För god form, typografi, grafiska produkter och tjänster
Stockholms Typografiska Gille vill höja kvaliteten på svenska grafiska produkter. Vi debatterar och engagerar oss i utvecklingen inom vårt yrkesområde, studerar och samtalar om konsekvenserna av ny teknik. Vi kritiserar dålig grafisk kvalitet. Genom dessa aktiviteter hoppas vi kunna skapa en större medvetenhet hos såväl producenter av svenska grafiska produkter, beställare av grafisk form och typografi som hos den läsande konsumenten.
Ett projekt i vardande. Intressant projekt som låter dig hålla i en typsnitts-server för att distribuera typsnitt till prenumeranter.
Mjukvaran är gratis.
Skaparen själv tar upp några fall:
”A font publisher who operates their own online shop (could be a self-publishing foundry or a reseller of several foundries) wants to make all of their end user’s purchases available for the end users to easily download and install.”
”Type shops that engage in corporate branding exercises often find themselves in the situation that they have to send out regular updates of their fonts to work groups within their client’s branding companies, whose designers are already working on designs with fonts that are still being developed.”
”A scenario for a free font website would be to offer one subscription for each typeface that they are offering.”
In close collaboration with Nippon Design Center of Japan, we designed a sound sensitive typeface for Chinese audio tech company Goertek. Based on surrounding sounds, it changes appearance by vibrating in different frequencies and wave types.
The dynamic typeface is created for use on digital signage and wayfinding throughout Goertek’s groundbreaking R&D hub in Qingdao, China.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a pre-animated A-Z SVG alphabet in a nice font like Roboto? Of course. Free? Yes!
All characters come as separately animated .svgs so you can build your own sentences. Also included is each characters .keyshape file and the .sketch file for even further customization, like changing the timing of the animation or setting up your very own font. Awesome!
A 19th-century portfolio of fantastical lettering styles continues to fascinate designers, and is one of the most popular objects in our collection. Guest author Dan Reynolds highlights a few favorite plates.
This collection aims at giving visibility to libre fonts drawn by womxn designers, who are often underrepresented in the traditionally conservative field of typography.
These fonts are shared under Free, Libre and Open Source licenses, which allow anyone to use them, modify their design, contribute more glyphs or styles to their non-nuclear families, build upon them and redistribute them further.
They are generously given for free, feeding an ecosystem of sharing and collaborations.
To support the designers, you can plan in the design budget of your project some money to donate to the designer directly, commission them with custom font designs, invite them to give a lecture and spread the word about their great designs!
