    Amsterdam based studio thonik designed the identity for this Rotterdam museum using a custom multiline typeface by Radim Peško (inspired by Lance Wyman’s 1968 Mexico City Olympics identity) and FF Schulbuch Nord (a Helvetica variant with alternate early reader forms for ‘a’ and ‘l’).

    The website text is set in plain old Arial, perhaps because the site was launched pre-webfonts.

      I think this post should include the Boymans typeface by Radim Pesko…

      Boymans typeface is not available as a retail typeface, yet it is licensed to both Boymans and Mexican newspaper El Universal.

      According to Radim Pesko “Boymans was originally designed in 2003 as part of the identity developed by Mevis & Van Deursen for Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam.”
