With his typeface Huronia
Ross Mills takes up the challenge of supporting all the native languages of the Americas, with the hope to help with the preservation of the endangered ones. In order to promote the typeface and its good cause, we decided to design a set of three posters which present native American stories in Cherokee, Nuuchahnulth, and Inuktitut, as well as in English. Anna Giedryś – the designer of these posters – created beautiful illustrations to accompany each of these stories. Get the posters in our merchandise section

is one of the most prestigious international competitions for type design, focussing on non-Latin scripts. We were proud to find that this year Eskorte Arabic
by Elena Schneider has won the first prize in the category of Arabic text typefaces, Skolar Gujarati
by David Březina has won the second prize in the Indic text typefaces category, and best of all, Serendip Sinhala
by Rafael Saraiva, which is scheduled for a Rosetta release (it includes a brilliant Latin component btw), has won the first prize in the Indic category and also received the grand prize from Granshan! We are deeply honoured and humbled with this appreciation of our work.
David Březina will be presenting at the ATypI conference in Amsterdam
this year to discuss the challenges on the crossroads of linguistics, typography, and computer science. The thesis is that multilingual type design is not only the drawing of nice lettershapes, it also deals with their optimization for output, that is, with typographic layout, and the demands of target media. Some of the challenges lie in extending the typographic repertoire of one script (i.e. writing system) with tools similar to those of another. Other challenges lie in adapting the scripts to a typographic system or to the limitations of certain kinds of media be it laser printing or rasterized screens.
