Recap of Wim Crouwel's famous typeface design for Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum "Vormgevers" Poster that was published in 1968.

Maybe I will include the full uppercase letters soon as well.

for now,



Original typeface design by Wim Crouwel.

Comment by Sed4tives 23rd July 2018

oh I just noticed someone else here on FontStruct sort of made

a recap of this as well.  (which I obviously didn't copy)

Yet still is worth mentioning and can be found here:

steadelijk by Craig Wills (delicraig)

But instead of duplicating the original work that was designed

by Wim Crouwel himself, Craig seemed to have made a copy of

Architype Stedelijk (another recap of the famous typeface)

but, which (I think) actually was made by The Foundry.

I have exclusively used the original 1968 poster design as the source for my recap. (image bellow) 

Overal mine looks very similar to Craig's attempt apart from

three major differences,

FIRST - Mine uses a negative (-0,75) letter spacing. (to mimic the original more accuratly).

SECOND- The curved right triangles and rounded corners in my version have a smaller radius.

LAST - I have a much more complete character set and some of the glyphs are slightly different.

It;s a very solid design Wim delivered. So did you enjoy the exhibit in Japan?

This is what a remake really is

@Sed4tives - While the FontStruct search function is broken at the moment, here are my second versions (certainly more accurate than my first attempts):

Getting Away With It 2 - Kerned

Getting Away With It 2

These are based on the lettering from Electronic's eponymous album from 1991, which was my first introduction to this wonderful typeface.  Electronic was formed as a side project by Bernard Sumner of "New Order" and Johnny Marr of "The Smiths".

My first versions consisted of only the square block, instead using filters to simulate the curves:

Getting Away With It - Kerned

Getting Away With It

@ Goatmeal I check them all, well done ofcourse,

I appreciate the slightly different approach u made on some of the glyphs while  I was cross-referencing them with mine.

ztedelijk-Crouwel, my own version of this mitic alphabet, inspired by the seminal Stedelijk Museum poster from the great Wim Crouwel (and similar other fonts, I like specially igorrossi's "Crouwel's Stedelijk Alphabeth". A tribute to all the Typographers.

You can use some of my UC or numbers or other shapes, if you want, of course.

Comment by elmoyenique 25th July 2018

BTW, a lot of us here we loved the Crouwel works, I see.

Comment by elmoyenique 25th July 2018

Sorry. Change "some" for "any", please.
