In August 2008, we introduced Quench
®, a contemporary display family by Berlin-based Hannes von Döhren
. Since that successful release, Hannes has followed with three more items: Opal
™, which is a noble, luxury text face, and Snoogle
™ and Snoogle Dingbats
, which are contemporary display faces. Opal’s design pays respect to Renaissance serif type, yet Opal is not based on any specific predecessors. The family includes an Italic, Bold, and Script variant (Opal Script is suited for additional text emphasis, or as an alternative to Opal Italic). Snoogle is a friendly, rounded display face with many OpenType ligatures, which almost give the letters the feeling of a script face. A Dingbats font, with hard-core pictograms, complements the design.
