Museumsinsel Berlin (Museum Island)

Contributed by Stephen Coles on Mar 29th, 2012.
    This is a wonderfully made interactive kiosk in the coin collection of the Bode Museum. I was supposed to be searching for coins, but I typed the font name instead. I hope no one was looking or they would discover I was a typoholic and not a numismatist.

    I hadn’t really appreciated FF Typestar (by Steffen Sauerteig of eBoy fame) until I saw it used in a big way for the identity and signage of Berlin’s “Museum Island” (Museumsinsel). This version is slightly customized — the most extreme glyphs (‘r’, ‘t’, and ‘y’) were tamed.
