FAN SCRIPT - A NEW SUDTIPOS RELEASE
We are proud to announce the release of our new typeface Fan Script
A typeface basically focus in sports but with a strong contemporary attitute
and ready to be used in any kind of projects.
We have designed a PDF specimen to show some of the possibilities of the font.
Panno Text is a reworking and extension of Panno (now renamed Panno Sign) and is optimised for continuous text. Similar to its signage counterpart it has narrow proportions, a very large x-height and open counters. The design of Panno can be characterised as simple and robust with little difference between its thickest and thinnest parts. Panno can serve as a perfect replacement for DIN in situations where the latter might feel too constructed or too cold. It will feel comfortable in many different environments whether that might be in editorial use, in corporate identities or in manuals.
Just Another Foundry proudly presents:
Brian Jaramillo's fabulous new display font, JAF Peacock.
From the filmmakers' blog at http://signpaintermovie.blogspot.com/:
The Sign Painter movie is currently in Production as of March 2010. This documentary is about sign painters in America. Those who were and still are walking the streets and using their talent to get a message across. You see their work daily on windows, sandwich-boards, boats, cars, billboards, in businesses, playgrounds, farmers markets and even theme parks to name a handful of spots.
LAC Sans was developed, in collaboration with design studio FM milano, for a pitch for the new identity program of the Center of Contemporary Art in Lugano, Italy. It is a vast project embracing many different sectors of the center, from music to theater to art. Therefore FM milano's idea was to connect all these entities with a unique typeface that would give the center recognisibility and character. The first weight to be developed was a display version to be used on posters, in the logotype and other promotional material. The typeface would then, if accepted, be expanded into a broader range of weights.

Elk Grove Village, IL -- July 13, 2010 -- Ascender Corporation is pleased to announce that the Canada Type font design studio has come to a font distribution agreement with Ascender.
Rebecca Alaccari and Patrick Griffin founded the Toronto-based Canada Type back in early 2004.

From the end of September 2010, expert classes on type design will be provided by the Plantin Society in Antwerp. The secrets behind the contemporary formal typographic representations of the Latin script, i.e. the underlying harmonic, proportional and rhythmic structures of the capital, roman and italic letters and the related typographic conventions and rules, will be analyzed and dissected. Available software for font production for Mac OS, Windows and Linux, like (but not limited to) FontLab Studio, FontForge and DTL FontMaster, will be reviewed and first steps towards designing type will be made.
The lessons are divided into two modules; for the first module no specific entry level is required, for attending the second module, the first one has to be successfully completed.

Check out our lastest newsletter in this link:
Kade is a display/semi display sans family of fonts based on vernacular lettering photographed over the last ten years in and around the harbours of Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Hence the name Kade that translates into English as ‘quay’, also the name of its designer.
Kade grew slowly from many different ideas and elements. The letters reflects the industrial method in which they are cut for the side of ships from large steel plates. Frequently subtleties of curves are compromised due to the cutting tools and the fact engineers are in control. Kade’s italics have an experimental character and were produced in an unorthodox manner by rotating 8 degrees, rather than slanting the roman characters, a method sometimes employed in shipyards.
P22 and the International House of Fonts proudly announce the release of the Foxtrot Pro Family.
The P22 Foxtrot Pro family of fonts is the latest design by Norwegian type designer Torleiv Sverdrup for IHOF. The design of Foxtrot is inspired by the lively ballroom dance of the same name. It is a transitional antiqua with rounded serifs that features ligatures, smallcaps, oldstyle numerals and full Central European support for those with applications that support OpenType features. The companion, Foxtrot Sans, is a sans serif version with a little more jazzy expression. Both fonts are great for text and display.
