Font Atlas designed by Christian Schwartz, Susana Carvalho and Kai Bernau in 2012.
Atlas was originally designed as a corporate typeface for Munich Re, one of the world’s largest reinsurance companies. This typeface deliberately avoided contemporary trends in corporate type design in favor of the clear, optimistic tone of Dutch Modernism.
The client produces hundreds of publications, reports, and other documents each year.
They required a new typeface capable of maintaining clarity in often complicated typographical situations with a suitably well-considered range of weights. The new typeface also had to be economic in setting, saving space over the previous corporate face and saving significant amounts of paper in the process.5 hearts

Two veterans took care of Woven Ancestry. Composed by Max Cooper, remixed by Lusine. How the word ‘refined’ echoes in sound.
Hip hop analog electro jazz marvel duo from Norway: Wauwatosa. I will not be satisfied until I go to a live.

Club-moody remix by Agoria of Moby’s Almost Home track, original album Innocents.
Not a big fan of Bipolar Sunshine but this remix by Kidnap Kid is just something else and house music at its best.
Super Flu – Jo Gurt (Ron Flatter Rmx) with a perfect tune for driving at night.
Fat remix by Klangkarussell of Laura Mvula, “Sing To The Moon”. Sometimes a bold base is the way to go.3 hearts
Moon Hearted view of the world.
The nuclear is the apotheosis of simulation. Yet the balance of terror is nothing more than the spectacular slope of a system of deterrence that has crept from the inside into all the cracks of daily life. The nuclear cliff-hanger only seals the trivialised system of deterrence at the heart of the media, of the inconsequential violence that reigns throughout the world, of the aleatory contrivance of every choice which is made for us.
