2007 FontShop Calendar: Feb-June

June Featuring Armchair Modern

With curves inspired by both Scandinavian furniture design and old-school cathode ray tube displays, Armchair Modern shows off its paces in a cool, summery June calendar.

May Featuring Anisette

Dyana Weissman of the Font Bureau used their Anisette typeface to bring us an unabashedly flowery May. Jean-François Porchez’s font draws from the Art Deco lettering of French poster artist A. M. Cassandre.

April 2007 Calendar

April Featuring Freight

Joshua Darden crafted this ambitious release for GarageFonts in 2005. Freight Serif and Sans are reliable text faces, and the inventive Micro is tuned for tiny print, but every font in the package has headline potential. It’s one of the most refreshing and useful families of the last few years.

March 2007 Calendar

March Featuring Mustardo™ and Ketchupa

Swedish designer Peter Bruhn tells the story of his typefaces featured in this month’s newsletter: “One day at lunch, having a hamburger, I looked at the ketchup package and noticed how the ink in the print had spread and made the small size lettering look very round. Using Corpus Gothic as a template, I’ve tried to imitate this in Ketchupa and Mustardo.”

FontShop February 2007 Calendar

February Featuring MVB Sirenne

This month’s desktop wallpaper is from designer Alan Greene, using MVB Sirenne, a typeface he designed with Mark van Bronkhorst. The elegant serif family, inspired by a rare, 18th-century book, brings antique hand lettering to the digital world with a full set of weights, small caps, and swash italics, with separate cuts for large and small settings.

  3. Timothy – We hadn’t planned a 2007 calendar, but got so many requests at the beginning of the year that we finally caved in time for a Feburary. So no January 07 was ever produced. But we’ll make it up to you. Each new month will be so wonderful you’ll forget January even existed.
