Antimon Bronze Chrom
*925er Sterling Silber*
Kolonia is a revival and contemporary interpretation of Deutsch-Römisch, which was originally designed by German typographer F. H. Ernst Schneidler in 1923. The oddity of Schneidler’s original text face sparked a curiosity and established the revivals approach: Maintaining the crucial characteristics and humor of Deutsch-Römisch, while bringing the typeface into the present by meeting today’s demands. Essential features of the reinterpretation are the proportions and a rather low contrast, which makes Kolonia best suitable for text applications. Playful yet quirky letterforms like the dancing g, the dagger-like seven or the questionmark refer to the calligraphic background of the original. Kolonia was designed by Dominik Bissem in 2023.
