Type Love: Glenlake by Filmotype

Glenlake, originally designed by Filmotype & released in 1955, has been beautifully remastered & expanded by Font Diner.  This gothic sans serif typeface has all the added functionality of a modern digital typeface, a full compliment of international characters, auto fractionals, ordinals, & alternates.

Filmotype was a company led by Allan & Beatrice Friedman that built and sold manually operated photo typesetting machines and over 500 specifically designed typefaces for the machine.  Filmotype eventually became Alphatype and continued selling and manufacturing the machines until 1984, when the MAC was first released. The company couldn’t compete against the coming digital type age. in 2006, Font Diner acquired the collection of type and has been digitizing it ever since.

The typeface can be purchased through either MyFonts or You Work for Them for the low price of $29.00.

Type Love: Neo Orient by Uğur İslim

I really love the personality of the Neo Orient typeface by Istanbul, Turkey based designer and typographer Uğur İslim. The typeface includes both a standard set and an initials set that are equally beautiful. Unfortunately I can’t find any more information on the typeface or whether it’s available for purchase.
