Linotype Introduces 19 New Typeface FamiliesNew Linotype releases exclusively in Open Type format (October 28, 2004)
Linotype introduces 19 new typeface families for a variety of practical and specific design applications. From completely developed families like the highly legible and flexible Diverda to just-for-fun fonts like the edgy Sharquefin, Linotype continues to deliver a wide spectrum of up-to-date type solutions to meet the modern user's every demand.
Another highlight is Cisalpin, developed especially for cartographic uses, but as the family works so well in small sizes, it will certainly find plenty of other practical applications as well.
Other fonts range from the modern Danish style of Noa and the classic modern look of Liga Sans to the refreshing collection of icons and pictograms found in Tips – while original display fonts conjure up immediate ideas for application, like the rustic, esoteric feel of AdPro or the luxurious grace of Bodebeck.
Users will also find warm new text fonts like Veronika as well as charming, quill-inspired fonts like Byngve and Caterina. Or for more experimental types, how about the highly constructed Why Square? Or its less inquisitive counterpart Just Square!
Finally, typography specialist André Maassen contributes the highly sophisticated Varius, inspired by the f-holes on a violin built by Giacomo Antonio Stradivarius in 1702 – ideal for a wide range of applications, including, of course, a complete set of beautifully drawn musical symbols.
All of these new fonts from Linotype are available for purchase exclusively as individual weights in the Open Type format.
