Armature Neue Sans is on Sale with a 50% Off Discount

PSYOPS Armature Neue Sans Sale, 50% Discount

Armature Neue Sans is currently on sale with a 50% off discount.

“Armature Neue Sans is an extension of the original Armature Neue family released in 2010. Like Armature Neue, Armature Neue Sans consists of six weights with accompanying italics. Armature is one result of my interest in typefaces that are constructed, rather than drawn. Although it is basically a monoline design, there are subtle details throughout that compensate for a monoline’s evenness.

As with all fontBoy fonts, there are dingbats hidden away in the dark recesses of the keyboard. When I first started designing this face in 1992, I called it Dino – I thought I would name all my fonts after famous pets, so the dingbats for Armature are dinosaurs. To access the alternate characters (closed counter B and R, and others) use Stylistic Set 1 or the glyphs palette in your OpenType-enabled application.

Designed by Bob Aufuldish with editing and production by PSY/OPS.”

This Armature Neue Sans discount will be extinct in 30 days (May 12th).

TXT101, Carolina De Bartolo at 79NM

TXT101 designer Carolina de Bartolo has been featured over on 79NM. Where the origins of TXT101 are revealed: “First conceived as an interactive component to her excellent typesetting textbook Explorations in Typography, TXT101 was intended to give readers flexible interaction with various examples of layouts. Although she eventually scrapped the idea from the app version of her book, the designs stuck with her.”

TXT101 Review at Typographica

TXT101 Review at Typographica

“TXT101 is lorem ipsum for lorem ipsum. A winking, 52-style family in four weights, TXT101 provides a visual alternative to placeholder text. It’s a mock font that mocks not.”

A great TXT101 review has been spotted over at Typographica, written by André Mora.

“Once you get the hang of it, you can combine styles and create unique rules and borders. Mix up the weights, and you’ll find that TXT101 doesn’t just set text in the abstract, it can finish off a real page with a fully realized frame. Now, what’s Latin for: ‘Fake it ’til you make it’?”

Type Release: Armature Neue Sans By Bob Aufuldish

Armature Neue Sans

New typeface from designer Bob Aufuldish.

Armature Neue Sans is the clean and quirky sanserif counterpart to Armature Neue. Armature Neue is itself a redesign and expansion of the four-font Armature family original released in 1997. The updated Neue families each consist of twelve weights, including eight new cuts: Extra Light, Light, Extra Bold, Black each with matching italics. Although intended as a display face, a number of OpenType alternates are included that help regularize the type for text settings.
