Austrian design exhibition Subtext: Typedesign in Vienna

Yesterday the opening of the design exhibition Subtext: Typedesign took place at the Designforum in Vienna’s Museumsquartier. The opening was a great success and attracted more than 500 people. The exhibition subtitled zeitgenössisch–lokal: contemporary–austrian showcases Austrian type designs from the last fifteen years and impressively documents the liveliness of the Austrian type design scene.

The exhibition is organised by the Typographic Society Austria (tga – Typographische Gesellschaft Austria) and was curated by Andreas Pawlik and Martin Tiefenthaler.

At the opening Anita Kern, an Austrian graphic designer, writer, and profound expert on Austrian design history, spoke about the history and the current state of Austrian type design.

Even the Designforum’s entrance was crowded with visitors at the opening. This informative chart explains the workflow during the development of a type family.


Here at Willerstorfer Font Foundry we are proud that our award winning type families Acorde and Sindelar are part of this beautiful exhibition.
