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.

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.

In 2013, he published the athletic lettering family High School USA and the octagonal typeface UA Cadet.

Adobe's pixel fonts

Adobe's pixel fonts can be found at Godbitar in Sweden. I was unaware of this collection, so it is probably a case in which the designers "forgot" to remove the Adobe copyright line.

In 2016, at Lost Type, she designed the 8-weight sans typeface family Tofino, which is advertized as a west Coast Swiss. I hope that the name will stick, but surely, Greg Nicholls (designer of an earlier typeface called Tofino) and the foundry Tofino Type in Kelowna, BC, can't be too thrilled. Cargocollective link.

Alejandro Paul

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.

His work there includes Tierra (a titling face), Latinaires (originally called Latina Sans), Reflex, Downtempo (2003), Stardust and Mosaico (1999, pixel face).

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.

For children's orthography, he developed Estrada Hand, on commission for Editorial Estrada. He was working on the serif family Libertina (2004).

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.

Alphabet Design
[Boris Mahovac]

Boris Mahovac is a great Croatian designer. He founded Alphabet Design in Oakville, Ontario. One of his famous fonts is the kitchen tile typeface Kalendar (1995).

Other creations: Pixelina, Borek, Duckling, Fat Trace, Kloi (now Kloi BT (2004)), Tabita BT (2005, an informal font), and the great patterns of the Symbols font, JechoTecho.

From the web site: He started working with digital fonts back in the days of bitmap fonts, sometime in 1988. At that time the studio operated in Zagreb, (former) Yugoslavia, which later became the capital of independent Croatia, under the name PixelPrint. The name changed to Abeceda Dizajn in 1992 while establishing itself as a successful typographic studio that specialized in font localization and type consulting. Abeceda Dizajn studio was the official distributor and manufacturer for Bitstream Inc. for Croatia and Slovenia from 1995 until 1997, when it relocated to Canada. Today, Alphabet Design is again a Bitstream re-seller.

In 2005, Bitstream published Kloi, Borhand Tabitha, Duckling, as well as JechoTecho1 (the latter typeface was made by Evzen Jecho). Alphabet Design is donating all its proceeds of January 2005 to tsunami aid. In 2005, cartoonist Branimir Zlamalik created Smiles (dingbats) and Ulixa (comic book family).

amb+
[André Baldinger]

André Baldinger is the Swiss typographer and type designer (b. 1963) who made the Newut (1996, all letters of equal size, and thus a semi-unicase) and the B-Dot (pixel) families (1998). His outfit in Lausanne is called amb+. In 1994, he graduated from the Atélier National de Création Typographique (ANCT) in Paris. Since 1995, he teaches typography at the École supérieure d'arts visuels de Lausanne. He lives in Paris. Together with Philippe Millot, he heads the type design unit of the Creation and Innovation Research Centre (EnsadLab) at ENSAD Paris. He teaches typography and type design at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (ENSAD) and the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). He was involved in projects such as the logotype for the Cité Universitaire and a custom type for the Eiffel tower. He also digitized the Frutiger-Hunziker typeface CGP (used in the Centre Georges Pompidou, originally designed in 1974) in 1997.

The full list of his typefaces: AB BaldingerPro Font, AB BDot Font, AB BLine Font, AB CiteInter Font, AB Eiffel Font, AB Newut Font.

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 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.

Andreu Balius Planelles

Born in Barcelona in 1962, Andreu Balius studied Sociology in the Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona (1980-1984), and graphic design at IDEP in Barcelona (1985-1989). He holds a PhD in Design from the University of Southampton (UK). He founded Garcia Fonts&Co in Barcelona in 1993 to show his experimental designs. He cofounded Typerware in 1996 with Joancarles P. Casasín. Typerware existed until 2001 and was based in Santa Maria de Martorelles, a village near Barcelona. He cofounded Type Republic (see also here), and ran Andreu Balius (tipo)graphic design. He is presently an associate professor at Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona.

Balius won a Bukvaraz 2001 award for Pradell. Pradell also won an award at the TDC2 Type Directors Club's Type Design Competition 2002. SuperVeloz (codesigned with Alex Trochut) won an award at the TDC2 2005 type competition.

At ATypI 2005 in Helsinki, he spoke on Pradell and Super-Veloz. Speaker at ATypI 2006 in Lisbon. At ATypI 2009 in Mexico City, he spoke about the Imprenta Real. Coorganizer of ATypI 2014 in Barcelona.

Andrew Byrom

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.

Apple Fonts

Alternate URL. The history of all fonts used and produced by Apple. A brief summary of this:

  • Corporate fonts and brand identity
    • Motter Tektura (designed by Othmar Motter of Voralberger Graphic in 1975): before the first Macintosh, Apple used Motter Tektura to accompany the Apple logo. "According to the logo designer, Rob Janoff, the typeface was selected for its playful qualities and techno look, in line with Apple's mission statement of making high-technology accessible to anyone."
    • Apple Garamond, the new corporate font used when the Macintosh was introduced in 1984. ITC Garamond (Tony Stan, 1977) was condensed to 80% of its normal width by Bitstream, who also adjusted and hinted it. Apple Garamond was used in most of Apple's marketing. The Wikipedia comment: "Many typographers consider ITC Garamond in general, and Apple Garamond in particular, to be poorly designed typefaces. A common viewpoint is that the algorithmic scaling distorted the typeface."
    • Myriad Pro: starting in 2002, Apple began using Myriad Pro Semibold (a sans serif face) in its marketing, gradually replacing Apple Garamond. MyriadPro and MyriadApple can be downloaded here.
    • Gill Sans Regular: used in the marketing of the Newton PDA.
  • Fonts of the original Macintosh All but one of these bitmap fonts were due to Susan Kare. The fonts were originally named after stops along the Paoli, Pennsylvania commuter train line: Overbrook, Merion, Ardmore, and Rosemont. Later, under pressure from Steve Jobs, names of world cities were chosen. A number of different variants of each font were algorithmically generated on-the-fly from the standard fonts. Bold, italic, outlined, underlined and shadowed variations were the most common.
    • Cairo: a bitmap dingbat font, most famous for the dogcow at the 'z' character position.
    • Chicago (sans-serif): the default Macintosh system font in System 17.6.
    • Geneva (sans-serif): designed for small point sizes and prevalent in all versions of the Mac user interface.
    • London (blackletter): an Old English-style font.
    • Los Angeles (script): a thin font that emulated handwriting.
    • Monaco (sans-serif, monospaced): a fixed-width font well-suited for 912 pt use.
    • New York (serif): a Times Roman-inspired font.
    • San Francisco: a ransom note face.
    • Venice (script): a calligraphic font designed by Bill Atkinson.
  • Fonts in Mac OS X
    • Lucida Grande: the primary system font in Mac OS X (all versions). Lucida Grande looks like Lucida Sans, but has more glyphs. It covers Roman, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Arabic, Thai and Greek. Many of its 2800+ glyphs were added by Michael Everson to the original collection.
    • Mac OS X ships with a number of high-quality typefaces, for a number of different scripts, licensed from several sources.
    • LastResort (designed by Michael Everson of Evertype): used by the system to display reference glyphs in the event that real glyphs needed to display a given character are not found in any other available font. Wikipedia states: "The glyphs are square with rounded corners with a bold outline. In the left and right sides of the outline, the Unicode range that the character belongs to is given using hexadecimal digits. Top and bottom are used for one or two descriptions of the Unicode block name. A symbol representative of the block is centered inside the square. By Everson's design, the typeface used for the text cut-outs in the outline is Chicago, otherwise not included with Mac OS X. The LastResort font has been part of Mac OS since version 8.5, but the limited success of ATSUI on the classic Mac OS means that only users of Mac OS X are regularly exposed to it."
    • Apple Symbols: a dingbat font that complements the symbols from Lucida Grande, inttroduced first in Mac OS X 10.3 ("Panther").
    • Zapfino (a calligraphic typeface designed by and named after renowned typeface designer Hermann Zapf for Linotype, based on an example he first drew in 1944): Zapfino utilizes the most advanced typographic features of the truetype format, and is partially included in OS X as a technology demo for ligatures and character substitutions.
    • Mac OS X Snow Leopard comes with four new fonts in 2009: Chalkduster (emulating chalk on a blackboard), Menlo (a monospaced family based on Bitstream's Vera Sans Mono that replaces Monaco for applications such as Terminal and code editors; see also Deja Vu Sans Serif Mono), Heiti SC and TC and Hiragino Sans GB.
  • Fonts used in other devices
    • Espy Sans: designed in 1993 by Apple's Human Interface Group designed the typeface Espy Sans specifically for on-screen use. It was first used for the Newton OS GUI and later integrated into Apple's eWorld online service.
    • eWorld Tight: a bitmap font used for headlines in Apple's eWorld. The metrics of eWorld Tight were based on Helvetica Ultra Compressed.
    • Chicago (see above): bitmap typeface used in Apple's iPod music player since 2001.

About Creighton: It was our initial intention to develop a suitable lowercase for Les Usherwood's Elston typeface, based on a few characters from an old German typeface called Hermes Grotesque (Woellmer, Berlin). However, the new design quickly took on a life of its own, and we decided to call it Creighton. A crisper version of Creighton is Megaphone (2009).

Typefaces from 2010, all with Steve Jackaman at Red Rooster: Shamus (uncial), Ryder Gothic Pro (a revival of Roslyn Gothic by Harry Winters, 1972), Pickworth Old Style Pro (rustic), Wurlitzer Pro (slab serif), Eden Pro (based on the original 1934 Ludlow drawings by Robert Hunter Middleton), Connemara Old Style (uncial), Overtime LCD Pro (LED simulation face), Phosphate Pro (Solid and Inline).

Typefaces from 2011, still with Steve Jackaman at Red Rooster: Phoenix Pro (after the condensed artistic sans called Phenix by Morris Fuller Benton, 1935, ATF), Guildford Pro (+Light, +Medium, +Titling; after Stephenson Blake's Guildford Sans, which in turn was identical to the 1928-1929 typeface by Hans Möhring called Elegant Grotesque), Granby Elephant (after the fat grotesk typeface Granby by Stephenson Blake, 1930), Franklin Gothic Pro (after Morris Fuller Benton's original from 1903), Windlesham (2011, a basic sans family), Relish (2011, another basic sans family), Rocklidge Pro (2011, with Ashley Muir; based on Jana (Richard D. Juenger, VGC, 1965), Packard New Style and Packard Old Style (2011, with Steve Jackaman, after Packard by Oswald Cooper (1913) and Morris Fuller Benton (1916, ATF).

In 2006, Astigmatic published their typewriter collection, which includes Military Document, Bank Statement, State Evidence Small Caps, State Evidence, Urgent telegram, Library Report, Overdrawn Account, Customs Paperwork, Incoming Fax and Office Memorandum.

From the bio and various pieces of information, one is led to believe that Brian was born in Poland, and now lives in Miami, but that may be wrong.

In 2010, he placed a free font at the Google Directory, Syncopate. Along the same lines, we find the derived square serif typeface Stint Ultra Condensed (2011, Google Web Fonts) and Stint Ultra Expanded (2012).

Typefaces from 2013: Freckle Face (grunge), Grand Hotel, Purple Purse (Purple Purse draws its inspiration from a vintage Ivory Soap ad from the 1950's. Somewhat of a cross between Bodoni and Pixie, this font finds that it never truly takes itself seriously).

Jacques Le Bailly (b. 1975) is the "Baron von Fonthausen", located in Den Haag. He is working for type foundries like Lineto, Monotype, House Industries, and Bold Monday, as well as on custom projects for several brand design agencies. He started working for The Enschedé Type Foundry as a type designer, and has been teaching at the WdKA art academy in Rotterdam and Sint Joost in Den Bosch. He was working on commercial fonts such as Ballpoint, TyPress, Ballpoint, B-Day and Sardines-Light. 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.

Ben Harris

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 2012, they published the trompe l'oeuil typeface Macula (Jacques Le Bailly) which is based on designs by Oscar Reutersvärd.

In 2013, he published Pinup Dotted (a textured typeface) and Oskar. They write: Oskar, designed by Paul van der Laan, is a typeface inspired by Dutch architectural and advertising lettering from the early 20th century. Particularly the style of lettering that was painted on walls and shopfronts, or executed in metal on buildings. This kind of typography did not exist as metal printing types, but was instead painted manually by sign painters, or drawn by architects. Initially the typeface was designed in 2002 for the lettering of a monumental school in The Hague, designed by architect Jan Duiker in 1929.

GE Inspira Sans and Serif (Mike Abbink, Paul van der Laan and Pieter van Rosmalen, Bold Monday) won an award in the TDC 2015 Type Design competition.

Pieter designed custom typefaces for worldwide clients amongst others Agis, Audi, Teldesign, KPN, The government of South Korea (road signing), The Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management (OV Chipcard), USA Today (Futura Today, 2012, with Paul van der Laan), and NBC Universal. For Holland Festival in 2014, Paul Van der Laan designed the stencil typeface HF Stencil (in collaboration with design studio Thonik, Amsterdam, and Diana Ovezea), a design inspired by Glaser Stencil.

Borutta
[Mateusz Machalski]

Borutta is the creative studio of über-talented Warsaw-based designer Mateusz Machalski (b. 1989), a graduate of Wydziale Grafiki ASP in 2014, and of Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. His oeuvre is simply irresistible, charming and a worthy representative of the Polish poster style---witness Alergia (2016), Magiel Pro (2017) and Madiso (2017).

He is the creator of the blackletter-inspired typeface Raus (2012), which also could pass for a Cyrillic simulation font. It was possibly made with Pawel Wypych. He also made Kebab (2012, a fat caps face), Duce (2012, art deco: withdrawn from MyFonts after Charles Borges complained that it was a rip-off of his own Gloria), Fikus (2012), Woodie (2012, a condensed rough wood type face), Polon (2012), Aurora (2012, a German expressionist poster face), Musli (monoline connected script), HWDP (2012, poster font), Wieczorek Script (2012, hand-printed), Hamlet (2012, a sword and dagger typeface, renamed to Prince), Caryca (2012, Cyrillic simulation, done with Pawel Wypych), Bezerro (2012, poster face), Bitmach (2012, pixel face), Meat Script (2012, a caps only market signage brush script), Krac (2012, a tall poster font), Hermes (2012: Ten Dollar Fonts), Berg (2012, a roughened blackletter face), Buldog (2012), Dudu (2012, tall condensed face).

In 2012, Polish designer Wojciech Freudenreich and Mateusz Machalski combined forces to design the techno typeface SYN.

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 2014: Adagio Slab, Adagio Serif, Adagio Sans (a superfamily not to be confused with the 2006 typeface Adagio Pro by Profonts), Adagio Sans Script, Adagio Serif Script, Adagio Slab Script, Tupperware Pro. Tupper Pro (42 styles) was designed by Mateus Machalski and the RR Donnelley team.

Typefaces from 2015: Tupper Serif (again with RR Donnelley: a superfamily for pairing Latin, Cyrillic, Hebrew an Greek), Vitali Neue, Legato Serif, Corpo Serif, Corpo Sans, Zigfrid, Picadilly (a great ink-trapped sans typeface family with an erect g).

Typefaces from 2016: Nocturne (just like Magiel, this free typeface was designed as part of the Warsaw Types project: this wedge serif text typeface is inspired by the lettering on stone tablets commemorating the victims of World War II, and prewar Jewish shop signage), Favela (an experimental, geometric sans, for headline and fashion magazine use), Gangrena (a weathered typeface system codesigned with Ania Wielunska), Migrena Grotesque (earlier named Enigma Grotesque but probably in view of a clash with the name Enigma used by Jeremy Tankard cganged to the appropriately named Migrena Grotesque), Alergia Grotesk (a take on the classical geometric grotesque style, in 60 weights, for Latin, Greek and Cyrillic), Alergia Remix (a hipster / hacker font take on Alergia Grotesque).

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).

[Jeroen Krielaars]

Jeroen Krielaars (Calango) is a Dutch web designer in Amsterdam who made an animated prismatic geometric typeface called Moshun (2010). Krielaars created Moshun using the program Adobe After Effects in less than three days. Buy it exclusively from HypeForType.

Chicago

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

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.

His presentations. At ATypI 2004 in Prague, he spoke about "The accidental text face". At ATypI 2006 in Lisbon, he and Paul Barnes explained the development of a 200-style font family for the Guardian which includes Guardian Egyptian and Guardian Sans. FontShop's page on his work. Bio at Emigre. At ATypI 2007 in Brighton, he was awarded the Prix Charles Peignot. Jan Middendorp's interview in October 2007.

FontShop link. Font selection at MyFonts.

A partial list of his creations:

  • FF Bau (2001-2004): Art direction by Erik Spiekermann. Released by FontShop International. He says: Bau is based on Grotesk, a typeface released by the Schelter&Giesecke typefoundry in Leipzig, Germany at the end of the 19th century and used prominently by the designers at the Bauhaus. Each weight was drawn separately, to give the family the irregularity of the original, and the Super is new.
  • Neutraface (2002, House Industries) and Neutraface Condensed (2004). Art directed by Ken Barber and Andy Cruz. Schwartz states: Neutraface was an ambitious project to design the most typographically complete geometric sans serif family ever. We didn't have many actual samples of the lettering that the Neutras used on their buildings, so it ended up taking a lot of interpretation. There was no reference for the lowercase, so it's drawn from scratch, looking at Futura, Nobel, and Tempo for reference. Stephen Coles reports: Reminiscent of the recent FB Relay and HTF Gotham, Neutraface is an exaggerated Nobel with nods to Bauhaus and architectural lettering. Yes, and maybe Futura? Maggie Winters, Ioana Dumitrescu, Nico Köckritz, Nico Kockritz and Michelle Regna made great Neutraface posters.
  • Neutraface No. 2 (2007), discussed by Stephen Coles: By simply raising Neutrafaces low waist, most of that quaintness is removed in No. 2, moving the whole family (which is completely mixable) toward more versatile, workhorse territory. This release is surely Houses response to seeing so many examples of Neutraface standardized by its users. Also new is an inline version. Who doesn't love inline type? It so vividly recalls WPA posters and other pre-war hand lettering. There are other heavy, inlined sans serifs like Phosphate, but one with a full family of weights and text cuts to back it up is very appealing. A typophile states: Designed by Christian Schwartz for House Industries, Neutraface captures the 1950s stylings of architect Richard Neutra in a beautiful typeface meant for application on the screen, in print, and in metalwork. If you are ever in need of a classy retro face, they don't get any more polished than this.
  • Farnham (2004, Font Bureau) and Farnham Headline (2006, Schwartzco). Commissioned by Esterson Associates and de Luxe Associates. Winner of an award at TDC2 2004. Based on work by Johannes Fleischman, a German punchcutter who worked for the Enschedé Foundry in Haarlem in the mid-to-late 1700s. Schwartz: Truly part of the transistion from oldstyle (i.e. Garamond) to modern (i.e. Bodoni) Fleischman's romans are remarkable for their energy and "sparkle" on the page, as he took advantage of better tools and harder steel to push the limits of how thin strokes could get. In the 1800s, Fleischman's work fell into obscurity as tastes changed, but interest was renewed in the 1990s as digital revivals were designed by Matthew Carter, the Hoefler Type Foundry, and the Dutch Type Library, each focusing on a different aspect of the source material. I think the DTL version is the most faithful to the source, leaving the bumps and quirks inherent to metal type untouched. I've taken the opposite approach, using the source material as a starting point and trying to design a very contemporary text typeface that uses the basic structure and character of Fleischman without duplicating features that I found outdated, distracting, or unttatractive (i.e., the extra "spikes" on the capital E and F, or the form of the y).
  • FF Unit (2003-2004, Fontshop, designed with Erik Spiekermann). A clean and blocky evolution of FF Meta intended as a corporate typeface for the Deutsche Bahn (but subsequently not used).
  • Amplitude (2001-2003, Font Bureau), Amplitude Classified and Amplitude Headline. A newspaper-style ink-trapped sans family, unfortunately given the same name as a 2001 font by Aenigma. Winner of an award at TDC2 2004. The typeface selected by the St Louis Post Dispatch in 2005. One of many agates (type for small text) successfully developed by him. This page explains that they've dumped Dutch 811 and Bodoni and Helvetica and Franklin Gothic and News Gothic (whew!) for various weights of Amplitude, Poynter Old Style Display and Poynter Old Style Text. AmplitudeAubi was designed in 2002-2003 by Schwartz and Font Bureau for the German mag AutoBild.
  • Simian (2001, House Industries): SimianDisplay-Chimpanzee, SimianDisplay-Gorilla, SimianDisplay-Orangutan, SimianText-Chimpanzee, SimianText-Gorilla, SimianText-Orangutan. Designed at Font Bureau. Art Direction by Ken Barber and Andy Cruz. Schwartz: "Although Simian's roots are in Ed Benguiat's logos for the Planet of the Apes movies, Simian wound up veering off in its own direction. The display styles look very techno, and we really went nuts with the ligatures, since this was one of House's first Opentype releases."
  • Publico (2007): A predecessor of Guradian Egyptian. Schwartz writes: During the two year process of designing the typeface that would eventually become Guardian Egyptian, Paul Barnes and I ended up discarding many ideas along the way. Some of them were decent, just not right for the Guardian, including a serif family first called Stockholm, then renamed Hacienda after the legendary club in the Guardian's original home city of Manchester. Everyone involved liked the family well enough, but it didn't fit the paper as the design evolved, and several rounds of reworking left us more and more unsure of what it was supposed to look like. In the summer of 2006, Mark Porter and Esterson Associates were hired to redesign Publico, a major Portuguese daily newspaper, for an early 2007 launch. He asked us to take another look at Hacienda, to see if we might be able to untangle our many rounds of changes, figure out what it was supposed to look like in the first place, and finish it in a very short amount of time. Spending some time away from the typeface did our eyes a world of good. When we looked at it again, it was obvious that it really needed its "sparkle" played up, so we increased the sharpness of the serifs, to play against softer ball terminals, and kept the contrast high as the weight increased, ending up with an elegant and serious family with some humor at its extreme weights. As a Spanish name is not suitable for a typeface for a Portuguese newspaper, Hacienda was renamed once more, finally ending up as Publico. Production and design assistance by Kai Bernau. Commissioned by Mark Porter and Esterson Associates for Publico
  • Austin (2003): Designed by Paul Barnes at Schwartzco. Commissioned by Sheila Jack at Harper's&Queen.
  • Giorgio (2007): Commissioned by Chris Martinez at T, the New York Times Sunday style magazine. Small size versions produced with Kris Sowersby. Not available for relicensing. A high contrast condensed "modern" display typeface related to Imre Reiner's Corvinus. Ben Kiel raves: Giorgio, like the fashion models that it shares space with in T, the New York Times fashion magazine, is brutal in its demands. It is a shockingly beautiful typeface, one so arresting that I stopped turning the page when I first saw it a Sunday morning about a year ago. [...] Giorgio exudes pure sex and competes with the photographs beside it. The designers at T were clearly unafraid of what it demands from the typographer and, over the past year, kept on finding ways to push Giorgio to its limit. Extremely well drawn in its details, full of tension between contrast and grace, it is a typeface that demands to be given space, to be used with wit and courage, and for the typographer to be unafraid in making it the page.
  • Empire State Building (2007): An art deco titling typeface designed with Paul Barnes for Laura Varacchi at Two Twelve Associates. Icons designed by Kevin Dresser at Dresser Johnson. Exclusive to the Empire State Building.
  • Guardian (2004-2005): Commissioned by Mark Porter at The Guardian. Designed with Paul Barnes. Not available for relicensing until 2008. Based on an Egyptian, this 200-style family consists of Guardian Egyptian (the main text face), Guardian Sans, Guardian Text Egyptian, Guardian Text Sans and Guardian Agate.
  • Houston (2003): Commissioned by Roger Black at Danilo Black, Inc., for the Houston Chronicle. Schwartz: As far as I know, this typeface is the first Venetian Oldstyle ever drawn for newspaper text, and only Roger Black could come up with such a brilliant and bizarre idea. The basic structures are based on British Monotype's Italian Old Style, which was based on William Morris's Golden Type. The italic (particularly the alternate italic used in feature sections) also borrows from Nebiolo Jenson Oldstyle, and there is a hint of ATF Jenson Oldstyle in places as well.
  • Popular (2004): Commissioned by Robb Rice at Danilo Black, Inc., for Popular Mechanics. An Egyptian on testosterone.
  • Stag (2005): Commissioned by David Curcurito and Darhil Crooks at Esquire. Yet another very masculine slab serif family. Schwartz writes I showed them a range of slab serifs produced by French and German foundries around 1900-1940, and synthesized elements from several of them (notably Beton, Peignot's Egyptienne Noir, Georg Trump's Schadow, and Scarab) into a new typeface with a very large x-height, extremely short ascenders and descenders, and tight spacing. Also, we find Stag Sans (2007, Village) and Stag Dot (2008, Village).
  • Fritz (1997, Font Bureau). Schwartz: "Fritz is based on various pieces of handlettering done in the early 20th century by Ozwald Cooper, a type designer and lettering artist best known for the ubiquitous Cooper Black. Galapagos Typefoundry's Maiandra and Robusto are based on the same pieces of lettering."
  • Latino-Rumba, Latino-Samba (2000, House Industries). Art Direction by Andy Cruz. Designed with Ken Barber. Jazzy letters based on an earlier design of Schwartz, called Atlas (1993).
  • Pennsylvania (2000, FontBureau). A monospaed family inspired by Pennsylvanian license plates. Schwartz: "Thai type designer Anuthin Wongsunkakon's Keystone State (1999, T26) is based on the exact same source."
  • Luxury (2002, Orange Italic, codesigned with Dino Sanchez). Gold, Platinum and Diamond are the names of the 1930s headline typefaces made (jokingly) for use with luxury items. The six-weight Luxury family at House Industries in 2006, contains three serif text weights called Luxury Text, as well as three display typefaces, called Platinum (art deco), Gold, and Diamond (all caps with triangular serifs).
  • Los Feliz (2002, Emigre). Based on handlettered signs found in LA.
  • Unfinished typefaces: Masthead, Reform, Bitmaps, Bilbao, Boyband, Addison, Elektro, Sandbox, Vendôme, Bailey.
  • Fonts drawn in high school: Flywheel (1992, FontHaus), Atlas (1993, FontHaus, a "a fairly faithful revival of Potomac Latin, designed in the late 1950s for PhotoLettering, Inc"), Elroy (1993, FontHaus), ElroyExtrasOrnaments, Hairspray (1993, "a revival of Steinweiss Scrawl, designed in the mid-1950s by Alex Steinweiss, best known for his handlettered record covers": HairsprayBlonde, HairsprayBrunette, HairsprayPix, HairsprayRedhead), Twist (1994, Precision Type and Agfa), Zombie (1995, Precision Type and Agfa), Morticia (1995, Agfa/Monotype), Gladys (1996, an unreleased revival of ATF's turn-of-the-century Master Script).
  • Ant&Bee&Art Fonts (1994-1995): three dingbat fonts, Baby Boom, C'est la vie, and Raining Cats&Dogs, based on drawings by Christian's aunt, Jill Weber. Released by FontHaus.
  • Digitizations done between 1993-1995: Dolmen (Letraset), Latino Elongated (Letraset), Regatta Condensed (Letraset), Fashion Compressed (Letraset), Jack Regular (Jack Tom), Tempto Openface (Tintin Timen).
  • Hand-tuned bitmap fonts: Syssy, Zimmer's Egyptian, Elizzzabeth, Newt Gothic, Trags X, Tibia, Fibula, Tino, Digest Cyrillic (based on Tal Leming's Digest). Free downloads of the pixel typefaces Newt Gothic, Tibula and Fibia here.
  • At Village and Orange Italic, one can get Local Gothic (2005), now in OpenType, a crazy mix of Helvetica Bold, Futura Extra Bold, Franklin Gothic Condensed and Alternate Gothic No. 2. It is a collection of alternates one can cycle through---thus a for of randomization.
  • FF Oxide (2005), a Bank Gothic style stencil family. FF Oxide Light is free!
  • Graphik (2008), a sans between geometric and grotesk made for thew Wallpaper mag. Kris sSwersby writes: In a sweltering typographic climate that favours organic look-at-me typefaces bursting with a thousand OpenType tricks, Graphik is a refreshing splash of cool rationality. Its serious, pared-back forms reference classic sans serifs but remain thoroughly modern and never get frigid. Any designer worth their salt needs to turn away from the screen&pick up the latest copy of Wallpaper* magazine. There you will find one of the most beautiful, restrained sans serifs designed in a very long time.
  • In 2011, he created a 22-style revival of Helvetica called Neue Haas Grotesk (Linotype), which offers alternates such as a straigt-legged R and a differently-seriffed a. It is based on the original drawings of Miedinger in 1957.
Schwartz also made numerous custom fonts:
  • Houston (2003). Winner of an award at TDC2 2004, a type family done with Roger Black for the Houston Chronicle. Schwartz: This typeface is the first Venetian Oldstyle ever drawn for newspaper text, and only Roger Black could come up with such a brilliant and bizarre idea. The basic structures are based on British Monotype's Italian Old Style, which was based on William Morris's Golden Type.).
  • Popular (2004). A thick-slabbed typeface drawn for Popular Mechanics, commissioned by Robb Rice at Danilo Black, Inc.
  • FF Meta 3 (2003, hairline versions of type drawn by Richard Lipton and Erik Spiekermann).
  • Eero (2003). Based on an unnamed typeface drawn by Eero Saarinen for the Dulles International Airport. Art Directed by Ken Barber and Andy Cruz. Commissioned by House Industries for the Dulles International Airport.
  • ITC Officina Display (2003). The Regular, Bold and Black weights of this typeface were originally developed by Ole Schäfer for Erik Spiekermann's redesign of The Economist in 2000 or 2001. The ITC conglomerate decided to release it in 2003. I revised parts of Ole's fonts, and worked with Richard Lipton to adapt the Light from a version of Officina Light that Cyrus Highsmith had drawn several years earlier for a custom client. I also added more arrows and bullets than anyone could possibly need, but they were fun to draw. Released by Agfa.
  • Symantec (2003). Designed with Conor Mangat based on News Gothic by Morris Fuller Benton (Sans) and Boehringer Serif by Ole Schäfer, based on Concorde Nova by Günter Gerhard Lange (Serif). Advised by Erik Spiekermann. Commissioned by MetaDesign for Symantec Corporation.
  • Harrison (2002). Based on the hand of George Harrison, was commissioned in 2002 by radical.media.
  • Chalet Cyrillic (2002, House Industries).
  • Benton Modern (2001). Based on Globe Century by Tobias Frere-Jones and Richard Lipton. Commissioned by Font Bureau for the Readability Series. Designed at Font Bureau. Microsite.
  • Caslon's Egyptian (2001). Commissioned by Red Herring. Designed at Font Bureau. Around 1816, William Caslon IV printed the first know specimen of a sans serif typeface: W CASLON JUNR LETTERFOUNDER. A complete set of matrices for captials exists in the archives of Stephenson Blake, and Miko McGinty revived these as a project in Tobias Frere-Jones's type design class at Yale. In 1998, Cyrus Highsmith refined Miko's version, giving it a more complete character set for Red Herring magazine. In 2001, they came back for a lowercase and 3 additional weights. I looked at Clarendon and British vernacular lettering (mainly from signs) for inspiration, and came up with a lowercase that does not even pretend to be an accurate or failthful revival.
  • David Yurman (2001). Based on a custom typeface by Fabien Baron. Commissioned by Lipman Advertising for David Yurman. Designed at Font Bureau.
  • Coop Black lowercase (2001). Based on Coop Black by Ken Barber and Coop. Commissioned by House Industries for Toys R Us. Designed at Font Bureau.

  • Guardian Egyptian (2005). A 200-font family by Schwartz and Paul Barnes for The Guardian.
  • In 2007, Schwartz and Spiekermann received a gold medal from the German Design Council for a type system developed fo the Deutsche Bahn (German Railway).
  • Zizou or Clouseau (2011). A reworking (from memory) of Antique Olive (1960, Roger Excoffon). This was published at the end of 2013 as Duplicate (2013, with Miguel Reyes). In three styles, Slab, Sans and Ionic. Commercial Type writes: Christian Schwartz wanted to see what the result would be if he tried to draw Antique Olive from memory. He was curious whether this could be a route to something that felt contemporary and original, or if the result would be a pale imitation of the original. Most of all, he wanted to see what he would remember correctly and what he would get wrong, and what relationship this would create between the inspiration and the result. Though it shares some structural similarities with Antique Olive and a handful of details, like the shape of the lowercase a, Duplicate Sans is not a revival, but rather a thoroughly contemporary homage to Excoffon. Duplicate Sans was finally finished at the request of Florian Bachleda for his 2011 redesign of Fast Company. Bachleda wanted a slab companion for the sans, so Schwartz decided to take the most direct route: he simply added slabs to the sans in a straightforward manner, doing as little as he could to alter the proportions, contrast, and stylistic details in the process. The bracketed serifs and ball terminals that define the Clarendon genre (also known as Ionic) first emerged in Britain in the middle of the 19th century. While combining these structures with a contemporary interpretation of a mid-20th century French sans serif seems counterintutive, the final result feels suprisingly natural. The romans are a collaboration between Christian Schwartz and Miguel Reyes, but the italic is fully Reyes's creation, departing from the sloped romans seen in Duplicate Sans and Slab with a true cursive. Mark Porter and Simon Esterson were the first to use the family, in their 2013 redesign of the Neue Züricher Zeitung am Sonntag. Because the Ionic genre has ll ong been a common choice for text in newspapers, Duplicate Ionic is a natural choice for long texts. Duplicate Ionic won an award at TDC 2014.
  • In 2014, Christian Schwartz and Dino Sanchez codesigned the roman inscriptional typeface Gravitas. The name was already in use by Riccardo de Franceschi (since 2011), Laura Eames (since 2013) and Keith Tricker (since earlier in 2014), so there may be some emails flowing between these type designers. They write: The primary inspiration for Gravitas was Augustea Nova, Aldo Novarese's quirky and spiky Latin interpretation of the Roman inscriptional caps for the Nebiolo Type Foundry, released in a single weight in the 1950s. It's fairly common to see Augustea Open these days, but his lowercase apparently didn't survive the transition to phototype. Many designers have tackled the problem of matching a lowercase to the classical Roman capitals, with decidedly mixed results. The Bold Italic was drawn by Jesse Vega.
  • Early in 2014, Christian Schwartz, Paul Barnes and Miguel Reyes joined forces to create the manly didone typeface family Caponi, which is based on the early work of Bodoni, who was at that time greatly influenced by the roccoco style of Pierre Simon Fournier. It is named after Amid Capeci, who commissioned it in 2010 for his twentieth anniversary revamp of Entertainment Weekly. Caponi comes in Display, Slab and Text subfamilies.

    Also in 2014, Christian designed the custom typeface Poets Electra for the American Academy of Poets. It extends and modifies W.A. Dwiggins's Electra (1940).

  • Tanja (2016). A dot matrix typeface designed by Christian Schwartz and Paul Barnes and based on the monolinear Marian 1554, Tanja began life as the proposed logo for a German publisher.
  • Le Jeune (2016, Greg Gazdowicz, Christian Schwartz and Paul Barnes): a crisp high-contrast fashion mag didone typeface family in Poster, Deck, Text and Hairline sub-styles, with stencils drawn by Gazdowicz. This large typeface family comes in four optical sizes, and was originally developed for Chris Dixon's refresh of Vanity Fair.

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.

After that, he set up Dalton Maag with his wife Liz Dalton. He has built the company into a 40-employee enterprise with offices in London, Boston, Brazil (where the main type designer is Fabio Luiz Haag), Vienna and Hong Kong.

Fonts sold at Fontworks, and through the Bitstream Type Odyssey CD (2001). At the ATypI in 2001 in Copenhagen, he stunned the audience by announcing that he would never again make fonts for the general public. From now on, he would just do custom fonts out of his office in London. And then he delighted us with the world premiere of two custom font families, one for BMW (BMWType, 2000, a softer version of Helvetica, with a more virile "a"; some fonts are called BMWHelvetica), and one for the BMW Mini in 2001 (called MINIType: this family comprises MINITypeRegular-Bold, MINITypeHeadline-Regular, MINITypeHeadline-Bold, MINITypeRegular-Regular).

Other custom typefaces: Tottenham Hotspur (2006), Teletext Signature (by Basten Greenhill Andrews and Dalton Maag), Skoda (Skoda Sans CE by Dalton Maag is based on Skoda Formata by Bernd Möllenstädt and MetaDesign London), UPC Digital, BT (for British Telecommunications), Coop Switzerland (for Coop Schweiz), eircom, Lambeth Council, Tesco (2002), PPP Healthcare, ThyssenKrup (Dalton Maag sold his soul to these notorious arms dealers; TK Type is the name of the house font), Co Headline (2006), Co Text (2006, now a commercial font), Telewest Broadband, Toyota Text and Display (2008), TUIType, HPSans (for Hewlett-Packard, 1997). His custom Vodafone family (sans) (2005) is based on InterFace. In 2011, Dalton Maag created Nokia Pure for Nokia's identity and cellphones, to replace Erik Spiekermann's Nokia Sans (2002). The Nokia Pure typeface has rounder letters, and is simultaneously more legible and more rhythmic.

In 2010, the Dalton Maag team consisted of Bruno Maag and David Marshall as managing and operations directors, and Vincent Connare as production manager. The type designers are Amélie Bonet, Ron Carpenter, Fabio Haag, Lukas Paltram and Malcolm Wooden.

In 2015, Kindle picked Bookerly by Dalton Maag for their typeface.

Interview in 2012 in which he stresses that typefaces should above all be functional.

[David Thometz]

David Thometz (b. Everett, WA, 1966) is a designer in South Jordan, UT (near Salt Lake City) who has produced some fonts for his own projects. In 2004, he moved to Hampton, TN. Typefaces by him include DTD Silvertone Woodtype, DTD Architrave Sans, DTD Tinhorn, DTD Venceremos Latin, DTD Hefeweizen (blackletter, beer bottle font), DTD Architrave (2001), DTD Digita (a great screen font), DTD Seriatim [+ Seriatim Gestalt, + Seriatim Uncial, 2003, + Seriatim Sans, 2003), DTW Erwin (2004, a Venetian newspaper typeface for the Erwin Record, a small, weekly newspaper in the town of Erwin in northeastern Tennessee, based on a cross of Plantin and Cloister), and Erwin Gothic (2007), its companion. About Erwin Gothic, he says: The design of Erwin Gothic is based on a series of German grotesque families from the early 1900s, designed originally by Johannes Wagner and distributed originally by Wagner&Schmidt as Wotan (ca. 1914?), Lessing, Reichsgrotesk and Edel Grotesque; and subsequently reworked and re-released by several foundries under these names as well as names such as Annonce Grotesque (ca. 1912?), Aurora Grotesk (ca. 1928), Neue Aurora Grotesk (1964) and Aura. Anzeigen Grotesk (ca. 1943) appears to be another offspring of these designs.

In 2004, David Thometz Design made its debut at MyFonts with Seriatim (dingbats), Silvertone Woodtype and Hefeweizen.

De La Piedra A La Nave (or: Medialab Prado, or: Manufactura Independiente)

Open source font project. Their first fonts include Serreria Sobre and Serreria Extravagante (2012).

Open Font Library link. Developed in 2012 during a workshop, we read from Ana Carvalho & Ricardo Lafuente (Manufactura Independente) in a piece entitled From Stone to Spaceship, Collaborative type design: The future home of Medialab-Prado, Serrería Belga (Belgian Saw Mill) has its facades decorated with beautiful typography. Taking on the challenge set by Medialab-Prado to liberate these letters from their stone prison and release them to the world, we hosted a three day workshop in Madrid. The premise was to collaboratively design a font, using a fully libre workflow and with no pre-requisites for participation---everyone was invited to join in. We were thrilled to receive this invitation from Medialab-Prado to come to Madrid and work together in a font revival inspired by a building with a rich historical background. The reception to the call was impressive and two days later we closed it having enlisted a total of thirty participants from different backgrounds and coming from different cities in Spain.

At Open Font Library, one can find the free fonts Douar Outline (2011), Sisperdotsize (2014, pixel font), Deuperset (2014, pixel font) and Setperset (2014, pixel font). [Google] [More]  ⦿
