      Raising the quality of Google Fonts

      “Since the new Google Fonts directory launched in May, we’ve been hard at work improving the quality of the fonts in our collection. In June we invited a team of typeface designers and font engineers from around the world to our New York City offices to kick off a 4-months font improvement project. Each member of the team was selected for their extensive industry experience in type design or font production.”

      New font foundry has opened: The Ivy Foundry

      New font foundry has opened:
      “My focus is to create high quality typefaces with a contemporary aesthetic” Jan Maack says. He has designed fonts for the past 10 years. All his fonts have been published by FontFont, but now he has started a foundry of his own. For the last year he has put all his effort into the type business resulting in an independent type foundry, which right now has two font families, 10 styles each, on the shelves.

      Have a look at theivyfoundry.com
