About New Clear Era Font Family

New Clear Era is part of a large ongoing project investigating classicism and legibility. The regular version is the base font. Numerous permutations will be performed on this underlying skeleton. Also investigated are the ideas of an extended type family, and trying to understand what makes a contemporary legible, serif typeface. The Mix versions combine characters from the Roman and Display to make quirky fonts that can be comfortably used for setting text. Mix One is the most quirky; Mix Three is the least.

About fontBoy

fontBoy was launched in the summer of 1995 to manufacture and distribute fonts designed by Bob Aufuldish and Kathy Warinner of the design office, Aufuldish & Warinner. The foundry has released fonts ranging from the quirky and handmade to the geometrically precise. The current direction of fontBoy's work incorporates more classical elements into the fonts. The designers try to stay focused on what interests them rather than trying to chase trends. Derided and celebrated as being part of the early 90's grunge movement, the designers see themselves connected to the wide-open early 20th century version of modernism rather than the formulaic high modernism of the international style. Since its founding, fontBoy's award-winning fonts have been published widely, included in: Indie Fonts 1, Critique Magazine's Big Crit, Graphis Digital Fonts 1, Typology, by Steven Heller and Louise Fili, Extreme Fonts, by Spencer Drate, emotional_digital, by Alexander Branczyk, The Designer's Guide to Web Type, and The Designer's Guide to Symbol & Icon Fonts Online.
