Linotype wishes all readers a Happy New Year
|! Welcome to the Current Issue of the LinoLetter !|
News Alert! We have a new program highlight for the upcoming TypoTechnica conference to bring to your attention: Quark will present the first public demo of the unreleased QuarkXPress 7! Come to TypoTechnica and experience this veteran application’s new typographic features live. More information below ...
In order to ease your plunge into a new creative year, we rummaged through our library for a pair of great fonts to recommend, and pulled out two of the winners from our last International Type Design Contest: Hildegard and Samba. Hildegard is a contemporary sans serif text face in the Dutch style. Its cool assuredness in text stands in stark contrast to the liveliness of its fellow contest-winner Samba. A new interpretation of Brazilian Art Deco graphics and lettering, Samba offers a warm, loud feeling unobtainable in most other typeface designs. Aside from newer designs like these, we enjoy reintroducing you each month to our old favorites as well. You may recall that we featured the types of Lucien Bernhard in our August issue; this month, we are pleased to present another classic face from our type archives: Serpentine, a forward-thinking design from 1972. This retro design has become one of our decade’s most popular display fonts. To close out this month’s LinoLetter, we’d like to bring your attention to a new design guide that we’ve published on our site, an article entitled "Pleasures of Design."
Have fonts of fun!
