  2. Looking for “liquid crystal” or “LCD” will give you plenty of commercial or free options for the numbers. The small text appears to be a condensed cut of Helvetica. A free alternative would be Liberation Sans Narrow. download at MyFonts
  3. I am trying to identify the type faces used in this VFD display. The design sheet says that Letraset Sheets 3122 and 3123 were used in the creation of the display. I have attached the drawing snip with the display characters. What I would like is the type face name and whether there are any free or commercial digital equivalents. Thank you!

    A Variable Fonts Primer

    “The goal of this site is to show you how variable fonts tick. Discover how they can benefit user interface (UI) design, accessibility, and long-form reading, and how they push the boundaries of skillful typographic expression on the web.”

    @Kevin Thompson - I have the book Reynolds Stone Engravings and get lost in it as often as I can.

    I'm sure something was lost in translation. Apologies.

We encourage all the 2018–2019 or 2019–2020 graduates to submit their unique typeface design projects, even if they are unfinished. We are looking for your fresh and inspiring ideas with no limitations on styles, scripts, or visual approach.”

    Janet has already been discussed here at length in another thread. And Ralf is perfectly correct. Reynolds Stone’s original wood engraving of the Janet alphabet was eventually translated into a metal typeface, not the other way round. A digital version exists as well—its use is tightly controlled and limited by Reynolds Stone’s estate, but did appear in the promotional materials for The Phantom Thread (starring Daniel Day Lewis, whose family was close friends of the Stones).

    Mistaken about what exactly? I didn’t claim that he never created typefaces. I only assumed that the image shown in the first post is not typeset.

    @Michał Wojtkowski Reynolds Stone did design typefaces and not just carve. Ralf Herrmann is forgivably mistaken. There is his original private typeface named 'Janet' for his wife and used by Litton Cheney Press. There is also his reworking of Minerva commissioned by Linotype that was introduced to the public in 'Linotype Matrix', no. 21, Jan. 1955. It was discontinued in the early 1970s. No digital versions exist, although KTKM have produced a typeface after Reynolds Stone called KM Minerva, but it is not published.

  18. “Earth” and “Cats • Internet • Bacon” are set in Steiner, Canada Type’s revival of Swing (1974). Dandelion JF is another digital revival of the same face. The script is Southern Aire.

    answered Font used by Nova TV (Croatia), 2019–present

    FS Untitled. download at MyFonts
  20. Exactly a year ago today, on 25 March 2019, the Croatian channel Nova TV introduced a new logo and graphics package after over a decade. Its identity presentation uses a somewhat techie font, a bit similar to IBM Plex Sans in some respects. What could it be?

    @Ralf Herrmann Hi Ralf, my client found it in his pc and send this to me through email. His previous designer made this logo years ago. My client lost the Ai file...
  22. As with OpenType it will take some years, before the majority of designers and major foundries, developers of font software and applications support the major features in such a way that the majority of users can use them without any trouble. As said before, it is only a matter of time. Right now many of us are experiencing trouble with variable fonts with more than one axis. Also taking care that Variable Fonts have the same design quality when they are based on existing families. It can be rather time consuming to support the same weight- and width-specific design changes. But these are things that can be overcome. I expect that Google, Adobe and Microsoft will replace their fonts with Variable Fonts, just as they did with Type1 and first generation TrueType fonts. Users will get used to this. The others will follow 🙂 All kinds of beautiful and interesting niches will be around with us for a very long time. Probably much longer than expected.
