“My love for type design started about 15 years ago. I was playing around on my first MAC with a very early version of Quark Xpress. While I was doing that I kept wondering what it would be like to set a piece of text in my very own font. That’s how my first font family Delicious came to see the light. Every Friday (and most weekends) I dedicate my time to type design. Every typeface I worked on was a great journey where I could really lose myself in the creative process and for me, that’s what counts the most.”

JOS BUIVENGA

MUSEO SEOMU OMUSE “Museo was conceived out of the love for one letter form. In some kind of daydream I saw before me the letter ‘U’ with the endings bent. So it really started with my love for the letter ‘U’...


300 500 700

This uppercase letter just came to me as an image in a daydream. The top of both stems bent into semi-slab serifs. From this principle I worked out the rest of the uppercase letters. My first intention was to make it an all-caps display font, but after a while, I changed my mind. I wanted it to be a bit more versatile, so I decided to add lowercase and adjust spacing and kerning to increase legibility.” This OpenType font family comes in five weights (3 are free), and each weight comes with support for CE languages, even Esperanto. Besides ligatures, contextual alternatives, stylistic alternates, fractions and proportional/tabular figures, Museo has a ‘case’ feature for case-sensitive forms.

one of the TOP FONTS OF 2008,

MUSEO Nothing prepared us for the phenomenal success of Museo and Museo Sans, the year’s top geometric display fonts. When introducing Museo, a clean yet unconventional semi-serif, designer Jos Buivenga got everyone’s attention by offering three out of the five styles for free. On the strength of the paid weights alone, Museo made it to the top of our list of hot new fonts. When its

sans-serif companion was launched some months later, again with part of the family offered at no cost, it smoothly sailed to the top spot as well. Both typefaces are lucid and versatile, great for cool-looking headlines but also very effective in medium-sized texts. As a bonus, we couldn’t resist giving the Museo pair an extra-special award for the year’s best marketing strategy.
