What is Tunera Type Foundry?
Tunera Type Foundry is a typeface distribution platform created by Ariel Martín Pérez in January 2020 with the goal of exploring new typographic forms and concepts and universes that are often under-represented in the field of type design. To find out more, you can visit the About section.
What can I do with Tunera's open-source fonts?
- Use them, free of costs, in all of your personal and commercial projects. If you use them in a commercial project, you must credit the name of the typeface and its creator (see this information for each case). If you can’t include credits on your project (because you don’t have enough space), you must include them when presenting your project online (on your online portfolio, for instance).
- Distribute them, to your friends, for instance.
- Modify them, to create new typefaces (in the open-source world, we call these variations “forks”). In that case, you have to cite the original creator of the typeface (see this information for each case).
- Sell these typefaces.
- Distribute the typefaces by stripping the credit information of the font. The files presented with the font (readme.md, etc) must always be sent along with the font files.
- Create forks (modified versions) of these typefaces without crediting their original author (Ariel Martín Pérez).
- Use them in commercial projects without quoting the author and the name of the typeface anywhere, specially in high-grossing creative projects where the typeface is a prominent element. As said above, if you can’t include credits on the project itself, you must at least include them when you’ll present your project online.
I've designes a typeface and I would like to distribute it through your website. Do you accept contributions?
Yes, there’s the possibility to publish new open-source fonts if they correspond to the scope of the project.
Typefaces will be studied according to the following criteria:
- Originality: This is the main point, distributing typefaces with concepts and styles that are novel and that doesn’t feel over-used. It’s better if your typeface tells an interesting story.
- Technical qualities: typefaces should be properly spaced, kerned (the space between the A and V letters should be managed, for instance) and have a certain drawing quality (points at extrema, no excess points).
- Glyphset and language support: if your font is based on the latin alphabet, it should include at least some diacritic marks (to support different languages), preferably a lowercase set, and punctuation. Typefaces that cover non-latin languages (or, even better, multi-script typefaces) are also welcome.
