Recent stops and talks have taken place at the University of Reading, LCC, and at the RCA. The distinguished archives and collections of the Reading Department of Typography & Graphic Communication surpassed all expectations, and, the fantastic views of London from RCA’s studio spaces are nonpareil.

Florian Hardwig is in love with Axia’s ‘n’! He characterizes the arche’s zenith “refreshingly reckless”. Axia is praised for its “modernist” feel with many foreseeable applications. The accompanying Axia Stencil weights challenge analogue placements of bridges and visually play with gaps that are after all superfluous in digital type. We are simply delighted about Axia’s inclusion in Typographica’s Favorite Typefaces of 2012!
After delivering a lecture at the Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin, Sibylle Hagmann also had the pleasure of leading a workshop for the school’s Communication Graphique students at the invitation of faculty member Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié.

Axia is a robust Sans Serif of concise letter forms with ten weights, published just before the end of 2012. The family’s main feature is comprised of harmonized line width of each, the Roman and Italic weights. Text set in Light or Black results in the same fit. Two Stencil Display weights with a unique aesthetic and perfect for captivating type sizes add further distinctive typographic options
Sibylle Hagmann was invited by the Typoclub of the Bern University of the Arts to lecture and hold a workshop with students. Fellow designers and faculty members Mika Mischler, Hansjakob Fehr, and Christoph Stähli Weisbrod provided a wonderful environment to create amazing work. The last day of the workshop was further marked by the first snowfall of the season.
