ABOUT







Revolver Type Foundry [Lukas Schneider]

German type designer born in Frankfurt in 1973. He studied in Offenbach at the Hochschule für Gestaltung. He assisted Akira Kobayashi with some projects, and still lives in Frankfurt. In 2017, Lukas Schneider set up Revolver Type Foundry.

At Typeoff.de, he created the Western billboard typeface Jeans (2004), AT Stencil (2004) and the kitchen tile typeface Disco3000 (2004). At the Hochschule, he created Gazoline, a grotesk face. Lukas Schneider has free-lanced for companies in Frankfurt as well as for the magazine form and for Linotype. He runs his own studio in Frankfurt, called Protago Graphic, and most recently started Snider Inc, also in Frankfurt.

In 2007-2008, his masterpiece appeared in the FontFont collection: FF Utility, 15 styles of Bank Gothicalized alphabets specially made for information design. See also YB Utility Slab.

He custom designed in 2006-2007, under the supervision of Prof. Johannes Bergerhausen and Prof. Ulysses Voelker at Fachhochschule Mainz the Plus family (for the Plus supermarket). In particular, one font is called Plus Exklusiv Medium. Another custom design is DRAFTFB for Eikes Grafischer Hort, a hand-printed typeface that covers Latin and Cyrillic.

In 2013, he graduated from the Type and Media program at KABK in Den Haag. His graduation typeface was the delicate and quite readable text family Damien, which was created for editorial design.

In 2016, Lukas published Expose at Indian Type Foundry. This 4-style sans typeface is "constructed" or "engineered" for use in headlines.

Typefaces at Revolver Type Foundry: Damien (2017, in Display and Text subfamilies), Dinamit (2016: a terrific DIN Breitschrift, abandoned by the German DIN norming institute around 1936), Mondial Text (2016: a striking didone based on Hans Bohn's Mondial from 1930), Mondial Display (2016), Newson (a low contrast wayfinding sans with plenty of dingbats---hey, Frankfurt Airport managers, is anyone paying attention?).
