Sabon LT Pro In the early 1960s, the German Master Printers’ Association requested that a new typeface be designed and produced in identical form on both Linotype and Monotype machines so that text and technical composition would match. Walter Cunz at Stempel responded by commissioning Jan Tschichold to design a new version of Claude Garamond’s serene and classical Roman. Its bold, and particularly its italic styles are limited by the requirements of Linotype casting machines, forcing the character widths of a given letter to match between styles, giving the italic its characteristic narrow f. The family’s name is taken from Jacques Sabon, who introduced Garamond’s Romans to Frankfurt. Sabon has long been a favorite of typographers for setting book text, due to its smooth texture, and in large part because Tschichold’s book typography remains world famous.

Baskerville URW

Baskerville is a serif typeface designed in the 1750s by John Baskerville (1706–1775) in Birmingham, England, and cut into metal by punchcutter John Handy. Baskerville is classified as a transitional typeface, intended as a refinement of what are now called old-style typefaces of the period, especially those of his most eminent contemporary, William Caslon. The curved strokes are more circular in shape, and the characters became more regular. These changes created a greater consistency in size and form, influenced by the calligraphy Baskerville had learned and taught as a young man. Baskerville's typefaces remain very popular in book design and there are many modern revivals, which often add features such as bold type which did not exist in Baskerville's time.

Fenice Pro ITC font (pronounced fe-nee-chay) is the work of designer Aldo Novarese and was influenced by the traditional designs of Didot, Bodoni, and Ibarra. It was originally produced by the Berthold foundry in 1977, and was licensed by International Typeface Corporation in 1980. It displays the fine serifs of a Bodoni but blends such characteristics with a contemporary structural style. Fenice Pro ITC is perfect for applications requiring the economical use of space. With its large x-height and condensed proportions and spiky vertical terminals, Fenice Pro ITC is a contemporary interpretation of the crisp moderns. The range of weights provides flexibility for display applications or short text blocks.

Museo Slab is a robust slab serif with Museo's friendliness. Designed by Jos Buivenga, the Museo Slab font family is a perfect match for Museo Sans. Buivenga explains that the origin of Museo is to be found in his particular love for uppercase ‘U’ and a spontaneous mental picture that came to him concerning the form of the font’s serifs. With his vision of stems bent into semi-slab serifs in mind, Buivenga created Museo, whereby the almost total lack of differentiation in line width additionally emphasizes the linear character of the letters. The Museo Slab font family contains 6 weights & 12 styles. Each font contains approximately 455 glyphs with extensive OpenType features: ligatures, case sensitive forms, proportional & tabular oldstyle figures, proportional & tabular lining figures, fractions, superiors, inferiors, numerators and denominators.

Brandon Grotesque Brandon Grotesque is a sans serif type family of six weights plus matching italics. It was designed by Hannes von Döhren in 2009/10. Influenced by the geometric-style sans serif faces that were popular during the 1920s and 30s, the fonts are based on geometric forms that have been optically corrected for better legibility. Brandon Grotesque has a functional look with a warm touch. While the thin and the black weights are great performers in display sizes the light, regular and medium weights are well suited to longer texts. The small x-height and the restrained forms lend it a distinctive elegance. Brandon Grotesque is equipped for complex, professional typography. The OpenType fonts have an extended character set to support Central and Eastern European as well as Western European languages.

FF Scala Sans is a humanist sans-serif typeface designed by Dutch designer Martin Majoor in 1993 for the Vredenburg Music Center in Utrecht, the Netherlands. It was designed as a companion to Majoor's earlier serif old style typeface FF Scala, designed in 1990. The family has 10 weights, ranging from Light to Black in Condensed and Normal (including italics) and is ideally suited for advertising and packaging, book text, editorial and publishing, logo, branding and creative industries, small text, wayfinding and signage as well as web and screen design.

Trade Gothic Next LT Pro Trade Gothic Next is the 2008 revision of Jackson Burke’s design. Developed over a prolonged period of time, the original Trade Gothic showed many inconsistencies. Under the direction of Linotype’s Type Director Akira Kobayashi, American type designer Tom Grace, a graduate of the MA Typeface Design in Reading, redesigned, revised and expand the Trade Gothic family. Many details were improved, such as the terminals and stroke endings, symbols, and the spacing and kerning. Moreover, there are newly added compressed widths and heavy weights perfect for setting even more powerful headlines. Trade Gothic Next brings more features and better quality for today’s demanding typographers.

Other characteristics of Humanist typefaces are small x-height, and low contrast between strokes.

Sabon LT Pro was influenced by the types of Claude Garamond with the italic taking inspiration from Robert Granjon, a contemporary of Garamond’s. It’s a quintessential body text serif that is popular in book design, however, it doesn’t seemed to be used much on the web.

Design

Transitional serif fonts date back to the 18th century and they are the bridge between Humanist and Old Style serif fonts to Modern typefaces. One of their features is that they have much more contrast between thick and thin strokes, also they have a more vertical axis.

Baskerville's typeface was part of an ambitious project to create books of the greatest possible quality. Compared to earlier designs popular in Britain, Baskerville increased the contrast between thick and thin strokes, making the serifs sharper and more tapered, and shifted the axis of rounded letters to a more vertical position.

Didone, or modern, serif typefaces, which first emerged in the late 18th century, are characterized by extreme contrast between thick and thin lines. These typefaces have a vertical stress and thin serifs with a constant width, with minimal bracketing (constant width).

Fenice Pro ITC is a neoclassical design in the tradition of Didot and Bodoni. Its 18th century predecessors exhibit a highly sophisticated design philosophy, and represented the ultimate refinement of the typographic letter at that time. Fenice Pro ITC retains the distinctive characteristics and subtle refinements of earlier designs, but it also accommodates today’s technology and typographic needs.

A slab serif (also called mechanistic, square serif, antique or Egyptian) typeface is a type of serif typeface characterized by thick, block-like serifs. Serif terminals may be either blunt and angular, or rounded. Slab serifs were invented in and most popular during the nineteenth century. Slab serifs form a large and varied genre.

Museo Slab's design came out of the creator Jos Buivenga playing around with Museo Sans. He added slab serifs while also adjusting weight, width, and contrast and discovered how much he enjoy it and decided to refine it further to what it is now today.

Design

Influenced by Bauhaus designers in the early 20th century, Geometric Sans typefaces are sans serif fonts derived from simple geometric shapes – circles, triangles and rectangles. With minimal contrast and even widths, Geometric typefaces have a cohesive, but contemporary feel.

Brandon Grotesque was heavily influenced by the geometric typefaces that originated in the 1920s, taking a little more influence from Erbar rather than the more well-known design from that time period, Futura. According to Hannes von Döhren, he wanted to create a font that would possess a certain softness and warmth based on magazines he was fasincated by given to him by his father that were from 1920s and 1930s.

Design

Humanist sans-serif typefaces are characterized by the presence of the hand, an uppercase similar in proportion to the monumental Roman capitals, a lowercase similar in form to the Carolingian script, and an overall more organic structure. Humanist sans-serif typefaces frequently have a true italic rather than a sloped roman.

According to Majoor, the FF Scala Sans font was designed by basically cutting off the serifs and lowering the contrast. This "cutting" aspect is noticeable in the terminals and apexes. The overall design takes its structural cues from traditional Renaissance Romans, rather than following an established sans serif model.
