Saffron and Dalton Maag win a Joseph Binder Award

20 Nov 2020

For our client City of Vienna, Saffron co-created the Wiener Melange typeface in collaboration with type foundry Dalton Maag in just four months.

Inspired by the curves of the city's emblematic shield and named in tribute to the classic Viennese coffee, the typeface was launched in April 2019. It is both clean and mature enough to support the daily work of the city government, but also embodies perfectly the diversity and humanity of Vienna and its residents.

Today we’re delighted to announce that the Wiener Melange has won a Silver Joseph Binder Award for Typography from Design Austria.
