As trend radar and typo-inspiration, as up-to-date-keeper and as eye-catcher on designer tables the Typodarium has conquered its firm place—and designers are eagerly waiting in August to see which small, fine extra Raban Ruddigkeit and Lars Harmsen have given the cute calendar in the Schriftschatz collection box this time. Before we tell you, we would like to say that the Typodarium 2021 shines in twelve cheerful colors and, in addition to typo vitality, brings colorful joy to everyday creative life. Once again, it is packed in a colorful, solid collection box in which your special font treasures are well protected and waiting to be used. As always, you will find the degree of expansion and where to buy the fonts on the back of the daily papers.
And what is the Typo-Schmankerl 2021?
On Sundays there is not only more variability in the appointment calendar, but also in the Typodarium: 52 variable fonts are presented by the classic among typo calendars. Flexible in use, they solve even the trickiest challenges in graphic design.
Lars Harmsen and Raban Ruddigkeit not only have their ears very close to the pulse of the typography scene, they are an integral part of it. Every year they succeed in tracking down the hippest new creations in type design, discovering new type designers before they are on everyone's lips and in all designs. Over the years, the two editors have developed an unmistakable feeling for the grassroots movements of serifs—so the Typodarium 2021 brings a breath of fresh air to agencies and production departments, magazine and book design, web and print, packaging and fashion. And on your desk.
