ABOUT







Werner Schneider

German scribe, type designer and calligrapher, born in Marburg in 1933 or 1935, who studied under Friedrich Poppl at the Werkkunstschule in Wiesbaden from 1954 to 1958, where he started teaching in 1959. He became a professor at the Fachhochschule Wiesbaden in 1973.

He designed Medita (1979), Sublima (1981), Schneider-Antiqua (1987, Berthold) and Schneider Libretto BQ (1995, Berthold: a didone family).

In 1988, he made "Euro Type" for the German Federal Transportation Ministry in order to optimize the legibility of and standardize transportation typefaces.

In 2002, in cooperation with Helmut Ness, this family evolved into the 22-weight and 14-dingbat signage family Linotype Vialog and Vialog LT Signs (mainly arrows), which is now used in the subway system of Munich.

In 2003, he created the Senatus family (Berthold), after Roman inscriptions.

In 2006, he designed the calligraphic family Sunetta.

In 2007, he published the text type system Satero Sans and Satero Serif at Linotype.

The Aeneas font family by Tiro Typeworks (1994) is based on his work.
