Andrea Tinnes is a German type designer who occasionally teaches type design. She is associated with the Das Deck agency in Berlin. Through her own label, Typecuts, which she founded in 2004, she publishes as well as promotes all her type designs. After several years of teaching at Norway's Bergen Academy of the Arts she took on a professorship of type and typography at Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle in 2008. She has a degree in communication design from the University of Applied Sciences Mainz and an MFA in graphic design from the California Institute of the Arts. Klingspor link. Her fonts:
- PTL Roletta Ornaments, PTL Roletta Slab, PTL Roletta Sans, 2004-2010. A rounded family published at Primetype.
- PTL Skopex Gothic (5 weights) and Serif (3 weights) for a total of 96 fonts, published at Primetype and Typecuts (2000-2006) (see also here). She says: Spektro (now PTL Skopex) was customized for the new identity system of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Under the supervision of Jan Jancourt and Matthew Rezac several new weights were added to the original family. In addition, the letters of the word MCAD were slightly altered and turned into a logotype font that works with the whole Spektro family.

- WeddingSans (2002), a contemporary sans family, quite useful.
