year, they researched what information they could find, and also located many of Ietswaart's works in antiquarian bookshops. They soon warmed up to the idea of reviving some of his alphabets as fonts, and present the work during ATypI 09 in the context of the cultural climate of the era. At the Flickr site documenting his years in Mexico in 1961 and 1962, we read: In 1961 a young Dutch designer, Boudewijn Ietswaart, arrived in Mexico City. Schooled in hand lettering and a master of many graphic techniques Ietswaart came to the effervescent capital of Mexico as an assistant to Alexandre Stols, himself a famous book designer who had been sent abroad as part of a UNESCO. Ietswaart was enormously productive these two years as a designer of book covers for the Fondo de Cultura Económica and the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM). A list of his work for the UNESCO spans more than 50 titles. Ietswaart himself, now 72, is modest about his efforts, saying he was "allowed to do the titles" and noting the pretentiousness of being sent on an aid mission to a publishing company of international stature such as the Fondo de Cultura Económica. Nonetheless he took seriously his goal of making the presentation of mass produced books on academic subjects more accessible. A revision of his work gleaned from Mexico City's second-hand bookshops displays a playful, fresh and elegant style to the layman's eye. For an expert on hand lettering there is more to be seen in Ietswaart's designs. Jan Middendorp, author of Dutch Type, the canonical book on the history of typography in the Netherlands, titles one chapter the "Unrecognized brilliance of Boudewijn Ietswaart" giving Ietswaart pride of place among Holland's great designers of letters. Nonetheless Ietswaart is still virtually unknown, largely because he was working as a freelance designer outside of his own country. This period was also a golden age in Mexican letters. Gabriel Garcia Marquez moved to Mexico in 1961 and Nobel Prize winners Octavio Paz and Carlos Fuentes were regulars in the scene around the great Fondo de Cultura Económica. Artists such as the Catalan Vicente Rojo worked in the design section. And Mexico in general was at the peak of its 20th century cultural glory. After his two-year stay in Mexico Ietswaart moved to Spain and Venezuela, eventually leaving book design and moving into scientific illustration. He is now retired and living in Amsterdam. In 2008 during its investigations of Dutch typography the Círculo de Tipógrafosógrafos, a group of young designers in Mexico City, stumbled on the work of Ietswaart by way of Middendorp. Inspired by the designs of an unknown foreigner in the golden age of their country's letters the Circulo de Tipógrafos has undertaken a project to convert his hand lettered alphabets into digital fonts compatible with computers anywhere, thereby commemorating the work of Ietswaart and this particularly important period in Mexican cultural history. The aim of the Circulo de Tipógrafos is to present these fonts during the yearly congress of the Association Typographique International, the organisation of the international type community, which is to be held towards the end of October 2009 in Mexico City. This presentation is to be accompanied by an exposition to be held in a major venue in the city's historical centre.

Boudewijn Ietswaart passed away on December 23, 2010.

Dick Pape

Dick Pape (Dallas, TX) is digitizing the Dan Solo books one by one, and has digitized many other sources of alphabets and images. He started making fonts ca. 2007. In 2009, he was doing Solo's art deco tome. He is on several font-making forums such as High Logic, and is interested in revivals. "Toto" writes: Dick Pape made hundreds of fonts and here are the links to most of his fonts. This list has not been updated and later additions are found in Rapidshare folders. I've missed some and some links had been deleted by Rapidshare during its migration from .de to .com. Some have also been sent directly to the group, like those based on Mada's alphas. It is hard to tell whether the font has been made by Dick Pape. The only indication that he created the fonts is that the font have "DP" as font vendor and/or has "Digitized by TTD" in the trademark field. Both are not present in some of his fonts. He seems not to want to take credit. He is just a guy who wants to digitize anything he likes. In 2010, he made Bultaco, based on the logotype for Bultaco Motorcycles---see Freehostia.

    Edgar Olivas

    Creator of a beautul Day of the Dead postcard series in 2009. He says: The Tzompantli, or wall of skulls was another element taken from the aztec culture. These racks were built to display the sacrificial victims or those deceased at wars. The grin. In all these characters the grin is related to Mictlantecuhtli’s mocking smile. Some anthropologist say that this enigmatic gesture, depicted in one sculpture, seems to smile or mock ironically of those who face or will face him one day. Three posters were created as well, for silkscreen painting. The skulls in the postcards were designed using an ornamental and illustration style called DIDOQUE, which emulates the baroque ornamentation and is constructed on whole letters and pieces, signs, glyphs of the DIDOT typography. Didoque, is a portmanteau word and concept result of the words Didot and Baroque.

    Fontaste
    [Miguel Reyes]

    Miguel Reyes (b. 1984) is a graphic and type designer from Puebla, Mexico, who studied at Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla. He obtained a Masters in Type Design from Centro de Estudios Gestalt Veracruz. Since 2010, he cooperates with Typerepublic in Barcelona. Founder of Fontaste. Graduate of the TypeMedia program at KABK Den Haag in 2012.

    His graduation project consisted of two display faces, Naila (a wedge serif) and Rocco (a fattish round sans face).

    Typefaces at Fontaste, ca. 2013: Plastilina (+Display, +Deco: signpainter family), Sancho, Candela (signpainter script).

    He joined Commercial Type in New York City in 2013. Miguel's grandest achievement to date is Duplicate (2013, Commercial Type: with Christian Schwartz), a typeface family that comes in three substyles, Slab, Sans and Ionic. Commercial Type writes: Christian Schwartz wanted to see what the result would be if he tried to draw Antique Olive from memory. He was curious whether this could be a route to something that felt contemporary and original, or if the result would be a pale imitation of the original. Most of all, he wanted to see what he would remember correctly and what he would get wrong, and what relationship this would create between the inspiration and the result. Though it shares some structural similarities with Antique Olive and a handful of details, like the shape of the lowercase a, Duplicate Sans is not a revival, but rather a thoroughly contemporary homage to Excoffon. Duplicate Sans was finally finished at the request of Florian Bachleda for his 2011 redesign of Fast Company. Bachleda wanted a slab companion for the sans, so Schwartz decided to take the most direct route: he simply added slabs to the sans in a straightforward manner, doing as little as he could to alter the proportions, contrast, and stylistic details in the process. The bracketed serifs and ball terminals that define the Clarendon genre (also known as Ionic) first emerged in Britain in the middle of the 19th century. While combining these structures with a contemporary interpretation of a mid-20th century French sans serif seems counterintutive, the final result feels suprisingly natural. The romans are a collaboration between Christian Schwartz and Miguel Reyes, but the italic is fully Reyes's creation, departing from the sloped romans seen in Duplicate Sans and Slab with a true cursive. Mark Porter and Simon Esterson were the first to use the family, in their 2013 redesign of the Neue Züricher Zeitung am Sonntag. Because the Ionic genre has long been a common choice for text in newspapers, Duplicate Ionic is a natural choice for long texts.

    Early in 2014, Christian Schwartz, Paul Barnes and Miguel Reyes joined forces to create the manly didone typeface family Caponi, which is based on the early work of Bodoni, who was at that time greatly influenced by the roccoco style of Pierre Simon Fournier. It is named after Amid Capeci, who commissioned it in 2010 for his twentieth anniversary revamp of Entertainment Weekly. Caponi comes in Display, Slab and Text subfamilies. [Google] [More]  ⦿

    Pampa Type
    [Alejandro Lo Celso]

    Alejandro Lo Celso, a graphic and type designer born in 1970 in Córdoba, Argentina, was art director at several publishing media in Buenos Aires. He has written several articles for typo magazines, and taught typography at the University of Buenos Aires. In 2000 he completed his MA in Typeface Design at the University of Reading (UK). In 2001, he obtained a post-diploma at the Atelier National de Recherche Typographique, Nancy (France). He teaches typography at the Universidad de las Americas in Puebla, Mexico, and at Centro Gestalt in Veracruz, and is Principal of Pampa Type in Mexico City. Typefaces:

    • Rayuela (2001). Rayuela comes in these weights: Rayuela-Italica, Rayuela, RayuelaChocolate, RayuelaLUZ, RayuelaLigera-Italica, RayuelaLigera, RayuelaLigeraVersalitas, RayuelaMiscelaneas, RayuelaVersalitas. Rayuela (hopscotch) was a winner at the Bukva:raz type design competition held by the ATypI, Moscow 2001. Rayuela Chocolate 2.0 (2005) won at TDC2 2006.
    • Quimera (2002, +Quimera Compacta). Quimera is a display family that contains an admirable heavy condensed sans, Quimera Compacta.
    • Lo Celso's typeface Borges won a Judge's award at the 2002 Morisawa Competition. An 11-style version of this text family is at T26 (2007). [Note: Ulay&Ulay have had a font called Borges since the 1990s, so I don't understand how this name can legally stand.]
    • Arlt (2005) won an award at the Creative Review Type Competition 2005. It comes in many styles such as Arlt Blanca, Gris, Negra, Super Negra, Titulo Blanca, Titulo Negra, Titulo Hueca, Deco 1, Deco 2, as well as a number of grunge styles called Arlt 7 Locos (T-26, 2008): Amor Brujo, Astrologo, Buscador de Oro, Erdosain, Jorobadito, Juquete Rabioso, Rufian Melancolico. Lo Celso writes: Arlt is a contemporary interpretation of the alphabet which finds inspiration in some classic sources. The italics are linked to the glamorous, mannerist typography of 17th century Baroque (Dutch designer Christoffel van Dijck, Hungarian printer Miklós Kis). While the romans are a new attempt at capturing the warmth and vehemence of Expressionism. This style may be traced back to the 18th century: the singular work of German punchcutter Christian Zinck, and later to some 20th century East European type designers such as Preissig, Dyrynk, Menhart, and Frantisek Storm, probably today's finest representative. Now available from MyFonts, Arlt is indeed a thing of beauty.
    • In 2008-2009, Lo Celso, François Chastanet, Géraud Souliol and Laure Afchain cooperated on the identity type for the city of Toulouse, called Garonne. Along the lines of Arlt, Garonne is an almost didone face in romain, italique, petite caps, titrage caps and titrage étroite.
    • Perec (+Perec Blanca, +Perec Negra). Winner at Tipos Latinos 2010.
    • Margarita. Winner at Tipos Latinos 2010, a great celebration of Bodoni's titling faces, named after his widow, Margherita; with an Open style called Luce.

    • A complete list of all Philip Bouwsma fonts on the Creative Alliance v9.0 CD: Alligators (1994, letters made up from alligators), Aqua Life (2005), Carmela, Clemente Rotunda, Corvallis, Corvallis Oblique, Corvallis Sans, Corvallis Sans Oblique, Dorothea, Fransesca Gothic (1996, Lombardic / blackletter style), Hrabanus, Lexie's Animals, Lombardic Capitals (1994, Monotype), Ludovico Smooth, Ludovico Smooth Flourishes, Mariposa, Mariposa Bold, Mariposa Book, Mariposa BookItalic, Mariposa Black, Mariposa Medium, Mariposa Sans, Mariposa Sans Bold, Mariposa Sans Book, Mariposa Sans BookItalic, Mariposa Sans Black, Mariposa Sans Medium, Mexican Birds, Polenta Black Italic, Polenta Italic, Ter Gast, Ter Gast Alternates, Wolfdance, Schildersblad, Tresillian.
    • From 2005 on, he started publishing his typefaces at Canada Type. There he published a fantastic calligraphic blackletter-inspired family, Torquemada, and Bouwsma Script (2006), an extension of his 1994 handwriting face. Still at Canada Type, he updated Alexia in 2006, and added Luminari in 2008, a Lombardic / uncial font influenced by the prolific humanist Poggio Bracciolini from the early fifteenth century (+Greek, +Cyrillic, +Celtic). The 8-style Bouwsma Text (2008, Canada Type) is a full-bodied truly "roman" family well worth visiting. The 5-style Mirabel calligraphic script family Mirabel (2008, Canada Type) is based on the handwriting of Beverly Bouwsma (Philip's mother), which she developed in the 1930s. Styx (2008, Canada Type) is a 4-font connected calligraphic script family with rough and smooth variations. But his grandest achievement is perhaps Maestro (2009), a 40 style chancery family, in 2 weights each, with 3350 characters per font, codesigned with Patrick Griffin at Canada Type. Still in 2009, he designed the 6-style calligraphic family Tupelo. In 2010, his main contribution, with Patrick Griffin, is the calligraphic uncial family Testament II. His Lorenzo family (2010, Canada Type) is has both chancery and calligraphic styles. In 2011, he published the Carolingian script family Symposium Pro, with the help of Patrick Griffin.

    Tania Alvarez Zaldivar

    Talented Mexican graphic designer and digital artist (b. 1985) who was based in Montreal but is now back in Mexico City. She pushed the boundaries of experimental typography with creations like Fabric Type (2009), which was developed at Concordia University in Montreal, where she obtained a BFA in design in 2009. She continued her studies at EINA in Barcelona, graduating in 2010.

    Her early typefaces: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | Sukkhos (Mr. Softie) | Overseas Type (2010, done at Concordia University in Montreal) | Moda Barcelona (2011).

    In 2010, she designed the map face Cartola, which grew out of a project at EINA in Barcelona and is based on Mrs Eaves. Mar 34 (2011) designed exclusively for the identity of Estruch, a restaurant located at the Plaza of the Cathedral in downtown Barcelona. The project was made in collaboration with Raquel Quevedo, who used the typeface for designing a graphic system for the identity. Both the face&the graphic design are based on postal service paraphernalia. Momo (2011) is a typeface that is developed based on the concepts of dada by El Lissitsky&Kurt Schwitters.

    In 2013, she graduated from the Type & Media program at KABK in Den Haag with a text typeface called Botanica that is geared towards scientific publications.

    Terry Wüdenbachs

    Snowboarder from Liechtenstein, who designs typefaces at P22 and its descendant foundries such as HWT. The list:

    • His first font was the whacky P22 Catalan (2003), which was inspired by Antonio Gaudi, Joán Miro and Salvador Dali.
    • In 2004, he created BlancoNeg, Mexican Relics (100 dingbats from pre-Columbian Mexico), Sniplash (a 60s cartoon face) and Durer Caps (after Dü'rer's 1525 original).
    • In 2005, he added P22 Mystic (art nouveau).
    • The curly P22 Festiva and P22 Huffer Pro (comic book face) followed in 2009.
    • In 2010, he designed two revivals of Nebiolo work, P22 Nebiornaments, and P22 Slogan (after the 1957 brush font by the same name by Aldo Novarese).
    • In 2012, he created P22 CoDependent, a set of two art deco typefaces that revive of the Independant typeface from 1930 created by Dutch designer Johannes Nicolaas Coenraad Collette along with Jos Dufour from Belgium.
    • In 2012, Terry joined forces with Richard Kegler and published the multilayered Western circus font HWT American Chromatic at Hamilton Wood Type. American Chromatic was originally created by Wm. H. Page & Co. circa 1857-59.

      In 2013, he designed HWT Arabesque for Hamilton Wood Type. This art nouveau / psychedelic typeface was originally produced by the Morgans & Wilcox Co. and the Wm. Page Co. as almost identical designs. Both manufacturers were acquired by Hamilton and offered briefly by Hamilton as design #618. William Page Arabesque was first shown in 1872 and after the Page purchase by Hamilton in 1891, it was renamed to No. 618. Similarly, the Morgan & wilcox arabesque was first shown in 1884, but after morgan's purcghase by hamilton, it was renamed to No. 3189.

    [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.

It is based on 1927 Rudolf Koch's Kabel, 1930 Rudolf Wolf's Memphis, 1927 Paul Renner's Futura.

    Typefaces from 2012: Antic Slab (Google Web Fonts: designed for use in the headlines of newspapers and magazines), Antic Didone (Google Web Fonts).
