Fonts & scripts
Rosetta is a publisher and distributor of high-quality fonts for a growing number of the world’s writing systems. So far our library supports pan-European Latin, Arabic, Armenian, Greek, extended Cyrillic, Inuktitut, and Indic scripts like Gujarati and Devanagari.
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.
MyFonts interviewed Titus Nemeth, Vaibhav Singh, and David Březina and presented several of Rosetta’s typefaces in their Creative Characters issue #71
. Read about their studies, behind the scenes at Rosetta, development of several of our fonts, and more.
David Březina was invited to speak at the Smashing Conference
in Freiburg (Germany) in September. He will talk about the mechanics behind developing larger type families such as the ever-growing Skolar type system and discuss approaches to making type families functional, easy to use, and cross-platform… and how to stay sane while doing that. But furthermore he will unveil quite a bit from Rosetta behind-the-scenes and show how we are rethinking the way we present and license typefaces to its beloved users and our journey to finding a better way of dealing with (web)fonts.
Who else than Typecache, website which seems to notice and collect every release on the web, should do a best of list
. We are really proud that Arek was selected in the list for 2012 and it is in a great company too.
Neacademia is an extremely well-researched revival from Sergei Egorov.
