Since there is little or no true typographic expression of the ‘Amsterdam School’ of architecture, Ramiro Espinoza always felt there was a need for fonts that expressed this particular aesthetic. Kurversbrug is a revival of the letters that spell out the names found on the bridges in Amsterdam. The original alphabet was probably designed by Anton Kurvers around 1930. Ramiro fixed many inconsistencies in the original model, completely redefined several letters, added punctuation marks, designed new weights and turned a simple alphabet into a display family suitable for posters and standing flyers.
Kurversbrug supports 111 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
