Whyte

The first version of Whyte was drawn years ago by Fabian after the find of a type sample from the early days of Grotesks. In the years that followed, Whyte made a few public appearances in small-scale cultural publications and aged so gracefully that we felt it was time to give the existing shapes another push.

Dinamo lead designer Erkin Karamemet – with Fabian and Johannes in minor, supporting or distracting roles – set out to refine and extend the initial version of Whyte and explore possibilities within its DNA. 14 months of focussed work and 27.040 characters later two related-yet-visually-different font families materialised: Whyte and Whyte Inktrap.

At one end of the spectrum we have smooth and sharp transitions – the other end features graphic Inktraps at its joints. While this distinction was necessary during the hot type era to improve printing quality, the resurrected Variable Font technology, inspired us to revive the idea and control of Inktraps. Both families consist of 10 weights with corresponding italics, amounting to 40 individually accessible font styles – each features a large set of international punctuation and currency signs.

The design process and decision making around Whyte was heavily influenced by the use of our own proofing tool, the Dinamo Font Gauntlet. This new “variable way of working” allows us to see old shapes with new eyes, and is an approach which we’re trying to refine and develop through our projects. The Variable Font version of Whyte, once released, will merge both sister-families into a flexible tool and allows you to seamlessly slide from one extreme to the other.

Select Typefaces

Select Licenses

Print

The price of the Print License is based on the TOTAL SIZE of the company who is licensing the typeface (and not on the amount of computers on which the font files are installed on). It allows you to install the font files on a Desktop Computer, in order to design images and documents for print and screen.

Web

It allows for embedding the font files into a website. The license is priced per domain title and traffic (views per month), and has to be upgraded once traffic increases.

Social Media License

Add-on to the Print License. It covers the use on channels like Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and Youtube. It is a one time fee and based on the total amount of followers across ALL your channels combined. The first 100.000 followers are for free.

It allows for embedding the font files into a Mobile App. The license is priced per app, traffic, and platform (Android or iOS) and has to be upgraded once traffic increases

Broadcasting

It allows for any kind of broadcasting bigger than Social Media, such as Streaming (Netflix, Amazon, HBO, SKY), TV, Cinema, Video Advertising, Video Billboards or Video Clips longer than 1 minute. It is a one time fee. The price depends on region (Europe, USA, Other) and time.

It allows for embedding the font files into an eBook or PDFs or other documents which you share with your customers or collaborators. The license is priced per amount of titles.

Corporate

A one-time fee which grants you globally unlimited Print, Web and App use. Continuously having to monitor and re-evaluate traffic or upgrade licenses (if a company grows or more websites are being added) is a process bigger companies usually like to avoid. Therefore some of them choose to go with the Corporate License.

Subcontractor

Owners of the Corporate License usually combine it with a Subcontractor License – it allows them to share the typeface with any of their subcontractors during their working relationship.
