Newman™ is a grunge version of Disorder™. It was created to be used as an interesting face for headlines. "Newman" was named after the man who introduced the designer to the love of type, his first type instructor: Stan Newman. The dark triangular edges of Newman™ are reminiscent of Stan's long and pointed black beard.
USING THE CLEAN & ROUGH VERSIONS
Your choice of the clean or rough version of Newman™ depends largely on how you are going to use the fonts in your artwork, and on your personal taste. The clean version was composed after the rough version, so the rough version tends to have more detail, and some more interesting character shapes. The rough, however, does look a little gritty at larger point sizes and will take longer to print, as it has many more points.
For Mac users Newman™ Clean is set up to be the "regular" default version of the typeface, while Newman™ Rough has been linked as the bold. Using the automatic bold and italic functions in your word processing or page layout software, will therefore allow you to easily toggle between the versions.
For PC users, the two separate families Newman Clean™ and Newman Rough™ have been created.
When using this typeface at larger point sizes, you are likely to type words which use two or more of the same vowel characters. You might find that your design will look more dynamic if you use alternate versions of the duplicate letters. Because most of the accent characters in this family are slightly different from their unaccented root characters, you can use them whenever you require alternate vowels. After typing the accent character, in your page layout or illustration program, you can then draw a white box and place it on top of the unwanted accent.
