    bring back more fonts to an unique family

    Yes, there are some fonts having a single family for every weight, not only this one. My fonts come from Adobe Font Folio 11. It would be maybe possible changing only PS and TTF name, it worked well in the past for other ones, but now not. Or the matter is different, or I'm doing something wrong

    Typography Quotes

    According to this site, Panos Vassiliou of Parachute Fonts.
  15. Readers are more likely to believe the content of text when the layout and text quality is easy to understand. For example, the statement “Osorno is a city in Chile” is more likely to be rated true if it’s written in black text on a white background than if it’s written in lower contrast gray text on a gray background. Other studies have shown that readers rate authors as more intelligent when the text is easy to understand. Our project extends this work by studying the effect of well-designed information graphics on table of contents pages. We found that readers who saw the well-designed information graphics, rated the content as more interesting, more clearly written, and more scientifically rigorous. Good design literally changes how we process information.
  16. An article from the OH no Type Company blog.
  17. Type Designer Mark Frömberg shares how important self-made program tools are to his type design practice. Together with TypeThursday founder Thomas Jockin, Mark goes into how you can start to integrate coding into how you make fonts, a brief discussion on Higher Order Interpolation (HOI) and finally do you need to know programing to make variable fonts.

    Indiepop Press

    Indiepop Press is a letterpress print shop in North Wales run by Lisa Harman. It was born from a desire that she had to create designs, prints and stationery using a more tactile, robust and raw median. She undertook a year long course under the tuition of the fine artist Elizabeth Willow. Most of Lisa Harman’s work is created using metal or wooden type and ornaments on our antique presses, turning what was once and industry into an art form; but she also enjoy experimenting with polymer plates and other materials to create unique and tailored pieces. The desire to share this art form with others has lead to the creation of a not for profit, open access letterpress studio in North Wales called ffowndri.
