ABOUT







Sebastian Nagel

Graduate of Fachhochschule Vorarlberg in 2004, where his Diplomarbeit was entitled Rialto eine humanistische Antiqua.

Vorarlberg, Austria-based designer of Terra Nova (2005), a gorgeous treasure map typeface based on lettering found on a map of the Americas from 1562 by Diego Gutierrez and the Dutch copperplate engraver Hieronymus Cock. In 2005, he also made Sofa (2005), a slab serif. In 2006, he added , the modular dingbat typeface Sofa and Sofa Italic. Renamed canapé serif some time later.

Other typefaces by Nagel include Canapé (a roman, slab serif and sans serif family), Scriptum (a text face), Grass Script (brush based on the hand of Mario Lorenz), Classicismo (a futuristic didone), Space, and Iwan Reschniev (2008, a Bauhaus style geometric typeface after lettering by Jan Tschichold, 1930).

In 2010, he revisited Tierra Nueva and published it at FDI. This true pirate ship font was found on a map of America, created by Spanish cartographer Diego Gutiérrez and Dutch engraver Hieronymus Cock in 1562.

In 2012, Ralf Herrmann and Sebastian Nagel co-designed the Wayfinding Sans Pro family. This useful typeface was published at FDI.

Canapé Serif (2013, FDI) has four styles. Microsite.
