4. Neumann Serif Typeface via Typedepot

Didones inspired – sturdy and “mechanical” Neumann. It all started with the idea of a revival of the Quirinus typeface, designed by Alessandro Butti and published by the Italian type foundry Nebiolo back in 1939. We first saw the typeface back in 2012 in the Vasil Ionchev’s book “Шрифтът през вековете” (not translated in English) and instantly fell in love with it – it was a different kind of high-contrast design – way more technical-looking than the other didones. Designed by Alexander Nedelev and Veronika Slavova.
