Prisma

A beam of light flashes up. It strikes the prism, is refracted and fans out. What emerges is something new: Light in all its facets.

They too began their studies as blank sheets of paper, as pure white light, and finally came out as versatile designers in a wide variety of disciplines. The PRISMA Exhibition. In February they will present themselves and… weiterlesen

Tesseract

Crisp and serrated, Tesseract is a study in modernity and restraint. As it plunged into classical references, it earned its contemporaneity through whetted endings and constrained curves, lending a focused aspect to texts and titles. With optical sizes for text and a display, Tesseract shimmers across media. The Display size plays the wide aperture and x-height card, with chiseled terminals and see-through counterspace. The Text size is quieter, with a firm and sturdy structure for immersive reading… weiterlesen

Typeface of the Month: Arkit

This Sans Serif gives you both: a geometric, working horse that fits in any point size and becomes a special and playful companion for display applications in the thicker cuts. Arkit is a «constructivist» sans but beneath its geometric appearance lurk humanist undertones and an organic essence that can be felt rather than seen—as for instance in the slightly tapered strokes. Arkit has a big x-height and is suitable for signage and many display applications. It also performs well as a book face, in body… weiterlesen
