Vialog

Indicies : Typefaces : Vialog

Vialog, available from Linotype as part of their Platinum Collection, was designed by Werner Schneider and Helmut Ness.

In 1988, Schneider designed a proposal for a universal European signage typeface. This typeface was adapted together with Helmut Ness of Fuenfwerken at the Fachhochschule Wiesbaden in the late 1990s for use in the new Munich transit system. Ness, among others, would go on to completely redesign the city of Munich's transit authority system. Vialog would be used for everything, from large signage down to tiny print on pocket-sized maps.
