German designer Dieter Hofrichter started his foundry in 2010. Since then, he has remained focused on developing text fonts that integrate the rich history and tradition of typography with contemporary styles.
Based in Munich, his first typeface on MyFonts was Impara, a sans serif with lively stroke ductus and distinct humanistic characteristics that is a representation of linear coolness and classic elegance. Since his debut, he has continued to produce beautiful, high quality serif faces. Capita, one of the foundry’s best sellers, is a self-dominated face with a fresh style that avoids the harshness of many slab serifs. Dieter has also seen success with one of his most recent designs, Mangan, a text face that combines classical rationality with contemporary design.
“One of our intentions is to utilize the knowledge of the history of type to create contemporary types,” Dieter says. “Style consciousness and many years of experience in type design are our qualifications for producing functional and usable types of high quality.”
