Right on the heels of the tremendous popularity wave that made Hollandse Mediaeval the most used Dutch typeface during the Great War years, Sjoerd H. de Roos was asked to design a 15 point type for De Zilverdistel, Jean François van Royen’s publishing company.
Belleville FY is an original 16 retro and modern fonts family, inspired at the same time by New art mouvement, graffitis, 19th century wood type, and modern slab fonts.
Each style has specific shapes and serifs which give it a special look, depending of the mood you choose. Because each of them is based on the same structure, you can easily mix them to create unique sets, offering you endless possibilities.
Belleville is well suited for logos, headlines, packaging, posters, signage and every project you want.
