    Weltenburger Kloster – Anno 1050

    The Art Nouveau typeface Romic is put to good use on the labels of the entire product range of Weltenburger Kloster brewery. Both the brewery’s wordmark and the beer style are set in the typeface designed by Colin Brignall for Letraset in 1979.

      The use of Romic for the visual identity of Weltenburger Kloster goes back at least to 1984, see this series of beer coasters issued in that year:

      If you look closely, you can see that the logo here (and also on the crate pictured above) has Romic’s original two-storey g. Sometime in or before 2003, it was replaced by a single-storey form. Neither the Letraset original nor any of the digital versions seem to have such an alternate, so I assume this is a customization.
