ABOUT







Typic [Ekke Wolf]

Austrian type designer (b. 1972) who published with URW, but started his own typefoundry, Ekke Wolf, which became Typic some time later.

Creator of Atlantic Sans and Atlantic Serif, both legible informal families, done in 2003 at URW++. There is also the grunge typeface Atlantic Sea Washed.

Ekke designed the informal hand-drawn sans typeface Barack in 2012 at URW, to pay homage to Barack Obama. In 2017, after Trump's election, Ekke's nostalgia for better times and a decent past president shone through in Barack Pro.

In 2013, Wolf designed Liebelei Pro Italic, and wrote: The typeface Liebelei has its roots back in 1932, when Vienna-based painter Rudolf Vogl created the poster for a movie called Liebelei after the popular play by Arthur Schnitzler. Only the title letters existed of that typeface. I loved the letters from first sight and proceeded by adventurously interpreting the missing characters.

In 2015, he continued his nostalgic tour of Vienna with Calafati Pro (a connected cursive font named after magician Basilio Calafati (1800-1878) who worked in the Wiener Prater), Runde Wien (a rounded sans typeface family, including unicase styles), and Wien Pro (a vintage sans family withy Oblique, Superoblique and Unicase subfamilies).

Typefaces from 2017 include Ermis Pro.
