Designed by Dariusz Nowak-Nova in 1994, NoweAteny is a frantic handwriting font whose capital letters include technical-looking grid lines and end points. These seem to anchor the letters without reducing their volatility. The font consciously lacks elements that increase legibility, sacrificing them for the sake of more design-oriented ideals. NoweAteny is thus good for headlines in larger point sizes, especially when the look of the text is as important as its content.
Linotype Nowe Ateny is part of the TakeType Library, which features the winners of Linotype’s International Digital Type Design Contest from 1994 to 1997.
