I Love Typography

The making of Acorde

by Stefan Willerstorfer After five years of intensive work, my type family Acorde is finally on the market. It is a reliable workhorse for large, demanding design projects. The typeface’s name is derived from a corporate design typeface. However, Acorde is not only suitable for corporate design programmes but for information design and editorial design […]

The Vignelli Twelve

We use way too many fonts Though I have the utmost respect for Massimo Vignelli, and am a fan of his work, his we use too many typefaces is just plain wrong. It’s by no means the first time Vignelli has voiced these views. If you have no idea what I’m writing about, then watch […]

The first one’s the hardest

by Jeremy Mickel I remember clearly the day I was waiting for the 6 train at 33rd Street and Park Avenue in New York. I had taken pictures of type on the street for some time, but there was something here that caught my eye. There was a plastic sign on a door with letters […]

Sunday Type: Freudian Type

The Psychopathology of Fonts Yet another week whizzes by. I’m in the UK now. I must say, that living in Japan, I don’t miss the British weather. First, apologies to everyone who tried to access iLT yesterday, and got a blank page. My host Media Temple has been dreadful of late. iLT was off-line for […]

Sunday Type

National Feijoa Is it really Sunday again? Well, for some of you it will be Saturday, so here’s your Saturday/Sunday—or better still— Weekend Type. Oh, but first a quick announcement: the great response to the announcement of FF Meta Serif took us beyond the half a million page views. Thanks to everyone for being a […]

At last! FF Meta Serif

Wedding Bells I would usually never post two articles in a single day (I won’t be making a habit of it). However, the excitement was just too much, and the news too hot. Many of you will be familiar with Spiekermann’s wonderful FF Meta. But for years FF Meta lived a lonely existence with no […]

Sunday Type

Fuel Injected Links I was oh so tempted to post the first in our series of So You Want to Make a Font, but it’s Sunday; and Sunday should be one of those easy days. And what’s more Sunday is my day off (from iLT, at least), so on the odd Sunday, I’ll post some […]

Kinescope

If fonts were chocolate You may, or may not, have noticed the featured fonts over on the right and down a little — in that black box. These fonts are sometimes new releases, or sometimes older ones that I’ve rediscovered. The wonderful thing about discovering and rediscovering all these great faces, is that I have […]

fresh Faces, fine Fonts: Montag

A New Rounded Sans Serif in Town Today we’re going to take a brief look at a new face on the block, namely Montag. I’ve just purchased this one, and I love it. In my excitement, I must be careful not to overuse it. Montag is one of the latest typefaces from Jeremy Dooley of […]

Smashing typography

The Smashing magazine blog is one of my design favourites. The articles are often great sources of inspiration; sometimes. 80 Beautiful Typefaces for Professional Design. Let’s take a look at over 80 gorgeous typefaces for professional design, based upon suggestions from designers and web-developers all over the world. The post — besides the examples (there […]
