Due to actual cir­cum­stances, the lec­ture has been can­celed. Thomas wasn’t able to get another flight to Poland. The lec­ture will be post­poned to a date in mid may. We will inform you when we get a new date. We are very sorry for any inconvenience.

„Art and Typog­ra­phy“:
On Beauty, Ugli­ness, Not Only in Typography

The King of Cape Arcona, Thomas Schos­tok aka {ths} will hold a speech about typog­ra­phy, design and art. To him the clas­si­cal bor­ders that are drawn between com­mer­cial and non-commercial art are blurred. The three dis­ci­plines are strongly influ­enc­ing each other, so that one couldn’t exist with­out the other. What­ever {ths} is work­ing on, he is look­ing for the beauty of imper­fec­tion. Every type­face and every design needs a cer­tain amount of ugli­ness to become inter­est­ing and beau­ti­ful in a deeper and more touch­ing way than super­fi­cial beauty could be.

You might think, that we at Cape Arcona lost a lit­tle bit our favor for extra­or­di­nary type­faces? Naa, come on. We still have the rock ‘n’ roll, baby. This leads us to the next point, which is CA Sivle. Uhh, what a font.  It’s the cra­zi­est baby in town, and yeah, it’s FREE. Sivle<>elviS?

A new year, a new type­face. This time we have some­thing very spe­cial for you. Our Pres­i­dent of Cape Arcona, Mr. Ste­fan Claudius made this won­der­ful text type­face: CA Nor­mal.

CA Nor­mal merges influ­ences from Euro­pean grotesques and Amer­i­can Goth­ics, breed­ing an exper­i­men­tal mon­grel. The under­ly­ing con­cept stays in the back­ground, giv­ing the design a great self-evidence. Although it is doubt­ful if there can be such thing as neu­tral­ity, CA Nor­mal comes pretty close to what peo­ple mean when speak­ing of a neu­tral font. Nev­er­the­less it’s not face­less, anony­mous or con­found able. It’s just that the charm comes from sub­tle details rather than obvi­ous design fea­tures. CA Nor­mal comes in 15 fonts with 5 weights and 3 styles and fea­tur­ing small caps, lig­a­tures, old­style and lin­ing fig­ures.
