EngelNewSans is an upgrade of the typeface Engel also published by Die Gestalten Verlag. The project started out by me wanting to extend the Engel character set and freshen up the typeface for the OpenType format. In the process of revisiting the original Engel I got carried away in making improvements to the individual letters and the overall look. The outcome is EngelNewSans. To me the characteristics of Engel and EngelNewSans could, perhaps very fittingly, be compared to a person showing different sides of his or her personality at different stages in life. While Engel has the traits of a cool teenager with rough edges not yet fully developed, EngelNewSans takes the form of a more mature confident character, with softer, rounder, and more harmonious shapes.
