Melbourne ist eine Sans-Serif Schrift mit moderner Anmutung deren erste Entwürfe 2008 in Australien während eines Auslandssemesters entstanden. Intention war eine ruhige und platzsparende Grotesk zu schaffen. Melbourne wurde zunächst am Computer entworfen, dann von Hand überarbeitet und anschließend eingescannt und reingezeichnet.
Ein großer Dank geht an Professor Jovica Veljović vom Department Design der HAW Hamburg.

Die Schrift befindet sich immer noch im Entwurf. Im Moment gibt es drei Schnitte die unterschiedlich weit ausgebaut sind, ausserdem sind kursive Schnitte in Arbeit. Anregungen & Kritik sind immer willkommen!

    Es gibt auch eine ausgebaute und kommerziell nutzbare Version der »Melbourne«
    There is a complete and commercial version of “Melbourne” as well:

    Sehr schöne, moderne Schrift. Sieht professionell und aktuell aus.
    Der Bauch vom a ist noch etwas unrund. Der Schwung beim g auch, ausserdem finde ich den Einlauf in den Schwung sehr zackig.
    Insgesamt glaube ich, wird das aber eine richtig gute Type, die viel Anwendung findet.

  3. marco, am

    hey, danke fürs Lob! das g ist in der Tat ein problembär, aber ich bin dran.

  4. Stephan Baum, am

    sehr schön!
    nur beim bold schnitt stört das die ecken so sehr abgerundet werden und die binnenräume etwas zulaufen.
    sonst aber sehr angenehme optik !

  21. Jonatan, am

    Very nice, clean good looking font! But i’m from sweden, so i would like some more work at our crazy letters Åå, Ää, Öö. I also noticed that the letter “é” is left out. But really great besides that :-)

    A nice font! But it is a bit difficult to distinguish the letter ‘O’ and the digit ’0′.

  26. Gemma, am

    Nice font. Shame I can’t use it commercially.

  27. Tom, am

    Großartig. Ich bin wirklich gespannt auf die Kursivschnitte.
    Allerdings stimme ich dem Einwand zu, das die Null und das große ‘O’ ein wenig mehr Unterscheidung gebrauchen könnten.

  28. Ferdifacchin, am

    Si è proprio un bel carattere

  29. RubenBubenBa, am

    Hi! It’s cool! I’m going to use it everywhere in my personal files. Maybe the perfect extension for it will be the cyrillic letters addition.

  30. Nathan, am

    Very clean, clear and composed. I instantly liked it. Thank you.

    [...] Ein neuer, persönlicher Favorit von mir ist die Schrift des Hamburger Gestalters Marco Müller. Ein rundum gelungener Neuentwurf einer serifenlosen Type mit gerundeten Ecken, die auch noch dermaßen schön läuft, dass sie ohne Einschränkungen fließtexttauglich ist. Das gute Stück ist noch nicht ganz fertig (die schrägen Schriftschnitte fehlen noch), dafür ist sie nicht-kommerziell frei verwendbar – und eine kommerzielle Lizenz kann man mit Marco direkt aushandeln. Ich finde: Lohnt sich! Ich mag sie. [...]

  46. Denis, am

    WOW! Fantastic font!

  47. Timo, am

    Eine wunderbares Stück Typografie – danke, die Melbourne macht wirklich spaß.
    Ist es möglich die Schrift für einen kleinen kommerziellen Kunden zu erwerben?

  48. Paul-Eric, am

    Hi Marco, I absolutely love your font. My only issue is that it doesn’t have the £ symbol so I can’t use it :((((

  49. Huihui, am

    This is beautiful! I so SOOOO would buy it if I could use it commercially!
    Shame I can’t :(
    The world could be a better place with ‘Melbourne’

  50. Linda, am

    Now that I’ve seen it I can’t live without it! There isn’t another that will do. Please can I buy a license so I can use it for just one project?
    Love this font.

  53. Frank, am

    Hi Marco

    I think your font is just lovely! I would really like to use it for commercial purpose for one of my project! I have seen many people asking to purchase it for commercial use, would you be selling it anytime soon? Its such a great font it would be such a pity if only left for personal use~ ^^

  54. Tommy, am

    Hey Marko, absolutely amazing font.
    If I have one word of advise is to release a license for it.
    Some people not good enough to wait (or even ask) wont be able to contain themselves and they will be use it anyway for their porjects. trust me,
    I know, it has happened to me before.

    Keep up the great work!

  62. Rei, am

    Is it just me or the download does not work? I really like the font and would love to try and use it. THANKS.

  63. Greg Paroissien, am

    I would love to use this for a logo for a company based in Melbourne, is there anyway we can exchange money for Font (purchase) this font?

  64. Greg, am

    A lot of the accents shown do not actually work… is there a way to get everything?

  65. Ariel, am

    I hope that you eventually complete this font with a full set of italic, characters, and weights. I know that I would absolutely purchase it, and I don’t think I’m the only person who would.

  66. John, am

    Is there any way I can buy this font to use commercially, if so, how much?

  67. Luis, am

    Great Font! thanks for sharing, but really wish for commercial license.

    What a gorgeous font! After a bit of ‘stalking’ (for an assignment, mind you) I found out you studied Comm Des at RMIT (exchange?), which is what I am studying at the moment. Thought I’d let you know that I’ve been using it in my typography assignments, so I guess it’s made it’s way back there, haha.

    Eine Lizenz für kommerzielle Nutzung wäre wirklich toll.
    Ich würde sie so gern einsetzen!!!

    In the bold version, there is a lot of characters missing, like à and ç.
    Any reason why?
