 Design Information

Typeface Designer: Anton Studer
Year of development: 2010–11

Medien (as the name says) is designed to be used on almost all media. Its basic structure fits well to the grid made by pixels but when used in printed matter you’ll not notice that fact. It is a quite unspectacular typeface which you would not recognize by reading but isn‘t that the main target of a typeface. By watching the forms of Medien you‘ll recognize some familiar stylistics to typefaces like Frutiger from Adrian Frutiger or Syntax from Hans Eduard Meier which are as well as Medien humanistic sans serif typefaces. Medien is mend to be used for all kinds of communications, specialy for corporate communications and online and printed magazines and newspapers. The Medien font family wasmade during the diploma work of the first MAS in Type design at the University of the Arts in Zurich by Anton Studer.

Medien received international design awards:

— German Design Award 2014: Nominated
— Granshan 5. International Type Design Award 2012: 2nd Prize in the Latin Text Typeface Category   
— European Design Award 2012: Bronze in the Type Design Category
— Type Directors Club Tokyo: Selected to the Annual Book 2012
