Linotype

Typo­graphic con­sul­tant (since 2002).

Open­Type font devel­op­ment, lan­guage research and mul­ti­lin­gual consulting.

Lino­type GmbH is one of world’s most promi­nent font man­u­fac­tur­ers and dis­trib­u­tors. It is a sub­sidiary of Mono­type Imag­ing and is located in Bad Hom­burg, near Frank­furt (Main), Ger­many. It oper­ates world­wide and offers an exten­sive library of more 3,000 com­puter fonts, includ­ing all-time favourites such as Hel­vetica, Optima, Palatino, Frutiger or Univers.

I had worked with Lino­type on sev­eral projects that included Open­Type font devel­op­ment, con­sult­ing in mul­ti­lin­gual typog­ra­phy, devel­op­ment of cus­tom Font­Lab script­ing solu­tions, project man­age­ment. In Novem­ber 2003, I cre­ated the Open­Type ver­sions of Zapfino Extra LT Pro, a re-designed ver­sion of Her­mann Zapf’s type­face Zapfino. I also con­sulted on the design of dia­critic char­ac­ters for Zapfino Extra LT Pro, Hel­vetica Lino­type, and some other Lino­type fonts.
