With the Hiii Typography Merit Award, our Widiba institutional typeface won the third award!!!
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?
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.
The entire map of the metro of Milan I redesigned using this exclusive box drawing method
Perfect also for text only diagrams
[FIXME] [TODO] [BUG] [NOTE] [HACK] [MARK] ligatures to emphasize important messages in command line
After all these notifications I suppose now has all the command line messages emphasized
— Added all the icons of Nerd font
Nerd font contents a lot icons useful to Vim users. More info: http://nerdfonts.com/
— Regular: improved the design of the entire Fullwidth and Halfwidth letters
PragmataPro can interact more better with other CJK fonts.
— Minors improvements:
— Regular: added power symbols to Miscellaneous Technical set
— all weights: improved the TrueType hinting above all for Microsoft Windows
— all weights: added
:<: :>: ligatures for Scala
— all weights: added
:) :-) :( :-( :D :P :3 ligatures for text chatting

/universal now has an alternative version available using OpenType ss12 feature
/emptyset now has an alternative version available using OpenType ss13 feature
* all weights: now PragmataPro is completely compatible with IntelliJ IDEA software
* all weights: removed U+3000-303F CJK Symbols and Punctuation set

There are a lot of changes in the version 0.822 of PragmataPro:
➊ Perfect integration with CJK fonts and Emoji
All the glyphs are been scaled to exactly 0.5 em² wide (= 1024-unit em) so they are compatible with CJK (Chinese/Japanese/Korean) characters, where every character are exactly 1 em² wide (= 2048 unit)
➋ All the arrows, planned by Unicode until now, are been designed
➌ Towards completion of Math support
It’s been improved the design of U+2200 – U+22FF Mathematical Operators set
added the U+2980 – U+29FF Misc. Mathematical Symbols-B set
added the U+2A00 – U+2AFF Supplemental Math Operators set
under the precious supervision of Pierre Le Marre
➍ New ligatures for functional programming languages
The design of ligatures that includes < and > is changed
Added a lot of new ligatures to improve the programming in Haskell, Scala, Swift … in all the weights available
This is my new playground.
I like to do these pictures, a lot
The picture above is the release of today about #HeritageDay inspired by this tweet
