Bernd Volmer is a graphic and type designer from Germany. Before attending type and media, he graduated with a BA in 2011 from the ArtEZ in Arnhem. During this time he also did an internship at Atelier Carvalho Bernau and developed his knowledge and interest in type design and typography. After graduation he started as a freelancer.
In 2013, he graduated from the Type & Media program at KABK, Den Haag. His graduation typeface, Curtis, is based on broad nib calligraphy, and manages in its palette of styles to cover the broad ground between powerful German expressionist display types and very readable text types. In my view, it is the best of the twelve typefaces of the graduation class.
In 2010, Bernd Volmer and Ateleir Carvalho Bernau published the free typeface Jean-Luc, which is named after Jean-Luc Godard. Carvalho / Bernau write: We didn't find out who originally made the lettering for these two movies. Some speculate it could have been Godard himself---Godard's interest in graphic design and typography is clear, with many of his other films employing such strong typography-only titles and intertitles. They are almost a self-sufficient entity, another character in the movie, another comment. This style of lettering is so interesting to us because it is such a clear renunciation of the pretty, classical title screens that were common in that time more conservative films. It has a more vernacular and brutishly low-brow character; this lettering comes from the street. We can not prove this at all, but we think it may be derived from the stencil letters of the Plaque Découpée Universelle (or PDU), a lettering device invented in the 1870s by a certain Joseph A. David, and first seen in France at the 1878 Exposition Universelle, where it found broad appeal and rapid adoption. We think this style of lettering was absorbed into the public domain vernacular of French lettering, and that the 2 ou 3 choses titles are derived from these quotidien lettering style, as it would seem to fit Godard's obsession with vernacular typography.

At the London College of Communication in 2010, Borna Izadpanah (b. Iran) created a modular pair of typefaces, one for Latin and one for Farsi.
In 2015, he graduated from the MATD program at the University of Reading. His graduation typeface, Lida, blends Latin and Perso-Arabic in a multi-font family that includes Lida Sans, Lida Serif, Lida Avestan (for the Avestan script), and various styles of Lida Arabic that produce beautiful yet readable Naskh calligraphic texts. If Lida is any indication, Borna is destined for greatness.
In 2015, he designed the free Latin / Farsi typeface Lalezar: During the 1960s and 1970s a genre of filmmaking emerged in Iran, which was commonly known as FilmFarsi. The main focus of the films produced in this period was on popular subjects such as, sexual romances, musicals and unrealistic heroic characters. The movie posters designed to represent these films were also intended to exaggerate these elements by the use of provocative imagery and a particular type of display lettering. These bold and dynamic letterforms were so popular and widely used that perhaps one can consider them the most significant component of film posters in that period. Lalezar is an attempt to revive the appealing qualities in this genre of lettering and transform them into a modern Arabic display typeface and a Latin companion. Behance link. [Google] [More] ⦿

Bitstream designer (b. 1955) who lives in Michigan City, IN. At Bitstream, he did in-house work, and had his signature on Candy Bits (1996, an M&M simulation font), Prima Sans (1998), Prima Serif (1998), Prima Sans Monospace (Bitstream, with Sue Zafarana, 1998) and Bitstream Vera (2003).
According to Lyles, Bitstream Vera is actually a detuned Bitstream Prima. Gnome asked that we modify some of the characters in the monospace, particularly for coding legibility.

Famous American movie title designer, b. 1935, Antilla, Oriente Province, Cuba. Pablo Ferro was raised on a remote farm before emigrating to New York with his family as a teenager. Ferro taught himself animation from a book by Preston Blair. In the mid fifties, he began freelancing in the New York animation industry for Academy Pictures and Elektra Studios. He met former Disney animator William Tytla, who became his mentor. Another peer was Stan Lee, the editor of Marvel Comics, with whom he created a series of science fiction adventure comics. In 1961 he became one of the partners to form Ferro, Mogubgub and Schwartz with animation stylist Fred Mogubgub and comics artist Lew Schwartz, and in 1964 he formed Pablo Ferro Films. Ferro worked on films such as Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove and The Thomas Crown Affair.
Wikipedia: Ferro has won over 70 national and international awards, among them numerous CLIOs, a DGA Excellence in Film Award, and several Lifetime Achievement awards. He has also received nominations from such highly regarded institutions as the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt. In 1999 Pablo was awarded the prestigious DaimlerChrysler Design Award, and in 2000 Pablo was inducted into the Art Directors Hall of Fame.

Or Rafael Koch. Raphael Koch (Blokes.ch, Switzerland) graduated in 1999 from Schule fĂĽr Gestaltung Luzern, Switserland. His Diploma work there, Transport, involved the development of several typefaces, and was part of a team effort by Urs Lehni, Peter Körner, Markus Wohlhüter and Rafael Koch. Koch designed the very original multiline / prismatic typeface family LL Prismaset"> (2006-2013, Lineto, with James Goggin, Alex Rich, and Mauro Paolozzi) and codesigned Lego in 1999 at Lineto with Urs and Juerg Lehni.
In 2015, Raphael Koch and Mauro Paolozzi codesigned GT Cinetype at Grilli Type. This typeface has outlines consisting of many short straight line segments, thus mimicking the now obsolete pre-digital age technique of laser printing subtitles in movies. At small sizes, the font looks very smooth, but at larger sizes, the straight segments become apparent. [Google] [More] ⦿

New York-born type designer and film director, 1920-1996, known for movie title sequences, famous logos (like that of Minolta), and that mid-20th century look.

Jennifer Bass (his daughter) and Pat Kirkham published Saul Bass: A Life in Film&Design (2011). The book's blurb: This is the first book to be published on one of the greatest American designers of the 20th Century, who was as famous for his work in film as for his corporate identity and graphic work. With more than 1,400 illustrations, many of them never published before and written by the leading design historian Pat Kirkham, this is the definitive study that design and film enthusiasts have been eagerly anticipating. Saul Bass (1920-1996) created some of the most compelling images of American post-war visual culture. Having extended the remit of graphic design to include film titles, he went on to transform the genre. His best known works include a series of unforgettable posters and title sequences for films such as Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo and Otto Preminger's The Man With The Golden Arm and Anatomy of a Murder. He also created some of the most famous logos and corporate identity campaigns of the century, including those for major companies such as AT&T, Quaker Oats, United Airlines and Minolta. His wife and collaborator, Elaine, joined the Bass office in the late 1950s. Together they created an impressive series of award-winning short films, including the Oscar-winning Why Man Creates, as well as an equally impressive series of film titles, ranging from Stanley Kubrick s Spartacus in the early 1960s to Martin Scorsese s Cape Fear and Casino in the 1990s. Designed by Jennifer Bass, Saul Bass's daughter and written by distinguished design historian Pat Kirkham who knew Saul Bass personally, this book is full of images from the Bass archive, providing an in depth account of one of the leading graphic artists of the 20th century.
Joe Clark (Toronto) is developing special fonts for captioning and subtitling for TV and film. Joe's motto is Watching TV is bad enough. Reading TV shouldn't be worse. Two interesting sub-pages: Here he explains the difference between captioning and subtitling. Captions are basically for the deaf, and are manually turned on. They not only describe what is said or heard but also mention or show things about the intonation, style, language, or nature of the voices or sounds. Subtitling is mostly used to translate. It is generally automatically turned on, and shown at the bottom of the screen. On this page, Joe lists the main issues with captioning and subtitling and lists the many problems with popular subtitling typefaces such as Bitstream's Tiresias or Monotype's Arial. Speaker at ATypI 2007 in Brighton. [Google] [More] ⦿

Sierra Kamatchus is a Minnesota-based designer and alumna of University of Minnesota Duluth. In 2014, she codesigned the vintage silent film typeface Good Bad Man with Chank Diesel. She explains: This historic revival font was created especially for use in the preservation and restoration of the 1914 silent film "The Good Bad Man," starring Douglas Fairbanks. There is only one copy of the original film print in existence, and when the film was restored for a screening at the San Francisco Film Festival in 2014 the new font was created to best recreate the intent of the original lettering in the film. It is a smooth and pleasant vintage lettering style, original designed for use on silver screens, now fully rendered in OpenType and ready for you to use in your designs or web pages today.

A movement to retire Trajan sprung up in 2007. Check Kirby Ferguson's video clip on the ubiquity of Carol Twombly's Trajan on movie posters and movie title sequences. And the tedium. Almost simultaneously, Arjen Noordeman published a blog entirely dedicated to the overuse of Trajan in movies. [Google] [More] ⦿
Wikipedia: Trajan is an old style serif typeface designed in 1989 by Carol Twombly for Adobe. The design is based on the letterforms of capitalis monumentalis or Roman square capitals, as used for the inscription at the base of Trajan's Column from which the typeface takes its name. Since the inscription and its writing form manifests in only one case, Trajan is an all-capitals typeface. Instead, small caps are commonly used, and a more complete set of glyphs contained in Trajan Pro (a 2001 update of the original typeface) includes a lower case of small caps. Although Twombly was the first to do a very literal translation of the Trajan inscription into type, a number of interpretations (with added lowercase alphabets) predate Twombly's, particularly Emil Rudolf Weiss' "Weiss" of 1926, Frederic Goudy's 1930 "Goudy Trajan," while Warren Chappell's Trajanus of 1939, while having similar forms for capitals has a markedly medieval lowercase. There are also numerous prominent typefaces that are not revivals, but owe a very clear debt to the Trajan letterforms, most notably Hermann Zapf's 1955 Optima.
We learn also that Trajan is the font used on the Trojan brand of condoms. It is not a surprise, then, to see that it was adopted as the official font of Columbia University, Rice University, the University of Bologna, the University of the District of Columbia, the University of Kansas and the University of Rhode Island. It is also ubiquitous in the movie industry.
