    Melly’s Cookie Bar on Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal in Amsterdam offers home-baked cookies and gourmet coffee. The organic-looking typeface is Euphorigenic, a freebie from Ray Larabie (Typodermic) with descending capitals and an eccentric ‘g’. It reminds me a little of Phaeton. Euphorigenic is used both for the identity and signage as well as for the packaging of Melly’s Argentine-style products like alfajores and dulce de leche.

      Ahh, thanks for posting this, Florian. I wondered about this type when we visited the shop last year. The font is kind of messy and unstable but it works for the dainty, rustic feel of the place, and the consistency of the branding makes it respectable. The cookies were good too.

      Agreed on all counts – another case that proves how much depends on the execution.

      Thanks for sharing this. I was browsing online and I just found it. I designed the packaging when I was working with Floor Wesseling in Amsterdam. He was the designer of the identity. Amazing cakes and alfajores by Guillermo.
