FontShop Friday Five: Postcards & Big News!

fridayfive_ut_century expandad

 

We know you’re busy and the Internet is a crowded place, so we’ll try to give you a little reminder on Fridays of what’s going on out there. Below please find five recent FontShop-related threads that you may have missed.

 

FontShop Joins Monotype

This past week, FontShop experienced  a groundbreaking day in our 25 year history, the most important one since our formation. The US typeface company Monotype just announced that they have acquired FontShop and the FontFont library. With the acquisition, in addition to a contemporary typeface library, Monotype gains new customer groups, popular marketing tools and channels as well as a second foothold in the German market, which the group assesses as one of the most vital font markets. “Monotype’s global reach, financial strength and passion for type, combined with FontShop’s complementary typeface expertise, industry relationships and premier typeface collection, is expected to strengthen Monotype’s ability to serve global markets and deliver high-quality, branded experiences across every screen, platform or media property” says the press release published this week.

To read more on the acquisition, visit The FontFeed or in a detailed press release..

Pinterested: The Final Font-ier

Screen Shot 2014-07-11 at 9.46.55 AM

Beam me up, Scotty! Our newest Pinterest board includes typefaces used for the television series and movies of the science fiction cult phenomenon Star Trek over the years. You can read more about the typography of the latest “Star Trek” films on the FontFeed. Fontlist curated by Yves Peters.

Tiina and Monopol

Let’s take a look today at Valentin Brustaux’s Tiina with Tomas Brousil’s Monopol.
Tiina-and-Monopol-1
Tiina is a sturdy, contemporary serif face, drawn from no specific tradition or family line. Its low contrast and generous fit serve to keep the face both approachable and firmly affixed to the page. As a block of text, Tiina holds together exceptionally well.
Tiina-and-Monopol-2 Tiina-and-Monopol-3
Monopol exists solely as an extra compressed, or skyline sans in a range of weights from very thin to as heavy as heavy goes. Its construction is that of the draftsman-inspired alphabets of the early to mid-twentieth century, with several well-considered exceptions in form and fit. Depending on final size, you may need to track Monopol open some. Together, Tiina and Monopol form a fine working relationship, each offering more than sufficient ground to allow its companion’s distinguishing characteristics take the role as the figure.

Tiina-and-Monopol-4 Tiina-and-Monopol-5

JAF Lapture and Geogrotesque Stencil

Today we pair Tim Ahrens’s JAF Lapture, a careful reworking of Albert Kapr’s Leipziger Antiqua, with Eduardo Manso’s Geogrotesque Stencil. I love stencil faces.

JAF-Lapture,-Geogrotesque-Stencil-2

JAF-Lapture,-Geogrotesque-Stencil-7

JAF Lapture comes in a three weights (with companion italics) across a generous four optical sizes arranged below into columns: Caption, [Regular], Subhead, and Display. Geogrotesque Stencil spans seven weights from Thin to Bold.

JAF-Lapture,-Geogrotesque-Stencil-1

The particular stencil variant shown above is one of three. See sets A, B, and C below, the difference between the them being the width of their bridges. A non-stencil version also exists, complete with italics.
JAF-Lapture,-Geogrotesque-Stencil-6

JAF-Lapture,-Geogrotesque-Stencil-4

Above: Geogrotesque Stencil C Light with JAF Lapture Display. The decisions made to preserve some characteristic signs of Lapture’s age and the age of its influences can cause it to come off a bit stern. Pairing it with a contemporary sans, and specifically this lighthearted stencil face, highlights Lapture’s easily overlooked newness and freshness.

JAF-Lapture,-Geogrotesque-Stencil-3

JAF-Lapture,-Geogrotesque-Stencil-8

Great Pairs land here each Wednesday. Today’s was originally written by me and published here on April 24, 2013.
