Nouveau

Nouveau is a playful Jugendstil typeface based on a modernist design. Sometimes qualified in German speaking regions as Künstler-Grotesk – ‘Artist Sans Serif'– the typeface gathers different Art Nouveau forms found in architecture, furniture or art and transposes them into one harmonizing design. The typeface is characterized by wide capitals in many variants paired to slightly condensed minuscules with a generous x-height. Five weights range from hair strokes to a robust medium. The six styles (Crocus, Dahlia, Gingko, Nenuphar, Rose, Thistle) are arranged from the most quiet to the most expressive letter­forms. A variable font assembles all styles in one and makes them accessible through a weight and an exclusive flora axis.

The fonts contain an extended Latin glyph set covering many languages and advanced OpenType features: small capitals, several figure ranges (lining, old style, small caps, tabular and proportional), superiors & inferiors, fractions, case sensitive punctuation for capitals and small capitals, ligatures and many alternates. Most of them share identical metrics, so that texts lenghts hardly change when glyphs are replaced.

Nouveau was designed by Jérôme Knebusch and Philippe Tytgat and released in 2022. It was initially created as an all-caps custom type for the École de Nancy, the Art Nouveau museum in France. It works best in bigger sizes, like headlines or shorter texts. Look up the PDF specimen below for detailed information or test out below.
