ABOUT







Louis Oppenheim

Type and graphic designer and painter who was born in 1879 in Coburg and died in 1936 in Berlin. After studies in London (1899-1906), he worked as a freelance designer in Berlin from 1910 onwards.

Creator of Fanfare (1927, Berthold; now available at URW), an extra bold hookish lineale. He also made Lo-Type (1913, which was revived in 1980 by Erik Spiekermann for Berthold). [Bernhard Bold Condensed (1912, Lucian Bernhard) is very similar.]

Fanfare Recu was revived by Rod McDonald in 1993 as Stylus. Canada Type then worked some more on it and published Louis (2012, Kevin King and Patrick Griffin). Check also Ohio Bold (2012, Gert Wiescher).

In 1928-1929, he designed the condensed titling typeface Flamingo. Flamingo Licht is an inline version. Flamingo was carefully revived as a free font by Mario Arturo in 2015.

Images: Lo in woodtype (1912), Lo Kursiv (1912).
