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

Forums: 

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?

Fountain – A Conversation With [Ep.1]: Göran Söderström

The first in a series of portraits, made for the Swedish type foundry Fountain, to showcase its type designers.

In March 2010 we packed our gear, and flew up to Stockholm to have a conversation with Göran about his typefaces and his thoughts on type design.

Just like Meadow - but condensed!

Forums: 

I guess the subject line says it all. Before the weekend we released Meadow Condensed designed by Göran Söderström. A version that saves a little space but has the same character. Meadow Condensed works well on its own or as a family member. Character sets are identical, finish and quality is the same, it's just narrower to make room for more words.

Meadow Condensed is well suited for strong headlines all the way down to small size settings.

Foral from Portugal with love

Last evening we released Foral – Rui Abreu's modern slab serif. A project that started almost four years ago. It started as a rigid and geometric design, but during this long period it developed into a more organic and balanced typeface, as it moved away from the initial modularity. Foral maintains its geometric concept, but with harmonized proportions and polished forms

Foral Pro is a eight-weight typeface, ranging from Light to Extra Bold with matching italics. It come with Small Caps and a wide range of OpenType features, allowing extensive and versatile use.
