The favorite fonts of the designer Felix Bonge
In a Linotype.com exclusive, Felix Bonge presents below his favorite fonts and explains why and how he uses them.
Felix Bonge: “What are my favorite fonts?”That’s a hard question to answer. I’m not the Vignelli-type who sticks to a handful of typefaces, using it over and over. I’m working more project-oriented. Finding the font that fits best feels like a better approach to me. Nonetheless there are dozens of typefaces I like to use or appreciate for their outstanding design. This is my small selection from the Linotype catalogue.
There are certainly more pleasing interpretations‚ like Garamond Premier or even the Stempel version but this one brings an organic‚ unpolished directness to the page‚ an appropriate sinister mood and I like it for that. It’s the right font in the right place and it reads great. I’m glad Garamond #3 was there to tell me all those fantastic stories.
