Can anyone help me id this one? thanks magnus
Should be 'Liant', by Ingrid Liche..
Thanks. it's very close but not 100%. It's so close it looks like someone might have been a bit too inspired and made their own version. magnus
Yea, I noticed that your sample may not be identical to 'Liant', but I thought that I should and would rather post the original source of 'Inspiration'..
does this sample came from weleda? weleda did a few changes on liant. you can find a few freebes in the web. unfortunately i dont find a link in my bookmarks. try to google with anthroposophie. http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&ie=UTF-8&q=anthroposophie+font&spell=1
actually weleda hired ingrid liche to design a font which based on the philosopy of rudolf steiners anthroposophy. those glyphs were carved in wood. the roots of this style came from the jugendstil/art nuveau in which steiner evolve his theory. in waldorfschools you can see many of those carved typfaces. nowadays weleda use a modified liant -version for all printing matters.
Stephen: i guess this is for some kind of vegetable store? "Moroten" means "The Carrot" in swedish.
'The Carrot' is pretty much all you need to know to survive in sweden and the other scandinavian countries. :-)
There is a freeware typeface which is based on the same typeface model FF Liant is based on. I really don't know if it's a rip-off or a different digitization. Maybe it's that one. I'll see if I can find additional information
Yep, that's the one I am talking about. It's used by the Steiner Schools.
From a Stockholm storefront:
Yeah, one of the first Svensk words I learned from my Svensk mother. Sadly, growing up in the US, I didn't learn many more. I think this was actually a high-end clothing shoppe.
