Arnhem Display Design Information

TYPE BY Arnhem Display is a member of the Arnhem typeface family and is designed for newspaper headline composition. The original Arnhem family was designed by Fred Smeijers in 1999 for the Nederlandse Staatscourant, the daily newspaper of the Dutch government. The design was conceived for high performance text composition, which in practice it achieves with aplomb, especially where large quantities of text are involved. Arnhem’s roots are in traditional typography with a modern touch, or as Erik Spiekermann has put it, with ‘an edge’. As an editorial design tool, Arnhem’s character, colour and reading quality make it exceptional.

The first version of Arnhem Display was created in 2006 for Mark Porter as part of the redesign of Het Financieele Dagblad, the leading financial newspaper in the Netherlands. The rigours of this initial application have brought about Arnhem Display’s carefully judged details, its gracefully tailored italics, and its crispness throughout.

Arnhem Display is available in three weights of roman and italic designs, Normal, SemiBold, and Bold. The character set includes lining and old style figures (each in tabular and proportional widths); fractions; superiors and inferiors; case sensitive punctuation sets; mathematical and monetary symbols (in tabular and proportional widths); standard and discretionary ligatures; and a complete range of accents for all Western, Central and East European languages based on the Latin script.

Arnhem Display is available in OTF CFF, TTF, WOFF, and WOFF2 formats.
