ABOUT







Eugen Nerdinger

German type and graphic designer (b. 1910, Augsburg, d. 1991, Augsburg) who created this text family in 1945. Coauthor with Lisa Beck of Schriftschreiben Schriftzeichnen (1977, München) and Kalligraphie (1988, München). Older texts by him include Alphabete (1974, München), Zeichen, Schrift und Ornament (1960, Callwey, München), and Buchstabenbuch (1954, Callwey, München). Nerdinger was active in the German resistance against the Nazis and was arrested in 1942 by the Gestapo and conviced to three and a half years of prison and forced labor. After the war, he worked chiefly at the Augsburger Kunstschule.

One of his alphabets led to Lola (2013, Laura Meseguer). Rigatoni (2017, Alejandro Paul) is a skyline didone also based on Nerdinger's examples.
