Background

During a stay in Paris, French magazines with their elegant, extravagant appearance inspired Siegfried Ruckel for this typeface. He wanted to design a kind of rounded typeface without using the common methods. So, he took advantage from the visual limitations of our eyes: the stroke endings appear soft when seen from a distance or in small point sizes but reveal their peculiar forms at a closer look. It’s a contemporary type design with vertical contrast, and especially the characters a, g and y show the calligraphic touch. Alternate characters, for example a, g, k, s, y, add typographic versatility. Siegfried is sure that it’s a very suitable typeface for magazine design from headlines to longer texts as well as for advertising, packaging, corporate design.
