The PTL Speech family is based on Ole Schäfer's tv
typeface he has done for the WDR tv station in 2003.
The typefaces have been re-worked and extended
so they are now available as ptl Speech family,
containing Book, Medium and Bold as well as Small
Caps, Italics, Italic Small Caps, Expert Sets and
several figure sets. Because of its sturdiness and
modest appearance it is not only suitable for use
on television but also in print media. The typeface is
very readable and combines well with images. We
are planning to extend the family by a condensed
version. The main concept of tv type has been
developped together with Chris Rehberger at
Double Standards, Berlin.
