Descrip­ti­on

»The idea for the font Arni­cae began sim­ply with the impul­si­on to crea­te a new font. The inspi­ra­ti­on came from the wri­tings on labels of old apo­the­ca­ry bot­t­les and let­te­rings of faca­des of coun­cils in Vien­na.

Both the bot­t­les and the coun­cils let­te­rings are from the 1920s and have diver­se cha­rac­te­ris­tics and details that incor­po­ra­ted in the forms of Arni­cae.

Arni­cae is a sans line­ar anti­qua who­se cos­t­ruc­ted forms found depen­dence in the Bau­haus geo­me­try. Her appearan­ce is neu­ter, clean and the indi­vi­du­al details media­te self awa­reness. It can be used as dis­play font as well as for head­lines and for short texts.

Its name comes from the Tic­tu­ra Arni­cae, an inflamma­ti­on inhi­bito­ry medi­ci­ne which is made out of Arni­ca (Mar­gue­ri­te).

Arni­cae is now avail­ab­le at www.ultratypes.com
