German designer Carla Schweyer created the font in 1999. The original name was "Confidence". This font family receives the first prize at the German Kurt Christians-Foerderpreis in 1997/98. This professional typeface is available in the weights Light, Book, Regular, Medium, Bold and Black. Its interpolated weights offer a subtle differentiation in the grey levels. A special "Small" weights is available which offers a better readability in small point sizes like lexica and directories. The work has been supported by professor Jovica Veljovic. Since 2000, Carla Schweyer works as an art director for several clients and agencies.
