#fatypeflux, UCity & Baton Turbo Cyrillic

#fatypeflux

We are excited to announce our new type developement approach. Up until now, we have released our fonts after years of behind-the-scenes work. With #fatypeflux, we are changing things up for a more fluid and direct way. We will release single styles and smaller families more often while involving designers in the process. This will allow us to be more playful. We plan on releasing updated and modified version of these typefaces, based on feedback from you. We really believe the best way to create new fonts is to do it with you.
Therefore, we would love to hear your opinions. We have set up an email address especially for you to send feedback, don’t hesitate to use it: [email protected]

We will offer discounts on future releases to designers who have worked with fatypeflux fonts and send us feedback and images of the work they’ve done with them.
Additionally, if you are working on a project and are interested to adapt our typefaces for your work, let us know, we would love to collaborate more with designers in the coming years.

UCity

Our first #fatypeflux release takes the shape of a new take at a typeface from our library.
When he arrived in Berlin, Anton Koovit was fascinated by the signs of the U8 underground line. Geometric designs with charming qualities found in early modernism. Each sign in the different stations offered a different look at a geometric design with the charming qualities of early modernism. The shapes were various and inconsistent, depending on the station, the material it was applied on, and the different craftsmen who had done the work over the years. Through an intense research and design process, drawing definitive outlines, imagining glyphs and weights that didn’t exist, he produced our typeface U8. 10 years later, Anton revisits U8 and imagines a typeface for the city of today. In UCity, geometry is still the underlying framework, but it applies very differently, in a design that feels colder and more graphic, with modern proportions and closed counter shapes. Sharp angles and breaks in curves, as well as modular-looking elements give UCity a look that seems fitting for our times.

Baton Turbo Cyrillic

Finally, we are also happy to announce that Baton Turbo now supports cyrillic. All 10 styles (roman and italic) have been upgraded. The cyrillics are not separate, but included in the normal version for the same price. If you have purchased Baton Turbo recently, Cyrillic was already included. If your version doesn’t have Cyrillic and you wish to receive the newest one, send us an email with your license, and we’ll send it for free.

Some of our other typefaces also have Cyrillic available upon request. Let us know if you are interested. We are planning to add Cyrillic support to other typefaces in our library in the near future.
