Geography meets typography: The world in words. Starting as an experiment, it turned out to be an exciting product. Finally available here: http;//www.typomaps.net

The Typomaps are awarded with the IF Design Award and are nominated for the Design Award of the Federal Republik of Germany 2011.

The Typomaps are handset, and not automatically generated by computer program. Thereby we achieved an astonishing closeness to the conventional worldmap. For the type-interessted people: we used the font „Helvetica Neue Black Condensed“.

NEW RELEASE
Crete Rounded... exclusively for web use

Crete Rounded is a tailored version of Crete created specially to serve as corporate typeface for the upcoming type design competition Letter.2. Veronika Burian, the original designer of this award winning typeface, modified terminals and serifs to create two new fonts that deliver a more contemporary and functional appearance than the original Crete. Furthermore, the new styles proved to be surprisingly efficient for web use. For the time being, TypeTogether is making it available exclusively through our webfonts partners.

Please save the date for Sunday, December 5th, because Cinema Speakeasy, Echo Park Film Center, KERNSPIRACY and Machine Project are planning on taking you on THE TYPOGRAPHY JOYRIDE.

There are a few things in this world that you will probably never live without: Oxygen, people, and words.

It's this last element - well, typography, if you wanna split hairs - that we're especially interested in this month, and we want to help you learn more about the wonderful, esoteric, magical world of typeface design.

Donald and Liza from Typeradio took the opportunity at the ED-Awards celebrations 2010 in Rotterdam to interview Veronika about her work. She attended the awards ceremony, because TypeTogether received a Gold Medal for Adelle. The interview starts questioning Veronika about religion and then continues to ask how she got to type design, her favourite letter and more.

Contest to Recognize Websites that Best Integrate Web Fonts is Now Accepting Entries through Nov. 7, 2010

WOBURN, Mass., Sept. 27, 2010 – Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, is accepting entries through Nov. 7, 2010 for the first Web Font Awards, an international competition designed to recognize websites that incorporate exceptional use of Web fonts. Prizes include two $3,000 cash awards, Apple® iPad® mobile digital devices and various typeface offerings from Monotype Imaging. Winning entries will be determined at a live judging event on Nov. 16, 2010, during the Future of Web Design conference, Nov. 15-17, in New York City.

According to Steve Lee, product marketing manager for Monotype Imaging's creative professional division:

Many Web design­ers have been ask­ing how Monotype Imaging sup­ports iPhone® and iPad® devices using Fonts.com Web Fonts ser­vice. These devices are known for super­ior dis­play qual­ity, and as our test­ing and usage have shown, there’s no excep­tion when it comes to Web fonts. The iPhone 4, for example, with its 960-by-640-pixel res­ol­u­tion at 326 ppi (higher than early laser print­ers), renders text that is simply stun­ning. Web fonts really shine when zoom­ing to see con­tent up close, thanks to their amaz­ing sharp­ness and clarity.

Our approach to Mobile Safari® sup­port can be summed up in two words: sim­pli­city and control.

LeFrançois is a typeface in OpenType format based on 3 series of capitals.
It seems to be classical but some glyphs show that it's not so conventional.
It's seems to be a typical French type, that's why its name is LeFrançois (with the accent please !)
With a particular work on kerning (about 5000 !) and ligatures, you'll be able to compose words as logotypes thanks to capitals and small caps.
It will be soon available at http://www.editions205.fr

DeLuxe Gothic Release from Alphabet Soup


Alphabet Soup has changed the name of its “Bank Gothic AS” to “DeLuxe Gothic“ due to threatened legal action. Having great respect for the original designer of Bank Gothic, Mr. Morris Fuller Benton, they chose the name DeLuxe Gothic because it was the name that The Intertype Corporation used for their version of this classic font during the early years of the 20th Century.

Unlike the traditional Bank Gothic fonts, DeLuxe Gothic contains a complete set of lowercase letters. Coincidental to the release of this renamed font, there's a Special Promotion running on MyFonts: 50% off this font for one time only—and for a limited time.
