Acute Studio
[Diana Ovezea]

Born close to the Black Sea coast in Romania, Diana moved to Austria as a child, where she attended the American International School. After graduating from the New Design University in St. Pölten, she worked as a graphic designer, mainly on book and corporate design projects. In 2013, she graduated from the Type & Media program at KABK in Den Haag. Some time later, she set up Acute Studio in Amsterdam under the motto: We like sharp outlines, tight curves, and edgy designs.

Creator of the hairline face Opium (2010) characterized by teardrop terminals. Creator of Paige (2011), developed at the tipoRenesansa 3rd international type design workshop in Ljubljana, Slovenia. This is an attractive and bouncy papercut display face. Marge (2011) is edgy and highly legible even at very small sizes---it was developed at the tipoRenesansa 2nd international type design workshop. Paige Italic (2012) was done at tipoRenesansa 4 and TypeClinic 5 (2012).

Her KABK graduation typeface was Editura (2013), a a type family for serious publications, magazines, as well as non-fiction books.

At The 8th International Typeclinic in 2014, she continued work on an untitled text typeface. At Die Gestalten, she published Paiper, an extraordinarily balanced and readable 6-style text family with angular flared glyphs that are genetically related to folded paper strips.

In 2014, Diana collaborated on the design of HF Stencil with Bold Monday and Studio Thonik. Made for Holland Festival, HF Stencil is based on Glaser Stencil.

In 2016, Diana published Equitan Sans and Equitan Slab at Indian Type Foundry, marrying industrial era rustiness with modern functionality. In 2017, she designed Tiny Sans and Albert Samuels Clock Type.

Codesigner in 2017 with Samo Acko and Sabina Chipara of the typefaces Passenger Display (2017) and Passenger Serif (released in 2019: a Clarendon). Passenger Display is a high-contrast didone-style font family. It is intended for use in headlines, signs, or posters. Passenger Display is a high-contrast didone-style font family. It is intended for use in headlines, signs, or posters. In 2019, Diana Ovezea and Samo Acko added Passenger Sans, which is characterized by horizontal and vertical terminal strokes and small apertures, and delivers a relaxing read in long texts.

With Sabina Chipara, she co-designed the 8-weight simplified sans family Bega at Indian Type Foundry. Diana Ovezea also published the sharp-edged 14-style Matteo in 2017.

At Future Fonts, she published Bizzarrini (together with Sabina Chipara) and Silverspoon, ca. 2018. She writes about the wonderful Bizzarrini: Though the idea originates from a Stefan Schlesinger ad sketch for a Paris couture house, we straightened up this typeface and made it seem engineered and sharp. It gets its name from the Bizzarrini Manta, a wedge-shaped concept car designed in 1968 by Giorgetto Giugiaro. Bizzarrini has extremely long wedge serifs. Following Schlesinger's sketch, it features very tall capitals with an out-of proportion middle-line (very big heads on S, B and R). Silverspoon is a contemporary take on Copperplate Gothic.

In 2019, she released the connected monoline sans script Akin (done with Sabina Chipara) and the geometric sans family Matteo at Indian Type Foundry.

Typefaces from 2020: Silverknife (a tall and skinny version of Silverspoon), Capra (a headline typeface with a bouncy baseline. This project started as a one-day challenge to recreate a piece of lettering on the Glass Menagerie poster designed by David Klein in 1958).

At Fontshare, Diana Ovezea and Sabina Chipara released the free calligraphic script Britney.

In 2021, Barbara Bigosinska, Rafa Buchner and Diana Ovezea set up Blast Foundry. At Blast Foundry, she published Granblue, a great experimental typeface family for boxing titles.

Typefaces from 2022: Duplet (a 14-style geometric sans with a techno vibe; by Diana Ovezea and Rafal Buchner at Indian type Foundry), Duplet Rounded (also 14 styles), Duplet Open (the 14-style companion of Duplet).

  • DIN Next Stencil (2017) and DIN Next Shapes (2018). Done together with Akira Kobayashi at Linotype.

  • At Future Fonts, she published Bizzarrini (together with Diana Ovezea). Diana Ovezea writes about the wonderful Bizzarrini: Though the idea originates from a Stefan Schlesinger ad sketch for a Paris couture house, we straightened up this typeface and made it seem engineered and sharp. It gets its name from the Bizzarrini Manta, a wedge-shaped concept car designed in 1968 by Giorgetto Giugiaro. Bizzarrini has extremely long wedge serifs. Following Schlesinger's sketch, it features very tall capitals with an out-of proportion middle-line (very big heads on S, B and R).
  • The connected monoline sans script Akin (2019), done with Diana Ovezea at Indian Type Foundry.
  • The neo-grotesque typeface Amurg (2019).
  • Anouk (2020). A reversed high contrast typeface designed to be used at large sizes.
  • Aesop (2021). A despoke typeface for the brand identity of Iwoca. The Iwoca identity elements were influenced by the work of Wassily Kandinsky through geometric shapes and angles. The corners of the sans typeface are rounded and provide a smooth appearance on screens.

URW Type Foundrty (was: urw++)

URW++ Design&Development GmbH is a Hamburg-based foundry established in 1995 by Svend Bang, Hans-Jochen Lau, Peter Rosenfeld, and Jürgen Willrodt. URW stands for Unternehmensberatung Rubow Weber, named after Gerhard Rubow and Rudolf Weber, cofounders of the original URW company from which urw++ evolved. It offers a whole range of font services and has an extensive (7000+) font library. At the basis of the early development of many classy PostScript fonts. For example, in 1999, URW++ donated the 35 core PostScript fonts (renamed) under the GNU GPL license to the Ghostscript project. The great 3000-font CD costs about 2000DM. Other CDs are more expensive: on the ITF CD, each font is about 100DM! URW sells fonts and font families with complete rights (you can change, resell, embed, anything, except use the original name), with examples ranging from 2k for a complete family of 12 to 5k for a collection of 250 fonts. This practice continues until today: URW++ thus provides a great service to software developers who want to include high-quality typefaces in their software applications. URW has offices in many countries. In the first decade of the 21st century, freelance type designer Ralph M. Unger contributed most frequently to the URW library. OpenType collection guide (in PDF).

Selected releases: URW Egyptienne, URW Grotesk (1985, Hermann Zapf), Anzeigen Grotesk (2009), Clarendon No 1 URW, Saa Series (an industrial sans: the official typeface for Australian road signage), Nimbus Sans (1987, a Helvetica clone), Nimbus Sans Novus, Nimbus Sans Europa (covering Latin, Greek, Baltic, Cyrillic, Central European, Turkish, Romanian, and so forth), Nimbus Roman No 9 (2001), Nimbus Sans Global and Nimbus Roman Global, each at about 2000 Euros, and each containing 35,000 glyphs, from kanji/Chinese/Korean to all European languages. House typefaces done for corporations: DaimlerChrysler Corporate ASE (after the Corporate ASE series for Daimler-Benz by Kurt Weidemann), Gardena Sans (2015, for Gardena), Siemens Schriftfamilie, Deutsche Telekom Schriftfamilie, ZF Friedrichshafen, Körber Argo, URW++ SelecType Raldo (2001, for Igepa).
