=C2=BBYanone Kaffeesatz=C2=AB was first published in 2004 and is my first e=
finished typeface. Its Bold is reminiscent of 1920s coffee house
typography, while the rather thin fonts bridge the gap to present
times. Lacking self confidence and knowledge about the type scene I
decided to publish the family for free under a Creative Commons
License. A decision that should turn out one of the best I ever made. It
has been downloaded over 100,000 times to date from this website alone,
and you can witness Kaffeesatz use on German fresh-water gyms, Dubai
mall promos and New Zealand McDonald=E2=80=99s ads. And of course on coffee=
foodstuff packaging and caf=C3=A9 design around the globe.
In 2010 I decided to re-release the typeface under the SIL Open Font
License to make it possible to include in software bundles or web font
services like Google=E2=80=99s Font Directory.
