Martin Majoor and I will attend ATypI 2010 to talk about our collaboration:
the Questa project.
Anthony Bellamare was so kind to initiate and set up this exljbris Flickr Pool.
We invite you to inspire others and showcase your work using exljbris Fonts.
For now it's just a little exercise:
I always wanted to draw a fairly simple squarish didone like font.
RMIT University in Melbourne uses Museo for "corporate" communication.
And also in a TV ad.
Today Firefox notified me of the 3.01 update and because I'm still running Tiger I can now enjoy the benefits of facing (my) fonts using the font-face tag ... in this case taptaptap set in Fertigo. Found on css3.info.
(OK ... bold isn't bold and the italic is slanted and they are using the old Fertigo, but it still looks nice :-)
During the sculpture exhibition ‘Sonsbeek 2008: Grandeur’, the Kröller-Müller Museum will show work by one of the participating artists, Ana Maria Tavares. Tavares is fascinated with water. The workings of the water in the streams in and around Park Sonsbeek in Arnhem inspired her work, both in Sonsbeek and at this museum. During her investigations, she discovered some 80 springs in the vicinity, flowing into a large number of streams. The names of these springs – along with the mantra ‘Desire, Deserve, Delight, Still Life, Sparkling Water, Still Water, Sparkling Life’ are part of ‘Chrystal Waters’. This object, specially made for the museum consists of stacked layers of reflecting coloured acrylic glass. The mantra also appears in the net of ribbons that was carried as a banner in the Sonsbeek Procession and now makes up the installation, in combination with ‘Chrystal Waters’ and a map of locations. The installation will be on display until January 31 in one of the museum's project rooms.
Another (beautiful) sighting of Museo.
After reading Tal Leming's fraction fever I decided to give this a go. I've long wanted to script a decent fraction feature, but couldn't get it right. This is working perfectly (for now ... I've only tested it in Indesign CS2 on Tiger).
Still in progress ... but Museo Sans will end up with nominators, denominators, superiors, inferiors, oldstyle figures (proportional & tabular) and lining figures (proportional & tabular).
Someone mailed this to my blog. Isn't this love for Fertigo?
The tatoo still has to heal btw.
In between Anivers and Museo Sans I decided to update “the font nobody’s waiting for”. Just for fun, because it *is* fun. It will be completely redrawn and have extended language support (like Museo).
Anivers will get bold, italic and small caps. The release will be soon and (yes I've learned) sold via MyFonts.
Because of the many requests for a lowercase of MUSEO I decided to have another go at it. The only drawback is that it’s gonna take me longer to finish it.
Fontin is used for 'Vitality'. Spotted on the Dutch railway train station's kiosks.
It promotes healthy food.
Just a first look at the thingy I've worked on this past few weeks. Not ready for crits, because I'm still in the middle of my own processes :-) but ready enough for the outer world to take a first glimpse.
