Acorde presents the most beautiful books of A/D/CH/NL

Like every year the Typographic Society Austria (tga – Typographische Gesellschaft Austria) shows the most beautiful books of Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands in cooperation with the Vienna Public Libraries and the Association of Austrian Book Trade.

The most beautiful books of 2010 can be seen in the Central Library in Vienna from December 7, 2011 to February 4, 2012. The exhibition design is entirely set in Acorde. Since Acorde is used for small text (labels, signs, flyers) as well as for large headlines, the exhibition design is a good example of Acorde’s suitability for all different sizes.

Some impressions from the exhibition of the most beautiful books in Vienna.

Design Journal and Rolf Rehe recommend Acorde

The Design Journal is a bi-annual magazine covering the issues of news design and journalism. It is published by the Society for News Design (SND), an international organisation for news media professionals and visual communicators. SND was founded in 1979 and has about 1000 members worldwide.

In each issue the international newspaper designer Rolf Rehe recommends three typefaces which are appropriate for application in newspaper design. To give the Design Journal’s readers the possibility of judging the qualities of the typefaces themselves, the whole magazine is set in the recommended typefaces.

In the current issue (No. 112) Acorde is used as a secondary typeface for text as well as for headlines and gives proof of its wide applicability in various sizes. »It combines cool, geometric letter elements with the warmth of humanist sans forms. This results in a friendly yet assertive appearance«, states Rolf Rehe.

The Typodarium 2012, a calendar edited by Lars Harmsen and Raban Ruddigkeit and published by Verlag Hermann Schmidt Mainz is now available and features 366 typefaces (one per day) designed by more than 250 designers from 32 countries.

In order to enhance the typographic quality of this year’s calendar, all entries were chosen by a renowned international jury consisting of Roger Black, Michel Chanaud, Yves Peters, Hubert Jocham, and Christian Schwartz. Acorde is one of the selected typefaces and performs the task of presenting Thursday January 26 with great pleasure.

The calendar comes with a box for collecting the torn off calendar sheets. The cover of the 2012 edition of the Typodarium calendar. The front side of January 26 shows three different styles of Acorde. The back side of January 26 contains a short description of Acorde.

German newspaper INFO – Der Südfinder trusts in Acorde

The German newspaper INFO – Der Südfinder is a regional newspaper in Baden-Württemberg with a circulation of more than half a million copies. German newspaper designer Hans Peter Janisch restructured the newspaper and brought its appearance up to date. The new design was presented at the end of May.

The centrepiece of the revised typography was the introduction of Acorde as the newspaper’s main typeface. Acorde is used for text as well as for headlines and demonstrates its ability to be a true workhorse. It perfectly contributes to the fresh and modern feel of the newspaper.

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.
