Beta
[Tanawat Sakdawisarak]

Beta is the company of Tanawat Sakdawisarak, a graduate of the Faculty of Visual Communication Arts and Graphic Design at Assumption University in Bangkok. It sells fonts and EPS format typefaces through YWFT, all more or less alchemic in nature.

In 2009, Tanawat designed several Latin and Thai typefaces such as Bedhead Sweet (avant-garde face) and Bedhead Sway (paper-fold face).

In 2012, he and Praire Kongpairin codesigned the alchemic hieroglyph-inspired typeface Saita (available at Ten Dollar Fonts). Still in 2012, he created YWFT Roland (an EPS format ornamental caps face), Baltic and Whiskey in a related style. YWFT Dogma (2012) is an EPS caps typeface based on the same design principles.

In 2013, he published the EPS vector set YWFT Pipe and writes: It's not a flatbed truck, it's a series of tubes, and this totally tubular Pipe will carry you down the water slide to bubble town before you can say "pop art." A little touch of Nintendo, some extra olive juice, and a green Jell-o chaser make for this bubbling EPS vector handset, containing two different styles: flat and glossy/reflection. In 2015, a regular font family was published. King (2013) is an alchemic EPS forrmat typeface family.

Kickingbird
[Seymour Caprice]

I like the description of this Catalan foundry at MyFonts: A foundry with a home in Catalunya. Kickingbird font work takes place in the quiet treehouse headquarters near a former Barcelona textile homestead. Font sketches are completed anywhere a notebook is handy... in the cafes of Gràcia, on the RENFE railway or outside the cloisters of Santa Maria del Mar. Font design inspiration comes from many sources. Faded broadside wall manifestoes in Ravel, broken floor tiles washed up on the shores of Vilassar de Mar or from old cigar boxes found at the Mercat de Sant Antoni. For those who know Barcelona, sweet memories. The designer, Seymour Caprice, created the vernacular typefaces Pop Manta (2009: Pop Manta has been described as "Morris Fuller Benton meets Roy Lichtenstein". Benton's 1903 neo-grotesque letter shapes set to a Pop Art beat.) and Locutorio (2011).

Typefaces from 2013: Bathysphere. This is a steampunk sans described as follows: This steam era typeface, created by Gustav Schroeder in 1884, found popular use on soap box labels and tobacco tins during its initial release. Then, later, a successful and stout revival of Gustav's face, named Othello, was carried out by Morris Fuller Benton in 1934, and the typeface's appeal widened to include items such as broadside posters featuring Boris Karloff's Frankenstein. After metal gave way to film type, Gustav's creation experienced a brief fashion moment in the 1960's, but then disappeared entirely, never re-surfacing as a full digital typeface. With the release of Bathysphere, the typeface comes full circle, having been completely redrawn from scratch using Gustav's original specimens. The new extended language support establishes the typeface firmly in the modern era, while Bathysphere's refinement of subtle blunt corners restores a deep-sea grace to this iron giant. However, Nick Curtis's Iago NF (2011) is also based on Othello, and is close in execution.

In 2016, Caprice designed Trop Magus and writes: Trop Magus is a rugged typeface following in the tradition of Ramon Llull and Jean Jannon. Llull's illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages inspired many later Alchemical texts in the Renaissance. And it was during this era, in 1615, that Jannon cut the matrices for Typi Academiae. Sixty-five astrological and alchemical symbols are included.

Loboarches

Creator at FontStruct in 2009 of Lobo, and Bat Country, while studying at UWE in Bristol, UK. Bat Country is as an aweseome blotchy hand-printed face, in the style of Treefrog. He explains: I made this for my UWE [note: University of Western England] graphic design first year project "communicating with words". I created this inspired by influences from Ralph Steadman and Jackson Pollock using the concept of inconsistency and randomized mark making with ink. The name is derived from a quote from the book "fear and loathing in Las Vegas". I designed it by firstly creating the text with a pot of ink and the back side of a Biro pen, then from that I drew them by hand onto A4 sheets of graph paper limitating each line to only 4 given angles, then finally transfering that onto FontStruct, wich took roughly 30-40 minutes per letter.

Microcalligraphy

Around 2008, making portraits using letters became somewhat of a fad. Wikipedia: Micrography, also called microcalligraphy, is a Jewish art form developed in the 9th century, with parallels in Christianity and Islam, utilizing minute Hebrew letters to form representational, geometric and abstract designs. Colored micrography is especially distinctive because these rare artworks are customarily rendered in black and white. Here and here are some examples. Handpicked by me:

Pop Art

Quoting from the P22 blurb regarding their P22 Pop Art set of fonts, which includes P22 Pop Art Comic and P22 Pop Art Stencil:

In the mid-1950's, Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns--two young and innovative artists who admired and respected the Abstract Expressionist paintings of Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning-- created works which bridged the way to a dynamic new movement. Rauschenberg and Johns applied paint thickly to the canvas with a freely gestural technique similar to that of the Abstract Expressionists but they also introduced and incorporated easily recognizable images as well as found objects.

At roughly the same time in England, a mid-fifties postwar giddiness with newly available consumer goods was responsible for an art movement drawing on popular cultural sources for its imagery. Magazine advertising, cartoons, and films provided the stimulus for much of the art and led Lawrence Alloway, an English art critic, to name it "Pop Art."

By the early 1960's in New York, several artists including Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein---working individually and unknown to each other as well as unaware of their English counterparts--arrived at the same destination. They traded less accessible, Abstract Expressionist gestural painting for easily recognizable painting styles and representational subject matter based on familiar commercial sources. As the art critic Lucy Lippard wrote, "Pop Art is instantly to the point, extroverted rather than introverted." These artists-- many capitalizing on their commercial art backgrounds-- invested popular culture with a new seriousness as well as with a wit and humor that blurred the boundary between high and low art as well as the boundary between art and daily life.

Pop art was a reflection of what, nostalgically, seems to have been a more innocent and upbeat period in our recent history. A young President Kennedy had just created the Peace Corps and the Beatles had made their first successful recording, "I Want To Hold Your Hand." [Google] [More]  ⦿

Pop art

Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the mid-1950s in Britain and in the late 1950s in the United States. Like dada, it is a revolutionary movement, a reaction to abstract expressionism and elitist culture in art. Just like dada, it uses found objects and images and makes frequent use of collages with a variety of unrelated materials. Pop art employs aspects of mass culture, such as advertising, comic books and mundane cultural objects. It stresses the banal or kitschy elements of any given culture, most often through the use of irony. Well-known artists in this movement include Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Robert Harling

Born in Highbury, North London in 1910, Robert was brought up by an aunt after the early deaths of his parents, and went to school in Brighton and London. He lived in Godstore, Surrey, and died in 2008. He studied at the Central School of Arts and Crafts, London. He first worked as a designer for the Daily Mail and was simultaneously an adviser on typography for London Transport and for the Sheffield-based foundry Stephenson Blake&Co, designing their literature and three popular display typefaces:

  • Playbill (1938) is a Western saloon face. Digital versions exist at Softmaker (as Prescott), URW++ (as Playbill), Elsner&Flake, and Bitstream (as Circus 721).
  • Chisel (1939) is an engravers typeface done at Stephenson Blake. Compare Bavo (Enschede). Digital versions exist at URW++, Elsner&Flake, and SoftMaker (where it is called Carlisle).
  • Tea Chest (1939) is an elegant stencil face, revived in 1999 at Apply Interactive by Sigred Claessens and Günther Flake. See also East India Company NF by Nick Curtis in 2011.

While still in his twenties, Robert co-founded and became editor of Typography, a journal of contemporary lettering and print, published by his friend and ally James Shand at the Shenval Press. When it first appeared in 1936, the journal broke new ground in its coverage of the European avant garde---including the first serious article on Jan Tschichold's work to be published in Britain. In 1951, he designed Keyboard (at Stephenson&Blake; Schnelle mentions 1949).

Typographic adviser to London Transport, and director of one of London's leading advertising agencies. With James Shand, he was the founder of the Shenval Press in Hertford. He published the quarterly magazine Typography. After WWII, he published Alphabet&Image. He was also the typographic adviser and architecture correspondent for the Sunday Times. He was a during their service with naval intelligence in the second world war. Author of Ian Fleming (2015), a book about Fleming published seven years after his death.

Type Supply
[Tal Leming]

Tal Leming is a graphic designer, type designer and letterer who lived in Wilmington, DE, but moved his stakes to Baltimore, MD. He graduated from Louisiana State University in 1997. Python scripting guru working mainly with Letterror and House Industries on projects using FontLab and Robofab. An avid RoboFog scripter, he joined Erik van Blokland and Just van Rossum to initiate the RoboFab project in 2003. After graduation in 1997 from the Louisiana State University Graphic Design program, he worked as a designer at two agencies in south Louisiana. In September of 2001, Tal joined the House Industries staff as a designer in the Type Development, Product Promotions and Python Systems Implementation Department. He worked on the Ed Benguiat collection, for example.

In 2005, he left House and started his own company eventually called Type Supply. Type Supply designs typefaces for corporations and publications. Their typefaces:

  • Baxter. An informal typeface used as a casual typeface in MyPublisher's BookMaker software. Commissioned by Christian Schwartz.
  • Bullet (House). Bullet is based on a bit of lettering drawn by Ken Barber for the House Industries Pop Art package.
  • Burbank (2006-2007, House Industries), a bouncy signage, animation, and package lettering family, about which Christian Schwartz writes: Well-drawn one-off display typefaces are easy to find, especially bouncy sans serifs. Complete suites of typefaces in this genre, however, are nearly impossible to find, especially families that are crafted with as much care as Burbank. I really appreciate seeing the attention to detail that usually goes into serious text family put into a family primarily intended for display use.
  • House Gothic 23. Tal Leming writes: The family was originally designed by Allen Mercer for use on the company's commissions, most notably the legendary promotions for Custom Papers Group. In 1995, House released the family to the public with modest success, but it was largely relegated to the back of House's catalogs. House went through a bit of a sans serif obsession in the early 2000s and decided that it was time to give House Gothic its time in the spotlight. Rich Roat asked me to polish up House Gothic and make it a bit more usable. I completely reworked Allen's original drawings, making the letterforms work better in headlines, added accented glyphs, reorganized the styles and more. Once that was done, I added completely new Extended and Text styles. The family more than doubled its size into 23 total fonts and was rechristened House Gothic 23.
  • Marigny (2014). He writes about this pleasant casual roundish typeface: Marigny, designed by Tal Leming, is a casual typeface that was drawn with serious typography in mind. It has the same basic proportions as classical oldstyle typefaces (think of Garamond and friends) and these give it a similar typographic rhythm to one that we have known for several hundred years. The hand-rendered forms transform this familiar texture into something very warm and pleasant. In a way, dipping into a block of text set in Marigny is like putting on your favorite pair of comfortable slippers.
  • Mission and Control. An athletic lettering family commissioned by Reebok for their 2008 NFL Sideline and NHL Center Ice collections.
  • Ohm (2009). A neon type family.
  • Queue. A sans typeface family.
  • Runway (House). Runway is an ode to House's sans serif obsession of the early 2000s.
  • Shag Lounge. a signage family: When I was working at House Industries, we decided that we should develop a font kit inspired by the work of Josh "Shag" Agle. Josh hadn't done much lettering work so we asked him to send us samples of lettering that he liked. Many of the things he sent featured whimsical, hand-cut lettering from the 1960s. We were really into this as well, so that formed the starting point for Shag Lounge. The typeface evolved into an amalgamation of a neo-grotesque style sans serif and hand-cut lettering.
  • Timonium (2012) can be bought from Type Supply.
  • Torque. An octagonal family with a great inline style. Torque (2009) began its life as an amalgamation of an American athletic lettering style and classic space lettering styles. There were also references to the video games, laser games and 1980s pre-teen sci-fi action movies of my youth.
  • United Ark. A military stencil face: Clint Schultz hired me to create a custom version of United for use on props in a Paramount feature film. The main goal of the project was to perfectly match stenciled lettering seen in a film released 27 years earlier. How exciting was it to make a typeface for a sequel to a classic film that I grew up with? Very, very, very, very exciting. This font is not, and will never be, available for relicensing, so please don't ask.
  • United. House industries commissioned me to develop the United family as an homage to stereotypical U.S. Military lettering styles. [...] United has become quite popular since its release and it has been seen just about everywhere from NFL coverage on FOX to the New York Times editorial page.
  • Balto (2007-2014) is a large American Gothic family.
  • In 2016, Tal Leming created 90 Minutes, a typeface that is exclusive licensed to the United States Soccer Federation in perpetuity. He writes: I wanted to introduce some more American typographic and lettering influences. We have a rich history from Morris Fuller Benton's iconic work to the impactful lettering on Works Progress Administration posters to the bluntness of wood type on letterpressed event posters. I wanted to subtly reference these to make the typeface as distinctively American as possible. The typeface her 37 unique styles partitioned over three families, 90 Minutes Display, 90 Minutes Kit (a set of styles developed exclusively for use on uniforms, taking into account FIFA regulations), and 90 Minutes Text (drawn specifically for use in small sizes, paragraphs and tables of statistics).

At ATypI 2008 in St. Petersburg, his talk (shared with Ken Barber) was entitled Pac-Man fever, quantum mechanics and the design of digital type.
