Arnhem Design Information

Arnhem, by Fred Smeijers, was initially designed for the Nederlandse Staatscourant, the daily newspaper of the Dutch state. This typeface can be classified as a very functional design suitable for setting long text. The family consists of four weights: Blond, Normal, Bold and Black. Each weight is available in a roman and an italic design, and both have matching small caps, lining figures, non-lining figures and small cap figures.

Arnhem Normal has a strong colour, which is good especially in small sizes and in less than optimal printing circumstances. Arnhem does not have a Light weight, instead there is a Blond version. The Blond a bit too heavy to be classified as a real light is meant to be used in those circumstances in which a strong colour is not really wanted or needed.

Arnhem text faces are accompanied by titling variants - Arnhem Fine - and newspaper headline variants - Arnhem Display - in roman and italic designs. Arnhem Fine was especially designed for the use in larger sizes. For more information please see Arnhem Fine. Arnhem Display fonts were conceived for newspaper headlines, requiring a space-efficient, compact variant.

Arnhem fonts are available in OTF CFF, TTF, WOFF, and WOFF2 formats.
