ABOUT







Joachim Romann

Type designer (b. 1916, Dantzig, d. 1996, Kronberg). He studied lithography from 1933-1937 in Dantzig, and typography in Offenbach until 1944. After that he was associated loosely with Gebr. Klingspor, and was a freelance graphic designer from 1948 onwards.

Romann designed fonts at Klingspor. Chief among these is Constance or Constanze (1954, a light script). Several digital revivals exist such as Stanzie JF at Veer, Constanze Pro (2012, Ralph M. Unger)), and Constanze Initialen (calligraphic; digitally revived as Constanze Initials (2010, Claude Pelletier) and as VIP (2008, Canada Type)). Other typefaces at Klingspor include Doppelmittel halbfette Constanze, Doppelmittel fette Constanze, Queen (1954, outline and decorated renaissance penmanship initials typeface revived as Jaggard (2007) by Paulo W at Intellecta Design), Variante (1951, formal script without lower case). Various typefaces remained unpublished such as Constanze fett, Constanze halbfett (1956) and Kronberg (blackletter). At the Ernst Engel Presse, he created a Schwabacher in 1940 and an Antiqua in 1941. Alternate image from Klingspor.

Revivals of his work also include Jaggard (2007), a renaissance penmanship initials typeface developed by Paulo W at Intellecta Design.
