BOTW – Maarten van ‘t Wout

The behancer of the week is Maarten van ‘t Wout. He’s a  young designer based in Netherlands who founded in 2011 his own studio: Alumia. His minimalistic but creative work struck me on Behance, especially the fonts he has created. In this post I’ll just focus on typography, although Maarten is also good at classic design. I’ve been really impressed by the Alpine Typeface and the way he easily plays with types.

Alpine Typeface

Alpine is an uppercase display typeface influenced by both Swiss and Native typography. This typeface comes with three different alphabets. One that is clean and two alternatives which can be used alongside the regular alphabet. All in three different weights; light, regular and bold. Due to the alternative alphabets, Alpine gives the user more possibilities to create unique designs. Alpine Typeface is perfect for usage in posters, headlines, logo design or any artwork you like.


Orbit Typeface

Orbit is an experimental, futuristic display typeface based on two circles. These two circles became the orbits on which the type is build, hence the name. Due to the shape of the letters, the font is best suited for posters, headlines or artwork design.
