ABOUT







Joost Schmidt

German typographer and painter, b. Wunsdorf (1893), d. Nüremberg (1948). He studied at Bauhaus from 1919-1925, and started working with type in 1923. From 1925 until 1932, he was a professor at Bauhaus. After the war, he became professor at the Hochschule für bildende Künste in Berlin. He created some typical Bauhaus alphabets.

Digitizations:

  • Uhertype (2008, Paulo Heitlinger) is a revival of his lettering.
  • Jose Manuel Uros) is a monoline geometric / organic family with an odd Futura Black style piano key Stencil thrown in. He writes that the inspiration came from the Bauhaus Dessau im Gewerbemuseum Basel exhibition poster, designed in 1929 by Franz Ehrlich after a sketch by Joost Schmidt, and hence the name Joost.
  • Neubau (2009, Ramiz Guseynov) is a condensed geometric display family with sans and slab serif subfamilies, which took inspiration from Joost Schmidt's lowercase letters developed from 1925 until 1928 at Bauhaus Dessau. Neubau Grotesque (2010) is an elementary minimalist sans face. Neubau Serif is a slabby version---this entire family was inspired by Bauhaus proponent Joost Schmidt, 1925-1928.
  • The piano key typeface Joschmi Regular (2018, Flavia Zimbardi). An Adobe Originals font designed as part of an effort to revive Bauhaus treasures, and named after Joost Schmidt.
