alpha bold

Dear Typophile
Since you have been such excellent, honest and admirable Critics, i would like to ask for inputs once more. In the last post i have shown you the typeface alpha and i was already writing about making a bold. Now i have adjusted the regular some more and i have created the bold typeface. Therefore i would like to hear what you think about my former work, so i can polish it.
best regards

Alphabet Soup Type Founders and Michael Doret are proud to announce the release of the “Steinweiss Script” family on MyFonts.


These fonts began began their journey towards daylight when Michael Doret was asked by Taschen Publishing to do cover lettering for the huge commemorative edition they were putting together on the work of Alex Steinweiss—“The Inventor of the Modern Album Cover”. The lettering was to be created to appear similar to the famous “Steinweiss Scrawl” the calligraphy that Steinweiss had used on countless album covers:

My hip collegian daughter is always pushing me to make fonts which she thinks will fit the design trends of the day, which seems to come down to fonts which would look good in the monogram on the side of the Adams Family’s hearse, on an Ed Hardy t-shirt or tattooed on the back of a contestant on Tool Academy. Ok, that’s the extent of my second-hand contemporary cultural literacy.

''Whimsical Musical'' is a vivid hand drawn font with 405 alternate letters, all caps. Developed from a lighthearted drawing in my sketchbook saying the German word MUSIK cheerfully over and over in twenty vivid variations. Next to it was the date "6th April 2007." This initial idea has burst into a font that is full of surprises and whimsical turns. It is dynamically suggestive, like music, and humorously chaotic, as in Dada.


Zebramatic - A Lettering Safari

Zebramatic is a font for editorial design use, to create headlines and titles in eye-catching stripes. Constructed to offer flexible and a variety of graphical possibilities, Zebramatic type is easy to use. The font is offered in three styles: POW, SLAM and WHAM. These styles work both as ready-made fonts and as patterns to create unique, individualized type. The font design’s full potential is unleashed by layering glyphs from two or all three styles in different colors or shades.

Gah, I've never done this before and debated promoting the typeface here at all, but since you all give me inspiration and happiness with your new releases, it would be selfish of me not to share with you all. So sheepishly, here it is.

The other day I release Ne10, a new stencil typeface I designed, through YWFT. This stencil font takes its inspiration from a neon sign at my local pizzeria without being blatant in its reference. I found myself staring at the sign too often, so I decided to try to work it out digitally. While sketching it up I realized that this could work rather nicely as a stencil font, instead of a faux 3D neon looking thing. So although the inspiration is neon, the result is more modern looking. Hopefully some of you will like it.

Finally I have decided to publish the fruit of my labour on MyFonts. The result for now is yet another version of Baskerville Old Face but with the added suffixes ”KTKM” and ”Display” (Baskerville Old Face KTKM-Display).

I wanted to improve the contrast between thick and thin, reduce some ink-traps and give stems, serifs and links a smoother overall feel. I have also added some alternative letters, ligatures and old style numerals.

Feedback is highly appreciated.

Best regards,
Kristian Möller




TypeTogether is proud to announce the release of Etica, a strong yet delicate sans serif.

Etica, the-moralist-typefamily-project, was born at the end of 2000, but its development is ongoing, overcoming many hurdles and diversions. On one hand, the original idea was spurred by a certain esteem for Helvetica, in particular, its strength and versatility, and on the other, an intolerance to its plenty but inadequate applications; created by those who erroneously consider it to be a neutral and timeless design.

We believe that Helvetica is a beautiful typeface, but very deeply rooted in its own era. It is often unsuitably used in contexts that have changed profoundly since its birth. From this initial intention, we coined the ironic payoff ‘The-Moralist-Typeface’.

Hey, so I've had a love for typography for years, but have just started getting into designing fonts. I bought a copy of TypeTool for Christmas and I've been itching to get started. My first font idea came from a CD cover I designed for a Christmas present this year. I wanted to have the word "SMASH" in a cartoony, ultra-condensed font that would take up the whole cover, both horizontally and vertically. I couldn't find anything out there that was compressed enough for this job, so I ended up drawing my own type for it in Illustrator. When I started thinking about designing my first font, I figured if I couldn't find anything like this, maybe there will be someone else looking for a font like this to fill a design need so I thought I'd flesh it out and see how it took.
