Wiener Norm Font


About eighty years after the municipality of Vienna determined the appearance of the city's street signs, I started the initial work for the digitalization of the Wiener Norm. After the first drafts it became clear that a simple vectorization of the original drawings from 1923 would not result in a harmonious typeface. Wiener Norm was adapted to the modern requirements of electronic typesetting, greatly expanded in character range. Wiener Norm is designed as a display font and is therefore best suited for large type sizes.
