  • Superior and Inferior Figures

    Fonts.com: About Fonts
    23 Sep 2014 | 6:03 am
    Superior and inferior figures are numerals that are smaller versions of full-size lining figures. These diminutive numerals most commonly appear in diagonal fractions, but they are also used for footnotes and endnotes, chemical and mathematical notations, and occasionally for indicating the cents in prices in display settings.
  • New from Adobe Type: Open-sourced font development tools

    Adobe has established a strong relationship with the open source community over the years, and the shape of it today is as robust as ever. We’ve released a growing set of open source font families on GitHub – Source Sans, Source Code, Source Serif, and most recently Source Han Sans – that we continue to update and expand. And last year, we contributed Adobe’s CFF font rasterization code to the FreeType project, and as a result Android, Chrome OS, and a growing number of Linux distributions now produce better-looking text from CFF fonts. (CFF is the Compact Font Format, used in many…

All kinds and types of letters: small, large, drawn, sketched, painted, rough, smooth, serif, sans serif, script, roman, italic, oblique, digitized, old and new, uppercase, lowercase, all materials and media, three dimensional… Yes, I love letters, except for those that are poorly or incorrectly proportioned.

  • Pan-CJK Partner Profile: SinoType

    Caleb Belohlavek
    18 Sep 2014 | 12:58 pm
    While developing Source Han Sans, Adobe and Google worked with three different companies to bring the kind of in-country expertise we knew we would need to hit the quality threshold we had set for this typeface family: Iwata Corporation in Japan, Sandoll Communication in Korea, and Changzhou SinoType in China. Over the next couple of weeks we will introduce you to each of them. Pan-CJK fonts can suffer from a major problem. When attempting to create a font which can be used across multiple languages, quite often regional differences are overlooked — undermining the value of the font for…
  • Kit Management is here

    Elliot Jay Stocks
    17 Sep 2014 | 12:10 pm
    For some time now — even before I joined the company — there’s been a Typekit feature I’ve longed for as a user. From the moment my list of kits began to grow, I wanted some sort of kit management tool: a UI that would do a better job than a gigantic drop-down list, and would allow quick access to actions like republishing and deleting. When we rolled out the recent changes to typekit.com in June, including the introduction of the new Kits drop-down, we got some of the way towards that goal. But in lieu of an actual Kit Management page, we simply introduced an updated visual style for…

    This week, we’re looking at two sites with painstakingly-crafted pieces of functional, physical design: some very tangible holds for indoor climbing, and beautiful collection of handmade leather accessories. We love the attention to detail on these websites, the economical design sensibility — and, of course, the typography on display. Menagerie The Menagerie website is a candy store for climbers — particularly anyone setting up their own routes — but even those of us inclined to stay on level ground can appreciate the excellent choice of FF DIN for the typeface on this page.

  • Source Han Sans update: New flavors & minor fixes

    Caleb Belohlavek
    12 Sep 2014 | 9:47 am
    We’ve been extremely happy to see such rapid worldwide adoption for Source Han Sans, Adobe’s open source Pan-CJK font. With seven weights, support for multiple languages, and over 65,000 glyphs per font, the Source Han Sans family is naturally complex – so even when we first released it, we expected that improvements and minor adjustments would be necessary. After further testing, and with some great input from our users, we are happy to announce an updated version: Source Han Sans version 1.001. This release features: Slight modifications to some glyphs to further improve their design…

It’s looking really great, we’ve carried over the cover font, Maison Neue by Timo Gaessner, into the book’s interior text and chapter headings. Like so: Yep, a sans serif font for body copy. Go figure. And even though the printing costs are much lower in Asia, we’re committed to printing the book here in North America. One advantage is a much…

    Like I mentioned in my announcement of the TDC Medal 2014 for contemporary type design powerhouse David Berlow, mid-July was a week of both celebration and sadness in the world of type design and typography. On Tuesday, July 15 Swiss type designer Hans Eduard Meier passed away peacefully, aged 91. If his name doesn’t immediately ring a bell, the name of his typeface certainly will be familiar. Syntax is one of the best-known sans serif typefaces. Even more, I would like to make a case for it being the first true humanist sans, a genre that reached new heights of popularity around the turn…
