Volcano Type

Volcano Type is a independent font foundry based in Karlsruhe, Germany.

The first course: a fast food youthfulness that was served for the first time in 1996. An earthy dish, created by chance, with thirteen organic fonts. Quickly whisked up and devoured. It rarely took more than a few days from sketch to use/digestion by the project. Uncouth forms, erupted from the bowels of the earth. Shattered letters, branded, stressed, humiliated. In order to produce arrogant fonts, far too expressive to last on a page of copy text. Quite indisputably from nature. Still roughly hewn. Raw. Imperfect.

The second course formed a strong contrast: tight concept, linear work, disciplined preparation. In most cases the font was formed by a matrix. Digital cool, sober, reduced. Plenty of free scope, like chess: the board is always the same, the moves always different. Classic openings are followed by unfamiliar variants. Competitive games. Finely nuanced movements. Carefully thought out, one masterminded brainchild after another.

Dessert: mathematical severity is rounded off and smoothed down. Fonts between digital and analogue. Straightened rivers - the surfaces of our times.
