    A free newspaper with a map and address list as a means of stimulating both tourists and residents of The Hague to visit more local makers and shops outside the main streets. It was a logical choice to limit the type palette to fonts made by designers who work(ed) or studied in The Hague. A decision that left us with way too much typefaces that easily work together – the work of established type designers and their students share some logic or vision, more than we expected. We settled for recent typefaces form the last 5 years or so, that could cope with large pages and short texts. On a detail level, choosing ‘local’ type shows in the text with plenty of Dutch ij-ligatures, (plus one j-acute just for fun).
