About Architype Vierkant

Architype Vierkant is part of the Crouwel collection. A set of typefaces created in close collaboration with Wim Crouwel, following his agreement with The Foundry in 1996 to create digital fonts from his experimental alphabets. Crouwel’s most recognized work was for the Van Abbe and Stedelijk museums [1954–72] where he established his reputation for radical, grid-based designs.

Architype Vierkant was developed from the few letterforms that Crouwel created for an opening spread in a 1972 Drupa catalogue, on the theme ‘typo vision international’ – this single reference showed an interesting interplay of the experimental ideas underpinning his controversial ‘new alphabet’ and Fodor.
