About Babetta Font Family
Babetta is a display typeface that comes with some decorative typographical features. Alongside a set of arrows and flower icons, it also includes an alternative ›E‹, some special diacritic marks, a wavy ›S‹ and a series of ligatures. It features 5 weights, a special ›Neon‹ version and supports a wide range of Latin languages. This typographical tool box provides a large and playful variety of options for headlines and logotypes. Babetta supports Latin and Cyrillic languages.
The initial inspiration for Babetta was an illuminated vintage shop sign—that of a famous bookstore in Berlin called Karl-Marx-Buchhandlung that dates back to the days of East Germany. During the course of the design process, this slightly shabby historical original was kissed by an Italian Art Deco beauty and has blossomed into a new typeface with its own special charm. The aim was not to preserve the original lettering, but to use it as a starting point for typographical exploration.
About Viktor Nübel Type Design
Viktor is a type-designer not only living and working but also born and raised in Berlin, a former divided city and now rumbling type-design hotspot. His interest in letters started with little doodles on the exercise books, to occasional graffiti actions and made it step by step to a professional type design occupation. Viktor is running the studio ›Working With Type‹. His typefaces have been published by different foundries, e.g. Monotype, and under his own lable Viktor Nübel Type Design.
