Evangelisches Frankfurt is now typeset in Sindelar
It is always great to see when one of our typefaces perfectly contributes to a great work of design. With this newspaper that’s really the case: Evangelisches Frankfurt is the newspaper of the Protestant Church in Frankfurt. It was designed by German newspaper designer Jan Famira.
The newspaper gets published five times a year and is sent to all Protestants living in Frankfurt free of charge. It seems the newspaper’s new design has easily convinced the audience as the post by a regular reader suggests: »The new design is really well done, very beautiful, appealing, and lively. Thanks a lot for that!« As a foundry we obviously believe that Sindelar, the newspaper’s new text face, plays a major role in this respect.Recent covers of the newspaper of the Protestant Church in Frankfurt.
