Lisa Fischbach studied at the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel, where she specialised in graphic design with a clear focus towards typography. During those studies, she grew fascinated by letterforms and experimented with type and shapes. These studies were paired with an excursion into the fine arts during a semester at the University of Seville. She finished her bachelor’s with a latin typeface, Lobelia, that was nominated for the Muthesius Award.
After working in the graphic design studio Format Design Visual Identities, in Hamburg, she went to England to develop her skills in type design. During the master’s programme at the University of Reading, she was was introduced to the design of foreign script systems. Her master’s project, Kaius, speaks several languages, including Gujarati, Greek, Cyrillic, Latin and phonetic signs. It was honoured by being selected by the jury of the Pangramme International Student Type Design Exhibition.
From 2015, Lisa has worked as an independent designer in the fields of type and design.
