Greenaway Mignonettes

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

1 font from $29.50
Greenaway Mignonettes Greenaway Mignonettes

Kate Greenaway was a very famous British (1846-1901) author and illustrator of childrens books. Her books were an outstanding success in English publishing during the Victorian period. Recently I found these sweet Mignonettes in an old foundry specimen book. Mignonettes is derived from the French word “mignon” which stands for lovely, charming, sweet, delightful, pleasant and that does exactly describe these little drawings. I already published a Kate Greenaway’s Alphabet a couple of years ago. So here is my second installment.

Cassandra Plus

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

5 fonts from $49.50
Cassandra Plus Cassandra Plus

Cassandra Plus is my revised version of Cassandra, it can now be used all over Europe except Greece and Russia. I changed the weights a bit to make them more distinct. The Font has two widths of letters, wide Capitals on the (shift) uppercase-keys and narrow ones on the (no shift) lowercase-keys. You can match them as you like, but you should avoid having the same letter in one word in two different widths. But if yoyu are really daring you can use one narrow S and a wide one, it might still look good. It will almost always look good! Cassandra is my “bow” to Adolphe Mouron Cassandre.

Glass Light

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

7 fonts from $24.50
Glass Light Glass Light

Glass Light was designed in 1912 by Franz Paul Glass for the Genzsch & Heyse foundry. The font is stylewise related to the “Lo types” of the same period. Glass designed a lot of decorative elements to go along with the font. I added Swashes, endletters and smallcaps to the set to make it complete. Since this type of font will probably not be used by many professionals, I did not put all the letters into one big OTF-version since most people don't have OTF-savy software. These fonts can and should be mixed for optimal results. Your decorative designer Gert Wiescher

Cannonball

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

1 font from $19.50
Cannonball Cannonball

Cannonball is derived from a Jazz record-sleeve for Cannonball Adderley. I think it is from the sixties or seventies of last century. The type is very typical for that time and I tried to be as true to the original design as possible. I had to add lots of letters, cyphers and other parts of the font with intuition. There are upper-case letters only, on the lowercase keys I put some embellishing swings to go along with the design. I hope you like it. The folks at »What the font« told me that the name of the original font is called »Motter Ombra« by Othmar Motter (pre-1980), too bad I did not know that, it would have saved me the work of doing this font. But they also tell me, that mine is quite different to the original, so I just keep it up for sale anyway.

Amaro Block

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

2 fonts from $29.50
Amaro Block Amaro Block

Amaro Block is another decorative addition to my Amaro font family. Yes the font can be mixed with all Amaro fonts. The Amaro Mask Block is to be used as an underlay to the normal Amaro Block; this gives you the possibility to create a two-colored font. Just type your copy in Mask, tint it in one color and then place a copy over it in Block and tint that one in a different color. And – oh wonder – you have created your two-color font.

Dyane

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

1 font from $39.50
Dyane Dyane

Dyane is based on monolinear scripts from the Bauhaus time. But it is very special for ist counterstrokes in the lowercase letters a, h, m and n that gives the script a very distinct rhythm.

Your rhythmic type-designer Gert Wiescher

Fat Times

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

1 font from $39.50
Fat Times Fat Times

FatTimes is an extension to my HardTimes family. Times are too hard for boring typefaces, so try the fat one one for a change.

Copperplate Wide

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

5 fonts from $39.50
Copperplate Wide Copperplate Wide

Copperplate Wide is remotely based on the traditional Copperplate typeface that can be seen on many business cards. I have completely redrawn the typeface in a much wider version and without those stubby little serifs. In the place of the lowercase letters I put a very slim version of the font to give you more options. You can either use the wide letters or the narrow ones – or – you can mix both to get something completely new. It works great!

Flipflop™

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

2 fonts from $39.50
Flipflop™ Flipflop™

This font makes the impression to be a blackletter font (Fraktur) but it really only is little squares and triangles stuck together in a flip or flop way to form the glyphs. Only a few times did I have to leave this system – like for the degree or brève glyphs. In order to make this experiment somehow useful, I added a set with swings on the capitals. I think it all looks very good and can easily be used like a blackletter.

Kaos

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

1 font from $39.50
Kaos Kaos

On a huge garbage bin in Lisbon I saw the sentence, “Perdidos no kaos”, which means lost in chaos and I really liked the rough stenciled lettering. Back home I designed a typeface that wasn't quite as chaotic as the lettering on the garbage container.

Bombelli Light Hand

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

1 font from $39.50
Bombelli Light Hand Bombelli Light Hand

Bombelli is a font that looks like it has been handwritten by a meticulous architect in one of those hand-drawn blueprints of the old days. I chose the name to honor one of my ex-bosses -- a graphic designer-architect who taught me a lot of things when I was young and needed the money. One of the things he taught me – and probably the most important one – was to always be on time in the morning. He never said a word about me being late, but it worked. He taught me about being meticulous in detail and many other things I only appreciated much later. This clear and straightforward font deserves bearing his name.

Schoolblock

1 font from $39.50

Breathless

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

4 fonts from $39.50
Breathless Breathless

Breathless was inspired by movie posters of the Nouvelle Vague era when Jean Seberg and Jean-Paul Belmondo were young and films where in black and white. So I named this very spiky affair after that phantastic movie of my youth A bout des souffle or like it was called in English, Breathless.

1 font from $39.50
Bacterio Bacterio

Bacterio is a typeface I designed for this hulk of a friend of mine who is a kitchen designer. He is huge but has a very delicate feeling for form. One day he said he was trying out something new and if I couldn't make a font for him. Then he showed me the surface design, a hard-plastic covered multilayered wood. The surface design was called “Bacteria” and it looked just like that, only in multicolors.

Lunix

Lunix Lunix

The basic idea behind Lunix was a half-moon-serif. Hence the name that is derived from “Luna” the ancient greek goddess of the moon.

The serifs pretty soon developed their own life and started to grow and curl. Now all of a sudden the font became a very spiky affair.
