Season’s Greetings

Spreading Hope This Season

As the year draws to a close, all of us here at The Font Bureau wish you peace, happiness, and hope in this holiday season.

We also wish to extend our thanks to all the loyal clients and customers who have supported us these past 20 years. The design industry has changed a lot in that time, and we’re proud to have played our part providing impeccably crafted and inherently usable fonts in a variety of formats and styles.

In the coming year, you can look forward to further developments as we plan to release several new original designs, roll out additional full-featured OpenType fonts with extended language support, and unveil our Web fonts licensing framework.

Until then: Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for the New Year.

Our holiday greeting this year features Richard Lipton’s Sloop WGL, supporting a pan-European WGL character set, available for license through our Studio library.

Haley’s article has also been posted online in the Columns section of CA’s website.

Webfonts Week with David Berlow

The type and design communities continue to be abuzz about the many developments in the arena of fonts for the web. The FontFeed blog devoted a week in November to a series of webcast interviews on the topic. Font Bureau founder David Berlow reflected on the state of affairs in his own inimitable style — touching on earthquakes, puppets, his own new-found optimism, and FB’s intention to support “whatever is required by our users.”

Cyrus Highsmith Thinks Löçãlly

Sometimes its nice to have a change of pace from developing large, workhorse typeface families with ginormous global character sets. In a recent blog post, Cyrus Highsmith shares one such pleasant diversion — drawing a scripty masthead for a hometown magazine, Rhode Island Monthly. It’s good to see that the Providence folks realize what a remarkable local resource they have.
