ABOUT







Holger Königsdörfer

Typographer and type designer living in the countryside of the Altmühl Valley. Graduate of the Type and Media program at KABK, 2009. Originally from Augsburg, Germany, he had previously studied at the University of Applied Sciences in Augsburg (Germany) and the Istituto Superiore per le Industrie Artistiche in Urbino (Italy). Typefaces:

  • His graduation project at the University of Applied Sciences in Augsburg was the winged slab serif typeface Vela (2010, Lazydogs Type Foundry).
  • Acon (2009, graduation project at KABK, a book type). Holger writes: Most contemporary books use typefaces based on the contrast of the broad nib pen, while typefaces based on the contrast of the pointed nib have been relegated to use in fashion, lifestyle magazines and cosmetic packaging. My aim is to design a typeface based on the pointed pen that is suitable for book typography. Well, Acon was awarded with the TTDC (Tokyo Type Directors Club) Type Design Prize 2010.
  • Camion (2008, slab serif).
  • He finished a revival and improvement of van Krimpen's Romanée in 2017, and published it at Lazydogs, after initially being kept from doing so by The Enschedé Font Foundry (TEFF) who claimed total rights to Romanée. Holger's typeface was wisely renamed Renommée in 2018.
