Background

Arnhem Display is the latest addition to the Arnhem font family and is designed for newspaper headline composition. The original Arnhem family was designed by Fred Smeijers in 1999 for the Nederlandse Staatscourant, the daily newspaper of the Dutch government. The design was conceived for high performance text composition, which in practice it achieves with aplomb, making it a favorite choice among designers worldwide.
Arnhem’s roots are in traditional typography with a modern touch, or as Erik Spiekermann has put it, with ‘an edge’. As an editorial design tool, Arnhem’s character, colour and reading quality make it exceptional.

The first version of Arnhem Display was created in 2006 for Mark Porter as part of the redesign of Het Financieele Dagblad, the leading financial newspaper in the Netherlands. The rigours of this initial application have brought about Arnhem Display’s carefully judged details, its gracefully tailored italics, and its crispness throughout.
