Ligature Inc. is the foundry of Alexander Rütten and Felix Braden (Floodfonts). Alexander and Felix met while studying communication design at the Trier University of Applied Sciences. After graduating they worked as editorial- and interface designers, art directors and developers for interactive applications. Both designed several award-winning typefaces for well-known foundries such as FontShop International, Linotype and URW+ before they found out that font- collaboration is a lot of fun! Now they work on fonts using a digital ping-pong-like process bridging the distance between Berlin and Cologne, happy to transform the solitary type design process into a close dialog about screen optimization, readability and the development of a distinct headline-character.
