ABOUT







Marit Angenita Otto

Dutch type designer who published the experimental typeface Jazmo in 2012 at URW: Jazmo is an offspring of an assignment I did for a Dutch architect. A classic building and coincidently the place of my studio in my hometown Zwolle, Netherlands, needed to be renovated. My job was to design the house numbers and signs for this building. This building I refer to was built in 1932 and designed according to the New objectivity architecture. Now it accommodates several artist and craftsmen and also houses students. In my design I used elements of the Art Nouveau.

In 2013, she published Smooth Buggaloo (URW++), a typeface that was inspired by the music of the sixties. Le Rock (2013, URW++) is a bouncy freeform display typeface. Labyrindo (2013, URW++) is inspired by Greek labyrinths.

In 2014, Marit published Pipeline (URW++), a gaspipe or paperclip typeface, Filistique (URW++, a flowing informal unconnected script typeface), and Nipon (URW++), a display typeface.

In 2015, still at URW++, she created the stylish display typeface Democrazia, the hybrid oriental/Arabic emulation typeface Eurabia, the display typeface family Kosmique, the meccano typeface C-Nation, the squarish stencil typeface Constructa, the squarish revolutionary typeface Picastro (the name is a contraction of Picasso and Castro; not to be confused with Leon Hulst's signage typeface Picastro, made a year earlier), and the display typeface New Daily.

Typefaces from 2016: Roundabout (an elliptical sans, URW++), Beyond Babylon (an Arabic simulation typeface, URW++)
