UK Parliament

19 March 2018

UK Parliament
The visual identity of the UK Parliament has been reviewed and updated

The visual identity of the UK Parliament has been reviewed and updated because the current version was designed for printed material and does not work successfully on digital channels.
The new visual identity can already be seen on the UK Parliament’s beta website and social media channels.
Unlike its predecessor, the new version works on responsively designed digital channels, i.e. where the design has to change size depending on whether it is being viewed on a computer, tablet or mobile phone. The new visual identity is also more accessible and readable than its predecessor.
The new visual identity uses ‘UK Parliament’ rather than ‘Houses of Parliament’ to highlight the role of the institution in the UK’s constitution, and to distinguish it from the building it occupies.
The two Houses share a large number of public-facing services which require a consistent parliamentary identity. The new visual identity will be implemented across these services in a phased approach, to ensure that the public can easily identify the services provided by the UK Parliament.
Design studio SomeOne explored a number of options for typefaces. It was important that the chosen typeface could portray Parliament’s vast heritage as well help to reflect it being an inclusive and modern organisation. Two typefaces were choosen: Register (A2 Type Foundry) and National (Klim Type Foundry), which work well as a combination or individually.
The House of Commons and House of Lords will continue to use their own, existing visual identities.

Robert Slimbach: Introducing Ten Oldstyle

Adobe Typekit Blog

27 November 2017

Ten Oldstyle

Robert Slimbach: “As type usage becomes increasingly globalized, type designers are increasingly called upon to extend the language coverage of their typefaces.
As a Western type designer, I’m often challenged to design non-Latin extensions for both new and existing designs. Because Latin has always been my initial focus, I’m used to adapting non-Latin scripts to work within Western typographic standards. In doing so, I seek to balance script compatibility with script authenticity. With the Ten Oldstyle project, the tables had turned, and I was now being called upon to develop a Latin roman design to accompany the new Ten Mincho font that was being developed by Adobe …”

Welcome IBM Plex, Farewell Helvetica

Local Fonts News

24 November 2017

IBM launched in beta its new bespoke typeface IBM Plex and thus said farewell to Helvetic.
“When I came to IBM, explains Mike Abbink (the typeface’s designer and IBM’s executive creative director of brand experience and design), it was a big discussion: Why does IBM not have a bespoke typeface? Why are we still clinging on to Helvetica? The way we speak to people and the conversations we need to have and we’d like to have, is that still the right way to express ourselves? We should really design a typeface that really reflects our belief system and make it relevant to people now. Helvetica is a child of a particular sect of modernist thinking that’s gone today.”
So, Mike Abbink and his team made it. The new IBM bespoke font family is IBM Plex. And it is free. Really! Free to download, free to use. Free under SIL Open Font License. Go to Github and you will realize that this is true.
The new visual history of IBM that starts with IBM Plex is open minded to people.
“If shoe stores or coffee shops or small businesses are using it for their identity, awesome,” Abbink says in the video. “They’re agreeing they want to be part of a discussion around machines and how they’re going to evolve and progress our world.”

Bw Modelica

Please welcome the upgraded Bw Modelica LGC, which stands for Latin, Greek and Cyrillic. Initially released supporting all Latin European languages, we just expanded the character set to cover Greek and Cyrillic scripts (including Bulgarian, Serbian, Macedonian letterform model). The Bw Modelica font family is available in different subsets so you don’t have to license for characters you are never going to use. It also has a dedicated microsite where you can test all the different character sets available in one place. Designed by Alberto Romanos, Bw Modelica is a minimal, robust, reliable & pragmatic geometric sans. Its clean shapes and generous x-height makes it a very competent typeface for both, display and body copy purposes.

Font-family names in IE 6-8

Adobe Typekit Blog

27 June 2017

Sean McBridge announced on Adobe Typekit Blog an improvement in support for older versions of Internet Explorer. The new published kits now serves additional variation-specific font-family names to IE 6-8. This makes it possible to work around bugs in these browsers that are triggered when multiple weights and styles of a single font family are used in the same kit, explain Sean McBridge. Most importantly, these additional font-family names make it possible to use more than four weights and styles of a single font family in IE 6-8.

GlyphMorf

Thom Janssen introduced on Github the GlyphMorf. GlyphMorf is an experimental way for making parametric adjustments for a font, in RoboFont. Downloading GlyphMorf Extension is free. Using GlyphMorf in a professional environment is not.
GlyphMorf analyses the glyph drawing and extract parameters out of it. By redrawing the glyph with different parameters you get different new glyphs / fonts. The drawing should be so that every point on the contour can be paired with an other point in the same contour on the other side of the stem/stroke. This means that all contours must have an even number of points. The starting point marks the beginning of the inner or outer part of the contour, depends a bit on the design. See image, the selected (orange) segments show the first half of the contours.

OpenType Design Variation Axis Tags

Microsoft, Github

22 November 2017

This GitHub repository is used for discussion and review of proposals for registration of OpenType design-variation axis tags.

Why register a design-variation axis?

OpenType supports custom or “foundry-defined” axes, allowing any font developer to create a font with whatever axes they wish (provided the syntactic requirements for a custom tag are met). So, why bother going through the process to register an axis? The short answer is that it can provide better experiences for end users and create opportunities for font and application developers.

While a font family design can be varied in any number of arbitrary ways, there are some kinds of variation that can seem useful and interesting to many different foundries. With custom axes, different foundries could create families with the same kinds of design variants, but because they have each identified the same variants in different ways, applications have no way to interact with particular variants, and users have inconsistent experiences.

A registered axis provides two key benefits over custom axes:

  • It fosters conventionality and familiarity.
  • It facilitates interoperability.
