Lorenzo™ Lorenzo™

The lifetime of Lorenzo de Medici (1449-1492) coincides with the rise of metal type as it displaced broad pen calligraphy for the production of books. This revolution marked the end of formal Western calligraphy, as the industry employed metalworkers who designed type according to geometric measurement while calligraphers were forced to become secretaries who practiced handwriting systems. Renaissance Florence should have witnessed the marriage of calligraphy and typography, just as all the other arts and sciences flourished as classical learning was applied to technical advances; but the metalworkers and geometricians measured, dissected and recast the calligraphic letters by crude indirect methods, and in the end took all the life out of them. Here they languished until digital type has made it possible to render the precise motion of the broad pen stroke into type.

Tabarnak™ Tabarnak™

Tabarnak started out as an assessment and correction of an old concept by George Wilkens. The original idea was for a bold upright alphabet reminiscent of Oz Cooper’s work, but ornamented with some shocard/signage traits. That idea was radically redrawn and reinvented to become a simple 21st century font made to turn heads and induce a friendly rush. Tabarnouche is Tabarnak’s “jittery” incarnation.

Philip Bouwsma is concerned about the survival of calligraphy in the computer age. The last time there was a technology shift of this magnitude, in Gutenberg’s day, the metal workers shouldered out the scribes and set their own stamp on type design, relegating calligraphy to a niche role where it still languishes. Now we are faced with another crisis, surely our last chance to integrate the classical broad pen technique into mainstream typography; but this time we have the tools to convey the subtlety of the finest calligraphy. The machine doesn't simply make a snapshot or a still-life of the calligrapher’s expression; it has now become the tool that can inspire and help the designer with the task on hand.

Hortensia™ Hortensia™

Hortensia, designed around 1900 by Emil Gursch for his own Berlin foundry, is a typeface most expressive of the post-Victorian aesthetic that was all the rage in both Europe and America during the second half of the 19th century and up until the Great War. It is a reduced aesthetic of sharp points and natural curves that almost want to apologize for their own elegance, but clearly embody the simple excitement about the blossoming of industry and crafts during the period. This deco script trend would get a re-run for about a decade on either side of the second World War — especially in the entertainment and financial industries — before giving way to art nouveau and big brush faces.

Grippo™ Grippo™

The first Grippo sketches were done in the 1980s, but only now does it see the light of day as a complete series of interchangeable, layerable fonts. The original single-font concept was simple enough: Double the stems so they become sturdy handles. But then we elected to add more playfulness and versatility to the idea. By spearating the main idea’s layers and producing them as individual fonts, layerability is achieved, and endless possibilities of play and variation arise.
