Font Designer – Kelvin Tan Teck Loong
The designer Kelvin Tan Teck Loong created the font Linotype Transis™ in 1999. Linotype Transis is part of the TakeType Library, chosen from the entries of the 1999 International Digital Type Design Contest. This fun font is young and unconventional, combining contrasting elements to produce something completely new and different. The left sides of the characters look light and delicate, the right sides look as thought they were drawn with a thick brush stroke, resulting in a unique overall look. The restless characters almost seem to dance and under no circumstances will they build a regular, straight line of text. The lively Linotype Transis should be used exclusively for headlines in larger point sizes and set with generous line and character spacing.
