ABOUT







Fritz Grögel [Friedrich Groegel]

Fritz Grögel (b. Wassertrüdingen, Germany, 1974) studied graphic design and typography at the University of Applied Sciences in Potsdam, Germany. In his graduation work French Délice, he explored the history of French letterpainting. After several years of work as a corporate designer, he attended the TypeMedia master course of KABK The Hague where he researched the German letterpainting tradition. Together with Elena Albertoni, he founded the studio LetterinBerlin in 2011. The following year he conducted extensive research at Berlin's Kunstbibliothek on the history of German lettering which is the subject of his talk at ATypI 2013 in Amsterdam. That talk is based on the content of the book Karbid From lettering to type design (2013) by Verena Gerlach and Fritz Grögel published by Ypsilon Éditeurs and released on the occasion of the Amsterdam conference.

His project for the Masters in type design program at KABK in 2010 led to the signage family Hinterland (2010), and to Builderdyke (2010), a revival project with Paul van der Laan: a digital reinterpretation of Johann Michael Fleischmann's Mediaan Romein.

Other typefaces by him include Glupsisch (2010, is a round piano key typeface created with the help of Typecooker), Fritzskript (a flowing connected script that was done at the Ecole supérieure Estienne, Paris), and Estelita (a calligraphic hand that was inspired by the titles of a French art deco silent movie by Marcel L'Herbier called L'Inhumaine).
