VLNL Tp Martini™

Our Chef Martin Lorenz likes to mix cool and fresh cocktails - shaken, not stirred! You have to taste this great Martini cocktail or mix it yourself! Cocktail Master Martin tells his special recipe:


“The TpMartini refers esthetically to typefaces drawn with a pointed nib as the Bodoni or Didot, but with the clear distinction that it is obviously constructed by modules.


The visual system for the TpMartin is based on a square 5x9-unit grid and three different basic forms with which the font and other elements are designed. The basic forms consist of a straight line and circles of two different sizes. The line can be extended, but the circles retain their related proportions."

VLNL Tp Kurier™

VetteLetters is proud to bring you the TpKurier-family, cooked by our German chef, who lives in the lovely Barcelona, Martin Lorenz! Chef Lorenz about the TpKurier recipe:


“The TpKurier is the second redesign we did of the Courier. The first redesign from the year 2000 was tutorized by Petr van Blokland and Peter Verheul at the Royal Academy of Arts (Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten / KABK) and even though it was based upon a five-unit grid, it was drawn by hand. Six years later we designed a grid for another version of the Courier, the TpKurier family was born. This version is completely constructed until its last detail. We didn't want to correct the “mistakes” deriving from the use of the grid, but instead make them visible (see “S”).


The TpKurier is based on a very simple grid, composed a proportion of four units high by two units wide. A series of other links between them make it possible to form a font from this grid. We felt it was important to consistently work within these limitations so that any unexpected asperities would help provide the font with its character. Even though it is a rough constructed typeface it was important to us to design real italic lower case letters and not just a sloped roman (see “a”, “g” or “s”). The first family published contained a serif and sans-serif version of the TpKurier, with italic and bold.”

VLNL DBXLZX

DBXLZX was inspired by the ZX Spectrum 8-bit home computer, released in 1980 by Sinclair Research. For many designers the 8-bit pixel grid of the ZX Spectrum was one of the first steps into the realm of digital design. DBXLZX was initially developed by DBXL into a three weight family for use on the Armind record label of world famous trance deejay Armin van Buuren.
