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.
Salvo Sans & Salvo Serif
Cyrus Highsmith designed Salvo Sans & Salvo Serif (originally called Boomer Sans & Boomer Serif) as one series to tie the design of AARP The Magazine to AARP The Bulletin and AARP Segunda Juventud. Together the Salvos illustrate the guiding sentiments of the design director Courtney Murphy, “Hopeful, informative, alive, embracing and delightful. The right words draw people in, but on a subconscious level the typeface does that first.” FB 2007, 2011
With a vintage Selectric typewriter as his muse, Matthew Butterick set out to make a monospaced font that preserved the liveliness & comfortable readability of a proportional design. FB Alix was inspired by IBM’s Prestige, a ’50s stalwart, but features true cursive italics, not sloped variants. An OpenType set of proportional alternates allows for more conventional text fitting while retaining the classic typewriter look.
4 Styles: Regular, Italic, Bold, Bold Italic

Intrigued by a certain freewheeling eclecticism found in ATF faces from the turn of the 20th century, Juliet Shen constructed her own unabashedly quirky homage. Vivid character lends distinction, creating a notably clear text performance, even at small sizes. Named for Henry Lewis Bullen, influential printer & ATF librarian, talented visionary & erstwhile rogue, the typeface Bullen is likewise both serious and offbeat; FB 2011
4 Styles: Regular, Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic
Bullen is available as OpenType fonts with tabular figures, arbitrary fractions, and extended language support.
Prompted initially by commercial lettering and landmarks of the ’20s and ’30s, David Jonathan Ross fused a high-contrast style with a rationalized structure of flattened curves and wide-open apertures to devise this glimmering sans-serif family with slight Deco undertones. Condor has an unusually broad wingspan: from taut, compact weights that flaunt their athletic energy to bright, airy styles that radiate luxuriously; FB 2010
60 Styles: Extra Light, Light, Regular, Medium, Bold, and Black, all with italics in Compressed, Condensed, Normal, Wide, and Extended widths
Nick Sherman designed a new site for our metal type foundry using some web fonts by Font Bureau which reference faces designed by Morris Fuller Benton once cast on our ATF Barth casters. If you are interested in metal type or letterpress I hope you will have a look!

Howell, NJ & Brooklyn, NY
Boston, MA and Elk Grove Village, IL -- August 19, 2010 -- The Font Bureau, Inc. and Ascender Corporation today announced Webtype.com, a new venture to serve web designers and developers with publication-quality fonts to improve the typography and readability of websites. The service is available now at http://www.Webtype.com with a variety of custom web font options to accommodate websites of all sizes.
In the past, technical issues limited how fonts could be used on websites, but a lot has changed in the last couple years. Web designers have probably heard about new options for using fonts other than the handful of “web-safe” choices like Verdana and Georgia in their web designs.
Several people have contacted me recently in regards to the following topic, so I figured I might as well make a formal announcement…
After more than 3 full years of commitment, I've recently brought my position as the first full-time designer for MyFonts to a close. I'm very glad to say that I'm still on the best of terms with the MyFonts team and have nothing but the best wishes for them in the future. Working with John, Kevin, Chris L, Chris D, Jan, Laurence, Adam, and Joshua was one of the best experiences of my life, and it's hard to imagine finding a group of people as intelligent, supportive, or pleasant to work with as them.
