ABOUT







Laurenz Feinig

Laurenz Feinig, designer and craftsman, was born 1982 in Bregenz, Austria. He explored various schools and fields of working and has been studying since 2001. He made the humanist sans typeface Telegramo (2011, Volcano), which is characterized by an extreme x-height. Several styles were added, including many slabby ones. For example, Telegramo C Bold is very much like a fat typewriter face. He explains: Telegramo is modeled on a historic telegraph from Belgrade to Vienna in 1914. The original archetypal character set consists of lowercase letters and numerals only. Uppercase letters and special characters were added after careful research. Contact pressure variations of the rudimentary type writing machine are directly imitated in the three weights: the regular weights edges are sharp, medium edges are rounded and the bold letters can nearly be called soft.
