“Fonts by Inspiration” Series: Multiline Fonts

In the “Fonts by Inspiration” series, experts from the Linotype team present one new font genre each month. Multiline fonts were the focus in May. These fonts consist of multiple, parallel lines. They are reminiscent of neon signs from the 1970s or pop and disco fonts, and they are particularly useful as headline fonts in the larger font sizes, which highlight their details.

Take a look at our large selection of multiline fonts here.

New: the dynamic, informal Louisville Script

The new Louisville Script on Linotype.com is a dynamic and informal font from Steve Matteson. The designer’s handwriting formed the basis of the handwritten block letters. The font’s appearance has an informal and unobtrusive character that is somewhat hurried, but always legible. The font leans away from the direction of the writing, which is unusual and exciting. The italic styles stand upright and have a light contrast in the stroke.

Louisville Script is available in two widths, each with a matching italic. The font is ideal for informal greeting and invitation cards as well as for international education, whether for teaching materials or school and year books.

Bradley Texting with new italic styles

With Bradley Texting, Richard Bradley brought a friendly, clear and legible handwriting to the market in 2014. Apart from the use in print, the font is particularly well suited to electronic devices like mobile phones, eBook readers or tablets – as well as a text and headline font.
Now you can find the matching italic styles for the previous Regular, Semibold and Bold styles on Linotype.com. The italic versions have a significant incline, which creates a more dynamic appearance for Bradley Texting. This expands its potential for use even further.

Find out more about the lively and friendly Bradley Texting, which now offers more design potential thanks to the new italic styles, here.

The well-developed and award-winning super family FF Milo

At first the only member of Mike Abbink’s FF Milo super family was the humanist sans FF Milo®. In the following years, the font designer added FF Milo® Serif and FF Milo® Slab.

These three fonts are versatile all-rounders, thanks to their generous options: various numeral sets, small caps, ligatures and alternative letterforms. You can use the families for body text, headlines, logos and signalization systems. On their own, they appear strong and unique. They can also combine perfectly, however.

FF Milo and FF Milo Slab are available in nine weights, from Thin to Black, each with matching italics. FF Milo Serif is available in six weights, from Regular to Black, also with matching italics. By the way, FF Milo Serif won the ISTD International Typographic Award in 2001 and was selected along with the sans FF Milo as one of the best fonts of the first decade of the twenty-first century in the Letter.2 competition by ATypI.

Video tip: “Edward Johnston – Calligraphy & Type Design with Ewan Clayton”

UK-based calligrapher and lecturer Ewan Clayton presents a portrait of the font designer Edward Johnston in a nearly one-hour talk. The result is an interesting and inspiring picture of Johnston’s life and work.

Johnston designed Johnston Sans for the London underground some 100 years ago. And as Clayton himself notes, the font could be described as “the face of London”. One reason of many why you should look at the exciting video.

New at Linotype.com: the lively script font Romany

Thanks to its many curves and loops, the new script font Romany appears particularly lively, ornamental and somewhat playful. The font from Terrance Weinzierl makes a friendly impression. It has its origins in the historical font from Alfred R. Bosco from the 1930s.

The earlier font version, however, fell into obscurity. Thanks to Weinzierl, the font lives again in a modern, small family with four styles, Regular and Bold with matching and significantly inclined italics. Great potential areas of application include greeting and invitation cards, product packaging and international posters.
