Orchidee was created as a part of the business stationary of the restaurant Orchidee located in the luxory hotel Quellenhof in Aachen, Germany. After the founding of the restaurant the hotel manager realized that there earlier was a bordello in the city with the same name, so he wanted to change the name. At the time when our agency had to presentate the logotype the name was not appointed so I created the font.

The restaurant was specialized on crosscultural european-asian cuisine. Because of that I wanted to mix up some elements of traditional asian typography with european typography. The letters are designed in freehand by the repetition of just a few basic elements. To create the rough outline I used xerox-copier because I wanted to have some chaotic elements to give the font a handmade touch.

You can copy and give it away to your friends as long as the font-info-file is included with the postscript or true type data.

I am looking forward to your comments, suggestions and to any information if/how you incorporated this font.
