His graduation project in Den Haag involved the multi-pen typeface Quixo (2010), which seems to be have just the right flexibility for packaging and ads. Frank lived in Den Haag, but joined Adobe's type department in 2011.

In 2013, he made HWT Tuscan Extended (Hamilton Wood Type). Hamilton Wood Type explains: It is based on the 1872 William Page & Co. version, while also bearing a very close resemblance to the Morgans & Wilcox Tuscan Extended and No. 2106 from Tubbs Manufacturing Co. It is similar to the Heber Wells Tuscan Extended. All four manufacturers were eventually acquired by Hamilton. The Hamilton designation for this design was simply No. 303. The National Printers' Material Co. of New York also offered a similar Tuscan Extended.
In 2014, Frank designed the free Source Serif typeface family at Adobe, to accompany Paul Hunt's Source Sans Pro (2012). It is a transitional family influenced by Perre Simon Fournier's styles from 1742. Google Web Fonts download link.

Nick and Adam Hayes
Nick Curtis (b. Chicago, 1948) lived in Texas from 1952-1997, and lives since 1997 in Gaithersburg, MD and Alexandria, MD. From ca. 1990 onwards, he has been designing fonts, first for free, and then commercially. He had a great reputation as a "revivalist" type designer, with a particular interest in retro fonts and art deco types. In 2003, his site had become too popular and too expensive to maintain, and thus he went commercial as Nick's Fonts. In 2013, he stopped making fonts, and donated his collection of rare books and type material to the University of Virginia. Interview. Free downloads at TypOasis.

Near the end of 2012, he posted this comment on his web site: Fifteen years ago, I embarked on a wonderful voyage of discovery, when I created my very first font with Fontographer 3.15. My maiden voyages were, frankly, rather clunky and amateurish, but I have been told that they showed promise. Well, sure enough, thanks to the diligent (and patient) efforts of Ilene Strizver, I polished up my craft enough to sell my humble efforts---first as a sideline business and, since 2006, as my full-time job. In total, I have produced over eleven hundred fonts---almost five hundred of them freeware fonts, which I conservatively estimate have been downloaded and enjoyed by over three million people worldwide. Unfortunately, this past year has brought a series of unanticipated setbacks, culminating in the loss of my wife's beautiful mind and soul to the scourge of alcoholism. In an effort to generate extra income to cover the expenses for her long-term care, I have proposed a number of, I believe, innovative ways to revamp the online font business; unfortunately, those efforts have fallen flat, primarily due to the professional font community's abject fear of crossing the $165 million Elephant in the Room. I even offered a special discount rate of 75% off retail price for full-time students of Typohile Forum. To date, there have been zero takers. Hell: even the webfont kit of one of my own fonts which I purchased from myfonts.com turned out to be an empty folder. Talk about a run of bad luck. Which leaves my with you, dear readers. If you or someone you know has had fun or made a buck from my humble efforts throughout the years, please donate whatever you can---even a lousy dollar would help---to help me out. I would greatly appreciate it.
Nick Curtis: Commercial faces
Nick Curtis (b. Chicago, 1948) lived in Texas from 1952-1997. Since 1997, he is in Gaithersburg, MD and Alexandria, MD. Since the 1990s, he has been designing fonts, first for free, and then commercially. He had a great reputation as a "revivalist" type designer, with a particular interest in retro fonts and art deco types. In 2003, his site had become too popular and too expensive to maintain, and thus he went commercial as Nick's Fonts. Interview. Free downloads at TypOasis. Complete list of names and other info, maintained by Sander de Voogt. Interview in which we learn about his fondness for Corel Draw as a type design tool. Home page. His free fonts are listed elsewhere.
On MyFonts, he says this about himself: Nick's Fonts is a modest little foundry dedicated to the preservation of our rich typographic heritage. Most of the foundry's designs are based on authentic historical sources, gleaned from the massive collections of the Library of Congress. If you are looking for a font that captures the essence of the Wild West, the Gay Nineties or the Jazz Age, look here first: if it is not in the catalog, it will be soon. [Google] [MyFonts] [More] ⦿

Volcano Type (MAGMA)
Magma Brand Design in Karlsruhe, Germany evolved in 2004 into Volcano Type. Magma is headed by Lars Harmsen (b. Hannover, 1964) and Ulrich Weiss. Lars Harmsen spent the first four years of his life in Chicago. He then moved to Geneva with his parents for eight years, and then moved to Karlsruhe. He completed his schooling at the French section at the European School. He first studied history and Germanics in Freiburg before beginning to study design at Basel, Boston, Saarbrücken and Pforzheim. He got his degree in graphic design, and in 1996 he founded MAGMA [Büro für Gestaltung] together with Ulrich Weiß. He is the co-founder of STARSHOT GmbH, a design company for sports products, now based in Munich. MAGMA created Type Foundry Volcano-Type.de and the internet forum Slanted.de. In the meantime, Slanted.de has become the most active German typography forum. Volcano Type offers commercial and some free typefaces: DigiBo (Boris Kahl), Objects (free ransom typeface by the house), MonoPoint and DoublePoint (monospace dot matrix families by the house), Amiga Normal and Rounded (pixel faces by Boris Kahl), Screeny, Pixel and C64 Style (pixel faces by Boris Kahl), Fette Pixel (pixel typeface by Florian Gärtner), Teckbo (digital typeface by Boris Kahl, who writes: Retro-Avant-Garde for Club-Flyer-Honks and Plastic-Pussy-Chicks), Psycho (grunge by Boris Kahl), Wald Ast (tree branch look by Sandra Augstein), Wald Blatt (tree leaf look by Tanja Rastätter), Rollerblind (a pair of dot matrix faces by Boris Kahl), Chaucer (uncial by Boris Kahl), Glossy (dot matrix typeface by Sandra Hofacker), Brüll (a funny frog dingbat typeface by Andre Rösler), Pax (a free peace symbol typeface by Heidrun Weißschädel and Alexander Kassel), Mud (free typeface by Boris Kahl).
