Since 1994 Tiro Typeworks has been crafting typefaces both for retail sale as well as for clients with specific requirements. Our first set of typefaces have effectively retired after some 10 years on the market. We have done this because we felt that these typefaces no longer accurately reflected either our tastes as designers nor our goals as manufacturers, which is to supply typographers and readers with robust, individual, and flexible type solutions.
Fonts } Syllabic
Euphemia & Uqammaq
Two Font Families for Inuktitut & Cree
Both typefaces have support for the Latin script as well
as Canadian Syllabics. Euphemia covers most languages which use the Canadian
Syllabic script including various Cree orthographies, Inuktitut and the historical
Carrier script. Both font families are available with free licenses to end

Retail Fonts } Restraint
Designed by Marian Bantjes & Ross Mills
Restraint is an ornament font which happens to contain letterforms. It is 100% fanciful all the time, and not for those timid of heart. It contains numerous squiggles and curly bits for creating blocks of exuberance, borders, frames, and graphic flights of fancy. Instructions for use included.

Maxwell is a text face designed for the typesetting of
mathematical and scientific texts and editorial use. A fresh interpretation
of the Modern series of typefaces developed in Victorian England and used
with great success for bookwork and especially for the setting of mathematics.
Maxwell looks to these models, while re-sculpturing them into elegant and
nuanced forms. Available for OEM, distribution and custom licenses.
