ABOUT







Brüder Butter

Dresden, Germany-based foundry, est. 1894, which prospered in the 1920s. One of its most popular typefaces was the German industrial Kraftwerk font, Ohio Kraft. Brüder Butter later became Schriftguss AG, and then finally in 1951, VEB Typoart, the main type foundry in East Germany.

Oliver Weiss, who has excellent digital revivals of the Ohio series called Neue Ohio (2016-2017), describes the mascot that can be seen on all of Brüder Butter's materials, the green Buttermännchen, designed by Karl Sigrist: a curious mark: a stumpy, little man in a great-coat and tapered top hat. His arms are raised, his face is cheers.
