Background

Notre Dame font is a part of the 1990 program ““Type before Gutenberg”“, which included the work of twelve contemporary font designers and represented styles from across the ages. Notre Dame font was designed by Karlgeorg Hoefer, who was inspired by the structure of forms once used mainly for liturgical purposes. Digital techniques made it possible to add Gothic ornaments and borders to the font, perfect for designing anything which should have a late Gothic feel. Notre Dame™is a trademark of Linotype GmbH and may be registered in certain jurisdictions.
