Founded by Zuzana Licko and Rudy VanderLans, Emigre is a digital type foundry and publisher of the design journal Emigre magazine. Based in Northern California, Emigre was there, in the eye of the storm, when the Macintosh computer was first introduced in 1984. As part of a small group of believers, Emigre used the restrictions of low resolution output to create inventive new typeface designs and layouts. Here are some EULA Highlights you’ll want to keep in mind if when you’re licensing Mrs Eaves, Solex and/or any of their other wonderful fonts.

Summer is almost here and instead of hitting the books and taking exams, our staff studied the gems in the FontShop archives to find this month’s Staff Picks. Here’s a sampling of our June selections:
Aaron’s June pick is Refrigerator Deluxe by Mark Simonson. The beginnings of this design date all the way back to 1988, inspired by vague memories of block-style lettering from Mark’s youth. As time went on, additional styles and alternate glyphs were added, leading to its Deluxe release in 2008. While the basic block-style lettering remains by default, Refrigerator Deluxe can transform into a stylized Art Deco face, both with squared and open shapes, with the flick of an OpenType feature. This User Guide gives a great overview of the available glyphs and features, and how to access them in various applications.
One of my own picks for this month, Xavier Dupré‘s FF Sanuk is deceptively buoyant: its squared veneer gives way to a calligraphic flare. Take the lowercase ‘k’, for example — the foot tails off in a friendly way that you might not expect upon first glance. FF Sanuk has perfect form and character for the web, and was recently released as a Web FontFont.

Theresa chose a blast from the past: Blockhead Alphabet, a classic display face from John Hersey and Emigre. One of my earliest lettering memories as a child is the pride and sense of accomplishment I felt when I discovered how to make letters look three-dimensional. (Of course, this meant that every time a class project required a poster or some other visualization, I had an extra task.) Blockhead Alphabet is reminiscent of that childhood discovery, right down to the details of imperfection.
