Giacometti Pi


I was not happy with the idea that a digital font, especially a Lintotype font, could disappear: given the ever-expanding nature of the digital universe it seemed counter-intuitive. So, spurred along by an email from my friend, I discovered that, instead of disappearing, Giacometti has expanded. GiacomettiLL has become Giacometti Pi and is now accompanied by Giacometti Letter, with an impressive 425-strong character set that includes fractions and symbols. The fonts were designed by German illustrator Sine Bergmann, who also designed Linotype Festtagsfont (more stick figures, this time with a festive theme, as the name suggests), and Jump (with Leonore Poth), an informal handwritten script.
