We asked the Swiss design legends Büro Destruct to develop a font – inspired by the edding 850 permanent marker, while we created a much-noticed documentary about it. The documentary referred to the dedicated download site and thereby started the distribution of the font. Once you’ve written something in the collaborative text editor you can download the font – and use the edding 850 on your computer.
On the website people could not only download the font. The site was also a gallery for all kinds of artwork that users created with the font. Here are some examples:
Even the Jetzt Magazin of the Süddeutsche Zeitung used the font for an article. The Project appeared just in the right kind of forums and blogs worldwide.
