About Softmachine Font Family

Everything about Softmachine—the rounded terminals, the bold weight, the letter forms and proportions—is designed with one objective: to create a uniform distance between letter strokes, in and between characters. This is achieved by the shape, spacing and kerning of letters, and by using contextual alternates to control adjacent glyph combinations. The effect translates, in the Outline font, into an overlapping outline of remarkably even thickness. Also included: an alternate stylistic set.

About Shinntype

These are Nick Shinn’s designs, firmly rooted in the best of the European and North American typographic tradition as it continually evolves. They are solid in text, providing all the bells and whistles of expert typography, and smart in display, with an impeccable attention to detail. Building on his experience as an art director and graphic designer in the 1980s and 90s, and as a pioneer of digital media, Nick launched Shinntype—one of the first online type foundries—in 1998. Shinntype now presents a rich and eclectic catalogue of unique fonts, tailored to contemporary taste.
