  • typeface

The concept was to separate images from text. The artworks “expose” the type, rendering the text visible. We created our own typeface to bring the concept to life and to give the identity a distinctive look.

Typeface

The Albrecht typeface shares the characteristics and proportions of the swiss sans serif typefaces of the 1950s. Constructed from a perfect circle, it has 2 master-cuts with an additional 7 variations based on these 2 masters. The whole font family includes 9 cuts and 4 inline-cuts:

In accordance to the ISO 8859-1 standard the fontfamily includes 242 characters:
