    form, The European Design Magazine, issue 196, Typography Special ‘Type is Our Topic’ May/June 2004 In March 2004 the editor in chief of form magazine, Gerrit Terstiege, invited Neubau to contribute a typeface and a poster for the magazines’ upcoming typography issue. For the poster Gerrit selected the topic ‘form is content’ and asked Stefan to develop something related to Stefans’ country of origin — Austria. Back in 2004 another (Ex–)Austrian just became popular (again) for being elected as govenor of California — Ex–Mr. Universe and Ex–Terminator — Arnold Schwarzenegger. With the given topic and ‘Mr. Universe’ in mind the poster was an easy fix showing a drawing of Schwarzenegger in his original ‘best form’. The boldly shaped geometric typeface NB-Form™ which had to be developed over night as a special give-away for the magazines’ readers ended up being also used by forms’ own design team for their editorial and main headlines of the issue.
