Paperclip faces

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.

[Svetoslav Simov]

Fontfabric is the foundry of Svetoslav Simov, a visual designer who is located in Sofia, Bulgaria, b. 1984. They design highly innovative typefaces that have lots of style and flair. Most fonts cover both Latin and Cyrillic. Until 2022, their fonts were sold through MyFonts, but gradually they switched to their own independent shop.

  • Typefaces from 2008: Cubic (3d face), Clou (cloud-like letters), Colo (double-lined and geometric), Snail, Blou (very thick and counterless letters).
  • Typefaces from 2009: Uni Sans (first called United Sans), Kare (psychedelic), File (fat face), Zag (7-style monoline sans with tear drop terminals; it include Zag Drps and Zag Deco), Clou (cloudy letters), Facet (Black and Ultra: paper fold typefaces), Noveu (psychedelic, art nouveau), Pastel (brush face), Rolka (round ultra-fat and curly lettering), Val (rounded fat), Kvant (severe and octagonal), Duplex (fat techno), Avatar (ultra fat black), Dovde (bubbly, co-designed by Maria Karkova), LOT (fat art deco), MOD (ultra-fat), Oval (rounded sans), Quad (octagonal outline), Portal Strips and Portal Black (hyper-experimental geometric typefaces), Prisma (more ultra-fat experimentation) and Wigan (Wigan Thin and Bold of this paperclip typeface appeared in 2014).
  • Creations in 2010: Hero (free sans family), Null (ultra fat, free), Aston (a modern high-contrast rounded display face), DAN (free piano key font; Dan Pro is not free though), Solomon (headline sans family) [Images of Solomon: i, ii, iii, iv, v, vi, vii, viii], Dox (ultra fat geometric poster face), Sudoku (a geometric display family with several biline and triline styles, done with Fontan2), VAL Stencil (a stencil in which repeating letters makes them tilt the other way; free), Code (2010, a fantastic monoline sans family; images: i, ii, iii, iv, v), Dekar (techno), Clipdings Web, Clipdings Travel, Clipdings Graphic Arts, Babydings, Artdings, Reader (Light, Bold: avant garde sans), SAF2010 (comic book/signage: well, Jan Erasms, the designer in 2006 of Menyaka for FIFA WC 2010 is not happy, calling SAF a blatant imitation), Age Free (free fat organic face), GOTA (a free fat finger sans face).
  • Typefaces from 2011: Gabriel Sans (grotesk family), La Boheme (signage face), Qero Mite (an organic monoline sans), Code Pro (caps only clean sans headline family), Solomon Sans (a headline monoline sans family).
  • Typefaces made in 2012: Nexa (a geometric sans in 16 styles), Nexa, Rex (free octagonal family for Latin and Cyrillic), Hagin (free), Intro (26-style superfamily in the Futura style) and Intro Inline (free Futura-style family for Latin and Cyrillic). Intro Condensed was created in 2014.
  • Typefaces from 2013: Nexa Slab, Nexa Slab XBold, Nexa Slab Bold, Nexa Slab Book, Nexa Slab Light. [Recognize the typeface by the a and the g (an 8 with a small piece missing).
  • Typefaces from 2014: Nexa Rust (a weathered letterpress emulation family of 83 typefaces by Radomir Tinkov, Ani Petrova, Svetoslav Simov and Vasil Stanev).
  • Typefaces from 2015: Bronn Rust, Bronn Script and Bronn Rust Extras is a handcrafted collection of 22 typefaces created on the coat tails of the hugely popular Nexa Rust and other typefaces in the grungy worn letterpress and layering vogue. The roundish tightly set broad-ranged sans typeface family Panton is sure to make waves for years to come---it is the typeface for mobile devices. Sensa (2015, Radomir Tinkov and Svetoslav Simov) is a handcrafted 21-style family divided into the subfamilies Sensa Brush, Sensa Pen, Sensa Wild, Sensa Sans, Sensa Serif and Sensa Goodies.

View Fontfabric's typefaces. In 2015, Ani Petrova, Svetoslav Simov and Radomir Tinkov co-designed the 214-style mammoth font system Intro Rust, a rough version of Fontfabric's Intro. The fonts are partitioned over Intro Rust, Intro Script, Intro Head and Intro Goodies. Still in 2015, we find Nexa Script.

In 2017, Plamen Motev and Svetoslav Simov co-designed Uni Neue, a total remake of Fontfabric's earler typeface Uni Sans (2009). Svetoslav Simov, Plamen Motev and the Fontfabric team (Vladislav Jordanov, Stan Partalev, Mirela Belova, Jacklina Jekova, Nikolay Petroussenko) produced Zing Rust, Zing Sans Rust and Zing Script Rust in the same year: it consists of 521 handmade typefaces.

In 2018, Mirela Belova and Svetoslav Simov co-designed the 20-style geometric sans typeface family Mont. Svet Simov and Svetlin Balezdrov co-designed the humanist sans family Squad, and Simov published the free all caps flared terminal font Colus in 2018. Gilam was designed in 2018 by Ivan Petrov, Plamen Motev and Svetoslav Simov---it is based on DIN, but is more geometric and has obliquely cut terminals.

In 2019, Svet Simov, Radomir Tinkov and Stan Partalev designed the 72-strong Noah family of geometric sans typefaces, which is partitioned into four groups by x-height from small (Noah Grotesque) to medium (Noah and Noah Text) to large (Noah Head). Codesigner of Mozer (2019, by Svetoslav Simov, Ani Petrova, Mirela Belova and Nikolay Petrousenko: a condensed headline sans family that covers Latin, Greek and Cyrillic; Mozer SemiBold is free).

In 2021, Svetoslav Simov and Vika Usmanova dusted off the 18-style update of Mont called Mont Blanc. It has very short descenders and medium-sized ascenders, two variable styles, and some redesigned glyphs. Its biggest problem will be the name---surely, the famous Swiss pen maker Mont Blanc will complain sooner or later about its trademark. I am puzzled about MyFonts, which did not catch this problem when they announced the typeface. In 2021, Simov also co-designed Code Next (a 20-style geometric sans by Svetoslav Simov, Mirela Belova and Stan Partalev; it includes two variable fonts).

Their fonts include Nanami (2013, avant-garde sans), Nanami 3D (2014, free shadow typefaces, among the prettiest ones ever created), Miyagi (2008, a paperclip / neon sign typeface that revives Letraset's Yagi Link Double, a 1970s typeface of Robert Trogman for Facsimile Fonts) and Taku (2008, Taku stencil), BAQ Outline, BAQ Rounded (like VAG Rounded), Hiruko (geometric sans family, free at Dafont), Hiruko Pro (2013), Ebisu (2010), Sukato (very fat), Aiko, Kata (2009, grandissimo grunge).

Marit Angenita Otto

Dutch type designer who published the experimental typeface Jazmo in 2012 at URW: Jazmo is an offspring of an assignment I did for a Dutch architect. A classic building and coincidently the place of my studio in my hometown Zwolle, Netherlands, needed to be renovated. My job was to design the house numbers and signs for this building. This building I refer to was built in 1932 and designed according to the New objectivity architecture. Now it accommodates several artist and craftsmen and also houses students. In my design I used elements of the Art Nouveau.

In 2013, she published Smooth Buggaloo (URW++), a typeface that was inspired by the music of the sixties. Le Rock (2013, URW++) is a bouncy freeform display typeface. Labyrindo (2013, URW++) is inspired by Greek labyrinths.

In 2014, Marit published Pipeline (URW++), a gaspipe or paperclip typeface, Filistique (URW++, a flowing informal unconnected script typeface), and Nipon (URW++), a display typeface.

In 2015, still at URW++, she created the stylish display typeface Democrazia, the hybrid oriental/Arabic emulation typeface Eurabia, the display typeface family Kosmique, the meccano typeface C-Nation, the squarish stencil typeface Constructa, the squarish revolutionary typeface Picastro (the name is a contraction of Picasso and Castro; not to be confused with Leon Hulst's signage typeface Picastro, made a year earlier), and the display typeface New Daily.

Setup (was: 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 founded Urtd in 2009 in Liptovsky Hradok, Slovakia, and renamed it Setup in 2016. He sells these fonts: the ION family (2010, LED simulation typefaces), 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).

Creations in 2011: Clip (2011) is a 4-style Opentype-feature-loaded paperclip family.

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 Primiterus (a hipster style typeface by Maciej Swierczek), Toggle, Rustick (hand-drawn poster family), Nanami Handmade.

In 2015, Alex Haigh published the avant-garde typeface family Nanami Pro, an extension of Nanami, the free shadow typeface Nanami 3D, and Nanami Rounded (which in turn was followed by Nanami Rounded Pro in 2016).


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.

Walter Ballmer

Swiss graphic designer, b. 1923. iWe 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.

Toto's K22 Stile Ballmer (2011) is a free art deco typeface 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. The Olivetti logo was also extended by Serena Petraglia into a full font (in 2016).

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]  ⦿
