Erasmusbrug25 is an architecturally inspired display font representing the Erasmus bridge in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The font was created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the bridge, taking place on the 4th of September 2021.
The various angles in the font take their origin from the bridge itself, while a bold basis combined with sharp yet subtle line-work make these letters reminiscent of the Erasmus bridge profile; thin as a needle, wide as a harp. The evocative characteristics of the font lean into the industrial nature of the city’s harbour.
Erasmusbrug25 is a gift from the city, to the city and is available for free to download below.
