The new Yearbook of Type features White, Black. Gray!
I am happy to see my article, White, Black. Gray! – Why Sketching Matters, published in the new Yearbook of Type (#4 2019/20). It is part of a comprehensive series of instructive articles focused on various aspects of type design. My article appears at the beginning of the book in order to reflect that sketching happens at the beginning of the design process and provides the basis for a typeface’s development.Cover of the Yearbook of Type 2019/20, published by Slanted Publishers.

The Yearbook of Type is a practical guide that helps typeface users to stay up to date with the latest type design trends and innovations. It showcases detailed presentations of more than 150 type families from around the globe. Highly recommended!
Gerhard Hanappi book set in Sindelar and Acorde
Now that’s a project we are really happy about. The book about famous Austrian football (soccer) player and architect Gerhard Hanappi is entirely set in Sindelar and Acorde. The book was designed by Austrian designer Peter Duniecki and published by the Swiss publishing house Park Books.Cover of Fußballer Gerhard Hanappi Architekt, set in Acorde.

Why are we so happy about it? First, the book is really well designed, and second, we love football. As you may know, the type family Sindelar is named after famous Austrian football player Matthias Sindelar. Interestingly Sindelar and Hanappi played at the two rivalling Viennese Clubs Austria Wien and Rapid Wien (not at the same time though). The book achieves something that in real life is not very likely: One player of Austria Wien supports a project by a player of Rapid Wien. The result of this collaboration is really convincing. Just have a look yourself!

In addition, the book contains a comprehensive text section in which well-known authors from various cultures and academic disciplines explore their relationships to type design. Definitely worth a read!
Paul T. Frankl’s autobiography entirely set in Acorde
Another great example of Acorde in use: Paul T. Frankl’s autobiography offers a unique insight into the rise of American modernism from an insider’s point of view. It sheds light on Paul T. Frankl and his contemporaries as well as on Austrian and American culture in the first half of the twentieth century.Cover of Paul T. Frankl’s autobiography, set in Acorde.
