Typewriter Fonts: The special flair for your designs
Typewriter fonts also have a second link. The first digital computer fonts were also monospace and restricted to the basic letter forms. Their pure, digital flair is still valued in the music and party scene, to some extent. Below we present two very special representatives of the genre in more detail.
Univers Next Typewriter
The humanist sans serif Univers® was designed by Adrian Frutiger in the 1950s and has enjoyed uninterrupted popularity ever since. At the end of the 1990s, Frutiger and Akira Kobayashi published a major revision of the font. They later named this new version Univers® Next.
Univers® Next Typewriter is a sub-family with fixed width and correspondingly adapted letter forms. The most striking changes are the serif-like crossbars in narrow letters like the “i”, “j” or “l”.
Univers Next Typewriter combines the friendly nature of Univers with the charm of a typewriter font. Use the font for short notes, messages or to directly address the customer, for example. The striking shapes of Univers Next Typewriter can also draw attention in headlines, however.
OCR A Tribute
The United States Government originally commissioned OCR-A as the first machine-readable font in the 1960s. Because of its in part idiosyncratic, technical shapes, the font won many fans in many different applications. Miriam Röttgers worked on the font in 2006, revised and supplemented the letters and published OCR A Tribute™. The font is available in two versions, monospaced and proportional, each with three weights. To better make use of space, the letters of the monospaced version have modifications typical of this genre, thus emphasizing the special character of the font. Röttgers added old-style figures, which is somewhat unconventional for this genre.
With its technical, futuristic and digital radiance, OCR A Tribute has earned a fixed place in the hearts of designers. In recent years, this genre of fonts was discovered by the world of electronic music.
