TilburgsAns became the Runner-Up for the Social Innovation Award 2017.
On May 27 the new typefaces TilburgsAnsText and TilburgsAnsIcons were launched during the international design conference TYPO Berlin. Both typefaces contain the punctuation mark jè. To introduce this mark a T-shirt was designed. Jürgen Siebert, director of the TYPO showed it during his closing speech (photo on the right, © Jens Tenhaeff).
Since June 12 you can order this shirt at firstname.lastname@example.org. Two enthusiastic fans, members of the Tilburgse Open Roeivereniging directly bought one. In the upper right the board members of the Letterteken Foundation, that manages the TilburgsAns project. From left to right: Paul van der Wal, Lou Niesten and Annette Paulsen.
