Evangelisches Frankfurt is now typeset in Sindelar

It is always great to see when one of our typefaces perfectly contributes to a great work of design. With this newspaper that’s really the case: Evangelisches Frankfurt is the newspaper of the Protestant Church in Frankfurt. It was designed by German newspaper designer Jan Famira.

The newspaper gets published five times a year and is sent to all Protestants living in Frankfurt free of charge. It seems the newspaper’s new design has easily convinced the audience as the post by a regular reader suggests: »The new design is really well done, very beautiful, appealing, and lively. Thanks a lot for that!« As a foundry we obviously believe that Sindelar, the newspaper’s new text face, plays a major role in this respect.

Sindelar wins the iF Design Award in Gold

The iF Design Award Night 2016 in Munich was a memorable and great experience. The impressive BMW Welt was the appropriate and dignified location for the handing over of the iF Design Awards on the 26th of February 2016 in the presence of some 2,000 guests.

Unbelievable, but true: Sindelar strikes again and again. We were honoured by winning the prestigious iF Design Award in Gold for Sindelar, the highly legible text face for news and media design.

The BMW Welt in Munich was the impressive venue of the iF Design Award Night 2016. Stefan Willerstorfer receives the iF Design Award in Gold from managing director Ralph Wiegmann.

Here is the jury’s Gold Statement for Sindelar: »Traditional type design usually has a difficult time in the context of an exciting and colorful design competition. The Sindelar type family, however, has succeeded because, in its smaller point sizes, it offers excellent legibility while only needing minimal space. The Sindelar family includes 18 fonts and 980 lovingly designed glyphs. Besides meeting every criterion for body text, in larger point sizes, the Sindelar family looks well balanced and elegant ... sexy even.«

As you can imagine the mood in our studio is really euphoric and cheerful. Winning one of the world’s most respected design prizes in Gold does not happen every day.
