Ergon

Ergon, designed by Hrvoje Živčić, was started in 2017 as a part of a design pitch for branding of Dubrovnik and Neretva county in Croatia. Working in a team with Lana Cavar and Narcisa Vukojević, Hrvoje drew a bold, all-caps typeface honoring the rich cultural and typographic history of the region. The idea was revisited and revised through the years and expanded with a lowercase and additional weights in 2021–22. Stylistically, it is a combination of influences: stone chiseled letters meet sharp digital drawing to produce bold and sculptural graphic forms.

Lovesong

An homage to Brush Script by Miguel Reyes, started as a custom project that was cancelled amid a corporate reshuffle, and later finished for Richard Turley’s guest editorship of Its Nice That in August 2022. Miguel’s update draws on his experience with signpainting, toning down the bouncy baseline and facilitating use in all caps. Brush Script was designed by Robert E. Smith in 1942; a different Robert Smith provided the name.

Moulin

Moulin, a work in progress by Sandrine Nugue, is an asymmetrical flared design influenced by classical lettering and Adrian Frutiger’s underappreciated Icône from 1980. The balance of black and white and tension between inner and outer forms give a sculptural rather than calligraphic character, resulting in a comfortable texture for text and an assertive personality at display sizes. The family was updated with a full range of upright weights in August 2022.

Candy Darling is a script typeface drawn by Miguel Reyes, commissioned by Richard Turley for Interview magazine in 2021. Named for one of Interview founder Andy Warhol’s superstars, this typeface sits at the intersection of chaos and careful engineering, good and bad taste, peep show neon and the formal script lettering of Doyald Young, with some bizarre forms and a wild set of swash capitals. Kurt Woerpel and Jack Vhay made it look incredible during its year in the magazine.

Canela Blackletter

Miguel Reyes drew this blackletter companion to Canela inspired by the long tradition of blacketter in Mexico, particularly on signage for small, casual restaurants called fondas. The first sketches became the logotype for his own family’s restaurant, Raíz, and the character set has since been filled out, including two kinds of capitals: a simplified set, and a more complex set that are evocative of newspaper nameplates.

Canela Blackletter

The initial idea for Canela Blackletter came about when Miguel drew the logotype for Raíz Cocina Contemporanea in Cholula, PUE.
An early draft of the typeface was used in a proposal for the theater attached to the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC.

Daniel Grumer and Yanek Iontef drew Lyon Hebrew based loosely on broad nib models from the 15th and 16th centuries. As in the Latin, details have been simplified, streamlined, and stripped away, leaving crisp and decisive forms with unabashedly digital detailing. The italics are particularly interesting, as they manage to keep the same balance of free cailligraphic gestures and structured repetition of forms seen in Kai Bernau’s original.

The collection has been expanded for release by Hrvoje Živčić, who expanded the weight range and drew italics for the entire collection. Condensed display faces add to the family’s utility.

Christian Schwartz spent most of 2020 on an extended parental leave that made it hard to find time or energy to concentrate on type design. Scattered hours while the kids were in bed went to this typewriter face, a sufficiently low-stakes project, based on a low-res scan of an old IBM Selectric ‘golf ball’ alphabet called Advocate, designed by Howard “Bud” Kettler (best known as the designer of Courier). Rough source material led to a very loose interpretation. Richard Turley has used it for a few small publications with Civilization. Updated 23 Sep 2021: Apologies to Matthew Butterick, who already published a typeface called Advocate.

Eugenio Sans

Eugenio Sans

To compliment Eugenio Serif in Francesco Franchi’s redesign of La Repubblica, designer Greg Gazdowicz created a sans can be both stylish and pragmatic as needed. He and Franchi settled on a geometric sans serif, partially inspired by the classic combination of Bodoni and Futura which was popularized in the 20th century by famed Modernist Massimo Vignelli. Eugenio Sans serves the newspaper at many sizes: from big drop caps to small captions, sidebars, and info graphics. It is also the primary headline typeface for the Sport and other feature sections, reserving Eugenio Serif for news. Though the geometric sans genre is remarkably crowded, Gazdowicz found that by focusing on the technical constraints of newsprint and complementing Eugenio Serif, he wound up with a fresh design in the process. The terminals end at flat verticals, making for open apertures and clean spaces between letters, giving a straightforward and newsy tone.

Eugenio Serif

Eugenio Serif was drawn by Miguel Reyes, assisted by Hrvoje Živčić, for Francesco Franchi’s redesign of La Repubblica, and remains the main headline face after a reworking of the newspaper. It’s a fairly faithful rendition of Bodoni, but the softness of the serifs and subtly rounded corners give it warmth, making it feel more like phototype than crisp, perfect digital letterforms. The primary historical source that Miguel referenced was 16pt and 24pt specimens in a facsimile of Giambattista Bodoni’s definitive 1818 Manuale Typographico.

Seance comprises two blackletter styles based on the outlandish designs of French lettering artist Jean Midolle (1794–?). Midolle’s Fracture Midolline and Gothique Brisée, published in his 1835 Spécimen des écritures modernes, are thoroughly gothic in multiple senses of the word. In Seance, Tim Ripper has reworked these standalone alphabets as typefaces while attempting to preserve as much as possible of their creepy—and campy—peculiarities.

Local Gothic

Local Gothic is inspired by the moveable lettering of outdoor signs in America. Its individual characters look ordinary, but in combination they appear random and irregular, giving a distressed and unusual appearance. Designed by Christian Schwartz while he was studying graphic design in the late 1990s, Local Gothic gives a surprising and uneven texture that can breathe life into both print and web projects. The characters are loosely based on the four most ubiquitous sans serifs in America: Helvetica, Futura, Franklin Gothic, and Alternate Gothic No. 2. Tal Leming developed innovative OpenType code, using theories based on quantum mechanics, to mix the mismatched letters in a way that feels truly random.

McClatchy

The McClatchy Company publishes 29 daily newspapers across the US. Working with Garcia Media, they spent a year developing a unified design language to bring together the print papers, mobile apps, and web editions with a more consistent overall look. Greg Gazdowicz, Miguel Reyes, and Christian Schwartz designed a set of typefaces that helped to bridge the gap between design consistency and individual character.

Designed by Paul Barnes, along with Gabriello, for Puma. Azzurri is a low-contrast italic with faceted edges and no curves, designed to look both legible and stylish on the backs of football shirts. The swashes were a later addition.

Gabriello

Football numbers are an exercise in balancing style with functionality. Inspired by brush lettering, Puma commissioned the Bold weight of Gabriello for the shirts of their sponsored teams in the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations, and also used it for their African teams in that year’s World Cup: Algeria, Cameroon, Ghana, and Côte d’Ivoire. Far more organic than the typical straight-sided octic athletic letters, Gabriello is slanted on two axes, both horizontally and vertically, giving the energy of a script without causing production problems for the shirts. The Bold weight was designed by Paul Barnes, and the family was later filled out to five weights by Miguel Reyes.

Neue Haas Grotesk Agate

The 2013 year end issue of Bloomberg Businessweek featured a long section of very dense spreads of hard data from various industries, showing a snapshot of the current state of many companies. Creative director Richard Turley commissioned an Agate version of Neue Haas Grotesk in a number of duplexed weights, to cram tons of information into this section. Compared to the existing Text version, which is drawn for use around 8pt to 12pt, the Agate, drawn for use at 4pt to 6pt, has a larger x-height, smaller cap height, looser spacing overall, and ink traps to counteract the effects of ink on paper, which has a dramatic effect on text set at such small sizes.

Duplex

Danish newspaper design specialists Ribergård + Munk commissioned a pair of headline typefaces from us as part of a sweeping overhaul of well over a dozen daily newspapers published throughout Sweden by MittMedia. Berton Hasebe designed Duplex Serif and Sans to solve a very specific problem for this newspaper group. A new format was being developed for all of their titles, to decrease ineffeciencies in production and to allow the different titles to more easily share a portion of their stories. However, as publishers of both upmarket and downmarket papers, the owners wanted to keep the general character of each paper intact: louder volume and more of a feeling of immediacy in the downmarket tabloids, and a quieter, more respectable tone of voice in the upmarket tabloids. The solution to this problem was a set of serif and sans serif typefaces with precisely the same spacing, so they could be swapped out to change the character of a page without affecting the copyfit. Duplex Sans is adapted from Guardian Sans Headline, and the Serif is influenced by the variations on Caslon that were popular for news headlines in the early 20th century.

Duplex

The weights are offset by one step, meaning that the Sans weight matches the widths of the next lightest Serif weight, i.e. Sans Semibold > Serif Regular

Mixing different widths in a single headline was a signature of how Patrick Li and his team used Schnyder in T, the New York Times Style magazine between 2013 and 2019. Schnyder Titling was built to make it easier to implement this effect, with three widths of capitals combined into a single font and all kerned together. Uppercase is the widest proportion, lowercase the middle, and small caps the narrowest.

Houston

A Venetian Oldstyle for news, drawn for Roger Black’s redesign of the Houston Chronicle in 2003. The basic structures are based on British Monotype's Italian Old Style, which was based on William Morris's Golden Type. The italic (particularly the alternate italic used in feature sections) also borrows from Nebiolo Jenson Oldstyle, and there is a influence from ATF Jenson Oldstyle in places as well. The Bold has much shorter serifs than the Roman, so it can be spaced tightly
