The Type and Site of Form Music

Type
We finally made a decision on the text font we will use for Form Music. The font is called «The Neutral Typeface*» and is beeing developed by german type / graphic designer Kai Bernau, student of the kabk in The Hague.

Every now and then we get a fresh version of the font from Kai since it is still in the works. Nonetheless, it is not too far from getting final.

We favor «The Neutral Typeface*» because it picks up on the most commonly known features and details from different epochs and styles which fits exactly in our concept for Form Music. On the other hand, it still expresses a certain restraint and neutrality.

As a matter of fact, the idea behind this project was to create a font that has no associations to anything but a typeface itself — a neutral typeface
Like in the imagery, It was important for us to find a font which not to be associated with a single musical style.

Check out the font specimen!

About sampler

This site is part of a diploma by The D and Seb in Graphic-Design at the University of Applied Sciences, Zurich.

Together with Mark Kirby from Vertical Form we are developing a visual identity for a sideline of Vertical Form called Form Music which will provide music consultancy, supervision and licensing solutions to the TV, film and advertising industries.

Sampler is here to make communication between him and us a lot easier. We hope that every important step concerning our work will be comprehensible.

Feel free to comment!
