Museo Family – Museo, Museo Sans, Museo Slab, Museo Rounded

Museo

Museo by Jos Buivenga

MUSEO … it all started with Dutch designer Jos Buivenga’s love for U. One day this uppercase letter U just came to him as an image in a daydream. He saw the top of both stems bended into semi-slab serifs, and from that principle, he worked out the rest of the uppercase letters.

His first intention was to make it an all-caps display font but after a few months he changed his mind. He wanted it to be a bit more versatile and added lowercase, adjusted spacing and kerning to increase legibility. The end result is a contemporary semi-slab serif font family with five weights, designated as 100,300,500,700,900. After creating the original Museo, Jos Buivenga went on to create Museo Sans, Museo Slab and Museo Rounded.

The diversity of styles within the Museo family ensures that the typeface has a wide range of potential applications.

Neo Sans and Neo Tech Comparison

The English designer Sebastian Lester created the Neo® Sans and Neo Tech typeface families for Monotype Imaging in 2004. Later in 2005, Intel commissioned the creation of a custom Neo font, Neo Sans Intel, for its rebranding. The British Labour Party has also used the font in branding and advertising, as have Kia Motors, Virgin Trains and the UK ITV network. The sleek Neo design also appealed to the Valve Corp., which used the typeface for its 2010 Alien Swarm freeware game. In 2010, Neo Sans was selected as the official typeface for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics because of its timeless, modern quality.

Both the Neo Sans and the Neo Tech families are available in six weights, ranging from Light to Ultra. Each weight has a companion Italic, and Neo Tech offers a suite of alternate characters. Neo Sans is the more conventional design, whereas Neo Tech is intended to look futuristic. Lester describes as Neo Sans as “legible without being neutral, nuanced without being fussy, and expressive without being distracting.”

Chinese Fonts: Simplified and Traditional

Chinese is written in two different varieties of characters: Traditional and Simplified. The characters in Traditional Chinese are often more intricate composed of many strokes; while the characters in Simplified Chinese uses forms which have been reduced to fewer strokes. Beyond the graphical contrasts of the two characters, they are used in different areas and by different Chinese speakers. Simplified Chinese characters are officially used in Mainland China, Singapore and Malaysia, and used in some overseas Chinese communities. Traditional Chinese characters are officially used in Taiwan, HongKong and Macau, and used by many Overseas Chinese communities. Most common font styles are Song, Fang Song, Kai, Hei, Li and Wei.
