The Cornelia typeface was specifically created for Wannée, a traditional Dutch cookbook and is used in headings and promotional designs. "Cornelia is what we call a 'undesigned' typeface," explains van Wageningen. "In other words, it's just as straight and blunt as the
original Dutch cuisine itself."
Theo was created for a series of children's books. "This typeface plays with the idea of mixing uppercase and lowercase type," says van Wageningen. "The basic shape of this typeface is inspired by wooden blocks childeren like to play with."
Novo Typo designed this set of typefaces to illustrate the brand-values of Only Natural, a company that produces stationary, notebooks on a
eco-friendly, fair trade way. The colourful, typographic wallpaper forms the basis of the corporate identity.
Sjiq was originally designed for the packaging of Only Natural's touch pen. "The logo was created first," explains van Wageningen. "Then it became necessary to make a complete font for the standard packaging, several in-store displays, posters and advertising were created with this typeface." The modular based typeface was espacially created for use in large display sizes.
Part of the eclectic Gagarin family, Sonia was specially created for an art-cookbook called Kook. "This typeface is an invitation to designers to stretch and modify the basic shapes of the characters," adds van Wageningen.
Some of these typefaces shown here are available to buy via the Novo Typo web shop.
