Designed with a hand-chiseled feel, Blau’s sculpted characters add a refined personality to a wide range of brand, corporate, product and service applications.
Highlighting the sculpted theme, inkwell treatment variations are prevalent throughout Blau, with several key glyphs that are stenciled for increased legibility.
This sturdy, typographic workhorse shines when a slightly unorthodox typographic approach is required — a prime choice for distinctive and dynamic logotype use.
The Blau family is available in Light, Light Italic, Regular, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic.
The name Blau was chosen to celebrate the color Blue (or Blau in German, Blaauw in Dutch, Bleu French, Blå in Norwegian, Swedish & Danish, Blua in Esperanto, Blár in Icelandic) Blue is nature’s color for water, sky, mountains, and glaciers. Blue is embraced as the color of heaven and authority, denim jeans, and corporate logos. Surveys in the US and Europe show that blue is the color most commonly associated with harmony, faithfulness, confidence, distance, infinity, the imagination, and cold. In the US and European public opinion polls, it is the most popular color, chosen by both men and women as their favorite color.
Another very popular Wilton Foundry font in the “blue” family is “Cyan” and “Cyan Neue”
