As Types Grow Older – Re-Release of Grimoire and Sadness


My very first typefaces Sadness and Grimoire have just been published in new and revised versions at Myfonts. After the tragic end of the established Fountain Type Foundry I had to ask myself the following question: Is there still any justification for the existence of my 20 year old fonts?

Crique Grotesk (Stawix) opinions?


I just bought this mysterious font family on MyFonts. http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/stawix/crique-grotesk/ (very cheap)

What do you think of it? I'm looking forward to using this typeface in web/screen work, maybe in display sizes.

Does it remind you of some other typeface? At first I ran into this font on the web and thought it was another copy of something else. It turns out to be a standalone typeface.

Anyway, here's a quick specimen (attached). I like what I'm seeing thus far.

MonoMyFonts.com - up it's own tree

The first offering of the MyFonts Newsletter under the ownership of Monotype has not chosen to look at one of the thousand or so independent designers contributing to their site, but instead they have chosen to highlight one of their own designers - Steve Matteson.

A disappointing first step by the new owners.

Plau! New font by Niramekko


Hey everyone, I'd like to introduce a fresh new face from Niramekko. Plau is the name and it's available at MyFonts: http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/niramekko/plau/

The description:
Futurist typeface from the programming era, Plau is a sans-serif with rounded corner personality and interestingly deliberate lettershapes. Comfortable in headlines, reads surprisingly well in longer passages of text.

Also looks quite interesting on the screen.

Hope you guys like it.

New Font Release: Whimsical Musical



''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.
