Futura has been refreshed for the digital era with the launch of Futura Now – deemed as the definitive version of this iconic family, expanded by Monotype to “meet the demands of ‘digital-first’ campaigns, made for forward-thinking brands and publishers”.
Monotype’s Ambiguity typeface, designed by Monotype Studio’s Charles Nix, has been recognized by Fast Company’s 2020 Innovation by Design Awards in the graphic design category.
Remember back when ‘The Future’ was a comfortable place that belonged to dense analyst reports, dramatically-lit conference stages, and glossy strategy decks? That future is, suddenly – and across pretty much every market vertical -happening right here, right now.
Monotype provides an efficient and high-quality font rendering engine for embedded devices, Monotype Spark. It is integrated into Qt Quick Ultralite as a backend to the QML Text API and comes as an additional option to our pre-existing so-called “Static” font engine. If you already have a working Qt for MCUs application, no extra code is required to switch to the new engine. You only need to configure your project to use Spark and if you use multiple fonts, bundle them into a single fontmap file.
With less than one hundred days until U.S. elections, local and national candidates across the country are vying for votes with bold ideas and eye-catching designs. In an election year where a pandemic has curtailed photo ops and cancelled meet-and-greets and rallies, a campaign’s digital presence is the only way to safely connect with voters. As more Americans engage with candidates online, political hopefuls are realizing what design enthusiasts have long understood: a cohesive and impactful visual identity is critical to a successful campaign.
