  • The Dyna-Fonts
    Two Fonts for Yesterday's Tomorrows
  • Introducing two completely new, never-before-seen display fonts. Even though the Dyna-Fonts were just released this year, they have both already won acclaim in the Applied Arts Design Competition—in their first ever Typeface Design category.
  • I’m very proud of these fonts, and am pleased that they’ve begun to get the recognition I think they deserve. They work extremely well both together and separately, and in both display and in smaller settings, as you'll see from the various examples below. First let's look at Dynascript:
     
  • Dynascript font / $60.00
  • Dynascript brings the ease of “Pushbutton Automatic” to your typesetting experience. Dynascript is actually 2-Fonts-In-1: without switching fonts you can instantly change from Dynascript’s connecting font to the non-connecting italic with the simple push of a button. (Just press the “Stylistic Alternates” button in the OpenType palette.)
  • Typesetters across the planet will also be able to set copy in their language of choice.
  • Dynascript’s 694 glyphs can be used to set copy in: Albanian, Basque, Catalan, Cornish, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Esperanto, Estonian, Faroese, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Kalaallisut, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Maltese, Manx, Norwegian Bokmål, Norwegian Nynorsk, Oromo, Polish, Portuguese, Slovak, Slovenian, Somali, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Turkish, and Welsh—and of course English. Sorry! Off-world languages not yet supported.
  • What is Dynascript? It’s is a completely original, never before seen, bold script font—but to some it may be reminiscent of various mid-century neon signage, and of sign writing, Speedball alphabets and even baseball scripts. The design of Dynascript also takes some cues from a historical typographic curiosity that began in Germany in the ‘20s and which lasted into the ‘60s—when Photo-Lettering gave it the name “Zip-Top”. Basically it was believed to be the wave of the future—that by weighting an alphabet heavier in its top half, one could increase legibility and reading speed. The jury’s still out on whether or not there’s any validity to this claim—but you can decide for yourself!
  • Dynatype font / $60.00
  • Dynatype is the second component of “Dyna-Fonts”. Whereas Dynascript was primarily a connecting script font with a non-connecting italic alternate style, Dynatype is first and foremost an upright, non-connecting font with an upright, connecting alternate component.
  • “Suddenly…it’s the World of Tomorrow!” With the push of a button Dynatype will automate your typesetting experience. Dynatype is actually 2-Fonts-In-1: without switching fonts you will be able to instantly change from Dynatype’s “regular” default style to its alternate connecting version with the simple push of a button.

The jury’s still out on whether or not there’s any validity to this notion, but hopefully you’ll agree that in the context of this design, the heavier weighting at the top of the letters helps to create some uniquely pleasing forms, and two unusual fonts.
