Standing Type.

Standing Type Design Information

Standing Type is Maurice Göldner’s third design. The design is based on the strokes and lifts of traditional humanist minuscules written with a broad-edged pen. The lifts provide a pattern of near-breaks that give the letterforms a modestly decorative. Similarly to typefaces such as Allegro (Hans Bohn, 1936), the design is stencil in effect but intentionally not so in execution.

Standing Type is one in a series of stencil fonts originally released as part of the OurType Stencil Series. Standing Type’s first release coincided with the opening of the exhibition ‘Between Writing & Type: the Stencil Letter’ on 19 April 2012 at Catapult gallery, in Antwerp. The exhibition was curated by Eric Kindel and Fred Smeijers and focused on history and evolution of Stencil type.

Standing Type is available in basic Latin character set and in OTF CFF, TTF, WOFF, and WOFF2 formats.
