ABOUT







Christoph Seiler

Born in 1982 in Karslruhe, he is one of the cofounders of Slanted, a German web log on typography and design. In 2007, he founded his own design studio, UpShapes Interactive.

Drawn with a feather, Deadman (and Deadman Blotting and Deadman Squirting) is a gorgeous wild handwriting typeface reminiscent of the handwriting of British illustrator Ralph Steadman, and of Treefrog. It was published at Volcano in 2006 and has this wonderful motivation: The font family DEADman is mostly inspired by the weird style of the British illustrator Ralph Steadman. He had a long partnership with the American journalist Hunter S. Thompson, drawing pictures for several of his articles and books such as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
