ABOUT







Christian Bordeaux

Swiss type designer at Fontnest who designed these fonts: Neuro (2006), Lubmin (2008). He writes: The Lubmin typeface is a product of adaption of a standard character set (by VEB Typoart, Dresden) that was applied on roadname signs in the former Democratic Republic of Germany. It is, as far as documented, a production of early Prussian standard typefaces, which were also pattern for nowadays DIN font. The type went into action in many ways: Road signs, railway and military signals and also car plates; so almost anywhere a functional, easy reproduceable type was needed. The original letters were often different from road sign to road sign, because the signpainters had a variable elaborateness in painting the letters; some shapes are much more angular than others. So it had been a way of finding a compromise in this case. Also some points were interpreted in a new way, curves had been changed a little bit to accord readability aspects; but all in all, the Lubmin type is as original as in the time of the #Iron Curtain#.
