Media journal Graphische Revue presents Acorde

Graphische Revue is an Austrian media and design journal that has been published for more than one hundred years. In the current issue (No. 5/2010) Christian Gutschi introduces the type family Acorde and explains some of its characteristics in his article Acorde: charaktervoller Alleskönner (Acorde: characterful all-rounder).

Further he suggests some potential applicabilities and gives an insight on the values that were important to me as a designer during the development of Acorde. The whole article is set in Acorde which gives the readers an impression of how the type family works in text and in larger sizes.

4c magazine introduces Acorde as headline typeface

The Austrian printing and design magazine 4c has started using the type family Acorde for headlines in its current issue (No. 6/2010). Acorde’s well-balanced proportions and its harmonious interplay with the magazine’s text face Premiéra make it a perfect choice for this purpose.

In the current issue Rainer Scheichelbauer introduces Acorde to the magazine’s readers. Furthermore he gives a brief overview of my biography and my career as a type designer.
