Font Dudok Hilversum

Architect Willem Marinus Dudok worked in Hilversum and he designed his own lettering as well. For the new City Hall het made a font that was based on one of the fonts made by Frak Lloyd Wright from the USA. Only some fragments remain of this lettering throughout the building.
My daughter Marieke found out that other samples of this font could be found on plaques on both sides of the railway tunnel in Hilversum. I used those letters to recreate the font.

The work took a couple of weeks, but I get the impression that the font is now almost ready. Here is a sample of the font:

If you're interested, the font may be downloaded from my website.
