The project «Call for Type» delivers insight into the new world of type design. It presents, in words and pictures, a time-related compilation of current positions in the field of font design. Especially eye-catching fonts are not only displayed, but also rounded off by the statements of young font designers. So these exhibits can also provide an opportunity for further reflection and discussion.
The exhibition architecture is based on the grid used in type design, consisting of
baseline, x-height and ascender-height. Type-Specimen are giving information about
idea and design of the exhibited fonts.
Cutouts in the exhibition stands let the visitors discover sketches and objects
related to the typefaces, hidden on first sight and encourage to interact inside
