Arnhem isn’t an ornate or decorative typeface. It is robust, strong and confident which is something I tried my best to emulate throughout this project. Its creator Fred Smeijers is one of the typographic greats so I approached this task with a sense of rigour.

Like many of the most enduring modern text typefaces, Arnhem addresses the past in an intelligent way while making a contribution very much of its own time, because of this I utilised traditional typographic practice with a touch of contemporary thought. Arnhem also has a really interesting origin story which became the inspiration for some of the example textual content.
