MDTA Design -- Green Dragon
[Éamonn Hanratty]

MDTA Design, and in some cases MDTA together with Green Dragon, created these fonts, all related to British or Irish TV stations and their logos: BBCStripedChannelLogos, BBCTVChannelLogos, ITA-IBALogos, ITVNetworkChannels, Sky Television Logos, SKYfontbrands, SKYfontmovies, SKYfontnews, SKYfontone, SKYfontsport, SKYfonttravel, SKYfontThick, Sky1998ChannelLogos, SkyTVChannelLogos, UKDigitalTVChannelLogos, IrishRTVLogos, SkywardBold, SkywardRegular, Terrestrial Television Logos, UKtvFamilyLogos, UKTV Channel Logos, UK-&-Ireland-RTV-21, WelshTVLogos. The SKYfont family is originally by Martin Anderson. The web site states: "It all began in the year 2000 with the release of the original and ground-breaking TV Logos TrueType Font by its creator Andrew Wood. Ever since, it has become the inspiration for many other TrueType Font creators who have an abiding passion for television presentation, history and heritage to follow in their footsteps. The brainchild for the Green Dragon catalogue is Éamonn Hanratty. He has already compiled a comprehensive history of the television logos which have been used in the Republic of Ireland, from 1961 up until the present day. The title "Green Dragon" comes from the fact that Éamonn is the son of an Irishman and a Welsh mother. Born in 1963, he comes from Swansea, in Wales. As well as taking Andrew Wood for his inspiration, Éamonn also wishes to gratefully acknowledge the outstanding and progressive work in this field which Martin Anderson of England, Ray Larabie of the U.S.A., Rupert ten Hove of the Netherlands and so many others have been and are continuing so to do: that is, to present a growing range of non-commercial and freely available TrueType Fonts for private use." Apparently they also made Hylian Symbols, but I think that is a mistake by the people at DaFONT. Corporate text fonts: Sky Movie Sans, Sky Corporate Font, LIVINGtv Font, Telewest Voice, E4 Headline Font, uktv Home Font. [Google] [More]  ⦿

British printer and typefounder. British Letterpress writes: In 1878 Thomas Yendall took over a printing business started by John Taylor eight years earlier. The firm became a limited company in 1911. By 1925 type casting had started under the name Riscatype. Ten years later printing stopped and Yendall concentrated on the manufacture of type. In 1984 Yendall and Co. went into voluntary liquidation. The firm had cast type using Monotype machines, housed in a cramped green metal building in Risca, South Wales.

Zeep Type Foundry
[David John Earls]

Zeep Type Foundry (or ZTF) was founded by David Earls (b. Swansea, 1974). It exists purely, he says, to create Bathgate. For now, he has created the Blitter bitmap font (free for Mac and PC). Truetype for PC here. He writes about himself: David Earls is a recovering graphic designer based in London. He sometimes designs typefaces for his own enjoyment, but considers himself to be very much an amateur who never wants to stop learning. David founded Typographer.org in 1999 in the hope it should provide fiercely independent voice on the web, with honesty, impartiality and independence of funding at its core.
