Gustavs A. Grinbergs about himself:
"In 1987 in addition to the traditional tools such as brush, indian ink and paper, I started using digital technology for type design. Since then my main fields of work are creating my own original typeface designs and adapting Latin fonts for international use.
Since 1990 I have been cooperating with Latvian corporation Tilde, SIA in font development for all the European languages. For the fonts containing Adobe Standard Character set, I design graphically identical and compatible Cyrillic character sets. Baltic, Central and Eastern European as well as Turkish and Cyrillic characters are added to the original character set. Over 500 fonts from Bitstream Type Library have been prepared for multilingual use. Multilingual adaptations of well-known and best looking Latin alphabets are widely used by newspapers and book publishers both in Latvia and abroad."
Samples of fonts adapted for use in Cyrillic script are shown at http://www.tilde.lv/fonts/fonts/languages/cyrillic.html
Samples of Latin fonts adapted for use in all the European languages are shown at http://www.tilde.lv/fonts/fonts/languages/latin_based.html
