Salon Series 33: Adobe Hidden Treasures Revisited
In 2018, Céline Hurka and Hidetaka Yamasaki worked on interpreting historical Bauhaus alphabets as digital fonts, in the context of the “Adobe Hidden Treasures” project. Céline worked on a design called Alfarn, which is based on a hand-lettered poster by Alfred Arndt from 1923. Hide digitized a design based on a lettering sketch by Carl Marx.
After a few years, Hide and Céline took the chance to revisit these projects, and added new features and styles to these digital interpretations. In this Salon, Céline and Hide will guide us through the discoveries they made while working with original alphabets, the routes they took to ensure authenticity, and what they learned along the way.
