ABOUT







Wilhelm Bilz

Type designer who worked with Ludwig&Mayer and with Francesco Simoncini in the 1950s and 1960s. With Francesco Simoncini, he created Simoncini Garamond from 1958-1961. Not the best version of Garamond in my view. Bitstream's Italian Garamond (by Bilz and Simoncini) is in the same style. The transitional typeface Life (1965) was designed by W. Bilz, and jointly developed by Ludwig&Mayer and Francesco Simoncini.
