CA Cula Superfat
Do you know, that we love every­thing that makes us fat? Meat, ice cream, choco­late, fonts.
Oh yes, fonts, CA Cula Super­fat is the new (fat) baby in town and it really makes us very hun­gry.
Taken from the upcom­ing CA Cula fam­ily, CA Cula Super­fat is a dis­play type­face meant for use in extremely large sizes—but hey it’s up to you to use it in any size you want. A cen­tral Euro­pean char­ac­ter set, loads of lig­a­tures, old­style and lin­ing fig­ures is what makes it so lovely — plus the attribute: “made with love from lovers”.

After decades of research, the Cape Arcona Font Research Depart­ment has finally found out what peo­ple really need: they need super­fat fonts. In order to accom­plish this need we are start­ing a new series of fonts. They will all be super­fat weights for exist­ing or upcom­ing font fam­i­lies and be sold sep­a­rately.
The first one is CA Goth­ique Super­fat. The name says it all. It is aes­thet­i­cally located between Amer­i­can Goth­ics and Euro­pean Grotesques, with small caps and use­ful Open­Type fea­tures, like old­style and lin­ing fig­ures, pro­por­tional and tab­u­lar numer­als. Watch out for the whole font fam­ily com­ing soon to this place. And in the mean­time, buy CA Goth­ique Super­fat.

news_smpl_texteron_edNor­mally we don’t win any­thing, cause we nor­mally don’t par­tic­i­pate in com­pe­ti­tions. But this time… it just hap­pened you know. And well we can’t deny to feel hon­ored, at least a bit.
Tex­teron is a clever six weight text-font by Ste­fan Claudius and for the moment you can only buy it at Veer. But as soon as we are allowed to, we will offer it here, at the place of it’s birth.

Some rules in life are sim­ple. If you had a good drink: go and get another one. For type sym­posia it’s basi­cally the same. In 2006 33pt was pretty cool, so here is the next one: 33pt. Eska­pade. Cape Arconas Pres­i­dent, Ste­fan Claudius, helps plan­ning and orga­niz­ing this event with a group of stu­dents and pro­fes­sor Sabine an Huef. The list of speak­ers is impres­sive. Mar­tin Majoor, Rob Meek, Phil Baines, David Crow and ‘Type radio’ to name just a few. For more infor­ma­tion, a time sched­ule and a com­plete list of the ref­er­ents with back­ground info and loads of funny movies, got to
The whole thing starts on fri­day 3rd of april at the Fach­hochschule Dort­mund in Ger­many and lasts till sat­ur­day. Cape Arconas Pres­i­dent will be there and maybe our King too. Hope to meet you for a drink, or not.

Cape TV
Watch our new CAPE TV (in fact, it’s rather old) to become part of the spirit of the Cape Arcona Type Foundry. In the actual episode we are hav­ing a press con­fer­ence and tell you every­thing about the revamp of the Cape web­site. Fur­ther you will learn about our “Dec­la­ra­tion of Nor­mal­ity”. The entire press con­fer­ence is hold in our native lan­guage “Arkon­ish”. But don’t be afraid, we have eng­lish sub­ti­tles.
Watch it!
