MyFonts newsletter of features and fonts - December ’04 (issue
Every month we
sign up new foundries who provide new, innovative fonts. In this
9th issue of Rising Stars, we want to show you
three of our top-selling new fonts.
Durer Caps from IHOF is four fonts in one. Based on Albrecht
Durer's 1525 geometric construction of Roman capitals, this font
features A to Z caps only, but with 3 variations: 1) filled; 2)
unfilled; and 3) letters only; the last two feature a unique two-color
overlay option. A font that resembles handwriting done with a watercolor brush?
Why not? Designed by Ray Larabie, Amienne
has full upper and lower case, regular numerals, accents, punctuation
and some pretty handy arrows. And Gf
Script No 4, designed by Matevz Medja, is a newly available
font from Gigofonts.
Did You Know?
Many of our
talented foundries and typographers design their own font flags, or
the artwork you see featured on the MyFonts home page every day. All
of our font flags are actually located on one page:
thing about the font flags is that they show typeface design in use.
Be sure to check them out! You might get some creative ideas yourself
on how to put your fonts to use in your important
Font of the Month |
day we feature a different font on the MyFonts
home page, a great reason to come back to our site. Last
month one of our most popular featured fonts was Carbon-14,
a new font from Conigilio
Type. Carbon-14 comes in different but related designs:
Black Tape, Regular, Neo Lite, Neo Regular, Stout, and Artifacts.
Coniglio tells us that it is “not the first label maker
font ever made, but it is acclaimed as the best label maker
font in the world, because the starting scans contained more
interpretive information, giving the font a far more robust
and realistic look, especially in larger display sizes, an inherent
characteristic in most Coniglio Type creations.”
