New release: FSD Emoji

I like emoji.

I think them can help to communicate
—  quickly and
— without barriers of languages.

Probably I become old too soon but I don’t understand why emoji must be colorful and fill of small details above all when will be used at 9–14 pt size in every device.

For me emoji must be black and white and
designed to be used at very low sizes

Do you think so?

If you think like me probably you can find interesting this page
or this dedicated blog

PragmataPro 0.825 – more pros!

Thanks to the numerous suggestions arrived, PragmataPro now is even a more complete professional typeface:

— Added Extra Bow Drawing symbols suggested by Dmtri Nesteruk

Some month ago Dmtri Nesteruk wrote me an email with a sketched good idea: to add a bullet to some used box drawing glyphs. The result is very interesting! By now  also a lot of graphic designers can be rethink the use of box drawing.

There are a lot of changes in the version 0.822 of PragmataPro:

 

➊ Perfect integration with CJK fonts and Emoji
