Nordvest 8 styles
Nordvest emphasises the horizontal direction of the line, reversing the traditional order of thick and thins. Dressed in an organic drawing, the extra weight on its horizontals has been carefully molded and blended into the letterforms so as not to stand out as distracting. A versatile type family in four weights and eight styles, it takes on a friendly, approachable appearance in the heavier weights, while the lighter text styles embody all the marks of a workhorse text face. This targeted, but versatile range makes it interesting for applications in editorial design, branding, packaging etc. Nina Stössinger from Switzerland is a graduate from TypeMedia at KABK and recently joined Frere-Jones Type as senior typeface designer. Nordvest is her second major typeface.
