    Wir und ich und Du! (“Us and me and you!”) is a newspaper with event notes and other local news, published twice a year by the pastoral care for disabled people in the diocese of Augsburg.

    For the typography, LiehrDesign selected Proza as the main typeface, making good use of the better part of its 12 styles. Dietmar Liehr comments:

    The chosen size is very large for body text, because visually impaired readers are part of the target group. For them, the clear shapes of a sans serif are crucial. Proza combines this aspect with a warmth that is evoked by the varied stroke width of the implied broad nib. Like few other typefaces, Proza truly earns the name of a “humanist” sans serif.

    It is paired with two stylistically related typefaces: The nameplate uses two weights of the less calligraphic and more contained Agilita. For the main headline, Proza Bold is contrasted with the monolinear Ideal Sans Thin, which is lighter than what Proza’s weight range has to offer.
