ABOUT







Typejockeys [Michael Hochleitner]

Typejockeys is a graphic and type design company based in Vienna, Austria, established in 2008 by Anna Fahrmaier, Thomas Gabriel and Michael Hochleitner. Stephan Kirsch joined the team as well. They do posters, editorial and book design, web and screen design, corporate design and signage, and custom type and lettering. Michael Hochleitner obtained an MA in typeface design from the University of Reading in 2008.

His graduation typeface was Ingeborg, a readable didone text family created specifically for periodicals and books. I predict that Ingeborg will win many awards. [Note: Well, a year after my prediction, Ivo Grabowitsch declared it to be the best typeface of 2009, and TDC2 2010 awarded it as well]

Other typefaces include Drunk Type (2008) and Tender (2008).

Premiera (2009) is a type family made for small print.

Henriette (2012) is a beautiful slab serif revival family motivated and developed as follows: In the 1920s the Viennese government decided to standardize the street signs across the city. A typeface was especially constructed for the purpose. It was available in a Heavy and a Bold Condensed version, to support short street names as well as longer ones. As the years went by, the typeface was adopted and redrawn by several enamel factories. These adaptations lead to variations on the design, and to the fact that there isn't a Viennese street sign font but 16 different versions. Henriette is not a digitization of any of those versions; rather, it is influenced by all of them. The italic versions are completely original and designed to accompany the Roman.

Typefaces from 2014: Carabelle (roundish upright script based on Nebiolo's Calipso), Sauber Script (signage script), Freude (roundish script).

Typefaces by Typejockeys in 2015: Vito (60 style sans family by Thomas Gabriel described by them as follows: Masculine and sporty for adrenaline junkies, reliable and elegant for serious typographers, but with a touch of bling for high snobiety).

In 2018, Michael Hochleitner, Christoph Schütz, Simon Liesinger and Franziska Weitgruber co-designed Gretel Script at Typejockeys. This optically sized three-style typeface is based on the hand of calligrapher Natascha Safarik.

Typefaces from 2019: Post Sans (for Austrian Post).
