Work on the SST® typeface began with a brief drawn jointly by Sony and Monotype’s design teams, a sans with both humanist and grotesk elements made to function reliably on screen, on the surfaces of physical products and on paper, in multiple language systems.
TypeTogether is cultivating a formidable library of fonts, from its founders Veronika and José, greats like Gerard Unger, and — we’re pleased to say — many young voices new to the type community. Take a look at two of their most recent releases. An able sans for wayfinding that fits quite a few briefs, and a pleasant text face for UI work and long reads on-screen.
Berlin-based illustrator and font designer Ulrike Rausch designs fun handwriting and icon fonts under the font label LiebeFonts. Her most recent release, LiebeGerda, is a brush font that imitates perfectly a lively script. In this tutorial, I will show how the clever OpenType features of LiebeGerda are used for revamping the headlines of the German food magazine “Fischbrötchen Deluxe”.
