The Bauhaus Archive in Berlin is one of my favourite places. I like drinking there a coffee, and sketching ideas on the terrace, while thinking on what does ‘functional’ mean. After the first TypoLabs conference I visited again the museum, with a lot of ideas after those inspirational days. On the exhibition there was a Tapetenmusterbuch (facing paper specimen) from the early 1930’s. I fell in love immediately with the letter ‘a’ on the cover and wanted to redraw it and adapt to my language.

From this letter I created the whole alphabet (usually I start with an ‘n’ and a ‘p’ character). The letters are clean, but they have a small unusual feature: the countershapes of the rounded letters (b, d, g, p, q) have a small vertical straight part, which is large enough to be visible in bigger point size, but small enough to create a rounded form in smaller sizes. To help the constructed, grid-based graphic design the Thin lowercase stems are 50% of the Bold stems, you find the same proportion between the Light and Black characters too.

The typeface contains alternate characters for a more geometric style, like the single-storey ‘a’ or the ‘E, F’ with optically same arm length and the simpler 4 and 7 figures. The typeface has 5 widths from Thin to Black in two weights: Normal and Wide. The wide styles are easy to combine with the regular ones, perfect to highlight information, or for an eye-catching typography. All the letters reflect to the heritage of the Bauhaus, they are clean and concrete. I made all the characters as functional as possible.

Laslo was named after the most famous Hungarian designer from the Bauhaus: László Moholy-Nagy, and was released on his 123rd birthday. Happy birthday László, I hope, you would like it!
