The identities of 13 ministries and about 175 departments of the Dutch government are being redesigned into one single identity by Studio Dumbar in 2008-2010. Together with this operation a typeface family has been designed to play an essential role in this new identity. In about nine months from the start, the core of a font family had to be ready for use. Rijksoverheid Serif for logo’s and text, Rijksoverheid Sans for headings. Later, at the end of 2009, based on new insights, a text version of the Sans was designed plus additional Greek glyphset for all the fonts. In January 2013 the latest addition to the type family has been delivered. This presentation shows this process in word and image.
