• slanted stems of M
• l with a slightly flared “foot”
• slightly bowed stems similar to serifs on the lower case characters
• slanted endings (in upright fonts) resp. rectangular endings (in italic fonts) on horizontal stems
• rounded counter in h, n, m
• some remarkable letterforms in italics
• extraordinary ligatures
• several figure variations

The slightly bowed stroke endings which nearly look like serifs are characteristic of Wendelin and lend greater legibility to the font.
The italic versions of Wendelin are based on true italics with clearly rounder detail forms and not just slanted variations of the upright form, even though a and g retain the basic form of the upright version. Also, the italic f has a descender, the e is round, and k is open and rounder as well as r.
Wendelin was the sans serif text typeface of the magazine “motion” in 1997. Godfather of the design was the Franklin Gothic, again popular at this time. Only a few versions of the 1997 Wendelin were actually achieved, so that's why…
… I revised Wendelin in order to complete the font family, as well as to bring it up to date technically with OpenType Features for ligatures and tabular figures, and in the Pro-Version with Unicode support for all European languages along with Greek, Turkish, Vietnamese and Cyrillic.
The font family consists of the upright and italic in weights from Thin to ExtraBold.
Wendelin is available in two versions: Wendelin Standard und Wendelin Pro.
Both versions include old style and tabular figures.
Both versions include standard ligatures and discretionary ligatures.
Also the antiquated long s together with ligatures and a capital ß (German double s) are available in both versions
The difference: Wendelin Standard supports only West European languages and includes no small caps. Wendelin Pro supports all West, Middle and East European languages and types including Greek, Turkish, Vietnamese and Cyrillic — and the small caps, too.
