    In September 2013, the second edition of Tÿpo St. Gallen took place at the local Schule für Gestaltung. This year’s theme was “Weissraum” (“whitespace”). The puristic visual identity for the typography symposium was built around Christoph Dunst’s Novel Bold (Atlas Font Foundry, 2008).

    The letters ‘T’, ‘y’, ‘p’ and ‘o’ were used as decorative wayfinding elements in front of the venue — as a mobile hanging from a tree, and as floating styrofoam objects in a pond. A giant letter ‘y’ made for an impressive speaker’s podium. For technical reasons, it had to lose its hallmark diaeresis in these dimensional applications.

    Novel was also used on the conference website.
