As a designer it is always easier to stand on someone else's shoulders when it comes to typography, but what is gained from reinventing the wheel?
To answer that question we began to develop our very own standard sans-seriff, first and foremost to fill our own needs internally. Doing this proved to be both time consuming and hard, but endless print outs and redrawings later here we are with a truly usable and versatile typeface.
The first version is called Mellan book and a bold is in development.
Mellan is the first font to come out of mine and Edvin Thungrens collaboration as Aring studio.
