Characters Font Foundry : Major update Accelerator coming up van Characters Font Foundry

HOT NEWS - Finally, in a few days a major update for Accelerator will be released.
Since day one Accelerator is my most sold font. Due to it’s enormous success, many users asked me to do a workover and offer more value for their money.

Here is a list of the featured updates:
• Added a full characterset (no math signs though)
• Overall spacing, hinting and kerning improvements
• Glyph improvements (most important: B, D, M, N, Z, 0)
• Optical improvements
• 4 Bonus ligatures (complete set available in Accelerator DriverGear)

Font formats
The font will be available in 4 formats: Open Type Flavoured (OTF), Macintosh PS1 (Suitcase), Windows PS (PFB), Windows True Type (TTF).
The OTF will be a cross platform font that features many (bonus) ligatures and typographical extra’s that fire up Accelerator.

Accelerator DriverGear
Also available will be a version called Accelerator DriverGear. This font will contain very cool ligatures for fast cars, like GTi, GTX, XTi, TDi, and much more.

Extra versions
Last but not least, some extra versions of the font will be available, like a Swash, Alt and Warp. More about that later on.

Due to the fact that it’s such a major workover, the update will not be free for registered buyers. Sorry about that. I will look for a pretty good discount offer though.

BUY - Accelerator will be available at MyFonts, Veer and T26.

Characters Font Foundry : Nantua - Russian style font

NEWS - Nantua is a geometric display font with hard edges, inspired by the Russian Constructivism from the early 20’s. Great artists like Aleksandr Rodchenko used typography as form. Nantua can be used with that very same principal. Used in larger sizes it’s very ‘in your face’. Used in small sizes it tends to work like a compact background pattern.
