ABOUT







Bernd Möllenstädt

The designer of the well-known Formata typeface (available at Berthold), Bernd Möllenstädt was born in 1943 in Germany and died in 2013. He lived in Westfalia, Berlin and finally Munich. He studied typesetting and graphic design, and joined the Berthold type foundry in 1967. In 1968, he became the head of the type design department, and remained head until 1990. Lange was the artistic director there, and when Lange retired in 1990, Möllenstädt became type director.

He designed two strong sans font families for the Berthold Exklusiv Collection, Formata (1984) and Signata (1993). Formata, a popular sans serif face, is the corporate typeface of Postbank, Allianz, VW Skoda and Infratest Burke.

Since 1998, Möllenstädt has worked independently from his own studio in Munich, and continues his association with Berthold as an independent designer. He most recently completed small caps and fractions for Formata, and added the Euro symbol to many typefaces in the Berthold collection.

At Dalton Maag, he was responsible for SkodaSans (2000-2001), a custom font family that may be downloaded here.

In 2016, URW publised his text typeface Classica Pro, which was unfinished when Möllenstädt died in 2013. The missing styles and details were done under the guidance of Volker Schnebel.
