On Iceland, common waterfowl species belong either to the family of the ducks (including swans and geese) or to the grebe family and the closely related diver family (in America known as loons). Usually one associates them with fresh water birds. The Eider Duck (Somateria mollissima), however, is a bird of (shallow) seas that seek their nesting grounds along the coasts.Click to Edit
Other ducks, like the Common Scoter (Melanitta nigra), the Long-tailed Duck (Clangula hyemalis) and the Harlequin Duck (Histronicus histronicus) breed in and along fresh water environments but seek the seas and oceans outside the breeding season. Although one can observe many species of waterfowl all over Iceland, Mývatn is by far the most interesting place for observing waterfowl.Click to Edit
A contemporary take on blackletter font families
Birdy was specially 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. Whilst thinking about the project, Veronika was inspired by the logo of the Gul beer label in Iceland that uses a kind of inline blackletter. The idea for the event was to draw a new typeface live in front of the audience in one day and a blackletter seemed like a feasable option. A projector allowed visitors to follow Veronika as she drew the letters and allowed the opportunity to ask questions directly about the design process.
After the event Birdy was made available for free to download. Since then it has been exhibited at the Blacklecker exhibition in Berlin at Mota Italic, was the first header of Alphabettes, and was made into an iron-on sticker at Typo Berlin.
