I recently had a look at my music collection and rediscovered these letters.

3 fonts from $39.50
Geometa Rounded Deco Geometa Rounded Deco

Geometa is based on Paul Renners Futura Classic, the one that he designed before he had to soften it to make it more appealing to the broad public. I thought the normal rounded fonts needed a decorative sister. Here they are!

Grandcafe was inspired by neon lettering dating back to the fifties. The glasstubes made long loops neccessary so a whole set of new typefaces in neon-tubing developed. My version has a very elegant touch to it. I enjoyed doing this one.

Purissima Bold is the decorated extension to my Pura family. I only offer all 5 cuts together but for a very advantageous price.

The Boldcut has no embellishments. The A and B cuts are two fully embellished sets. The C and D cuts only have embellished initials, but those are driven to extremes. All five cuts can – and should be mixed. But please don't overdo it!

Bodoni Classic Ultra Bodoni Classic Ultra

Bodoni Classic Ultra is my really fat, high contrast extension to my ever expanding Bodoni Classic family.

The Script cut is very decorative, the italic cut can be mixed with it to give it a calmer touch.

Eloise

  |  available for Desktop and Web

1 font from $39.50
Eloise Eloise

Ever since I first designed Ellida in 2005, that elaborate script in the tradition of the 18th-century English calligrapher George Bickham and the 19th-century American calligrapher Platt Rogers Spencer, I wanted to add a very high contrast cut to the family. I finally did so. But the result looks so much different to Ellida that I had to give it another name, hence “Eloise”.

Bodoni Classic Swirls

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

1 font from $39.50
Bodoni Classic Swirls Bodoni Classic Swirls

Bodoni Classic Swirls breaks all the rules. The idea of Bodoni typefaces is no embellishments and here I go again and do another decorated set of Bodonis.

Enjoy!

Albums

1 font from $39.50

Riana

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

1 font from $39.50
Riana Riana

Riana is handwritten, scanned and then carefully worked over to keep the rough touch and the typical “fountainpen” look.

The result is a very lively, expressive font. To me it has an Existentialist touch, but don't ask me why.

Albums

1 font from $39.50

Albums

15 fonts from $99.00
LaBodoni LaBodoni

LaBodoni is my newly designed Bodoni.

After having redesigned and saved Bodoni’s Originals I thought it was about time I adapted the face to modern times. Here is what I did! The font is much more readable. It flows more evenly than the very bouncy design of Giambattista Bodoni.

QuickType

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

10 fonts from $39.50
QuickType QuickType

QuickType is a typeface I designed for demonstration purposes. I used it to
illustrate my first book about type design. It has crooked slab serifs and
looks very much like a typewriter font. But in order to make things clear I
had to overdo some curves and so QuickType turned out a very distinct
typewriter typeface. Since those days I worked on the shapes from time to
time, so it got better and I extended it to include several neccessary cuts.
Now it is a full fledged very usable font. Yours very quick Gert Wiescher.

Franklin Gothic Raw

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

9 fonts from $19.50
Franklin Gothic Raw Franklin Gothic Raw

When drawing a new font, there is a time when the final form is found – almost – but the curves are not slick and clean yet, that’s what I call the “raw” form. Raw – no sweeteners added! In this family I tried to redefine this moment in type development for the eternally beautiful “Franklin Gothic”. I call the design “Franklin Gothic Raw”, not to be confounded with “rough”.
The family can be used like any good normal typeface, you hardly see any difference to a conventionally cut “Franklin Gothic” in small sizes. The charm of the design becomes obvious the bigger it becomes, then it enhances your design with its imperfections in the outline. “Franklin Gothic Raw” is therefore an extremely versatile family. I created the cuts, that I considered necessary for the seasoned designer who knows what he’s doing. Enjoy!

Viking Initials

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

1 font from $19.50
Viking Initials Viking Initials

Viking Initials are pure brute-force blackletter initials of the time just before the Nazis started to rule, somehow these initials are typical for that period. I made one alphabeth-set with rough edges on the uppercase keys and a second set with sharp edges on the lowercase keys. For you to choose.
