Siruca Stencil Wayfinding Flag at Milan Design Week
The flag you’ll find at via Ventura 12, Milan. The pictograms meaning is: draw using Siruca Stencil here

One of the most successful projects by Fabrizio Schiavi Design is certainly Siruca, the typographical system created in 2006 for the wayfinding of the complex Al Hamra in Kuwait City.

On the occasion of Milan Design Week 2018, a special stencil in plexiglass containing the essential letters of the Siruca alphabet will be exhibited in via Ventura 12.

A limited edition design object that could be sold-out very soon just like the previous edition in steel produced in 2009.

Overlapping of Siruca Stencils in Plexiglass

Every visitor can write using the stencil what he things in a 100 meter paper, buying a deck of Siruca Playing Cards or just take a free copy of a poster designed for this exhibition with all characters of Pragmata Pro in one of the sides.

See you at Milan Design Week!

PragmataPro Live perimetral view

PragmataPro Live is the exhibition of the first set of 9,000 glyphs of the Regular weight printed on a Forex panel of 21 meters folded into a big spiral.

My son presents PragmataPro Live installation to you in a unusual way: a roller coaster inside the hint created by the big spiral. He makes a great surprise to me with this video. ❤️

After many requests, I decided to change the font files structure of PragmataPro:

 

New font files structure since PragmataPro 0.826

The PragmataPro complete pack includes two folders: Fonts with ligatures and Fonts without ligatures
Both folders includes two kind of fonts grouped as Modularspaced and Monospaced.

The goal is to fit the need to have Modularspaced fonts without ligatures, Monospaced fonts with ligatures.
Two situations impossible to get before.

 


— New ligatures for R language and C#

Now the entire set of ligatures has reached 177 for every weight (Regular, Bold, Italic and Bold Italic)!

 

PragmataPro 0.826 new ligatures

 

 


 

— Harmonized APL symbols

Thanks to the help of abrudz now PragmataPro has more consistent APL symbols

 

PragmataPro 0.826 APL symbols

 


 

— Minor improvements:

— Regular and Italic: improved the TrueType hinting

— all weights: ligatures are now more compatible with IDEs like IntelliJ IDEA

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

FSD Emoji integrated in text

Do you think so?

If you think like me probably you can find interesting this page
or this dedicated blog

FSD Emoji on real life

 

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.

 

Milano Metro map text only

The entire map of the metro of Milan I redesigned using this exclusive box drawing method

Milano Metro map text only

Perfect also for text only diagramsdiagram using PragmataPro box drawing extra

 


 

— Added [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
