Exhibition of Cologne’s font design
fonts / CGN took place in Austria at the symposium ›unvertraute Nähe …noch ein Buch‹ organised by tga (typographic association austria).
The design is simple and economic: first, we printed the blue background and then all applications were overprinted in black. To bring an exciting element into the exhibition and to have comparable parameters, we developed the idea to show specific letters in the head of each poster. ›H‹ to show proportion, ›e‹ to show mentality, a significant character that stands for the design, a character that could be used solitarily and the character that caused the most problems during the design process.
