ABOUT







Ludwig Type [Ludwig Übele]

Ludwig Übele is a Berlin-based German type designer (b. Memmingen, 1974). In 2007, he established Ludwig Type in Berlin. Ludwig practiced type design and branding in his own studio in Den Haag, The Netherlands. He graduated in 2007 from the KABK in Den Haag, the same year in which he started his foundry Ludwig Uebele (or: Ludwig Type) in Berlin. MyFonts interview. Behance link. In 2018, he joined Type Network. His award-winning typefaces:

  • The extensive serif family Marat, a winner in the TDC2 2008 competition. Its 9 styles can be bought here.
  • In 2008, he published Mokka, a subdued serif family with Zapfian influences (lower case "a"). [Do not confuse it with Mokka, Fidel Peugeot's script font from many years earlier---I wonder how Uebele got the Mokka trademark, quite impressive that oversight by the trademark office].
  • Augustin (2004). A renaissance typeface inspired by the type of Nicolas Jenson made in Venice in 1470.
  • Helsinki. A sans based on Finnish traffic signs---has a hairline weight, and a gorgeous Fat weight. Helsinki 2.0 was published in 2013. In 2014, he published the formidable free weights Helsinki XXL Black and Helsinki XXL Thin.
  • Mediana. A custom typeface based on Franklin Gothic.
  • NewTaste. Commissioned by McDonald's.
  • Walhalla (2008) is a strong and bold uncial family inspired by uncial letters of the Czech type designer Oldrich Menhardt, made in 1948.
  • Daisy (2010) is an artsy ultra-fat vogue magazine style display face, best shown in pink. It won an award at TDC2 2011.
  • FF Tundra (2010-2011, FontFont) is a narrow low-contrast small-text type family that was also awarded at TDC2 2011. It was influenced by Carl Dair's Cartier (or Raleigh).
  • Daphne Script (2013) based on Georg Salden's Daphne.

    Riga and Riga Screen (2014). Designed for web page use, this is a practical space-saving sans family. Not to be confused with several other typefaces called Riga, one by Mostar / Olivier Gourvat (2009) and one by Gunnar Link (2012).

  • Diogenes (2014) and Diogenes Decorative (2014). Microsite.
  • Brenta (2015). A sharp-edged wedge serif text family. Microsite.
  • Contemporary Sans (2015). This sans family is characterized by the contrast between horizontal and vertical strokes.
  • Godfrey (2015). A compact sans typeface family characterized by straight edges in the terminals of f, j and y, and elongated dots on i and j.
  • Kakadu (2016). A squarish sans typeface family.
  • Aspen (2016). Microsite. Influenced by the old grotesques, its oh-so-slightly flared terminals give the design some pizzazz.
  • Niko (2019). A magnificent and very legible humanist sans in 54 styles (3 widths, from Regular to Extra Condensed), characterized by slightly flared terminals.
