Wochenender

The books of the Wochenender series are companions for trips and short getaways to great areas that are not far from the big cities. Shown are wonderful places, shops, stores, and places to stay. For a weekend or longer, at any time of the year. The idea for the Wochenender was developed over many years in the mind of Elisabeth Frenz.

Medienhaus Lectures 2021

Among other things, design is always performance. The Medienhaus Lectures 2021 take a look at performance in design beyond the moment of presentation. Type, color, materiality, etc. are design elements that have their own performativity. The same is true for the human body. So could the design process be considered a performance? How diverse are the bodies involved? How differentiated is the body image in the field of design? And, what are the performative effects on bodies of norms and rules derived… learn more

Typeface of the Month: Everett Mono

With the month of November, we want to introduce you to our new Typeface of the Month: Everett Mono. The monospace version of the already very well developed Everett from the Swiss type foundry TYPE.WELTKERN®.

The typographic program became then more ambitious: translating 20 styles of… learn more

Pleasure

With great „pleasure“ we would like to introduce you to the newly released typeface Pleasure by Pizza Typefaces. The Pleasure font is almost a running grotesque font. However, its geometric shapes did not resist the urge to be led, for certain letters, to an extrapolation of the terminals by converting them into loops. A characteristic that gives the typeface an original taste and a certain irony in the rolling of the eyes. Launched in March 2020 by Mothi Limbu of FlirtStudio, Pleasure is… learn more

Frankfurt Airport, April 2020

Frankfurt Airport, April 2020 is a book that captures the surreal time in the pandemic year 2020 and takes an unusual look at Frankfurt Airport in a state of exception. At Frankfurt Airport, up to seven million people a month embarked on their journeys before Corona. Photographer Marc Krause documented the empty airport at the height of the lockdown in April 2020. Where jetliners used to take off every few minutes, nearly everything has ground to a halt. The bright blue sky above the tarmac is… learn more

It is a zero bullshit type family available in five weights across regular, condensed, and oblique sub-families. Its blatant brick-like construction is honest, coarse, and unapologetic.
