Noordenwind is a typeface inspired by the turbulent Dutch winds, which blow in all directions simultaneously. Noordenwind starts from a simple place. There are not enough serifs in our typefaces. Why should serifs only be present in certain places? Why is it not possible to add them elsewhere? In Noordenwind, Olga combines her interests in crazy display types and clean san serifs by designing a family of 3 sans-serif display styles, 2 serif displays, and one text style.
