ABOUT







Hanno Bennert

Designer from Düsseldorf, who made Seriph (at fontgrube) and Tram or Tramway (2004, a sans). In 2014, the humanist sans family Tram was published at Village, but quickly renamed Proof. Bennert: The design of Proof has its origins in many tram rides in Düsseldorf, Germany, and is directly influenced by the powerful, industrial charm of these vehicles. Many of the early sketches were drawn on these rides. (For the first several years of its life, the typeface was called Tram; alas, our friend and colleague Henrik Kubel at A2-Type had already published his CPH Tram, and we did not wish to create any confusion in the marketplace between these two vastly different designs.).

The Subtil logotype was developed for the corporate design of DSW21/public services of Dortmund. The font style is derived from their logo, a stylised uppercase D. The conglomerate DSW21 consists of twelve individual enterprises, such as Dortmund Airport, the harbour and the city's public transport. In 2007 Subtil was awarded the Certificate of Excellence in Type Design by the Type Directors Club, and in 2009 it was awarded the Certificate of Excellence by the International Society Of Typographic Designers. This rounded sans was designed together with Alexander Gialouris and Victor Malsy.

Other typefaces include BKH (corporate), NKO 1957, and Bruna Grotesk.

In 2010, he added Rota (a squarish sans: since 2010, Rekord is the corporate typeface of the Rotterdam Philharmonic), and Cafe Rekord (done with Lisa Eppinger, this is a squarish logotype).

Rheinlogik is a horizontally striped logotype for the software company Rheinlogik. MI Grotesk was custom-designed for Museum Insel Berlin.
