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.

Thinkdust
[Alex Haigh]

Graphic and identity design company founded by Alex Haigh in 2005 who was located in Sheffield, UK, but moved to Nottingham. Its web page is drowning in Flash---avoid the main page but go the blog or MyFonts instead. They are selling Taku (2009, bold squarish, with a stencil style added), Aiko (2008, a gorgeous fat techno family), Sukato (2008, another ultrafat beauty) and BAQ Rounded (2008, ultra-fat closed counter face; also at T-26). BAQ Roundded led to the ultra-round fat family Yuki (2010; +YukiLined, a stencil version). Hiruko (2008, eight styles) is a rounded sans family in the style of VAG Round. See also Hiruko Pro (2013). A robust geometric outgrowth of this is Ebisu (2010). Hiruko Stencil (2012) is a further extension.

In 2009, some of their fonts, such as Miyagi (paperclip type) seem to survive at HypeForType. YouWorkForThem carries BAQ, Hiruko, Miyagi, Amaya (2009, grunge), Gen (2009, ink spill grunge), Taku and Yume (2009, ultra fat retro).

Additions in 2010: Rika (a strong condensed sans), Saki Medium (a headline sans that builds on Ebisu), Sho Medium (an elegant expanded sans, also for headlines), Toshiko (techno face), Vow (extra thin, avant garde), Lippy (a lipstick brush face; see also Lippy Sans, 2012).

Typefaces from 2012: York Handwriting (a poster face), Headlined (a grungy bold grotesk in the style of Veneer), Electro (a paperclip typeface), Soto, Mr Chalk (done with Dawn Lewandowski), Letro (a modern slab done with Dawn Lewandowski), Vow Neue, Sobek (alchemic), Patisserie.

Typefaces from 2013: Gongo (rounded monoline all caps sans), Headlined Solid, Nanami (2013, avant-garde sans in 18 styles), Nanami Rounded, Crop (a rounded stencil family).

Typefaces from 2014 include Rustick (hand-drawn poster family), Nanami Handmade.

Portfolio.

I finally understood the name Thinkdust. Upon blowing up the characters, one notices that all the glyphs are sprinkled with dust---see, e.g., Kono, Yumo, Yuko, Yoko, Soto, Roka, Mikagi (paperclip face), Hiroko, and BAQ Metal.

Urtd
[Ondrej Jób]

Bratislava-based type and graphic designer (b. 1984, Czechoslovakia). He graduated from AFAD Bratislava, and in 2009 from the Type and Media program at KABK, where he designed Doko, a serifed text family derived from handlettering. Earlier, he created the Preissig-look family Kompilat (2007), and the monospace font Monoxil (2007).

In 2008, Peter Bilak, Eike Dingler, Ondrej Jób, and Ashfaq Niazi created the 21-style family History at Typotheque: Based on a skeleton of Roman inscriptional capitals, History includes 21 layers inspired by the evolution of typography. These 21 independent typefaces share widths and other metric information so that they can be recombined. Thus History has the potential to generate thousands of different unique styles. History 1, e.g., is a hairline sans; History 2 is Peignotian; History 14 is a multiline face; History 15 is a stapler face, and so forth.

He started Urtd, and sells these fonts: the ION family (2010, LED simulation faces), Outliner (2008, architectural lettering), and the icon sets Ico Weather (2010), Ico Time (2010) and Ico Phone (2010). Klimax Bold (2008) is in the ultra-ultra-fat art deco category, and won an award at TDC2 2009 for display face. See also Klimax Plus (2009).

In 2013, Ondrej Job published the script typeface Odesta.

Typefaces from 2014: Pexico and Pexico Micro (pixel typefaces).

Walter Ballmer

Swiss graphic designer, b. 1923. Toto's K22 Stile Ballmer (2011) is a free art deco face modeled after Walter Ballmer's typeface designed for Olivetti. The Olivetti logo from 1960 by Ballmer also led to Interno (2004), a type family created by Eli Carrico and Ian Lynam at Wordshape. We quote Answers.com: Well known for his advertising, graphics, and industrial design for the Italian office equipment manufacturer Olivetti, Swiss-born Ballmer studied graphic design at the Kunstgewebeschule in Basel from 1940 to 1944. He worked in publishing before moving to Italy in 1947 to join Studio Boggeri in Milan (established 1933). An established and successful graphic design office, Studio Boggeri executed a number of graphic design commissions for the office equipment manufacturer Olivetti and, from 1956, Ballmer went on to work as a graphic designer in Olivetti's advertising department where he remained until 1981. The visual clarity and deceptive simplicity of his graphic design work revealed something of his Swiss training and informed much of his publicity design for the company. Amongst his work for Olivetti was the coordination of a number of exhibitions shown in Italy and abroad, including Olivetti-Style (1961), Olivetti Innovates (1965), and Olivetti Image (1968). He was made a member of Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI) in 1970 and, in 1975, received a Gold Medal for Olivetti-Image at the Ljublijana Bio 5.

In 1963, together with Gret Mengelt-Mergenthaler, he created Texpo for the Schweizer Expo 1964. This custom typeface is not generally available. However, Mindofone made a free version of it, called Hadley Stencil, in 2013. [Google] [More]  ⦿
