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.

At TypeCon 2003, he told this dream about Hrant Papazian, I quote: I dreamt that Hrant came to my house, the weird thing is that it was his typophile picture only (since that is as far as I know what Hrant looks like). 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 spoke 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.

Thev award-winning font family by Circulo de Tipógrafos is called Balduina, and was published in 2010. Boudewijn Ietswaart passed away on December 23, 2010. Klingspor link. [Google] [More]  ⦿

He is an alumnus of Milton Glaser's Summer Program and a founding member of The Children's Publishing Design Forum. A designer, artist and illustrator recognized by many awards, Brian designed these art-historical typefaces in 2014:

  • Dada Tank: A condensed, rounded display typeface with a curious combination of thick and thin strokes designed. The alphabet was extrapolated from the title lettering on Dragan Aleksic's International Dada review (1922).
  • Irradiador: The heavy rectangle almost constructivist alphabets were extrapolated from the title lettering of Fermín Revueltas's 1923 journal which was a major early voice for the Mexican avant-garde movement called Estridentismo. It features two full alphabets of uppercase characters and common accents with eighteen ligatures between them.
  • Say So: Created in response to Robert Rauschenberg's This is a portrait of Iris Clert if I say so. It features full sets of uppercase and lowercase characters, numbers, punctuation, and symbols. All of the characters are a portrait of Iris Clert.

In 2018, Brian LaRossa and Erica Carras co-designed the Bauhaus typeface Staatliches. The alphabet revives and extends Herbert Bayer's title lettering on the cover of the first Bauhaus exhibition catalogue from 1923. It features full sets of capitals, numbers, punctuation, and symbols, in addition to alternate widths, discretionary ligatures, and common Latin accents. Staatliches is free at Google Fonts.

  • Barronegro (2009) is a text family on which he has been working between 2006 and 2009. Barronegro is based on the cultural heritage of Oaxaca, as found on local posters, menus, shops, clothing, and art.
  • Miniblock (2009, by Manuel Guerrero) is created to stack letters next to each other to look like labyrinths. It won an award in the Tipos Latinos 2008 competition for best text family.
  • Optica (2008, Manolo Guerrero) is a tribute to Colombian artist Omar Rayo's optical art.
  • Block02 (2009, Manolo Guerrero) is a FontStruct font that is part pixelized, part stencil.
  • Optica (2008, Manolo G) is an optical experiment.
  • Chicha (2012, Diego Sanz) is based on Peruvian market signs.
  • Quincha (2009, Diego Sanz) is the quechua word for stone wall. Letters can be packed together in a way that reminds one of ancient Inca art.
  • Casiopea (2010) is a corporate or signage type family that comes in six weights including Bold and Thin.

  • Speaker at ATypI 2018 in Antwerp (together with Eloise Parrack) on a revival project summarized as follows: In November 2017 an international cohort on the Expert Class in Type Design, based in the UNESCO world heritage site of the Museum Plantin-Moretus, embarked upon a collaborative project to research and revive a Renaissance-era typeface of the Flemish punchcutter Hendrik van den Keere from the collection of Christophe Plantin. Comparing Van den Keere's well-known Real Romain (1575) and Ascendonica Romain (1577) with his Small Pica Roman (1578), and investigating the patterning, proportions, and details, our research led to the design of a revival using Small Pica Roman at 9-point Didot size as a departure. Evaluations of the approaches of working in metal and standardization in type design at different optical sizes were considered, and were contrasted to methods and tools of digital typeface design today. The unique and rich historic archive of punches, matrices, and printed materials provided an exciting basis for our research, leading to some surprising discoveries counter to our expectations and to accepted theories found in many typography and type design texts. This project provoked a wide range of interpretations, approaches, and opinions about how to create a contemporary usable digital typeface, whilst honouring and imagining the intentions of Van den Keere five centuries past.

[Damian Guerrero]

Damian Guerrero Cortes is the Mexico City-based designer of the 48-style multi-texture layerable pixel-based font families Dance Floor (2019) and 2nd Dance Floor (2020).

Damian's take on Bookman is Bookseller Bk (2020): it has straightened serifs on the ascenders and features some ball terminals to distinguish it from the original Bookman. Damian's italic is totally different though. Damian says that Bookseller is based on a typeface found in a French book published between 1882 and 1893 and cites Didot, Scotch Roman and Clarendon as distant references. Bookseller covers Greek and Cyrillic and shows sturdiness for small print. See also Bookseller Cp (2020: a 12-style Scotch family).

Typefaces from 2021: Sweetener (a sugary script), MultiType Brick, MultiType Rows (34 fonts with horizontal stripes as in retro video games), MultiType Brick (brick-textured), MultiType Glitch, MultiType Gamer (a 24-style retro gaming font family), MultiType Pixel. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

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.

    His titling typeface Royal Charter won an award at Tipos Latinos 2018. This is a digital revival by Cristobal Henestrosa based on an experimental typeface named Charter, designed yet never fully finished by William Addison Dwiggins. It is an upright italic, unconnected script typeface, whose main features are a pronounced contrast, condensed forms and exaggerated ascenders. While Dwiggins worked on this project from 1937 to 1955, he only completed the lowercase and a few other characters. However, it was used to set a specimen in 1942 and a short novel in 1946. The sources that Cristobal used for Royal Charter (and later, Mon Nicolette) were the original sketches by WAD as well as printing trails kept at the Boston Public Library, and a copy of the 1946 edition of The Song-Story of Aucassin and Nicolette. This gorgeous typeface can be used successfully in headlines, subheads and short passages of text from 12 points onwards. It was published in 2020 as Mon Nicolette at Sudtipos, where the help of Oscar Yanez was acknowledged.

She wrote about Cardone Serif: Cardone is a contemporary typeface that has its roots in the early modern model of Scottish faces, a model that would be later called Scotch Roman. It explores the right balance between elegance and a studier feel through the combination of pronounced curves, abrupt lines and vertical stress. Later, she added Cardone Grotesk Regular and Black. In 2021, Cardone was published by 205TF.

    Presently, she collaborates with Bureau 205 and 205TF. [Google] [More]  ⦿

This oscillates between rigid characters pertaining to a modernist inspiration, and others of generous and peaceful shapes that seek to help the text and the reader breathe.

    [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 typefaces, 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. Duplicate Ionic won an award at TDC 2014.

    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.

    Gabriello (2015) is a soccer shirt font designed by Paul Barnes and Miguel Reyes: Inspired by brush lettering, Gabriello was commissioned by Puma. First used by their sponsored teams at the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations, it was later used at that year's World Cup, held in South Africa. It was used on the kits worn by Algeria, Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire, and Ghana.

    Marian Text (2014-2016) is a grand collection of ultra thin typefaces designed at Commercial Type by Miguel Reyes, Sandra Carrera, and Paul Barnes. Marian Text 1554 depicts the old style of Garamond & Granjon; John Baskerville's transitional form becomes Marian Text 1757; the modern of Bodoni, with swash capitals and all, becomes Marian Text 1800, and the early Moderns of the Scottish foundries of Alexander Wilson & Son of Glasgow, and William Miller of Edinburgh, become Marian Text 1812. And like the original, a black letter: Marian Text Black, referencing the forms of Hendrik van den Keere.

    In 2015, Miguel Reyes designed the high-contrast sharp-edged yet curvy typeface family Canela at Commercial Type. It was followed in 2018 by Canela Condensed and Canela Text.

    Ayer is an elegant condensed display typeface designed by Miguel Reyes between 2016 and 2019 for the fashion magazine W. Ayer (Commercial Type) was designed to be malleable and to assert a strong personality at a variety of scales. Commercial Type writes: Ayer Poster has the extremely high contrast that is typical of a fashion typeface and features four different italic styles: the workmanlike italic featured in all optical sizes, a chaotically beautiful Cursive with a full complement of swash capitals, a sharply stylish Angular, and Miguel's decidedly non-traditional interpretation of the staid Blackletter genre. In comparison, Ayer also has high contrast, though less so than the Poster. Finally, Ayer Deck is a low-contrast sans serif with gentle flaring.

    Co-designer in 2019 with Paul Barnes of the fat face Isambard: The boldest moderns were given the name fat face and they pushed the serif letterform to its extremes. With exaggerated features of high contrast and inflated ball terminals, the fat face was the most radical example of putting as much ink on a page to make the greatest impact at the time. These over-the-top forms make the style not only emphatic, but also joyful with bulbous swash capitals and a wonderfully characterful italic.

    In 2021, he designed the inky script typeface Candy Darling (with Christian Schwartz; commissioned by Richard Turley for Interview magazine) and Canela Blackletter (inspired by the long tradition of blacketter in Mexico) at Commercial Type.

    In 2022, he designed the italic script typeface Eugenia at Commercial Type. Its four distinct fonts were derived from the 18th century work of Giambattista Bodoni. Eugenia was drawn to accompany Eugenio Serif, the design created for La Repubblica's weekly women's magazine D. [Google] [More]  ⦿

    Iñigo López Vázquez

    Iñigo López Vázquez is a graphic designer from Puebla, Mexico. As part of his final project at the Rhode Island School of Design, he created Ivrea (2015), which is simultaneously a typeface and a dedicated text editor. It was inspired by Olivetti typewriters---Ivrea is named after the town where Olivetti typewriters were made. During a summer course called Type@Paris (2015), he designed Mazarine under the guidance of Jean François Porchez. It was intended for use in newspapers, with a large x-height and the sturdyness of classics like Times or Georgia: The main purpose of the typeface was to create a readable roman with a crisp texture. In order to do that, Mazarine draws its bowl terminals & tails from xixth century Scotch typefaces. The building blocks of the typeface are straight lines but also perfect circles which can be seen on the way the bowls are constructed. This rationalization of the Renaissance letterforms makes the shapes feel a lot more fresh. Labanotation (2015) is a dingbat font created after the dancing notation invented by Rudolph Laban to record movement in dance. [Google] [More]  ⦿

    • Wordless Script (2019, at Sudtipos). A penmanship script with weathered outlines. Sudtipos writes: Wordless Script is the font of choice for writing those things that go beyond words. Based on the connected-scripts of the late 18th-century England, this typeface preserves the irregular finish and stroke gestures of the pointed nib. It is, so to speak, a personal rendition of the English roundhand as originally executed with the bird's quill. Imbued with a rococo, neoclassic, romantic spirit, Wordless Script radiates the gallantry of a time when the celebrated douceur de vivre that Talleyrand was so fond of was still alive and well; echoes of which still haunt us in our eclectic 21st-century, that now has once again come to appreciate again these magnificent styles of old. Wordless Script [...] is meant to be read with the eyes only or to be whispered into someone's ear.

  • Lance Wyman

    Designer who became famous because of his work on wayfinding and branding projects, and his designs for massive urban systems, airports, zoos, and museums. Over the course of his career he has created systems for the Mexico 1968 Olympics, Mexico City Metro, National Zoo, American Museum of Natural History, New York Penn Station, National Mall, Minnesota Zoo and Jeddah International Airport. Wyman taught corporate and wayfinding design at Parsons the New School for Design in New York for forty years, from 1973 until 2013. He lectures internationally and is still designing. The first compendium of his work, Lance Wyman: The Monograph, was published by Unit Editions.

    Creator of the identity, logos, fonts, and design elements for the Mexico 1968 Olympics in the op-art or prismatic style. The multilined font, called Mexico Olympic, is due to Photoscript Ltd (I think). A digital font inspired by it is Olio Inline (2012, Max Little). For a free version, see Steve Harrison's Sixty Eight and Sixty Eight Plus (2021).

    Wyman, who is a branding specialist based in New York City, is known for his many excellent icons and logos for companies and events. Born in Newark, NJ, he is a graduate of Pratt in Brooklyn with a degree in Industrial Design. He made the Tipo Metro font in 1969 for Mexico City's subway, an adaptation of Eurostile. That font was revived later as Metro DF by Harold Lohner. A pixel version of this (by Kemie, is called Balderas).

    Lance Wyman worked with Rick Banks at F37 Foundry on the design of F37 Wyman (2021), which showcases his famous lettering style that goes back to the 1968 Olympics.

Grand prize winner at Tipos Latinos 2010 for his titling type family Carlota. Other typefaces by him include Aion, Moneda, and Condesa.

The name is in honor to Dorothy Abbe, typographer, puppeter and close friend of William Addison Dwiggins.

    In 2014, he created the curly ronde script typeface Bistro for Gastronomie Magazine.

    He lives in Mexico City and is Design Editor at GEE. Founding member of Círculo de Tipógrafos in Mexico.

    In 2010, Cristobal Henestrosa strated work on Charter, which is based on an experimental typeface named Charter, designed yet never fully finished by William Addison Dwiggins. It is an upright italic, unconnected script typeface, whose main features are a pronounced contrast, condensed forms and exaggerated ascenders. While Dwiggins worked on this project from 1937 to 1955, he only completed the lowercase and a few other characters. However, it was used to set a specimen in 1942 and a short novel in 1946. The sources that Cristobal used for Royal Charter (and later, Mon Nicolette) were the original sketches by WAD as well as printing trails kept at the Boston Public Library, and a copy of the 1946 edition of The Song-Story of Aucassin and Nicolette. This gorgeous typeface can be used successfully in headlines, subheads and short passages of text from 12 points onwards. It was published in 2020 as Mon Nicolette at Sudtipos, where the help of Oscar Yanez was acknowledged. Mon Nicolette also comes in a variable format with weight and optical size axes.

    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. As Pampa Type grew, it brought several excellent type designers on board, such as Jorge Iván Moreno Majul and type designers Francisco Gálvez Pizarro, Francis Ramel, and Oscar Yáñez. In 2021, pampa type joined Type Network. His 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). Borges is a text typeface with a natural rhythm and a splended inline style. [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 typeface in romain, italique, petite caps, titrage caps and titrage étroite.
    • Perec (+Perec Blanca, +Perec Negra). Winner at Tipos Latinos 2010. It is partitioned into the subfamilies Perec, Perec Ludique and Perec Lunatique.
    • Margarita. Winner at Tipos Latinos 2010, a great celebration of Bodoni's titling typefaces, named after his widow, Margherita; with an Open style called Luce.
    • Passion One (2011, Alejandro Lo Celso, Google Web Fonts is a powerful heavy sans in the style of Impact.
    • Atahualpa (2017): Inspired in the works of Atahualpa Yupanqui, central figure in Argentinean folk music, Atahualpa is an original type design that goes beyond reverse contrast, interpreting the qualities of a sturdy slab serif style with a delicate sense of drawing. This gives Atahualpa a unique spirit of power and warmth, apt to create gentle reading atmospheres in text as well as persuasive headings, logos, and other display uses. Winner at Tipos Latinos 2018 of the grand prize.
    • Winner at Tipos Latinos 2018 of a type design award for Reforma (2018), a free custom typeface made for the University of Cordoba, Argentina.

    Philip Bouwsma

    Type designer born in Boston in 1948 who created many exquisite designs such as Alexia (1992), Sallando Italic, Dorothea or Cresci Rotunda. His work shows the influence of masters such as Arthur Baker.

    • A list of typefaces done for Agfa (which became Monotype): Alligators (dingbats), Aureus Uncial, Bollatica (a blackletter script), Carmela, Connach (a Gaelic font), Corvallis (1995), Cresci Rotunda (a rotunda), Dorothea, Francesca (1994), Hrabanus (1994, Monotype: Based on the lettering of Hrabanus Maurus, c. 776-856, archbishop of Mainz and author of many commentaries on the scriptures), Lexie's Animals, Ludovico, LudovicoWoodcut, Makondo (tribal glyphs), Mantegna (named after the renaissance era engraver Andrea Mantegna), Mariposa, Mariposa Sans, Mexican Birds, Borders&Symbols, Monmouth (1994, a Lombardic / blackletter face), Neuhengen, Ophelia Italic, Palatino Rotundo, Percival, Poggio Bookhand, Pompeii Capitals, Ramsey (1997, Lombardic face), Sallando Italic, Southwest (dingbats), Synthetica (1996), Thalia Italic, Trieste, van der Hoef Capitals (Monotype, an art deco typeface after 1920 lettering by Dutch artist Christian van der Hoef), and Wolfdance.
    • At Alphabets Inc: Alexia (1992; a broad nib font), Benedict Uncial, BouwsmaScript, Juliana and Weissenau.
    • 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 (1995), 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, Wolftrack, Schildersblad Capitals (Dutch deco, at Monotype), Tresillian Roman, Tresillian Script (1999: a calligraphic script).
    • 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 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 at Canada Type is perhaps Maestro (2009), a 40 style chancery family, in 2 weights each, with 3350 characters per font, co-designed with Patrick Griffin. Still in 2009, he designed the 6-style calligraphic Tupelo family. In 2010, his main contribution, with Patrick Griffin, is the calligraphic uncial 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.

      In 2015, Bouwsma published te calligraphic typeface Lyra, an Italian Renaissance script somewhere between the humanist bookhand and the chancery cursive.

    Romina Hernández

    Or just Ro Hernandez. Mexico City-based designer who studied industrial design and then type design at Centro University. Graduate of the TypeMedia program at the KABK in The Hague in 2017. Her graduation typeface there is Pigeon, a typeface made to help writers working with text: from outlining to drafting, editing, and preparing manuscripts for output. It brings the sketchiness of handwriting and the simplicity of typewriters to digital text editing. Despite its proportional design, it has a monospaced feel. It is widely spaced, airy and charmingly awkward, but with a smooth texture and no ugly black spots.. At Future Fonts, we find these typefaces:

    • Pigeonette. Ro says: Pigeonette, pronounced in faux French, is a typeface made for writers working with words. It combines the sketchiness of handwriting with the open spacing and charmingly awkward proportions of typewriters.
    • Puffling (2019). Ro writes: Puffling brings these warm handmade qualities from carving to digital type and variable fonts. For now, we start out small with a single dark weight and a variable width axis going from Extra Condensed to Extended but the family will grow to cover many more weights and support a large character set.

    Stridentism / Estridentismo

    Stridentism (Spanish: Estridentismo) was an artistic and multidisciplinary avant-garde movement, founded in Mexico City by Manuel Maples Arce (1898-1981) at the end of 1921 but formally developed in Xalapa where all the founders moved after the University of Veracruz granted its support for the movement. Stridentism shares some characteristics with Cubism, Dadaism, Futurism and Ultraism, but it developed a specific social dimension, taken from Mexican Revolution, and a concern for action and its own present. The movement was active from 1921 until 1927. It included the visual artists Ramón Alva de la Canal, Leopoldo Méndez, Fermín Revueltas and Lola Cueto. [Google] [More]  ⦿

    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 Morgans & Wilcox Arabesque was first shown in 1884, but after Morgan's purchase by Hamilton, it was renamed to No. 3189.
    • HWT Showcard Script (2020). Described as an extended script type that lends itself well to fine fashion, ready-to-wear and all quality merchandise in a marketing blurb that pitched Beaufont by the Morgan Sign Machine Company of Chicago for their Line-O-Scribe sign printing system. This advertising script font was originally manufactured exclusively for Morgan Sign under license by the Hamilton Wood Type Manufacturing Company.
    • In 2020, the Bixlers and P22 jointly published the ornamental typeface LTC Bixler Ornaments. The digital version is due to Terry Wudenbachs.
    • P22 Snowflakes (2020). By Richard Kegler and Terry Wüdenbachs.

    [James Grieshaber]

    James Grieshaber earned a BFA in Graphic Design from Rochester Institute of Technology. Based first in Rochester, NY, and then in Chicago, IL, and then again in Rochester, 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 typefaces:

    • Gothic Gothic (2001), an extended blackletter co-designed 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 typeface co-designed 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 typeface 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 typeface 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.
    • Sarina (2011). A connected script published by Sorkin Type.
    • Supermercado One (2011, Google Font Directory) is a low contrast semi geometric typeface inspired by naive industrial letters. More a signage typeface 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. Google font download.
    • 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.
    • Trattatello (2014). An Apple system font.
    • HWT Archimedes (2017, P22). A revival of the Page No. 122 wood type called Mansard Ornamented, done together with Richard Kegler (P22) and Virgin Wood Type. They write: This new digital version is a simultaneous release with Virgin Wood Type and features a variety of styles including the standard screw head option plus a Phillips head, hex/Allen wrench head, and even the vexing Apple pentalobe tamper resistant star screw. As a bonus, the screwheads themselves are accessible via a glyph palette, so you can put the screws to Comic Sans, or any other font, if you so desire.

    [Santiago Orozco]

    Santiago Orozco (b. 1981, Monterrey) is Typemade in Monterrey, Mexico. He is currently also working for DaniloBlack / Type Network as an information architect. iHis present headquarters is in San Pedro, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

    He created the free geometric typeface Josefin Sans (2010) using a small x-height---people have suggested it as a free alternative for Neutraface. Josefin Sans was followed by Josefin Slab [see this poster by Cauex Pascoa], and both were extended to many weights. Free downloads from the Google Font Directory.

    In 2011, he published Dorsa (a modern interpretation of the ultra-condensed skyline typeface Empire (1937, Morris Fuller Benton, ATF) with some personal details thrown in), Antic, and Clark Hairline, a sans serif with a calligraphic touch. He explains: The idea to create this typeface was to make it geometric, elegant and kind of vintage, special for titling. 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). Italiana (Google Fonts) was designed for use in the headlines of newspapers and magazines. It is inspired by the calligraphy of the Italian masters.

    In 2015, Khaled Hosny and Santiago Orozco cooperated on the Latin / Arabic typeface Reem Kufi. Github link. Khaled, who designed the Arabic part, explains: Reem Kufi is a Fatimid-style decorative Kufic typeface, as seen in the historical mosques of Cairo. It is largely based on the Kufic designs of the late master of Arabic calligraphy, Mohammed Abdul Qadir, who revived this art in the 20th century and formalized its rules.

Two monospaced variants called Arazati Codex are free. Arazati is the name of the place in Uruguay where Johnston was born in 1872. Arazati moved over to Underground in 2019.

    Vicente Rojo

    Catalan artist, b. 1932, Barcelona, who works in Mexico. He studied drawing and sculpting. During the Franco persecution, Vicente and his father fled to Mexico City, and fell in love with the city and the country. Exiled Spanish graphic designer Miguel Prieto employed him---together, Vicente and Miguel would go on to have successful careers. In 1953, he became a director at the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes. After some socio-political art exhibitions, he became interested in geometric artforms.

    For the magazine Plural, Vicente designed a multiline op-art typeface in 1971. A very geometrical bespoke typeface was created in 1971 as well for the Fondo de Cultura Económica.

    Revivals of his typefaces include K22 Plural (2013, Toto). [Google] [More]  ⦿
