ABOUT







Coen Hofmann

Born in Amsterdam in 1939, Hofmann started out as a typesetter, and then morphed into a calligrapher and an author on calligraphy, and finally into a type designer.

Designer at URW++/Fontforum of

  • Admira (2019). A revival of the striped all caps money font Admira (1940, Schriftguss).
  • Altrincham (2003).
  • Caxtonian Black (2012). A blackletter.
  • Globus Cursive (2015, +Cyrillic). This cursive font is a revival of a font by Friedrich Hermann Wobst (1932, D. Stempel AG).
  • Gothic Initials (2015). After an original from 1821 by Firmin Didot's foundry.
  • Holland Gothic (2012). A blackletter.
  • Jason Uncial (2012). A unicase uncial design.
  • Perugia Cursive (2003). A gorgeous calligraphic script based on the 19th century "Scrittura Rotonda Francese" and "Scrittura Italiana" developed by Italian calligrapher Cesare Silvestrini.
  • Pinel Pro (2014). A revival of a didone from 1899 by Joseph Pinel called French 10pt No. 2. URW++ writes: Coen Hofmann digitized the font from a batch of very incomplete, damaged and musty drawings, which he dug up in Altrincham. He redrew all characters, bringing up the hairstrokes somewhat in the process.
  • Ramona (2004). A shaded typeface.
  • Revis (2011). A formal script based on Daphne, a typeface that was originally designed by German type designer Georg Salden. For some reason, that typeface was withdrawn from the URW++ library some time later.
  • Romeo (2004). A 3d beveled shadow face.
  • Sax (2008). A didone typeface family.
  • Seizieme Pro (2013). Based on the 1905 font Série 16 by Peignot, which was mainly used for scientific publications.
  • Signpainters Script (2013). A connected copperplate script.
  • Silvestrini (2003). A gorgeous Gando-style ronde. Based on the 19th century "Scrittura Rotonda Francese" and "Scrittura Italiana" developed by Italian calligrapher Cesare Silvestrini.
  • Sirius and Sirius Caps (2003). A garalde family developed together with British type designer Neville Brown.
  • Technotype (2011). A revival of Herbert Thannhaeuser's 1952 slab serif family Technotyp.
  • Thomas Schrift and Thomas Versalien (2015). Based on Friedel Thomas's Thomas Schrift and Thomas Versalien from 1956-1958.
  • URW Akropolis (2016, URW++). A revival of the cigar box open typeface Acropolis designed by the Ludwig Wagner foundry in Leipzig in 1940.
  • Pergamon (2016, URW++). A wonderful 10-style didone typeface family that revives, extends and modernizes Pergamon Antiqua first designed in 1937 at Ludwig Wagner in Leipzig by Alfons Scheider.
  • Marli (2016). A revival of the cursive typeface Korso by F. Schweimanns (1913).
  • Moewe (2017). An open typeface in the blackboard bold genre that revives Möwe (1929, Heinz Beck for Genzsch & Heyse).
  • Golf (2017). Golf was originally designed by Henry Reinhard Möller in 1935 for Schriftguss KG. Coen Hofmann redrew the capitals and then added lower case letter and Cyrillic alphabets.
