Terrestrial Design is Carl Crossgrove's web site. Crossgrove graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in Printing /Typography, and has shown a life-long interest in calligraphy and lettering. Now based in San Francisco, he has worked at Adobe, where he designed the Multiple Master handprinted (semi-Celtic or stone-carved) families Reliq (1998), Reliq Std Active and Reliq Std ExtraActive in 2002, and where, with the help of Kim Buker Chansler and Carol Twombly, he codesigned the Western fonts (Adobe's Wood Series) Origami (hookish, in the expressionist style of Menghart and Preissig), Pepperwood (1994), Ponderosa (1990), Rosewood (1994) and Zebrawood (1994). He was also active at ITC (ITC Minska, 1996) and Agfa Monotype (Origami, a Menhart or Preissig style family; and Mundo Sans, 2002: a 14-weight humanistic family, which includes a fantastic hairline sans).
Other fonts by Crossgrove include Othello (2002, with Steve Matteson), Wakerobin, Scripsit (which was named Judges' Choice in Serif Magazine's 1996 type design competition), Tarantella Script, Ranunculus, Penmark, Curlz MT (1995, Monotype; with Steve Matteson).
Beorcana (2006) is a new 28-part serifless roman in the style of Optima or faces like Albertus, Stellar, Tiepolo, Barbedor, Lydian and Amira. In the making since 1992, it was released by Monotype in 2006. Stephen Coles states: Beorcana is Crossgrove's best and most complete design yet. I can declare from personal experience that it is beautifully drawn and sets very well, small or large, thanks to three optical size masters. It will be a hit with fans of calligraphic sans serifs like Optima. It won an award at TDC2 2007 and was one of the best types of 2007. Florian Hardwig writes: The typeface has no serifs, yet its the opposite of a grotesque. It exhibits the rhythmic contrast and the humanist proportions of a renaissance roman. Its letters please with vividly dancing forms in every detail. However, this obvious calligraphic derivation never seems inappropriately fancy even the spruce swash italics are down-to-earth in a convenient way. The Thin isn't anemic and the Ultra isn't heavy-handed. Crossgrove really knows his stuff.
