From Printed Letters to Pixels and Bezier Curves
While studying in Hamburg, the German designer Ute Harder digitized a classic typeface from Rudolf Koch – Marathon – which was originally designed in 1930.
Harder began her revival by printing all of the old metal characters from a drawer of 48 point Marathon. After Marathon had been brought into the digital realm, necessary modifications to the typeface’s design were made. The benefits of digital technology were used to improve the letter spacing capabilities. Harder’s revival, therefore, is spaced more harmonious than the metal original. The font also serves the full Standard Characterset. Characters that were not available in the old metal font had been added, corresponding to Koch’s design. Harder additionaly produced a slightly heavier book weight, allowing the digital Marathon to be used to set texts in sizes ranging from nine to 14 point (text set in larger point sizes should make use of the thinner, more graceful Marathon Display face).
“Lettering gives me the purest and greatest pleasure, and on countless occasions it has been to me what a song is to a singer…” – Rudolf Koch
