ABOUT







Design Tourist [Henning Brehm]

Calling himself a design tourist, German designer Henning Brehm makes fonts for films. His company in Berlin is also called Design Tourist. VLNL Agitka (2010-2020, 8 styles) contains Latin and Cyrillic characters, in a constructivist theme, and has a Neon sub-style that was used in the film Bourne Ultimatum. This family could originally be bought at Gestalten, but in 2020 the typeface was added to the Vette Letters collection.

In 2010, he published Kraut, a round outline face, and Koffer (a screen font family).

Pandorum (2012, a spaceship typeface, by Henning Brehm and Alejandro Lecuna) was especially designed for film sets in the science fiction movie Pandorum starring Ben Foster, Antje Traue and Denis Quaid.

At Vette Letters, Henning Brehm created the squarish oriental simulation typeface VLNL Kimchi: The Kimchi font had its starting point in the making of the film Cloud Atlas, based on the novel by David Mitchell and directed by Lana & Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer. A first version of Kimchi was created for Papa Song---an underground fast food restaurant in a futuristic Neo Seoul in the year 2144. It was used for the menus, advertisement and packaging.

In 2021, he released VLNL Gindicate at Vette Letters. He explains: The alcoholic beverage Gin is drunk around the world, as far back as the 13th century. Originally distilled as a medicine, it draws its main flavour from juniper berries. Gin is colourless itself but a major ingredient in a long list of famous colourful cocktails. Gimlet, Singapore Sling, Negroni, Charlie Chaplin, French 75, Vesper, Tom Collins, White Lady, Aviation, Monkey Gland, Southside, Gin Gin Mule and New Orleans Fizz are but a few of them. That made us decide it simply cannot be missing from the Vette Letters font collection. Vette Letters designer Henning Brehm originally designed VLNL Gindicate for the 2015 action movie Hitman: Agent 47. It was specifically used for the logo and signage of the maverick Syndicate International organisation in the film. It lay dormant in a folder for a while, when it was reworked into this flashy 5 weight family.
