Gerard Unger's multi-award winning typeface now features small caps in all of its styles. After the release of Capitolium 2 and Capitolium News 2, which take advantage of OpenType possibilities and feature a broader language coverage –including accents for northern and central Europe languages– editorial designers from around the globe started to ask for small cap support... You asked for it, we deliver!

Hello everyone. I am a novice in type design aiming on making a serif (and if possible, a sans-serif companion) type system aimed at newspaper use. I am still in development, and I am looking at some other fonts that look great on print.

Already available on newsstands everywhere, so to speak — Quiosco, designed by Cyrus Highsmith, is now part of the Font Bureau Retail library and available for licensing and download.

While initially conceived for newspaper text, Quiosco has also found gainful employment in a variety of magazines — Sports Illustrated, TV Guide, Outside, and The Hollywood Reporter, to name-drop just a few.

EDITION LIDU search for author’s books, graphic books, art comic strips, illustrated short stories, photo books, hand-printed books and other original book forms which haven’t been published yet or has been self-published in limited edition.

The Call for Entries is open to established and emerging ARTISTS, ILLUSTRATORS, GRAPHIC DESIGNERS and TYPOGRAPHERS, PHOTOGRAPHERS, WRITERS, ART and DESIGN STUDENTS.

Deadline for Submissions: 16 March 2012

Comic Sans Pro Adds OpenType Features to Extend Versatility of Comic Sans and Inspire New Creativity and Expression

WOBURN, Mass., April 1, 2011 – The Comic Sans® typeface, one of Microsoft’s most popular designs, has received a makeover courtesy of Monotype Imaging. Today the company has introduced the four-font Comic Sans Pro family of typefaces.

We are thrilled to announce that the highly regarded collection of fonts from Sudtipos is now available for purchase and download at AscenderFonts.com.

As readers of Typophile may already know, the Sudtipos font collection features the work of four talented co-founders: Ale Paul, Ariel Garofalo, Diego Giaccone and Claudio Pousada. Sudtipos is most well known for its amazing variety of script typefaces, most of which contain extensive OpenType® typographic features.

You may have noticed this already, but I thought I better post it here anyway. Following the redesign of the mother-page of the BBC News, the BBC Arabic launched their redesigned website. It is probably one of the first, and certainly the biggest site yet to use webfonts – Arabic webfonts that is. It uses a custom version of Nassim by Titus Nemeth. The typeface was painstakingly optimized for screen and for web. Hinted by Thomas Grace and mastered into webfonts by Tim Ahrens.

You can read more on Titus' blog.

We will be releasing Nassim through Rosetta Type Foundry this year, see http://rosettatype.com/Nassim .

Few pictures:

Ascender is pleased to announce that a distribution agreement with the talented lettering artist Laura Worthington. Laura has been in the type design field since 1997 and she has a deep passion type and lettering design.

Storm Type Foundry new website


I'd like to invite you to see our new website, yet beta version, but fully functional. Your critique is very welcome. At the occasion of launching, we've released also some new fonts such as Fenix, modernised Rondka, Negro Slim, Patzcuaro Estrecho, among earlier released Walbaum 2010 or Abalda.


For quite some time I thought this was custom made.
I know now this is a typeface.
Please identify it.
Thank you for your time.

A friend, who is by no means a typophile, brought to my attention this article from the culture blog of The Economist. It's about the centenary of the birth of Roger Excoffon, the great designer of the types Mistral, Banco, and Antique Olive, among others, and the man who gave Air France its trademark look in its heyday. To my French colleagues who were, apparently, oblivious to the event, I say "honte à toi! Honte inexpiable!"

Condiment

We are proud to announce the release of Condiment, the lastest Sudtipos addition to your typographic design recipes.

About Condiment.
Condiment adds flavor to your design. The new font by Koziupa and Paul’s is prepared of powdered soft shapes mixed with brush-drawn letters and tasty alternates conveniently tucked into the OpenType programming (for those programs that support such functionality.) The font includes many alternates and support for Latin-based languages (Including Central European, Baltic, Turkish and Welsh).

I've been having some trouble IDing the typeface used in the gothamist logo. If anyone can offer some help, that'd be great.

Ayita Pro is a cheerful new sans serif design by Jim Ford of Ascender Corp. Ayita is a Cherokee name which translates to 'first in dance' and recalls the exuberant rhythm and flow of these 14 new typefaces. Originally conceived as an upright italic design, the Ayita typeface family remains contemporary, friendly and elegant yet hard working.

Just for interests sake:

Hi All,

I'm working in tandem with two in-house designers on a news magazine redesign. The new nameplate/logotype is a heavily customized amalgamation of Gotham Black and Font Bureau's Anisette Bold (think very wide and bold). The serif we've chosen is Glosa Display for big heads, and Glosa Text for body copy. We're also using Stag, a contemporary slab, for headlines, decks, etc.
