    The “Basics” are the introduction to the four-year Bachelor course in Visual Communication at the UdK Berlin. The Basics blog documents lectures, seminars, workshops and other events. The main typeface used on the website is NB Akademie (Neubau Berlin). It’s accompanied by Clarendon Graphic (Optimo) and Euclid Stencil (Swiss Typefaces) for teasers and header graphics. The same typographic palette is also used for lecture posters.

    Video still from an interview with light artist Jean-Louis Gafner. It’s unclear why Clarendon Graphic’s spacing of ts was altered here.
