Linotype Element, from designer Jan Tomas, is part of the Take Type Library, chosen from the entries of the Linotype-sponsored International Digital Type Design Contest 1999 for inclusion on the Take Type 3 CD. Like the font Linotype Alphabat from the same designer, the overall picture of Linotype Element can lead to initial confusion. The heavy forms look like someone set two typefaces over one another. Linotype Element is best for very short text, especially for headlines in large point sizes, which highlight the details of the figures. .
LINOTYPE ELEMENT™ REGULAR is also contained in the GoldEdition 2.0 DVD for Mac OS and Windows Linotype site.
