Blackletter with Depth
Enzian is the fruit of a yearlong research fellowship. We set out to design an original typeface inspired by the beautiful form and complex persona of Blackletter script in Germany. The result is a versatile Opentype family that is humble but robust, mysterious yet accessible, contemporary while staying true to its calligraphic roots. Enzian has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence in Type Design by the Type Directors Club.
