Brexit and Trump’s Wall—it seems that borders around the world are currently being closed rather than permeable. It’s a good thing that more and more font families are mediating between languages and cultures at the same time, so you can use one font for multiple font systems.
The Typodarium 2020 therefore shows the latest font trends, the “weirdest” display types, the latest bread fonts and other proofs of the vital type community as well as a bi-script font family every Sunday. A writing system for diplomacy and tolerance. A writing system that brings down the walls in concrete heads and tears down political or military boundaries.
There are differences between Arabic and Hebrew, Japanese and Latin, but visually there are also many similarities. Communication overcomes borders. Communication needs writing. Type designers react to the wishes of their customers. And these customers from business and society think more globally and further than some headlines might suggest. The Sundays of the Typodarium 2020 define the silver lining on the time horizon: We are one world!
