Logo NLF

Arthur Herrman & Jeroen Kummer

Kummer & Herrman

The Dutch Foundation for Literature supports writers and translators and brings attention to literature abroad. The fund is represented in its identity by the use of an initial. The logo reflects a personal, contemporary and international self-awareness of a (long) book tradition. In the typography a new drawn roman (Romain) and the Akzidenz Grotesk were chosen. The roman to articulate the literary side of the fund and the Akzidenz to underline the authority of the institute. The logo exists in various language variants that in some cases are also used together. This, and by fully writing out the name, reinforces the 'linguistic'.
