Lucas de Groot

Luc(as) de Groot graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts (KABK) in The Hague, the Netherlands, under typography teacher Gerrit Noordzij. For four years, he worked at the Amsterdam design agency BRS Premsela Vonk, now called Eden Design. In 1993 he moved to Berlin, Germany, to become typographic director at the renowned company MetaDesign. At MetaDesign, Luc(as) worked on a large number of corporate identity projects, including the design of logos, magazine concepts and client-specific type designs. He reworked Erik Spiekermann's FF Meta (which became MetaPlus) and during his evenings managed to finish the largest digital type family ever - which was released as Thesis in 1994.

Consolas™ Consolas™

Consolas is aimed for use in programming environments and other circumstances where a monospaced font is specified. All characters have the same width, like old typewriters, making it a good choice for personal and business correspondance. The improved Windows font display allowed a design with proportions closer to normal text than traditional monospaced fonts like Courier. This allows for more comfortably reading of extended text on screen. OpenType features include hanging or lining numerals; slashed, dotted and normal zeros; and alternative shapes for a number of lowercase letters. The look of text can be tuned to personal taste by varying the number of bars and waves.

LF Taz III LF Taz III

The Taz type family was originally developed as a headline typeface for taz - short for Tageszeitung - a nation-wide German daily. It was, and still is, the cornerstone of the paper’s strong, trustworthy visual identity. Says Luc(as): "For a headline font, you want the lines to be as closely line-spaced as possible. The accents on the capitals - a very common feature in German - cannot take up too much space." Ascenders and descenders were kept short for maximum impact.

Type designer Luc(as) de Groot has a large archive of lettering he drew by hand, often to accompany the quirky cartoons which he made in his visual diaries. Only a few of these alpahabets have been digitized into full-fledged typefaces. Punten (Dutch for “points” or “spikes”) is one of them. It comes in three styles of varying legibility: Punten Straight, Punten Extremo, and Punten Rondom (Dutch for “all around”).
