      Floodfonts Releases Kontiki Typeface

      The Kontiki typeface digitally simulates a handmade woodprint, but is less expensive to produce and easier to correct. To create the Kontiki fonts, 193 glyphs were manually cut into five wooden plates and carefully printed by hand. From countless test prints, the most charming four were selected and digitized. For each of the 560 characters, the font features four different qualities of print and designer the possibility to create a printed image that is very close to a traditional woodcut.

      Structural Typography

      Bethany Heck: “Some of my favorite typographic pieces are the ones that use typography not only to deliver a message, but to serve as the compositional foundation that a design centers around. Letterforms are just as valuable as graphic elements as they are representations of language, and asking type to serve multiples roles in a composition is a reliable way to elevate the quality of your work.”

      “A change was revealed earlier this year that would essentially delegitimize fonts as software, requiring “each line of the software code” to be written by the author. The development caused some type designers to wonder if US lawmakers might ever reconsider the question of whether a typeface design itself should be legally protected.”
