[Jason Nolan]

Good-sized archive by Jason Nolan. Lots of bells and whistles. It gets hairy when he asks 10USD for a 2000-font download, and 20 USD for a 10,000-font download, charging for freeware and shareware fonts made by others. He writes in 2011: 1001 Free Fonts first opened its doors in December 1998 and has since grown to become the most popular free fonts archive online. We receive more than 50,000 visitors daily and have received 150,000,000 visitors since 1998. Over 3,000,000,000 free fonts have been downloaded since 1998.

1919 Type Foundry
[Scott Sullivan]

1919 Type Foundry presents the typographic work of Scott Sullivan, who is currently a graphic design major at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, scheduled to graduate in 2009. About the name: The year 1919 was the year that the Bauhaus school opened in Weimar, Germany. It was roughly the year 1919 when Modernism and Constructivism were born in Germany and the U.S.S.R., respectively. All fonts are heavily based in geometry, therefore: Dosim OKT, Geovlad (2009, constructivist, based on the posters of Georgii and Vladimir Stenberg), 44X34X (2009, futuristic, free). The Triflig Paradigm is another project of his. There he is developing some fonts such as Moon Man, and one can download Gnashraw-Spaced (2009) and two of his FontStruct (pixel) fonts, pgdm001 and pgdm002 (2009). Designmoo link.

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.

[Thomas Huot-Marchand]

256tm is the foundry of Besançon-based designer Thomas Huot-Marchand (b. Dole, France, 1977), the creator of typefaces such as the 72-weight Garaje (from Garaje 55 to Garaje 100; Garaje 53 Unicase Black is free) and Minuscule (a ten style family for small print), which won an award at the TDC2 2005 type competition. He studied under Peter Keller at the ANRT in Nancy, and teaches at the École d'Art de Besançon.

In Comedia he writes about legibility and the creation of Miniscule, which was optimized to be read at 2 to 6 points. His research for this at the ANRT was based on the theory of "compact typography" put forth by Emile Javal, a French ophtalmologist who explained his ideas in "Physiologie de la lecture et de l'écriture" (1905). For examples, see here and here.

[Dave Crossland]

Abattis is a free software type foundry launched in 2009 by Dave Crossland. Auto-description on his wiki: I'm a designer and nerd in Bournemouth, UK, and I do systems and network consultancy for a living. I completed a BA (Hons) Interaction Design degree at Ravensbourne College in 2006, and am currently on the MA Typeface Design course at Reading, from October 2007 to July 2009. My design philosophy centers around the parameterisation and automation of design to improve the design process, and some of my old ideas are published at designprocess.com. He is a proponent of open source code and of free fonts, and involves himself with dedication in the Open Font Library project. He defines Free fonts as follows: Free Fonts are about freedom, not price. They are fonts you are free to use for any purpose, fonts whose internals you are free to study, fonts you are free to improve, fonts you are free to redistribute, and fonts you are free to redistribute improved versions of which means - in the specific context of font software - fonts you are explicitly free to embedded, subset, bundle and derive from to create any kind of artwork. To be truly Free they must allow commercial use and even to be sold by anyone - as it is about freedom, not price. His dreams: Dave dreams of a free culture of visual communication around the world, so he decided to free fonts. His Masters thesis related the history of the software freedom movement to the practice of type design.

In 2009, for his MA work at Reading, he designed Cantarell, a free sans family, done together with Jakub Steiner, free at CTAN. OFL page.

Finally, in 2009 or 2010, he started work on the Google Font Directory.

ABFonts Santos FC 2012 Numerals (2012) is an orphaned athletic lettering font.

The font was created on request and the image that was provided only showed the jersey numbers of Santos FC. Based on photographs, the player's name is not shown on the jersey explaining the absence of letters in the font. It appears that the source image was created by Cleiton Fabiano of www.futbr.com.

Adobe Edge Web Fonts

Adobe offers a free web font service in partnership with Google. Initially, there are about 500 fonts to choose from. They appear to coincide largely with the Google Web Fonts. Adobe's contributions consist of Source Sans Pro (2012), Source Serif (2014, see also here), and Source Code Pro.

They write: Adobe will be applying its considerable font expertise to improving and optimizing a number of the open source fonts that are available in both Google Web Fonts and Edge Web Fonts. The teams from Typekit, Adobe Type, and Google Web Fonts are working to identify which fonts will benefit the most from our attention, and how we can best approach improving their rendering and performance. Efforts will include hinting some fonts for better rendering at smaller sizes, plus a number of other optimizations. All of these contributions will themselves remain open source.

Since the Adobe font preview is anemic, Yvo Schaap published this font preview. Peter Chon has another preview. And here is Tony Stuck's preview.

Most notably, Saberrider's fontsract and Stewf's Leaflet family. Using Josef Albers' Kombinationsschrift alphabet (1928-1931) as my foundation, I've been having a lot of fun remixing and experimenting with his letters.).

[Lisa D. Jenkins]

Lisa D. Jenkins designed some beautiful fonts, such as Xanadu, Laser Systems (1998) and Kitchen Tiles. Explanation provided by her the gorgeous Kitchen Tiles: "This font was originally designed by Boris Mahovac of Abeceda dizajn. I liked the look of it, and thought it should be a fairly easy font to re-create in order to test out the Softy software. I changed a great number of the characters from his original design mostly for readability reasons. This font includes pretty much all the international characters so that everyone can enjoy it." The free stuff is only a sample of the full families. She also made Cat Silhouettes. All of Lisa's fonts are first rate and beautiful, so please support her. On February 9, 1999, she removed Kitchen Tiles. Go here for the story. She also runs AJ's Catz, a cat font archive. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Alexej Kryukov

Developer of these free font families, quite exquisite and complete:

  • Old Standard TT (2008-2010): a high quality didone 2-style family, suitable for classical, biblical and medieval studies as well as for general-purpose typesetting in languages which use Greek or Cyrillic script, as well as Latin. Many math symbols are included. Old Standard is part of the Google open font directory of free web fonts, and was adapted for TeX use. He writes: Old Standard is supposed to reproduce the actual printing style of the early 20th century, reviving a specific type of Modern (classicist) style of serif typefaces, very commonly used in various editions of the late 19th and early 20th century, but almost completely abandoned later. It supports typesetting of Old and Middle English, Old Icelandic, Cyrillic (with historical characters, extensions for Old Slavonic and localised forms), Gothic transliterations, critical editions of Classical Greek and Latin, and many more.
  • Tempora LGC Unicode: Kryukov writes Tempora LGC Unicode was my first attempt to create a multilingual font supporting Latin, Greek (including polytonic characters) and Cyrillic scripts. This family is based on two well-known free typefaces similar to Adobe Times: Nimbus Roman No 9 L by URW (russified by Valek Filippov), and the Omega Serif family, developed by Yannis Charalambous. However, all basic components of the font, and especially its Greek and Cyrillic parts, have suffered serious modifications, so that currently Tempora LGC Unicode represents an independent typeface, quite different from its predecessors.
  • Theano Classical fonts: Theano Didot is a classicist face, with both its Roman and Greek parts implemented in Didot style. Theano Modern has Greek letters designed in the Porsonic style. It is based on Figgins Pica No. 3 / Small Pica No. 2, one of the most successful Porsonic Greek typefaces. Theano Old Style is a modernized "Old Style" Greek font with a large number of historic ligatures and alternate forms, modelled after some early 19th century types designed by Figgins' type foundry. It is accompanied by a Latin typeface based on some "Old Style" Roman fonts of the late 19th and early 20th century.
  • CM-LGC (2003): The CM-LGC package contains Type 1 fonts converted from METAFONT sources of the Computer Modern font families. The following encodings are supported: T1, T2A (Cyrillic), LGR (Greek) and TS1. This package includes also Unicode virtual fonts for use with Omega/Lambda. CM-LGC is the first Type 1 font package for LaTeX which supports all European scripts (LGC means Latin, Greek and Cyrillic). Alexej Kryukov used Textrace to create CM-LGC.

He contributed to the GNU Freefont project via FreeSerif Cyrillic, and some of the Greek symbols. He also provided valuable direction about Cyrillic and Greek typesetting.

A free on-line truetype font editor, developed by Golan Levin, with the help of Jonathan Feinberg and Cassidy Curtis. (Alphabet Synthesis Machine is a co-production of Art21, Inc., New York City, and The Arts Company, Cambridge, MA) It has a font archive with over 7,000 fonts created by visitors. All fonts created are of the inner city graffiti kind, so this is not meant to be a professional tool. I estimate that the archive gets about 50 fonts per day. See, e.g., here for M1. See here for Antarctica (2007) by Czar Choi. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Andrés Torresi

Participant in the Argentinian type coop Huerta Tipográfica. With Carolina Giovagnoli, he developed Cambo (2011, Huerta Tipográfica), a family for Latin and Khmer [a free weight at Fontsquirrel].

Katachi Media collaborated with Andrés Torresi to create a typeface superfamily - targeted mainly for the iPad, but also for web and print. An intense project between Andrés in Argentina, and Katachi in Norway, took place over 14 months. The result so far is a serif and sans-serif, two of in total seven weights of the Katachi typeface. In the coming months we'll be adjusting these two, as well as add the last five weights.

In 2012, Andrés Torresi published Telex at Google Web Fonts: Telex is a humanist sans serif conceived to be a web font with nice legibility at normal text sizes.

Asap (2012) is a free rounded sans family designed by Pablo Cosgaya for Omnibus Type. Asap is based on Ancha (designed by Pablo Cosgaya and Hector Gatti), and has been developed with the collaboration of Andrés Torres. In 2014, Huerta Tipografica published the free text typeface family Caladea which was designed by Carolina Giovagnoli and Andrés Torresi.

Now it is equipped with Slavic Cyrillic and Monotonic Greek.

Andy Voelkle

Stone carver from Houston, Texas, who designed a full roman alphabet in 2001 as an alternative for Trajan for stone carvers. Ray Larabie then created Texhenge (2001) according to Andy's specifications, while Andy tested the font out on real marble.

In Andy's own words: I approached Ray Larabie by email in early 2001 and asked him to produce a "texhenge" font for our project here in Texas, to build the first full-size stone circle in over 2000 years. I wanted a modern font to replace Trajan as the ideal stonecarving font for our age. He and I labored over the design of the three special symbols (dagger, double dagger, per mille sign) for several months until Ray's final design, represented in these two fonts, which are in my opinion beautiful and perfect. The main stone was to be a smooth limestone, but in 2001 I began laying out a test in six inch high lettering on carrara marble, a text of Ray's perfect Latin and "et" sign, and a tribute to my lovely wife Kathy. The test was interrupted and postponed until 2008 when I carved it. The bench sits outside our home, just off the sidewalk. It is a popular resting spot for us senior citizens, and we have seen young lovers enjoying a moment alone in quiet conversation. I am honored to have this font, and to have carved it first. Much more is planned for the font as the Texhenge.com stone circle project progresses over the years.

The bench in which "Kathy and Andy" is carved is dedicated by Andy to Kathy McKee.

Apple Watch Font

In September 2014, Apple announced the imminent arrival of the Apple Watch, which comes with a new typeface developed in house. It has a legible, open DIN-like look, but the name of its designer was not released. The 35 fonts are grouped into subfamilies San Francisco Text and San Francisco Display, and are available to designers of Apple Watch applications here.

The reaction of the curmudgeon society, aka The Typophiles, is quite predictably negative, with opinions including Susan Kare's original San Francisco (also done for Apple) was better. I really wonder why the typophiles bother---it's not their magazine or their web page---companies are free to use anything they like, including "not wasting a lot of effort on new typefaces".

Arev Fonts
[Stephen Schrenk]

Motivated by mathematical applications, the "Arev" set of fonts adds Greek, Cyrillic, Latin-A, and some Latin-B, and Symbol characters (music and math, mainly) to Bitstream's Vera fonts. Stephen Schrenk (whose nom de plume is Tavmjong Bah) created the Arev Sans font. The text accompanying the Arev Sans package is: The package arev provides virtual fonts and LaTeX packages for using Arev Sans. Arev Sans is a derivative of Bitstream Vera Sans created by Tavmjong Bah by adding support for Greek and Cyrillic characters. Bah also added a few variant letters that are more appropriate for mathematics. The primary purpose for using Arev Sans in LaTeX is presentations, particularly when using a computer projector. Arev Sans is quite readable for presentations, with large x-height, "open letters," wide spacing, and thick stems. The style is very similar to the SliTeX font lcmss, but heavier. Stephen Hartke converted Arev Sans to Type 1 format, and created the virtual fonts and packages for using Arev Sans in LaTeX. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Aritro Dias

Graphic designer in Kolkata, India, who "created" the tweetware script typeface Vigneta (2015)---he is asking 2 dollars for it tto; the only problem is that it was actually stolen from Ilham Harry. In 2015, he published the free font Cassiderra and has the chtutzpah to write Cassiderra is a beautiful and expressive handmade script font made by me. It is a shameless copy of Eduilson Wessler Coan's Delicatta (2012)----it was removed within 24 hours. He also "made" (referring to it as my project) the free curly Victorian typeface Qwerly, which was made in 2014 by Dede Mulyadi. And the list goes on. I can't understand why Behance does not place him on the no-fly list.

Atelier Carvalho Bernau
[Kai Bernau]

Foundry and studio run by Susana Carvalho and Kai Bernau (see also his Letterlabor site), located in Den Haag, The Netherlands, and established in 2006. Has a blog.

Kai Bernau (b. 1978) studied graphic design at the University of Applied Sciences Schwabisch Gmünd in Germany before relocating to the Netherlands, where he graduated from the Design & Typography course of the KABK in The Hague in 2005 with his successful Neutral Typeface project. He continued in the KABK's Type and Media Master course where he graduated in 2006. Kai teaches type design in the Master in Art Direction program at ECAL in Lausanne, Switzerland. Susana Carvalho and Kai Bernau formed Atelier Carvalho Bernau, which is based in The Hague, The Netherlands.


  • In 2010, they published the free titling grotesk Jean-Luc (Godard), inspired by the movie titling in (1967). Bernau writies: We did not 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's 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, 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. We learned about the PDU through Eric Kindel's article in Typography Papers 7. In 2009, then-Werkplaats Typografie student Dries Wiewauters surprised us with a revival of the Plaque Découpée Universelle. Below, the JeanLuc alphabet (white) and the PDU alphabet (blue), to show similarities and differences.

Lyon reflects our convictions about modern digital typeface design: A decisively digital outline treatment that reveals our modern repertoire of tools, and the typeface itself as a modern design tool, paired with a certain Times-like unobtrusiveness in the Text sizes, contrasts nicely with Lyon's 16th century heritage.
  • Neutraface Slab (2007-2009, art directed by Christian Schwartz and Ken Barber). The slab of the famous Neutraface family at House Industries.
  • Neutral (2005-2009). The Neutral typeface was Kai's graduation project from the KABK undergrad course. It is what one could call a basic sans. It first appeared as Neutral BP in the now defunct B&P Foundry. In 2014, Typotheque picked it up. Kai writes: Neutral was inspired by typefaces that seem ageless, remaining fresh and relevant even decades after they were designed. It was constructed based on a set of parameters derived by measuring and averaging a number of popular 20th-century Sans Serif fonts.
  • Custom typeface Munich Re (2008-2009) for the Munich Re Reinsurance group. MunichRe Sans takes roots in the grotesque types of the 1950s (among others, Dick Dooijes' Mercator for the Lettergieterij Amsterdam).
  • Custom typeface Harvard Museum Neutral (2008).
  • Atlas Grotesk (2012, by Kai Bernau, Susan Carvalho and Christian Schwartz, Commercial Type). A revival of Dick Dooijes's Mercator.
  • Custom typeface Proprio (2007-2009) for the Fabrico Proprio project. This is a willfully bare-bones grotesk family without any snootiness.

The company's blurb: Robert Sugar is the president and creative director of Auras Design. A graduate of American University, he taught publication design there for nine years. Early positions working with printers and typesetters gave him an expanded perspective on the designer's role in producing print publications.

Apparently, they are now outdated, having been replaced by the DejaVu Sans and Serif families. He maintains the Cyrillic glyph set in DejaVu. The URW-CYR family contains cleaned-up and fixed Serbian glyphs---these are now outdated, since Valek Filipov has merged (and first improved) them back into upstream URW-CYR fonts available here. Danilo Segan also created Nova and Nova Light (2003-2004), an art deco Cyrillic unicase family. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Bitstream Charter
[Matthew Carter]

Alternate URL. Originally made by Matthew Carter in 1987, an upgraded commercial version was released by Bitstream in 2004 under the name Charter BT Pro. Bitstream Charter is a typeface optimized for printing on the low-resolution 300 dpi laser printers of the 1980s. The typeface is suitable for printing on both modern high-resolution laser printers and lower resolution inexpensive inkjet printers. In 1992, along with their version of Courier, Bitstream donated the Charter font to the X Consortium under terms that allowed modified versions of the font to be redistributed.

Several others took them up on the offer, most notably SIL which published Charis SIL, which has an extended glyph set that covers Cyrillic and other scripts.

In 2013, Michael Sharpe extended Bitstream Charter and provides small caps, oldstyle figures and superior figures in all four styles, accompanied by LaTeX font support files. Sharpe's fonts are called XCharter (opentype and type 1). [Google] [More]  ⦿

Bitstream Vera Fonts
[Jim Lyles]

The Bitstream Gnome project has released a free no-strings-attached typeface family Vera (2003) for the Linux world. Developed by Bitstream's Jim Lyles, Vera comes in didone Serif, Sans and Sans Mono versions, with Bold, Oblique and Bold Oblique weights. The Sans Mono families have a characteristic dotted zero and an almost Z-shaped lower case l, and are in my view far from optimal. The serif fonts are a bit like Carter's Georgia.

[Douglas Crockford]

Charles K. Bliss was a Jewish refugee who spent much of World War II in Shanghai. While in China, he attempted to learn to read Chinese. Frustrated by the complexity of language, he designed a 20th Century ideographic language that could be read and written by people of all languages. It was 1942. Bliss was a chemist by training, so he based his design on a small set of ideographs (idea symbols) that could be combined to express complicated ideas, much as atoms could be combined to create complex molecules. This language would use images and icons instead of words. The language is called Blissym (Blissymbolics). Blissym has been proven in work with handicapped children in Canada and other countries. This has been documented in a film from National Film Board of Canada and Film Australia called Mr. Symbol Man. Blissym is a visual language. It cannot be spoken except by first translating to another language. The truetype amd metafonts at this site are free. Douglas Crockford made a symbol family called Blissymbols in 2003, in both metafont and truetype versions. [Google] [More]  ⦿

[John Hudson]

Academic publisher in Leiden, The Netherlands. In 1989, DecoType produced the first ever computer-typeset Persian and English dictionary for them. In 2009, Brill has resumed its 325 year old tradition of Arabo-Dutch typography by adapting Tasmeem for its Arabic texts. In 2008, Brill commissioned John Hudson to make a text face. Hudson's PDF explains how Brill had been working mostly with Baskerville, so the new Brill typeface is also transitional, but narrower, resulting in savings of paper. Greek and Cyrillic are covered by Brill as well.

In 2012, Brill was made available for free download for non-commercial use. While Brill is an original design by John Hudson, the blackletter range of characters was made by Karsten Lücke. Gerry Leonidas and Maxim Zhukov were consulted for Greek and Cyrillic, respectively. The fonts follow Unicode and contain nearly all symbols people in the humanities may ever need.

Bureau Roffa (was: Designtown)
[Jasper Michael De Waard]

Dutch creator (b. 1996, Rotterdam) of the free Google Web Font display typeface Expletus Sans (2011). The theme of this typeface: disconnect the strokes, but not totally. He runs a one-man design studio located in Rotterdam. He created the six-style family Rotterdam (2008), which he describes as art deco with a typeface lift, and Disc (2008, CD-inspired).

In 2013, Jasper founded Bureau Roffa. A much better name than Designtown, Roffa is slang for Rotterdam. At Bureau Roffa, one can buy the 12-style humanist sans typeface family Sensato (2013). The regular weight is free. Features of Sensato include the Garamond heritage, the diagonal stress, some ink traps, slightly tilted outlines, open counters (for legibility), and solid spacing. Due to a trademark issue, De Waard was forced to rename Sensato to Proza.

Castcraft Software Inc (or: OptiFont)

Castcraft [3649 W Chase Ave Skokie, IL 60026], showed off a comprehensive library of fonts, all with extended character sets for multi-language typography. OptiFont is a trademark filed in 1990 by Fredric J. Kreiter of Castcraft. Castcraft sold a CD-ROM Type Library Volume 1 at 200 USD. Its entire font collection was sold for 1000 USD. It also made some custom fonts. Most post-1990 fonts have the prefix OPTI. For example, OPTI-Peking is an oriental simulation font. OPTI-Favrile is a copy of Tom Carnase's Favrile (WTC).

A visitor warned me that there is absolutely zero security when you order from this outfit, so you are warned--this is a dangerous site! It seems that Manny Kreiter (d. 2005) was the last President&CEO, and that his family (Abe, Harry and Ned Kreiter) have been at it since the days of metal type (1936) starting as Type Founders of Chicago. I found this on their pages: Castcraft has licensing [sic] the entire 20,000 TypeFaces from "Type Films of Chicago" and the entire "Solotype Alphabets" collection. Mike Yanega claims that most of their fonts are clearly not original any more than most of Bitstream's are original, and like them they re-name many of their fonts to avoid copyright issues. Their fonts all appear to be a 'dead collection' of copies of relatively old designs that have already appeared in many other collections from the likes of WSI and SSi.

In 2010, John Brandt reports: Castcraft, aka Type Founders of Chicago, moved decades ago from Hubbard St in Chicago to a close-in suburb (Skokie? Niles?) and was still operating within the past few years when I happened to drive by. I failed to find any current incarnation, but they used several names even years ago as a prominent pirate. Besides pirated fonts (Typositor to later, generally poor digital), they were a big metal vendor (I have a partial metal set of Helvetica gifted as they left downtown in the 1970s), and also had a guy (whose name escapes me) who did fabulous high-end signage, from sand-blasted glass to the created-on-building inscribed metal logo for a well-known Michigan Ave mall. Longtime owner Manny Kreiter died in 2005, but whether Boomie or any of the others who may still be around kept it going is unknown. Aside from simply having ANY version of their many offerings, most would consider their collection worthless. Anyone who has a digital "OPTIfont" and a font editor can readily view the problems, including usually several times too many Bezier points within any character. I counted 78 control points on a minimal character, for instance, that should have had less than a dozen.

Listing of Castcraft fonts (compiled by myself). The 802 fonts listed here are all dated between 1990 and 1994. I know there are at least 1,000 digital fonts made by them, so my list is incomplete.

This link maintained by alt.binaries.fonts regulars contains most OPTI fonts for free download. It contains in particular some scans of one-line listings (i, ii, iii), and lists of name equivalences (i, ii).

[Christian "Cinga" Thalmann]

Catharsis is located in Leiden, The Netherlands. Before that, Christian Thalmann's page Cinga.ch was run out of Switzerland, when he was a student at ETH Zürich. It had free typefaces such as the great Arabic simulation typeface Catharsis Bedouin (2004), CatharsisCircular, CatharsisRequiem (a unicase pair), CatharsisRequiemBold, CatharsisCargo, Cirnaja Bookhand and Cirnaja Calligraphy (made for his artificial language, Obrenje), Catharsis Macchiato (2005), CatharsisEspresso (2005).

As Catharsis, the commercial foundry, he published Octant in 2013: Octant is an original steampunk display typeface drawing inspiration from Victorian-age steel and brass engineering, as well as from blackletter typography. Gryffensee (2013, in styles called Eins, Zwei and Drei) is designed to be the Futura of blackletter, combining the time-honored gravity and relentlessness of the Gothic script with the clean, contemporary freshness of the geometric sans. It also covers Cyrillic.

Backstein (2013), baked brick, took its inspiration from the broken antiqua lettering in Berlin's old subway stations.

Volantene Script (2013) is a (free) uncial display typeface inspired by the penmanship of Lady Talisa Maegyr-Stark as seen on HBO's Game of Thrones. Numina (2013, Glamour and Glory substyles) is an extensive condensed fashion-oriented typeface family related to Skyline and Corvinus.

Maestrale (2013) adds calligraphic and flamboyant extenders to a decorative text typeface for a dramatic effect. Choose between Maestrale Manual (swashy) and Manuale Text.

Blumenkind (2013) is inspired by an instance of metal-strip lettering found on the Bürgermeister Kornmesser Siedlung residential building complex in Berlin from the 1960s.

Brillinace (2013) is a glamorous contemporary display blackletter combining the rich tapestry of Textura with a hint of the airy lightness of Spencerian script. Let's say that it is a light-hearted Textura.
