Font Nouveau

Art Nouveau – also known as Jugendstil – is an international movement and style of art, architecture and applied art – especially the decorative arts – that peaked in popularity at the turn of the 20th century (1890–1905). A reaction to academic art of the 19th century, it is characterized by organic, especially floral and other plant-inspired motifs, as well as highly-stylized, flowing curvilinear forms. Curated by Yves Peters.

Croissant - designed in 1978 and published by ITC. #fonts #artnouveau Phillip Kelly first drew the Croissant typeface in 1978 for Letraset. Back in the 1970s and 80s, Letraset's rubdown lettersheets were a popular means of designing with type. This experimental typeface is built up out of round, brush-like strokes, creating heavy, and black letters. These forms are best used for display signage and headline text.

Arnold Boecklin - designed in 1904 and published by Linotype. #fonts #artnouveau The font Arnold Boecklin appeared in 1904 with the font foundry Otto Weisert. Traces of the floral forms of the Jugendstil can still be seen in this typeface. Alphabets of this type were mainly meant for larger point sizes, as on posters. A decorative feel was much more important than legibility and Arnold Boecklin was of particular importance to the book design of the Jugendstil movement.

Eckmann - designed in 1900 and published by Linotype. #fonts #artnouveau The font Eckmann is named after its designer, Otto Eckmann, and appeared with the Klingspor type foundry in 1900. The influence of the Jugendstil is clear to see in the flowing floral contours of the letters. This font was made for larger point sizes, like on posters, and while relatively legible, it is not meant for smaller print. The font was often used in book titles and advertisements of the 19th century.

ITC Noovo - designed in 1997 and published by ITC. #fonts #artnouveau ITC Noovo is from British designer Phill Grimshaw and grew out of his work on ITC Rennie Mackintosh. He says, "I still had 'Nouveau' coming out of my ears" and he drew it after a series of computer-intensive projects, "when I was missing the smell of permanent marker pens and the feel of paper." ITC Noovo is highly stylized yet works as both a text and display typeface.
