Boymans was originally designed in 2003 as part of the identity developed by Mevis & Van Deursen for Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam. Its primary inspiration was the typeface designed by Lance Wyman for the Olympic Games in Mexico City in 1968. Boymans responded to the identity’s need for a flexible as well as playful design. Designed in ten weights, each font has three versions: single line, double line, and triple line. By combining, layering, or coloring these versions, Boymans can generate an endless number of variations.
