Typodarium 2019 features Sindelar on October 3

»A fresh font a day keeps the boredom away« is the motto of Typodarium, the popular series of annual tear-off calendars. In its eleventh edition, Typodarium 2019 highlights chromatic typefaces that bring colour and versatility into the design process. Typodarium 2019 features 365 typefaces (one per day) designed by 229 designers from all around the world.

The calendar was designed by Florian Hauer, edited by Raban Ruddigkeit and Lars Harmsen, and published by Verlag Hermann Schmidt. Sindelar is one of the selected typefaces and has been assigned an honourable task: It gives next year’s Day of German Unity, October 3, a dignified typographic appearance.

Bil Dawson’s convincing answer to a frequently asked question. Typodarium 2019 comes with a colourful box for collecting the torn off calendar sheets. The Day of German Unity, October 3, is set in three different styles of Sindelar. The back side of October 3 contains a short description of Sindelar.

Muntermacher is entirely set in our type families

Muntermacher, that’s what the quarterly journal of the market town of Moosburg in Carinthia (Austria) is called. A Muntermacher is a person or substance that wakes you up. And yes, it does. Great to see a journal from a small market town offering information to its inhabitants in such visual quality.

The magazine was conceived by Austrian architect and journalist Wojciech Czaja and by Austrian graphic designer Helga Innerhofer. As a foundry we are especially proud of this feature: The journal is entirely set in our type families Acorde and Sindelar which complement each other perfectly well.

Two covers of the quarterly journal Muntermacher. Various impressions of Muntermacher which perfectly show Acorde’s and Sindelar’s excellence.
