Abitare Sans 1.06 out now!

After the successful selling of Abitare Sans I decided to add and improve some glyphs


➊ Improvements

Almost all the design of the main Latin letters was changed to
improve text readability. All is more proportional and harmonious now.

The design of the curly quotes are changed to be more recognizable in texts.

Question mark, and its derived glyphs, are now more condensed and inspired to the design of the traditional serif typefaces.
Abitare Sans now has a more sharp geometric outline.

➋ Cyrillic set

Since v_1.06 Abitare Sans includes Cyrillic alphabet in all the 30 weights, both in Roman and Italic version.


PragmataPro 0.824

PragmataPro 0.824 more ligatures and compatibility

More ligatures and compatibility!

  • all weights: Ligatures are now Contextual Alternates OpenType features to obtain more compatibility with the most part of Text Editors

  • all weights: added these important ligatures for Scala programming:
    ++= -+- -\/ \/- <~< <==> =/= ??? |-> |–> |=> |==> ##

  • all weights: improved the design of these ligatures:

  • all weights: added ligatures to emphasize important message in command line
    (thanks to Kim Silkebækken for this cool idea!)

  • Regular: improved the hinting of numerous glyphs like x, s, twosuperior, threesuperior, questiondown

  • Regular: improved the design of some math operators
    emptyset, intersection, union, multiset, multisetmultiplication, multisetunion, plus.circled, minus.circled, multiply.circled, fraction.circled, operator.circled, ringoperator.circled, asteriskoperator.circled, equals.circled, dash.circled, squaredplus, squaredminus, squaredtimes, squareddotoperator, logicalnotReversed, turnedNotSign, blackDiamond, whiteDiamond, blackDiamond, whiteDiamond, supersetBesideSubset, supersetBesideAndJoinedByDashWithSubset, doubleStrokeNotSign, reversedDoubleStrokeNotSign, logicalnot
    (thanks to Miëtek Bak for the important support!)

PragmataPro 0.822 – the silent revolution


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

PragmataPro is now the first modular/monospaced font of the history that includes all these arrows.
You can see all from my Github repository named ‘Arrow Finder



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


Feel free to contact me directly or notify an issue via Github to improve PragmataPro again and again.
Thank you!

New release: custom fonts for Widiba

Designed for Widiba, a new bank of Gruppo Monte dei Paschi di Siena.
The fonts (four sans and one serif) are part of the branding corporate done by jekyll & hyde. Widiba’s fonts are optimized to be readable in every device thanks to an accurated TrueType hand hinting.
