Wiener Norm
Display font, based on Viennese street signs.
The process of font digitalisation started in 2004 with the purpose to reconstruct the original font of 1923. While working on the first drafts, the glyphs of the original font stencils - primarily designed by technicians - emerged too clumsy. So I decided to use the original font face of 1923 only as a resource for a complete redevelopment.
The new font face was adapted for modern digital type setting and the glyph range was extended.

Wiener Norm is now available as open type font and published under creative commons license.
Glyph range:
Basic Latin, Latin-1 Supplement, Latin Extended-A, Ligatures.
According to the extension of ISO/IEC 10646, the majuscule German SZ was added as standard Unicode glyph [U+1E9E].
