ABOUT







Georg Trump

A giant of German type design, b. Brettheim, 1896, d. München, 1985. Active with Berthold in Berlin from 1930-1935, and with C.E. Weber in Stuttgart from 1937 onwards. From 1934 until 1953, he succeeded Paul Renner as the Director of the Meisterschule für Deutschlands Buchdrucker in München. In 1982 he was awarded the TDC Medal. Ph. Luidl and G.G. Lange published "Hommage für Georg Trump" in 1981. Linotype link. FontShop link. His production:

  • At C.E. Weber: Mauritius (1967: his last typeface; revived in 2013 by Canada Type as Mauritius), Amati (1951, a narrow didone typeface with short ascenders and descenders; see Amati Pro (2010, Ralph M. Unger) and Amati AR (2011, Ari Rafaeli)), Codex (1954-1955; a calligraphic face; digital version by Linotype; see also Bitstream's Calligraphic 421), Delphin1 (1951), Delphin2 (1955), Forum I (1948, a 3d chiseled face: a digital version from 2007 by ARS Type is called Forum I-AR), Forum II (1952, also digitized by AR Types), Jaguar (1964-1965, a fun script with a wild African look, revived in 2004 at Canada Type as Tiger Script and again in 2010 as Trump Script), Palomba (1954-1955, an angular calligraphic script; revived by Ari Rafaeli in 2011 as Palomba AR and by Canada Type in 2004 as Ali Baba), Signum (1955, revided by Patrick Griffin at Canada Type in 2005 as Trump Gothic West; revived by Ari Rafaeli in 2011 as Signum AR, and again by Patrick Griffin in 2013 as Trump Gothic Pro and Trump Soft Pro), Time Script (+Light, +Medium, +Bold) aka Tioga Script (1956; digital versions by Linotype and SoftMaker), Trump Mediaeval (1954-1960; the Bitstream version is called Kuenstler 480; in 2010, Vladimir Yefimov and Isabella Chaeva cyrillicized the Bitstream family under the same Kuenstler 480 name at ParaType). See also Trump Mediaeval Office.
  • At Berthold: City (1930-1937: a great slab serif, ideal for athletic lettering, 1930; the mager appeared in 1937). This typeface was marketed at Berthold as City BQ and City BE. The Bitstream version seems to be called Square Slabserif 711. Other digital versions: Centrum (SoftMaker), Commerce, Cyklop (Scangraphic), Cyclop (Scangraphic). At Berthold, he also did the blackletter typeface Trump Deutsch (1935-1936). Digital versions of the latter include Trump Deutsch (2011, Ralph M. Unger) and Trump Deutsch by Klaus Burkhardt.
  • At Wagner: Schadow Antiqua (1937, a slab serif). Schadow includes mager (1937), halbfett (1938), kursiv (1942), Werk (1942), schmalfett (1945) and fett (1952). It is almost a copy of Jakob Erbar's Candida (1936). Digital revivals include one at Bitstream, also called Humanist Slabserif 707. See also S671 Slab (SoftMaker), Schadow Antique (URW) and Sheridan (SoftMaker). The most recent effort based on Scahdow is David Jonathan Ross's Gimlet (2016, 112 styles).

    He also designed Forum I (1948), Forum II (1952), Amati (1952), Signum (1955).

  • Stempel took over many German foundries. It shows these Trump fonts: Trump Mediaeval (1954-1962), Time Script (1956-1957), Trump Gravur (1960, revived in 1995 by Alan Prescott as New Trump Gravur, 2006 by Ari Rafaeli, in 2007 by ARTypes as Gravur AR, and in 2011 by Ralph M. Unger as Jobs Gravure), Jaguar (1965, a script), Mauritius (1967).
