Birdy

February 2012

A contemporary take on blackletter, inspired by a beer label lettering in Iceland.

Birdy was especially created during the Graphic Design Walk as part of the London Design Festival.The event was organised by the team of GraphicBirdWatching who invited TypeTogether to participate. Veronika was drawing live this new typeface, Birdy, conceived there and then. A projector allowed visitors to follow her drawing letters and gave opportunity to ask questions directly about the design process. Birdy is now available for free to download. The character set is limited to upper- and lowercase a some basic punctuation. An extension is in progress. Keep in touch for updates.

Birdy has been exhibited at the recent Blacklecker exhibition in Berlin at Mota Italic. See images here.
