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
