San Deigo based Software developer by day,
typographer founder of fontsite.com and
contributor to iDn Magazine by night; Sean
Cavanaugh is certainly a multi-talented guy.
“My love of type comes from a love for
words,” he says. “I find it impossible to
separate the two.”
Bergamo is a lovely and exceedingly elegant
typeface. We detect inspiration from the
famous Bembo, combine this with Cavanughs
artistic little flourishes here and there and
you’ve got a pretty damn lovely typeface!
Henning Skibbe is a talented typographer and
corporate designer located in Hamburg.
He is currently working for the famous Factor
Design in the centre of Hamburg’s lively
Schanzenviertel district. Not only is Skibbe
a very talented typeface designer he is also
very skilled in editorial and type placement
work. It is fair to say, Skibbe has a very
sharp eye for text.
“Nautik is a headline family in five weights;
extralight, light, regular, bold and black.

of nautical vehicles such as boats & ships.”
LATIN MODERN ROMAN
Gust E-Foundry is a Poland based online type
foundry run by Boguslaw Jackowski, Janusz M.
Nowack, Marcin Woliński and Piotr Strzelczyk.
“The Latin Modern fonts are derived from the
famous Computer Modern fonts designed by
Donald E. Knuth and first published by the
American Matematical Society (AMS) in 1997.
One of the main extensions is the addition of
an extensive set of diacritical characters,
covering many scripts based on the Latin
character set, mainly european, but not only,
most notably Vietnamese. The project is
authored by Bogusław “Jacko” Jackowski and
Janusz M. Nowacki aka “Ulan”, supported in
LaTeX matters by Marcin Woliński.”
