Delicatessen – by Marque

Author: James Braithwaite

Marque brands Delicatessen on the crossroads of SoHo and Nolita, taking a contemporary position on the traditional delicatessen’s of New York.

The typeface, a modern interpretation of the neon signage that is a prevalent feature on most of the city’s deli facades, was created specifically by German typographer Hubert Jocham and developed into a full character set for use across all materials. Materials and specifications were also chosen that had the inherent crafted qualities and detailing of traditional delicatessens, yet set in a contemporary world.
