Background

Standing Type is Maurice Göldner’s third design for OurType. The design is based on the strokes and lifts of traditional humanist minuscules written with a broad-edged pen. The lifts provide a pattern of near-breaks that give the letterforms a modestly decorative effect. Like typefaces such as Allegro (Hans Bohn, 1936), the design is stencil in effect but intentionally not so in execution.

Standing Type is part of the OurType’s latest release – the Stencil Fonts Series – launched on April 19 2012 to accompany the exhibition ‘Between Writing & Type: the Stencil Letter’ held at Catapult Gallery, Antwerp. Curated by Eric Kindel and Fred Smeijers, the exhibition showcases the history and development of the stencil letter and displays a selection of historical and contemporary artifacts and their applications.
