Over the last two years Nokia Pure typeface has gone from strength to strength. Its unprecedented global reach earned it the prestigious 'Design of the Year' award from Design Museum in London - recognising the Nokia brand reach not just in Latin, but also Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Arabic, Armenian, Ethiopic, Devanagari, Malayam, Tamil, Kannada, Telugu, Gurmukhi, Gujarati, Bengali, Oriya, Sinhalese, Thai, Khmer and Chinese.
"Having explored the wonders of Earth, the next logical step for Nokia Pure is to reach out, making Nokia the most local brand in the universe", says Aapo Bovellan, Director of Category Marketing at Nokia. "Klingon is the first step on this journey."
"This particular script posed significant challenges as clearly our experts are resident in a very distant location. Not only did we have to research the design of the Klingon font, but we also needed to develop real-life communication devices to far-flung star systems and deal with some significant cultural differences. We see intergalactic applications as perhaps the final frontier for our fonts and Nokia's expertise in mobile communication was key to this. We're pleased to have been a part of this exciting project", said Bruno Maag, Creative & Managing Director of Dalton Maag, the type foundry creating Nokia Pure with Nokia.
Nokia Pure Klingon is immediately available for download for free, for anyone wanting to reach out.
