    “Shalom Berlin” is the theme of the 29th edition of the Jewish Culture Days, an annual festival presented by the Jüdische Gemeinde zu Berlin. The poster, the program leaflet as well as the website were designed by Hirn Faust Auge.

    Optimo’s AG revival Theinhardt is paired with the intriguing Prophet Medium, a teaser style from an upcoming family by Dinamo. I’m not quite sure yet what to make of Prophet. It reminds me of one of the advanced TypeCooker recipes, like “Recta, as drawn by a Koch pupil”. Jan Novak’s deconstructions of plain sans-serif letterforms come to mind, too.

      The full Prophet family was released today. I’ve learnt that it is inspired by Churchward Georgina.
