Wilhelm C. Pischner

German type designer, b. Offenbach, 1904, d. Offenbach, 1989. Creator of Neuzeit Grotesk (1928-1929, Stempel, 6 styles---leicht, mager, halbfett, fett, schmalhalbfett, schmalfett) while he worked at Stempel, where he was an apprentice from 1918-1922 and a full time employee from 1922-1940. See also Neuzeit Grotesk (URW++: the first four styles only), DIN Neuzeit (Linotype), Geometric 706 (Bitstream: the schmal styles), Peter Wiegel's free CAT Neuzeit (2012-2014), N692 Sans (SoftMaker), and Neutral Grotesk (2002, SoftMaker). In 2006, Akira Kobayashi produced Neuzeit Office (Linotype), modeled after the original sans serif family Neuzeit S, which was produced by D. Stempel AG and Linotype's design studio in 1966. Neuzeit S itself was a redesign of Pischner's DIN Neuzeit.

Minor typefaces by him include Barcarole (1939, Stempel, a shadow caps face) and Tory Gotisch (unpublished blackletter).
