Custom fonts anchor Norway’s NRK TV & web

The Norwegian public TV station, NRK, commissioned TypeTogether to create a tailored typeface for their new branding. Based on Leftloft’s LFT Etica, which had been already established in NRK’s identity program, the custom type for NRK is a collaboration with Leftloft and Scandinavian Design Group (SDG). After several rounds of testing and refining the typefaces, the two fonts (a book and bold weight of NRK Etica Slab Semicondensed) are now used together with LFT Etica on the web and TV for headlines, graphics, and some supportive areas. As a spin-off from this custom project, Leftloft, together with Octavio Pardo, continued to expand and develop a whole set of weights which then became the workmanlike LFT Etica Sheriff.

Type in use: Portada and Soleil, Design Schau Magazine

Munich celebrates design each year during the DESIGN SCHAU, organised by Munich Creative Business Week (MCBW). This year the programme consisted of 155 events, exhibitions, activities, and conferences across the whole city for the week of 3–11 March 2018. The magazine designers at Kochan & Partners chose Portada Text for all body copy and Soleil as the main titling font and for captions. A few of our other fonts also made an appearance: Trevor, Fino, Bely, and Iskra. TypeTogether is a proud sponsor of MCBW this year, and in particular of Design Schau magazine and the Editorial Design Conference (EDCH).
