Earlier this year we released Erik van Blokland’s Action Condensed. 8 months later, we’re surprised to see that it is primarily being used in print so far. To help get inspiration flowing, we asked our friends at Project Projects to create an interface showing Action Condensed doing what it does best.
We are delighted to announce our new Webfonts Showcase, a set of sixteen microsites, each showing a different family from our library and highlighting a different aspect of its personality. See it now at showcase.commercialtype.com.
Christian Schwartz will reprise his lecture from last year's Ampersand conference, expanded to show some new projects and to reflect the fact that the world of webfonts continues to evolve at a rapid pace.
New York design studio Project Projects have redesigned poets.org, the online home of the Academy of American Poets. A major component of the redesign is a new digital revival of William Addison Dwiggins's Electra, first issued by Linotype in 1935, made with the kind permission of Monotype.
Christian Schwartz will reprise his appearance from the Ampersand Conference earlier this summer in Brighton, joining some of the same speakers and some new faces at the first Ampersand to take place in New York City. Christian will close the day with a talk called "Webfonts are just fonts".
Christian Schwartz will be joining Erik Spiekermann, The Guardian's Andy Hume, The BBC's Kutlu Çanlıoğlu, & other luminaries on online typography at the 2013 Ampersand Conference in Brighton. Christian will end the day with a talk called "Webfonts are just fonts".
