TJ Evolette A, geometric Sans Serif with a lot of alternate glyphs, by Timo Titzmann, Jakob Runge, runes, Art Deco Font of the Week. 37-2011


“TJ Evolette A” is experimental, fashionable and clean. The geometric constructed upper case grotesque comes along with two additional integrated extravagant stylistic sets for the whole alphabet and some astonishing special characters as well.

More on process of design → »Let’s do something chic«


The plain linear-antiqua with classical proportions offers numerous combination possibilities between the ordinary alphabet of “TJ Evolette A” and the two alternate alphabets – an interpretation of Art Déco mixed with straight lined shapes of ancient runes.

This variety encourages unusual and extroverted creation in editorial and poster design..

    Hi Jakob & Timo,

    Really nice work you have done here. The modern contemporary font you’ve created, with the classic black & white photography really works is this piece!

    I work for a big paper company in Australia & this is the kind of thing we just love to promote eco papers etc…

    If you have a spare copy please email back & we could possibly outsource some design work to you also!

    Is this not for sale anymore? Please tell me it isn’t so…

    Sorry, it’s true. Evolette is currently not available.

  26. Johannes stigphole, on

    This cannot be! Every outlet sells TJ Evolette A now say it is “no longer available”.

    Messrs.Titzmann and Runge, this is rubbish.

    TJ EVOLETTE A is a digital OTF font – so to say it is “no longer available” is rubbish.

    This font has not been lost, it is not broken. It still exists. And you both know it.

    So does everyone else.

    So why are you pretending it is “no longer available”? WTF?

    Here’s a metaphor for you. Perhaps you are familiar with Aesop’s Fables?

    Do you remember the Dog and the Horse?

    It goes like this:

    The dog that was laying on the hay jumps up, barking and baring teeth at the horse and will NOT let the horse approach.

    The horse is baffled by the dog’s behavior.

    So the horse says to the dog “Why are you barking and baring your teeth at me? Why stop me from eating this hay? There are many places for you to lay down. But this is the only hay that I have to eat. Why do you keep me from it? You cannot eat it hay you cannot drink it and you do not live here. There is no reason to be this way”

    To which the dog replies “It is true, I cannot eat or drink this hay, it is not even a good bed and I cannot honestly say I enjoy it at all. But – I can keep you from having it!”

    Timo and Jakob, please make TJ EVOLETTE A available for purchase again. I will donate to the charity of your choice if you like.

    But please don’t let the world of designers and art directors like me see the beautiful, soft and sweet smelling hay and then tell us it’s “not available anymore”. It is. We can see it. And we wonder why you are standing on it barking and baring your teeth.

    Thank you.

    Johannes Stigphole
