Lars Bergquist

Swedish type designer Lars Bergquist describes himself as “a living fossil from the age of lead type.” He was born in 1936 and trained originally as a historian but left university life and went into publishing -- of encyclopedias and reference literature‚Äîlearning that side of typography from the bottom up. The bottom line being Linotype machines like Jurassic Singer machines, smelling of hot lead and oil, and flatbed presses behaving like demented mangles. He later used to say that he was a typographer who had gone all the way from cuneiform to digital.

4 fonts from $24.00
New Millennium Linear™ New Millennium Linear™

New Millennium Linear is one of three font families that share a common name, a common design philosophy, a common x-height, and basic character shapes. (The others are New Millennium and New Millennium Sans; all three work well together.) New Millennium Linear is a “monotone” newer version of the Sans face whose smooth, geometric, “Gothic” look gives it a completely different personality. The typeface comes with regular, bold, italic, and bold italic styles, each with a complete character set. New Millennium Linear might best be used in captions, callouts, labels, titles, and similar display situations.

Paestum™ Paestum™

Paestum is a Latin typeface inspired by Greek inscriptions of the 6th and 5th centuries B.C. Its name comes, suitably, from the Latin name for Poseidonia, a former Greek city south of Naples whose two remaining Doric temples have been on antiquities tours since at least the 1700s. Others have scanned this terrain before, of course, but earlier designs failed to supply a lower case. Although Paestum includes complete upper- and lowercase alphabets, diacritics, numerals, and essential punctuation, it does not have many unhistorical glyphs -- such as currency symbols and the @ sign. Paestum comes with three weights: light, medium, and heavy.

New Millennium™ New Millennium™

New Millennium is one of three font families that share a common name, a common design philosophy, a common x-height, and basic character shapes. (The others are New Millennium Sans and New Millennium Linear; all three work well together.) New Millennium is a serif face of what some might describe as a “modern style.” But although it has flat serifs, it differs markedly from, say, Bodoni or Didot -- especially in the italic, which is a radical departure from tradition. (The bold styles are in fact sans-serif, identical to those of New Millennium Sans.) There’s also a nice, dark Headline style for display text. New Millennium is a distinctive, legible, accessible text face that might be well suited to, say, scientific documentation.

Midnight™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

2 fonts from $29.00
Midnight™ Midnight™

Midnight is a neon-sign-style font with two “gauges,” Light and Bright. Works best when used in reverse against a dark background. The styles have a 2:3 ratio, as do the gauges of the neon “tubing,” making both fonts equally useful across a range of applications. An elegant, stylish, wonderfully rendered display font.

Pressroom™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

5 fonts from $24.00
Pressroom™ Pressroom™

Pressroom is a modern “legibility face,” designed to be easy-to-read under even the harshest conditions. As you might expect of such a typeface, it’s got an ample x-height, robust serifs, and minimalist descenders -- but Pressroom displays more grace and allure than most families of this kind. (Its designer nonetheless describes Pressroom as having “the sophistication of a crocodile.”) Pressroom has regular, italic, and bold italic styles, along with a special black weight intended for headlines, callouts, and other display uses. Numerals are semi-cap in all but the black, where they are fully lining. Would work well in newsletters, flyers, office forms, or even periodicals.

Diorite™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

4 fonts from $24.00
Diorite™ Diorite™

Diorite is modern face built on classical letterforms -- but left with a bit of residual roughness. Some might call Diorite forthright, others brutal. (It reminded the designer of the dark, hard igneous rock of the same name, treasured by the ancient Egyptians for statuary.) The typeface has a relatively chunky, four-style family; the italics are true cancellaresca corsiva, also writ heavy. “The cancellaresca is of course a Gothic design,” notes the designer. "Just use a broader pen, and you'll see!" Has four styles: regular, bold, cursive, and cursive bold.
