Colin Banks

Colin Banks (1932-2002) co-founder of Banks & Miles, designers and typographers, founded in London in 1958 with partner John Miles. Major clients included the Consumers Association, the Post Office, British Telecom and London Transport, for whom they redesigned Edward Johnston's famous Underground Sans (as New Johnston). Banks would later design a limited edition book for the organisation as a tribute to Johnston.

An influential designer, his Telecom (T) identity, created for British Telecommunications when it was instituted in 1981, spawned many imitators. Its replacement by Wolff Olin's BT 'piper' was received with much derision in 1991. He received a prestigious RSA/BBC Design Award in 1990, for the paper-saving redesign of the UK's Phonebook. Banks designed the UK Post Office's distinctive 'double-line' alphabet.

Albert-Jan Pool, Achaz Reuss, 1995-2002

After re-working and expanding OCR-B to include three weights for the FontFont 14 release (FF OCR-F), Pool began working on his second FontFont, the famous DIN Mittelschrift. This face has not only dominated the traffic signs and public buildings in Germany, but with its technical orientation and straightforwardness it has also found many friends internationally. FF DIN has been expanded to a family of five weights. For each weight there is an Alternate cut with old style figures, circular i-dots and full points and oblique terminals on some characters.

Agilita

Indices : Typefaces : Agilita

Agilita is a OpenType humanist sans serif, both adaptable and lively. In smaller point sizes, the hairline weight of Agilita is so fragile, it pulsates with the possibility of disappearing and reappearing. The larger the point size of the hairline, however, the more it wants to take charge, its delicacy lifting off the page and grabbing the eye. In heavier weights, Agilita displays an amicable human robustness and warmth. This unique range of appearances from quivering playfulness to classic solidity gives Agilita an independence ideal for highly versatile design applications.

Tintbook CMYK Color Matching System

With technology changes in the printing industry, color matching has become a major hurdle for everyone involved in the printing process. From the computer screen, to laser printouts, followed by printer’s digital proofs that are produced on a variety of substrates using multiple chemical compounds, true color results are often confusing and disappointing. There is no consistency between the computer monitor, digital proofs and the final printed press sheet.

Tintbook sets a new CMYK color standard for everyone involved in the Graphic Design Industry. Working with Tintbook is the best way to achieve desired color and avoid disappointment at the printing stage. It is printed under the same conditions as any offset printing project. Tintbook shows how your colors will appear on paper before you print.

About FF Info Text

A complete revision of the original FF Info Text Family. Regular and Caps now work better with the new Italic weights and they all now have standard Adobe encoding and integrated Euro symbols. Some letterforms have been corrected and the widths and kerning have been re-tooled. In addition, there are now two sets of figures (old style and table figures) and Expert Sets with arrows, mathematical symbols, and fractions. Notice: type set in FF Info Text (Update) will flow differently than the same text set in the old FF Info Text.

FF Info Text Italic and Caps Italic are brand new designs by Ole Schäfer as extensions to the Text family.

Museum of Printing History

Indices : Museums : The Museum of Printing History

The Museum of Printing History narrates the story of written communication and the ways in which the technologies of printing have transformed everyones lives. Galleries trace significant developments from ancient Mesopotamian clay tablets, to the Chinese invention of movable type, to Johann Gutenberg's printing press. American history is dramatized through newspaper accounts of major events from the American Revolution to the Civil War; Texas history is told through the life of the state's first printer, with a press he owned and a display of the documents and newspapers he printed. The Hearst Newspaper Gallery demonstrates the emergence of modern printing, and our exhibit of historic newspapers documents pivotal moments in recent history.

Also known as Thessaloniki. Organized by University of Macedonia Press, and held at University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki, Greece.
