David Thometz Design
[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.

Omniglot

On the origin of Deseret: "The Deseret Alphabet was devised as an alternative to the Latin alphabet for writing the English language. It was developed during the 1850s at the University of Deseret, now the University of Utah, and was promoted by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as the "Mormon" or LDS Church, under Church President Brigham Young (1801-1877). The name Deseret is taken from a word in the Book of Mormon and means "honeybee". It reflects the LDS use of the beehive as a symbol of cooperative industry. Brigham Young's secretary, George D. Watt, was among the designers of the Deseret Alphabet and is thought to have used the Pitman English Phonotypic Alphabet of 1847 as the model. The LDS Church commissioned two typefaces and published four books using the Deseret Alphabet. The Church-owned Deseret News also published passages of scripture using the alphabet on occasion. In addition, some historical records, diaries, and other materials were handwritten using this script, and it had limited use on coins and signs. There is also one tombstone in Cedar City, Utah, written in the Deseret Alphabet. However, the alphabet failed to gain wide acceptance and was not actively promoted after 1869. Today, the Deseret Alphabet remains of interest primarily to historians and hobbyists." This page at Omniglot has a copy of the glyphs, and some links to fonts. [Google] [More]  ⦿
