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.

Interview in Chinese design magazine Design 360°
Asia remains a great terrain for us, our typefaces and our expertise. Next to having two major newspaper clients in India (Mid-Day, Mumbai) and in the Philippines (Philippine Daily Inquirer) who use Sindelar as their text face on a daily basis in their print editions, strong interest in our work has also emerged in China.
