1919 Type Foundry
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.

About his GeauxXPDF typeface (2010), he writes: I had extracted a nearly complete set on this one a few years back, except for J and Z which I created on my own. As best I can tell, it only exists as an upper case font without most punctuation, so I created that too to make it more useable. I don't know how much LSU [Louisiana State University] paid for this design, but to me it always looked like something that Larabie or Iconian would have given away. He also extracted HDRadioAlphabet from a rounded Arial typeface he found on HD radio. His UScoreRGK (2012) is a blocky angular font used on-screen by Fox Sports. LCD Display (2012) is a 28-segment LED font. UA Terrafont (2012) was based upon the vector art in this PDF file.

Aerotype is a foundry in Camarillo, CA (formerly in Glendale, CA). It sells the typefaces of Stephen Miggas. Many types were designed around 1998, and most were rejuvenated and updated in 2005. A list of Aerotype's typefaces typefaces:
Kediri, Indonesia-based designer (b. 1989) of the rounded squarish typeface Dixietal Basic (2018) and the straight-edged typeface Wkwkwk Land (2018). In 2019, Afiq published the children's handwriting fonts Jack No Fruit and My Scrawl.
Designer of the Agave font between 2013 and 2019. He writes: Agave was an attempt at making a small, monospaced, outline font that would be geometrically regular and simple. The endeavor was motivated by a deep adoration of old-school console bitmap fonts, of Consolas, of Pragmata Pro, as well as a novice's curiosity for typographical design. When it came to establishing a "simple" design scheme, the natural inclination was to separate the glyph design concerns into that of "frame" and "trait". By frame, we refer to the naive geometric extent of a glyph and its parts. And by trait, we mean, for example, the "way" in which a stroke curves, or the relationship between one part of a glyph and another. Adhering to personal tastes, bone-deep laziness, and the quirky spirit of old computer terminal fonts, the delineations of frame and trait amounted to two mathematical patterns: the power of two and the golden ratio. That is of course an understatement. This wonderful font has almost 5000 glyphs, half of them useful icons. To be sure, many of these glyphs were added by Ryan McIntyre in his Nerd Fonts version of Agave in 2020.

Alejandro Cabrera Avila
Designer who lives in Buenos Aires and who teaches graphic design and typography at the Universidad de Buenos Aires. He has worked as an art director in prestigious Argentina-based studios, handling high-profile corporate brands such as Arcor, Marta Harff, Morph, SC Johnson, Danone, and Movicom. He runs Estudio Paul. Professor at Facultad de Arquitectura, Universidad de Buenos Aires. Co-creator, with Apostrophe at Apostrophic Laboratory, of Usenet (2000), FontCop I through IV (2000) and the pixel font family Cayetano. Published the dot matrix font Stardust with T-26 in 2000. Designed the gorgeous font Elektora in 2000. He developed with Michael Lynch a 17-font Tennis set of grid-based pixel fonts. At Typeworx, he published Reflex (2002), a commercial 6-style unicase font family. Another web site by Alejandro. Cofounder of DAS, a design studio in Buenos Aires.
Cofounder of Sudtipos (2003), where he does custom work and creates new typefaces.
Still at Sudtipos, he digitized the beautiful handwriting/calligraphic typefaces by Angel Koziupa called Alma (2005), Murga, Habano and Tiza, which together with his script typeface Argenta (2004), Oxida (2005), the medieval script typeface Mama Script (2004, designed with Alfredo Graziani), Divina (2004, with Alfredo Graziani), and the sans family Kautiva (2004) can be bought via Umbrella Type.
Herencia (2004, a handwriting typeface done with Diego Giaccone), Grover (2004, slab serif), Milk Script (2004, with Alfredo Graziani), Mama Script (2004, with Alfredo Graziani), Politica (2004, a techno typeface with a very thin Thin weight) are at Sudtipos.
The Bluemlein Scripts (2004-2005, Umbrella and Veer) are based on the calligraphic renderings of Charles Bluemlein, shown in a 1943 ink catalog: Miss Le Gatees, Mr Rafkin, Mr Keningbeck, Mr Lackboughs, Lady Dawn, Mrs Von Eckley, Mr Sheppards, Mr Dafoe, Mr Canfields, Mr Stalwart, Mr Sandsfort, Mr Leopolde, Mr DeHaviland, Mr Blaketon, Miss Stanfort, Miss Packgope, Miss Fajardose, Mrs Saint-Delafield, Mrs Blackfort, Mr Sopkin, Mr Sheffield, Miss Lankfort, Herr Von Muellerhoff, Dr Sugiyama, Dr Carbfred. (Note: Soft Horizon's Lainie Day (1993) is an earlier free font in the style of Lady Dawn and Mr Lackboughs). In 2011, that series was made available at Google Web Fonts.
Sudestada (2005, Sudtipos) is a handwriting script developed with Diego Giaccone. Cuisine (2005, Umbrella Type) is an informal bold script. Mousse Script (2005, Sudtipos) is based on Glenmoy, a 1932 Stephenson Blake typeface. Suave Script (2005) is a 4am jazz bar script. Ministry (2005) is related in style but less funky, Chocolate (2005) is for sales ads, and Cenizas (2005, with Angel Koziupa) is straight from an old manuscript.
Whomp (2006, Umbrella) was based on a partial sign-painting font by Alf Becker (1930s), and so was Buffet Script (2006, Sudtipos). Affair (2006, Umbrella) is swashy and calligraphic, while Candy Script (2007) and its italic version Sugar Pie (2011) are based on Argentina's market lettering. Galgo Script (2007) is a brush calligraphic font based on a design of Angel Koziupa.
Burgues Script (2007) is an ornate calligraphic script based on the lettering of calligraphy teacher Louis Madarasz (1859-1910) (award at TDC2 2008). Burgues Script, Adios Script (2008: it won an award at TDC2 2009), Feel Script and Sugar Pie all won awards at Tipos Latinos 2008.
Sinfonieta (2006) and Buffet Script are fifties style connected scripts. Feel Script (2007) is based on lettering that calligrapher and logo designer Rand Holub created in 1950 and that was subsequently captured in Intertype's typeface Monterey (1958). Some letterforms were redrawn from vintage American magazine ads (some by Holub himself), Cuisine (2008, food advertising script), Pronto (2008, comic book style, by Alejandro Paul and Angel Koziupa), Grover (2004, rounded sans family), Grover Slab (2004).

Speaker at ATypI 2010 in Dublin where he introduced the Gering project. I cite: Based on a close analysis of typefaces created by Ulrich Gering at the Atelier de la Sorbonne and the Soleil d'Or workshop in the 1470s, the first typefaces produced in France, postgraduate students Timm Borg, Anthony Dathy, Perrine Saint Martin and Ok Kyung Yoon have been working on a versatile, modern font family for the last 2 years under the guidance and watchful eyes of André Baldinger and Philippe Millot. Focusing on two of Gering's designs --- a sturdy roman font that closely imitates the texture of blackletter and a roman with blackletter influences --- the EnsadLab team has developed a complete family, reviving the work of the father of the printed word in France and bringing together aesthetics rarely seen in such an ensemble. Working only a few hundred metres from the original site of Gering's workshop they have thoroughly reworked the letterforms found in the extant incunabula available in the Bibliothèque Nationale, complementing the original characters with italics, small caps, and supplementary weights, as well as all of the glyphs necessary in a 21st century font.

Andrew Byrom was born in Liverpool, England in 1971. After Graduating from the University of East London in 1996 he opened his own design studio and worked for various clients including Penguin Books, The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters, The Industrial Design Centre, Time Out Online and The Guardian Newspaper. Around this time he also began teaching graphic design at The University of Luton and Central Saint. Martins. Byrom moved to the USA in 2000 to teach at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL. He has recently been commissioned to design typefaces and type treatments for Elle Decoration, The New York Times Magazine, McGraw-Hill, and Turner Classic Movies. In 2006 he moved to Long Beach to take up an Associate Professor position at California State University, where he is currently the Area Head of the Graphic Design Department. He created the experimental typeface Interiors (2002), about which AIGA writes: Interiors (3D type) is a collaboration between type designer Andrew Byrom and designer Joel Wolter. It was originally conceived as a digital font (Interiors) and was inspired by an old wooden chair in Byrom's office that, when looked at from a certain angle, resembled the letter h. Using the three-dimensional principles of this simple form, and closely adhering to type design conventions, 26 letters of the alphabet were drawn and generated as a font. The characters were then constructed in three dimensions using tubular steel into full-scale furniture frames. Because the underlying design concept is typographical, the end result becomes almost freestyle furniture design. Letters like m, n, o, b and h can be viewed as simple tables and chairs, but other letters, like e, g, a, s, t, v, x and z, become beautifully abstract pieces of furniture. He also made the distressed font Bloodclot, the stencil family Byro Stencil (free), Byro Sans, 1byrosquare (2000), 2byroround (2000), ByroBlock Stencil (2000, stencil), Concussion (dot matrix with various size dots), Easy Vie, Venetian (2009, like Venetian blinds), Fresh (1995, scratchy type), Ply, Rage, St. Auden, Bandaid (2006), 3D Dot Matrix. He divides his time between teaching, designing for various clients and playing with his sons, Auden and Louis. He has recently been commissioned to design typefaces and type treatments for Elle Decoration, The New York Times Magazine, McGraw-Hill, and Turner Classic Movies. In 2006 he moved to Long Beach to take up an Associate Professor position at California State University, where he is currently the Area Head of the Graphic Design Department.

Arktype (was: Atelier René Knip)
Dutch type designer located in Bloemendaal. Jan Middendorp wrote about him in A.R.K. Ten Years of Type Related Projects 1994-2004 (2004), summarizing Knip's work at Atelier René Knip, mostly experiments in type design. Knip (b. 1963) is a graduate from the St. Joost Academy in Breda, class of 1990. Since 1992, Knip has operated a design studio in Amsterdam, Atelier René Knip.
Recently, Knip and his brother Edgar formed a new company, Gebroeders Knip, which produces furniture and accessories in which letterforms are integral parts of the objects design.
One of his experiments, a unicase typeface with an Arabic feel, was digitized by Nick Curtis as Turban Hey NF (2008).
In October 2012, Knip and another Dutch designer cofounded Arktype, but by 2020, the other Dutch designer left that company.

Baron von Fonthausen
Jacques Le Bailly (b. Thionville, France, 1975) is the "Baron von Fonthausen", located in Den Haag, and the self-proclaimed German-French specialist in the fields of both beer and type design. From 1999 to 2003, Le Bailly lived in Berlin, working at Moniteurs graphic design studio and as an independent graphic designer. Having returned to the Netherlands in 2003, Jacques did type production work for The Enschedé Font Foundry. He is now a typographic designer at Bau Winkel's studio in The Hague. He worked for type foundries like Lineto, Monotype, House Industries, and Bold Monday, as well as on custom projects for several brand design agencies. He has been teaching at the WdKA art academy in Rotterdam and Sint Joost in Den Bosch.
Sardines (2008, Vette Letters) is described by Jan Middendorp as an amusing parade of heavyweight characters crammed into squares. In 2010, that monospaced family was expanded to VLNL Neue Sardines (42 styles).
Designer of the pixel font Mekka.
Macula (2010) is a trompe l'oeuil typeface that is available from Bold Monday. It was inspired by Oscar Reutersvärd's impossible perspectives and M.C. Escher's optical illusions.
In 2016, Jacques Le Bailly extended Vernon Adams's Nunito (2011) to a full set of weights, and an accompanying regular non-rounded terminal version, Nunito Sans, which is free at Google Fonts and Open Font Library.
In 2018, he designed the free family Crimson Pro (a major update of Sebastian Kosch's Crimson from 2011) and VLNL Thueringer (at Vette Letters), and wrote: Jacques got inspired by Albrecht Düer's 15th century Fraktur (blackletter) alphabet, and decided to design a contemporary rounded version of it. It's a modern techno-style blackletter with a (beer)truckload of interesting design details.
In 2019, he released the free font Livvic. Livvic is a 16-style custom corporate sans typeface designed by Jacques Le Bailly for LV (Liverpool Victoria Friendly Society Limited), an insurance company based in the UK. The typeface is part of a brand redesign.
In 2020, Jacques Le Bailly, Cereal and Vernon Adams (posthumously) released the sans typeface family Mulish at Google Fonts. Mulish is a minimalist sans, designed for both display and text typography. It was initially drawn in 2011 by Vernon Adams and then refined until 2014. In 2017 the family was updated by Jacques Le Bailly to complete the work started by Vernon after he passed away, in collaboration with his wife Allison, an artist who holds the trademark on the typeface family name. In August 2019, it was updated with a variable font weight axis.
Behance link. Bold Monday link. %Z Liebe Petra, Die Site ist jetzt erstmal dafür gemacht, um Leuten zu zeigen was ich gerade mache. Leider sind die meisten der gezeigten Fonts noch nicht ganz fertig und werden deshalb noch nicht angeboten. neben Schriftgestaltung, mache ich auch noch Grafik-Design. Im Moment arbeite an der Font TyPress, die bei der 1. Ausgabe folgende Schnitte enthalten wird: Roman, Italic, Bold, Bold-Italic, Caps-Roman and Caps-Bold. Unsicher ist noch wo, oder von wem sie vertrieben werden. Der Font B-Day wird 1 Schnitt haben und wenn alles gut geht, wird sie ab Februar 2002 von Lineto (www.lineto.de) verkauft. Wenn Sie interessiert sind an meinen Entwürfen, oder z.B. an Custom-Type, fragen Sie bitte nach. Oder, wenn Sie gerne sehen möchten, wie meine Schriften im Druck aussehen, kann ich Ihnen ein PDF schicken. Freundlichen Grüsse, Greetings, Baron von Fonthausen, auch Jacques Le Bailly [Google] [MyFonts] [More] ⦿

Designer of the multistyle free monospaced octagonal and pixel font family Bedstead (2017), covering, Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew, mathematics, and a slew of other things. He explains: Bedstead is an outline font based on the characters produced by the Mullard SAA5050 series of Teletext Character Generators. The SAA5050 is familiar to those of a certain age as the chip that produced the MODE 7 display on the BBC Microcomputer. It generates characters from a 5x9 pixel matrix, smoothing diagonal lines to produce an interlaced 10x18 matrix for each character. Bedstead extends that algorithm to continuity, converting a 5x9 pixel grid into an outline with smooth diagonals. [Google] [More] ⦿

In 2020, they released the free typeface family SYN Nova, which includes additional styles and a variable font.
Machalski likes old wood types, which inspired him in 2012 to publish a wood type collection of weathered display typefaces: Condom, Hype, Whore, Banger, Buka. Elo (2012) and Duce (2012) are fat weathered wood types.
Typefaces made in 2013: Wood Type Collection 2 (which includes Brie, Kaszti, Mader, Modi, Rena, Roast, Ursus), Zigfrid (headline face), Salute (letterpress style), Benito (a letterpress or geometric wood typeface), Bojo (heavy wood style poster face), Picadilly (heavily inktrapped open counter sans family), GIT (a manly headline sans), Lito (an eroded poster typeface), Haine (vernacular caps), Aneba (an organic sans family, renewed in 2016 as Aneba Neue), Vitali (sans), Korpo Serif (slab serif), Korpo Sans (elliptical family; +Greek, +Cyrillic).

Typefaces from 2017: Nocturne Serif, Massimo (copperplate semi-serif influenced by New York; originally called Madison, they were frced to change the name to Massimo), Magiel Pro (a geometric display family influenced by Polish banners from the Russian occupatuon era, 1945-1989; it has a charming Black and a hairline, and covers Cyrillic too).
A particularly intriguing project in 2017 was Bona, which set out to revive and extend Andrzej Heidrich's old typeface Bona. Mateusz Machalski contacted him for advice on the revival project. The resulting typeface families were published by and are available from Capitalics. The centerpiece is the warm and wonderful text typeface Bona Nova.

In 2018, Mateusz Machalski, Borys Kosmynka and Przemek Hoffer co-designed the six-style antiqua typeface family Brygada 1918, which is based on a font designed by Adam Poltawski in 1918. Free download from the Polish president's site. The digitization was made possible after Janusz Tryzno acquired the fonts from Poltawski's estate. The official presentation of the font took place in the Polish Presidential Palace, in presence of the (right wing, ultra-conservative, nationalist, law and order) President of Poland, Andrzej Duda. Calling it a national typeface, the president assured the designers that he would use Brygada 1918 in his office. It will be used for diplomas and various other official forms. In 2021, with Anna Wielunska added to the list of authors, it was added as a variable font covering Latin, Greek and Cyrillic to Google Fonts. Github link.

Carnoky Design (or Carnoky Type) is run by Samuel Carnoky in Kosice (and before that, Kluknava), Slovakia. He created these fonts: LECO 1988 (2011, a display sans based on lettering a LECO bottle from 1988), 2D3D Molcak (2010, octagonal), Samo Sans (whose Samo Sans Pro version from 2012 covers all weights from hairline to ultra black), LECO 1983 (poster face), LECO 1976 (squarish pixelish family), Arcus (2010, a free rounded type family).
In 2012, he designed Technik (completely constructed from geometric elements).
In 2014, Carnoky published the squarish modular typeface family Corner, which is split into subfamilies called A (pixelish), B (octagonal), C and D.
In 2015, Carnoky's talent and energy were rewarded by his splendid 42-style text family, Inka, which has subfamilies with larger x-height (A) and smaller x-height (B), and is characterized by daring vertical butcher cuts in letters such as a, c and italic f.
Typefaces from 2016: Normatica (a neutral typeface inspired by advertising letters used as letterings on shop windows during period of normalization (1960-1990) in former Czechoslovakia).

With just one name (the other one was lost in an accident!), Chester, the type designer, was born in Montreal in 1971. In 1995 Chester moved to Chicago to work with Rick Valicenti and eventually become a partner in his digital type foundry, Thirstype. In 2004, he started up the type coop Village in New York together with his wife and partner, tracy Jenkins. Chester's published designs have been used for branding programs including AT&T, Starwood Hotels, CBS Television, Nike, the San Francisco Ballet, Columbia University Business School, and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. He has created bespoke typefaces for Blackberry, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, and the National Football League.

Chicago is Apple's original screen font, designed in 1983 by Susan Kare. Alissa Walker a writer in Los Angeles, analyzes this design. She writes: It was square, squat, and inherently cute. It was friendly. It was easy to use. I'm talking about the beige box with the blue grinning typeface that came to live with us in 1985. But I'm also talking about the font that came with it. It was the typeface Chicago that spelled out "Welcome to Macintosh," ushering us into a new age of personal computing. But it was also a new age for digital type. Here was a typeface created explicitly for the Macintosh, part of designer Susan Kare's strategy to customize everything from the characters to the icons---that happy computer, the wristwatch, an actual trashcan---to make it feel more human and less machine. Most of us couldn't quite put our finger on what made these letters so different. But the secret was in the spaces between the letters. Chicago was one of the first proportional fonts, which meant that instead of each character straining to fill up pixels in a specified rectangle, the letters were allowed to take up as much or little space as they needed. It was more like a book than a screen. For the thousands of families who brought this radical new technology into our homes, Chicago helped us feel like the Mac was already speaking our language. Maybe it was because I was so used to it greeting me, guiding me through every decision---chirping up in a dialogue box confirming that I did, indeed, want to shut down. But when I began writing on the computer, at age 8, Chicago was the typeface I used. I was mostly writing poems about trees during this period, and I'd bring the text into MacPaint where I could illustrate them using Kare's paintbrush icon, sweeping the page with basket-weave patterns and single-pixel polka dots. Sometimes I'd click over and scroll through the available typefaces---New York, Geneva, Monaco---and reject each one not only on looks, but on principle. As a kid growing up in suburban St. Louis, Chicago was the only place on the list I had been. Eventually, Apple retired Chicago, commissioning a new typeface, Charcoal, as a kind of homage to Chicago's functionality. But I would be reunited with Chicago one last time: Due to its excellent readability at low resolution, Chicago was the font used on the black-and-white screen of the very first iPod. Once again, it was the typeface to welcome early adopters. Those of us who'd learned to type on a Mac were greeted by a familiar font on our first portable music players, cheerily guiding us as we spun the clickwheels in wonderment. For its newest operating system, released this year, Apple chose Helvetica Neue. It is a choice meant to graduate us into yet another new world, of Retina displays in glassy tablets, where style wins out over substance. This world is also generic and cold. I type thousands of words into my screen every day, rarely pausing to specifically mourn the loss of Chicago. But I often wonder what happened to that smiling computer who used to greet me from the other side of the screen. [Google] [More] ⦿

Christian Schwartz was born in 1977 in East Washington, NH, and grew up in a small town in New Hampshire. He attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he graduated in 1999 with a degree in Communication Design. After graduation, he spent three months as the in-house type designer at MetaDesign Berlin, under the supervision of Erik Spiekermann. In January 2000, he joined Font Bureau. Near the end of 2000, he founded Orange Italic with Chicago-based designer Dino Sanchez, and left Font Bureau in August 2001 to concentrate full-time on developing this company. Orange Italic published the first issue of their online magazine at the end of 2001 and released their first set of typefaces in the beginning of 2002. Presently, he is an independent type designer in New York City, and has operated foundries like Christian Schwartz Design and Commercial Type (the latter since 2009). He has designed commercial fonts for Emigre, FontShop, House Industries and Font Bureau as well as proprietary designs for corporations and publications. In 2005, Orange Italic joined the type coop Village.

Christina Schultz works as a freelance designer in London and Berlin. Her current focus is on iconography and intelligent fonts. Recent projects include logo, corporate and web design. She graduated from Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design with an MA in Communication Design in January 2005. At ATypI 2005 in Helsinki, she spoke about Piclig (for picture ligature), an intelligent OpenType font, which makes it possible to create symbols out of letters. These letters, when typed in a specific order, merge automatically and form picture ligatures. To achieve this replacement, piclig uses OpenType's contextual character substitution. The font contains a library of 112 symbols which are encoded not as images, but as characters. Piclig occupies little disk space, which is important in applications such as mobile phones. FF PicLig (2005, Fontshop). FF Piclig won an award at TDC2 2006.
Creator (b. 1984) of the handwriting fonts Daubed (2008), Freihand (2008) and Kaunitz (2008).
