Ingrid Liche began designing Liant Medium in 1976 for the packaging of the natural cosmetic company Weleda AG in Germany. Since then the typeface has defined the corporate identity of Weleda worldwide, and because of this company’s prestige, the look to the entire natural cosmetic and biologically oriented industry. Because of a change in artistic direction in 1994, the mother company in Switzerland decided to introduce a new house face; thereby giving up the brand recognition that had been established over twenty years. Since Liche still owned the rights to Liant, she decided to distribute the face exclusively via FontFont as FF Liant. She re-digitized the design, adding several ligatures and expanding the face to three weights. The most prominent characteristic of the design is its lively lines, the forms for which are taken from nature. Within the individual characters there is an exchange of sinking and rising points, connected by taut curves.
