Nivean Slab is a typeface intended for use in ski resort wayfinding systems. The name of the typeface is inspired by the word subnivean or subniveus directly translating to “under snow”. Considering the bright conditions of snowy landscapes, the typeface has open counters and apertures. Inspired by mounded snow and skier silhouettes, Nivean Slab emanates adventure, friendliness, and motion while maintaining a degree of legibility and readability. Nivean Slab features a tall x-height and medium character width for optimal legibility. A semi-bold stroke weight with mounded serifs echoes the naturally playful essence of snow and ski resorts.
