ABOUT







Emil Johannes (Hans) Kühne

German type designer (b. 1910, Schmiedeberg-d. 1961, Hamburg), who, after studies in Offenbach under Rudolf Koch and Ernst Engel, became a soldier in 1939. After the war, he became a freelance graphic designer in Hamburg, where he also taught at Werbefachschule Hamburg. Wolfgang Hendlmeier summarized his contributions in 1985. His typefaces include:

  • Andreas Schrift (designed in 1942). It was cut in 1948 by J. Trennert und Sohn. In 1954, it was also at Gebr. Klingspor. It was recut in 1988 by Johannes Wagner. Delbanco's digital version is called DS Andreas Schrift. Gerhard Helzel also did a digital revival.
  • Logos (1955). Digital revival by Gerhard Helzel.
  • Deutsche Musterschrift, done in 1938 for the post office (Postbereich).
  • Deutsche Versalien (1934).
  • Halbfette Offenbach (1937). Fette Offenbach was done in 1936. Digital revival by Gerhard Helzel.
  • Kühne Antiqua (1939): looks like a Basque face. Klingspor mentions the date 1954. A digital version of this was done by ARTypes in 2010, called KuehneAntiquaAR.
  • Kühne Gotisch (1938). Revival by Gerhard Helzel.
  • Kühne Schrift (1937). This blackletter also has a mager weight. Klingspor mentions the dates 1954 and 1955.
  • Stahl (1937). There are fett, schmal-halbfett and schräg versions. Digitally revived as Stahl (2007) and Stahl Kursiv (2009) by Gerhard Helzel.

Other material: Logos done by him. Brief German biography. A famous poster of the Nikolaikirche in Hamburg. Picture.
