Font – Schöneberg

About This Project

I created a typeface design on the basis of different, in TypeCooker generated, factors. The lettering specialist Martina Flor helped me to develop it. In the following year, I digitalized the letters by using the font editing program glyphs.

 

In 2016 I decided to start from the beginning and develop the regular typeface first. I got help from the type master Lucas de Groot who had invited me to visit his class at FH Potsdam. In the advanced course I expanded it to 470 glyphs. I repeated the course to create the heavy version, which has to be further extended. Before the two typefaces should be interpolated and the italic generated. The upright forms have already features of an italic. That was the idea.

 

I called the type font Schöneberg, because I live there. It’s beautiful and a bit edgy.
