I Love Typography

Reminga bold italic

A very brief post about a typeface from a type designer I’m particularly fond of. FF Reminga from Xavier Dupré is a great little text face with a sumptuous calligraphic italic. FontFont is offering the Bold Italic completely free of charge for a limited time. So, be sure to take it for a spin. And, be sure to check out some of Xavier’s other types.

Download Reminga Bold Italic. Be sure to let me know if you use it. Would love to see.

Thanks to Ivo for the heads up!

    It’s really beautiful. I love the r, p, and v.
    I was delighted as well when FF added Capsa to their library. It’s one of my favorite typefaces.

  2. Josef
    Yes, it is. In fact, I’m surprised that Xavier Dupré isn’t better known. Perhaps I should interview him …

  3. For some reason I really like these letters. It is a very nice typeface and I think I just might use it on a project. Thanks for sharing John.

  4. I was delighted as well when FF added Capsa to their library.

    Just a clarification between FontFont and FontShop (I know it can be confusing): FontShop is a retailer offering fonts from many different foundries, of which DSType is one with their Capsa, and FontFont is another, their “house brand”.

    Read more about the new FF Reminga here.

  5. Thanks for spreading the word of FF Reminga, John. I don’t think Xavier isn’t well known. He publishes his typefaces through several foundries [FontFont, Emigre, Font Bureau] with huge success. But I would like to read an interview with him.

    @ Josef Go-Oco: Capsa – that I like as well – isn’t part of the FontFont Library but of the FontShop. Both the FontShop and the FontFont Library belongs to FSI FontShop International. [I know it’s confusing ;]

  6. Xavier is an accomplished typeface designer. A guy with a clear analyse of the past, history, calligraphy roots in order to create contemporary and unique typefaces. Bravo Monsieur.

    FF Ivo would make a nice name for a typeface :)

    About Xavier: I guess what I’m trying to say is that I wish he were better known.
    Thanks (to Stephen too) for the FF/FS clarification. I think many confuse the two. Will we see a redesigned FontFont site in 2009? FS has a gorgeous site that’s a pleasure to use; the FF site on the other hand is beginning to look like a relic of Web 0.5.

    Very nice. But now I’m tempted to buy the other weights and styles.
    Have a stellar 2009 Johno!! Thanks for your hard work in 2008, & for your commitment to ILT.

  9. Josef Go-Oco

    Thank you Stephen and Ivo for the clarifications. Yes, they were confusing at first glance.

    And I really want to know Xavier’s type design process (because I share the same “hate” for v, w, x, y, z – those diagonals are hard work, especially for a beginner like I). He’s also been interviewed (as well as Martin Majoor) by students from the University of Applied Sciences Wiesbaden. You can find the interviews as pdf files just under Reminga Bold Italic.

  10. Yeah, that’s right, Josef. There’s already an interview with Xavier.

    Will we see a redesigned FontFont site in 2009? FS has a gorgeous site that’s a pleasure to use; the FF site on the other hand is beginning to look like a relic of Web 0.5.

    Redesigning the FS site was [and still is] a huge task with a high priority. We know about the old school FontFont website and actually we are working on it as well. I hope to link to a new site this year!

  11. Nice! A free download that’s actually usable.

  12. This might upset some people but I’ve gotta say I’m falling out of love with the old italic at the mo. Think it’s had it’s day in my bag of tricks unfortunately.

  13. Thanks for the recommendation! I really like this type, especially because of its fresh and consistent appeal. I used it for the 404-page of my website and think it makes a good job.

  14. NIce font john. Thanks for share it with free download ;) it will be going to my font collection.
