Ooo! It is very nice! Would work well, I think, for architectural signage, but also for product packaging and labeling, my primary focus.

Thanks for posting that!

Now...how or where do we go if we want to buy it, I wonder? If the info is in that PDF presentation, I don't know it, because I don't speak Dutch (or whatever it is).

Thanks, Norman!

Hm...a bit too steep for me, alas.

One thing. When I first saw it, I loved the lower case g. By the end of the presentation, I was wondering how long I would continue to like it.

forever!Well, if the face becomes super popular, that g is going to be a really good way of identifying it.

By the end of the presentation, I was wondering how long I would continue to like it.I like the g but would have made it very slightly differently myself. I'd like to see the lower case j, but maybe that's not possible. Can't find one, anyway.

I like the lower case j very much, and also the upper case R.

The italic lc A and the numeral 4 should win Pullitzer prize.
