The most popular fonts used by designers There are usually two camps among designers when it comes to typeface choices. One group has a handful of favorite typefaces they adapt to every design they create, believing that these handful of typefaces can be suitable for every situation.

A dual-sided poster distributed guerilla-style throughout all of the New York City boroughs helped launch Glass Shop – and once on the premises, clientele are discretely greeted with collateral, messaging and environmental design that strive to represent the retailer’s perspective and values. △The Smiler Role: Designer, Illustrator - Creative Director / Adam Berninger The collateral material for this independent publication conveys its deep roots in the alternative art world. △Matthieu K. www.michaelfreimuth.com
Amsterdam Metropolitian Area The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (AMA), in the very heart of Europe, attracts people and orga- nisations from around the world. For centuries Amsterdam has been a hub for world trade. In the years to come, the local authorities will make a joint and critical effort to promote the more intensive use of their territories. AMAX has been realised because of the the contributions by Amsterdam Partners, Schiphol Group (Schiphol Real Estate), Province of Noord-Holland, SADC and local authorities Amsterdam (DRO, EZ and OGA), Almere, Amstelveen, Haarlemmermeer, Port of Amsterdam, Zaanstreek, Chamber of Commerce Amsterdam and Zuidas. To give international investors and companies a better opportunity to get to know about all the possibilities of the area, a unique experience was created.
