America Line Font

America Line Font, since its foundation in 1901, the iconic building in the Rotterdam neighborhood Kop van Zuid, is shining where previously the Holland America Line was housed, you will now find Hotel New York. It’s a building with a tremendous history. Were glad to take you back in time with captivating memories. In 1991, catering entrepreneurs Daan van der Have, Hans Loos, and Dorine de Vos refurbished the time-vacant property into a hotel/restaurant. To honor its 25 years of existence, we celebrated this happening with a brand-new font, America Line. This served as a tribute to Wim ten Broek, the multi-talented Dutch Graphic Designer. As early as the 1930s before the Second World War, Wim ten Broek made the famous posters for the Holland-America Line. The influence of A.M. Cassandre herein is clearly recognizable. Wim ten Broek also worked for HAL with large surfaces and fixed lines in which primary colors dominate, accentuated with shadows acquired by spraying technique. He also made graphic works for, among others, the World Exhibition in New York, the Dutch railway company Werkspoor’ and the royal Dutch steel factory Hoogovens. His drawings and lettering gave me a love for the trade and naturally gave me a completely different view of fonts. Thats how I slowly but surely made my way to the trade. Based on the letters I had at my disposal from the Holland – America Line poster, I started to complete the alphabet in the same style as the original text. I digitized everything in order to acquire a usable and modern font. The Holland – America Line Font comes with uppercase and lowercase with all the needs of modern times to create a good digital font and to be able to use it for all graphic purposes. The font is ideal for headtext, posters, logos, etc. Don’t hesitate and use this unique historical font!

New York Line will be an exciting attempt for unique typography.It will give your work that glamour that you will find in a few fonts. So, enjoy the Holland America Line.
