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.

News from Mumbai: Sindelar is Mid-Day’s new text face

Next to the Philippine Daily Inquirer in Makati (Metro Manila), another large Asian newspaper also started using Sindelar as their new text face in 2016: India’s morning daily newspaper Mid-Day from Mumbai.


Mid-Day is a mainstream newspaper in compact format that carries the following sections from Monday to Saturday: local news, national news, international news, lifestyle, films, and sports. Of these sections, local news is stated as the tabloid’s key focus. The newspaper was established in Mumbai in 1979 and has an estimated readership base of half a million people. It is among the top 10 Indian newspapers by readership.


Since its introduction in 2016, Sindelar has been used in the newspaper for text as well as for headlines and appears in combination with the sans serif typeface Benton Sans.

That’s how Sindelar is applied in the Philippine Daily Inquirer

We have mentioned it before and it’s great news indeed: The Philippine Daily Inquirer started using Sindelar as their new text face in October 2016. The Philippine Daily Inquirer is the most widely read broadsheet newspaper in the Philippines with a daily circulation of 260,000 copies.


In the meantime a huge package from Asia containing quite a few different issues of the daily newspaper has arrived here in Vienna and we have had the time to look at the application of Sindelar in great detail.


In order to share this experience with you, we selected exemplary pages and took photographs of them. Within the newspaper, Sindelar is combined with two other high-quality typefaces: Tobias Frere-Jones’ Mallory and Commerical Type’s Druk.
