Milieu Grotesque

Milieu Grotesque was originally founded by graphic and type designers Timo Gaessner and Alexander Colby in 2010. Their focus lies in providing versatile, system-oriented typefaces that offer the highest degree of design flexibility and result in a small but fine library. Milieu Grotesque fonts have joined Monotype and are now available on Monotype Fonts. 

Milieu Grotesque

Milieu Grotesque began as a type platform for designers. Under Timo Gaessner and Maiko Gubler’s direction, the business grew into a highly regarded foundry with a reputation for creating enduring and elegant type.

Type Designer

Timo Gaessner

Timo Gaessner, a Lisbon-based graphic and type designer, studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. In 2002 he founded 123buero, a Berlin-based graphic design studio primarily focused on printed matter, identity programs, exhibitions, and type design. 

In 2010 he established the digital type foundry Milieu Grotesque, through which all recently developed typefaces have been distributed exclusively. Milieu Grotesque has been acquired by Monotype in 2023.

Timo has lectured and held workshops internationally, at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (National School of Fine Arts) in Paris and the Hochschule für Künste (University of the Arts) in Bremen, amongst others. From 2011 to 2013, he has been a visiting lecturer at the Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung (University of Arts and Design) in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Milieu Grotesque fonts are included in Monotype Fonts.
