Born in Carmelo, Colonia, Uruguay in 1983, then based in Geneva, Switzerland, where he studied Visual Communication at the Haute Ecole d'Art et de Design, and now back in Montevideo, Uruguay, this graphic designer created the counterless geometric typeface Circ (2011), and the triangulated experimental typeface VIGA (2011). Fermin has a Bachelors degree in Industrial Design (2009). At his foundry, also called Fermin Guerrero, one can buy VIGA and MANIFESTA (2012, a De Stijl typeface).
For his Bachelors thesis at HEAD in Geneva, he created the typeface Genève (2014): In developing Genève I was inspired by the typeface used by French printer/editor/publisher Henri II Estienne in his famous book Thesaurus Linguae Graecae, published in Geneva in 1572. This typeface was brought to Geneva by Henri's father, Robert Estienne, who, before settling in Geneva and working as Calvin's printer, was the printer of France's King, François I. This typeface highly influenced the typographers and printers in Geneva at that time. Henri and Robert Estienne's work in Geneva helped it to become one of the most important cities in Europe for print and typography in the sixteenth century. Genève consists of four styles: Classique (humanist serif), Austère (geometric serif), Spontanée (humanist sans-serif) and Alternative (stencil, display version).
Graduate of the MATD program at the University of Reading, class of 2015. His graduation typeface was Exentra which was was conceived for publications promoting forward-thinking through a contemporary and experimental vision of modern culture and trends. It supports Latin, Gurmukhi and Greek. In addition, Fermin added the fat face didone / gothic mixture mixture font Black Display for applications in fashion, and the super-angular and scary Franky as sub-styles of Exentra.

Formation Type Foundry
Futura Black circa 1860
This provocative title is used by type historian Eric Kindel for his presentation at ATypI 2013 in Amsterdam. His research is captured in the abstract, which is reproduced verbatim below.
Futura Black, Braggadocio, Transito, Schablone. These typefaces, variously constructed of squares, triangles and circle segments, are blunt and counterpunctual. They are a consolidation of letters (and numbers) that emerged in the work of early European modernists, among them De Souza Cardoso, Léger, Hoerle, Arntz, Berlewi, Lissitsky, Schmidt, Albers and Moholy-Nagy. The Dutch, too, found such letters to their liking: Van der Leck at first, then Sandberg, Elffers, Schrofer, Bons and many others. The letters are emblematic of the first machine age and it impulse to build from or reduce to simple geometric elements. They seem mechanistic but are not obviously made by any specific tool or machine. This presentation will trace this most modernist of letters to its mechanical origins. The trail will lead to the northeastern United States where, in the middle decades of the 19th century, a group of inventor-makers devised letters of this kind for very practical reasons. Their aim was quick and easy stencil cutting. To achieve this, stencil letter punches seemed like a good idea---and so they invented them. When it came to their manufacture, the punches acquired striking features: forms stripped of all vulnerable detail, cut with grinding wheels, hack saws and files, built to withstand relentless hammer blows, driving them through brass into hard wood. Letterform conventions were followed but only so far as manufacture and use would allow. The results were odd, perhaps ugly, but certainly purposeful. In addition to reviewing the idiosyncratic form and manufacture of these letters, the presentation will offer brief profiles of their almost unknown inventor-makers. A range of artefacts associated with stencil letter punches will be illustrated, including stencil-making outfits advertised and sold in the US after 1860, which were bought by enterprising individuals in search of a trade. Requiring only a modest outlay, some initiative and perhaps a decent pair of boots, many purchasers became canvassing stencil cutters, armed with a license, an account book and a small catalogue of designs to tempt the public. The presentation will follow the evolution of stencil letter punches through the later 19th century and into the 20th, when their letters were reborn into a bright modernist world. [Google] [More] ⦿
From the Wikipedia entry:
Futura is a geometric sans serif typeface designed in 1927 by Paul Renner. Although Renner was not associated with the Bauhaus, he shared many of its idioms and believed that a modern typeface should express modern models, rather than be a revival of a previous design. Renner's initial design included several geometrically constructed alternative characters and ranging (old style) figures which can be found in the typeface Architype Renner. Futura was commissioned by the Bauer type foundry. The success of Futura coincided with the creation of many competing geometric sans serif typefaces including Kabel, Metro, Vogue, Erbar and Spartan, Twentieth Century, and Century Gothic among others.
Futura has an appearance of efficiency and forwardness. The typeface is derived from simple geometric forms (near-perfect circles, triangles and squares) and is based on strokes of near-even weight, which are low in contrast. (This is most visible in the almost perfectly round stroke of the o, but the shape is actually slightly ovoid.) In designing Futura, Renner avoided the decorative, eliminating non-essential elements. The lowercase has tall ascenders, which rise above the cap line. The uppercase characters present proportions similar to those of classical roman capitals.
Uses of Futura by businesses: Graphic identity of Volkswagen and Union Pacific, Swissair (1950s to the 1990s), Boeing's flightdeck labeling, films by Wes Anderson and Stanley Kubrick, the commemorative plaque left on Earth's moon by Apollo 11 astronauts in July 1969, Ikea Sans and Opel Sans (Futura-based house fonts designed by Robin Nicholas), Doctor Who (BBC series), RAI Radiotelevisione Italiana, and Ferrovie dello Stato.

A site that offers to host fonts for use in @fontface tags on web pages. I do not quite understand the pricing---somewhere it says, for example, that Abia Wide by Tkachenko will cost 15 dollars per year and per web site.

Panose is a ten-digit number where each digit is hexadecimal (between 0 and 15) that attempts to classify a font. If applicable and computed, it may be inserted into the OS/2 Table of the Rich Font Description (RFD) incorporated into each True Type font. It was invented to speed up printers by minimizing the number of fonts required in the printer memory. For eample, Times New Roman is 2263545234, but Wingdings is 5000000000. Panose numbers are useful for detecting similar styles of fonts in collections. There is software (like High Logic's Main type that permits one to view fonts in collections by Panose number. The digits take care of these properties: (1) kind (2) class (3) weight (4) aspect (5) contrast (6) serif variant (7) treatment (8) lining (9) topology (10) range of characters.
Panose was developed by Benjamin Bauermeister (b. 1960, St. Louis, MO). In 1990 he cofounded ElseWare with Clyde McQueen in Seattle, where he first revealed his PANOSE1 Typeface Matching System which began as a 7 digit number. Each succeeding digit breaks the font collection down into ever smaller groups. Hewlett-Packard Co. purchased Elseware Co. and expanded PANOSE to ten digits. HP created a PANOSE engine that compressed font information into 2kb packets and incorporated the Panose numbers into their Agfa Monotype typefaces to identify which packet should be used with which font. Then they designed their printers so that instead of using an entire font, they just sent the number. The printer memory did the math and reproduced a simulation of the font. In other words, the PANOSE numbers told the printers how to draw the typeface. Some improvements were made and Panose1 became Panose2. Bauermeister wrote A Manual of Comparative Typography: The Panose System (Paperback) (1987, Van Nostrand Reinhold).
The details of the digits:

Honduras-born graphic designer and illustrator who is based in Miami. He created DMesh (2012), an octagonal or paper-fold typeface, about which he writes: In 2011 I came across a beautiful app called DMesh. The program itself used Delaunay triangles along with a complicated algorithm to turn any image into a beautifully stylish work of art. I got in touch with the creator of the app, Dofl Yun, and told him that I was interested in fleshing out a typeface inspired by D in the DMesh logo. He was excited about the prospect of there being a proper typeface related to his app. Dofl gave me his blessing and the result was the project you see here.
