A link to an article about the Colvert typeface

Postby William » Thu Mar 21, 2013 11:57 am

I have been reading an article about how the Colvert typeface was designed by four designers, one designer for each of the Latin, Cyrillic, Arabic and Greek scripts. I find it fascinating and thought that I would post a link to the article in this forum.

Here is the link.

I couldn't get the link to work correctly. First I got a msg saying I had been selected for an Iphone or Ipad and when I didn't get one, I got a generic home page with no obvious link.

William, could you see where my Ipad is, please.

Hi Dick

Thank you for posting.

I tested the link from the post at the time and again just now and they work for me. I am using Firefox on a PC running windows xp.

For you and for anyone else for whom the link does not work, here is the address set out as text.

http colon stroke stroke
fontfeed dot com stroke
archives stroke
colvert-harmony-through-diversity stroke

This should act as a guide so as to be able to key the address into a browser.

Simply omit the spaces and new lines and substitute as follows.

: for colon
/ for stroke
. for dot

I hope that that helps you and anyone else for whom the link does not work to be able to read the article.

No, but I can offer you a link to an interesting post related to an iphone.

The post is about a video intended as humour, but I thought about it and thought that such a device could have real benefits, so I posted my comments, which now are available in the comments section of the original post.

Just in case that link does not work either.
