Custom Typeface Family

As a substantial part of the new corporate identity of the Traumzeit Festival we created a characteristic, but also flexible typeface. Starting with the design of compressed caps for headlines, the typeface was soon expanded by a condensed weight for text-setting and further developed into a fully functional font with two widths and two weights. Both weights are very space-efficient, which was — apart from aesthetic considerations — an important issue in the process of design. The Traumzeit typeface is a mixture of industrial harshness and friendly round forms, reflecting the spirit of fusion, which is basically what the whole festival is about. Later the type family was expanded into what is now sold under the name CA Oskar.
