ABOUT







Kilotype [Sebastian Losch]

German type designer, who created the informal bouncy sans typeface Jolly in 2011.

In 2013, Sebastian graduated from the MATD program of the University of Reading. His graduation typeface was Teras, which he describes as follows: Teras (Greek for monster) is a kindheartedly vicious creature. It has a strong affinity for an entire range of typographic encounters, is highly articulate, slightly deformed, fierce and roughly eight feet tall. Due to its Arabic, Greek, Latin and Tamil background, every syllable it utters is a mongrel mouthful of a variety of cultural influences. It is also an exploration into the alternative type family, which in the upright mutates from a serif light weight into a sans serif black and the reversed procedure in the italics. The symbiosis of the four scripts is achieved principally by making the Latin flared, lapidary, open to conversation with its curvier peers.

Bressay (Dalton Maag), a Scotch roman co-designed in 2015 by Tom Foley, Sebastian Losch, and Spike Spondike (design lead by Stuart Brown), won an award at TDC 2016.

Aktiv Grotesk, a Dalton Maag typeface, was extended to cover Indic languages by Sebastian Losch and Kalapi Gajjar-Bordawekar. It won an award at Granshan 2016.

In 2017, Francesca Bolognini and Sebastian Losch co-designed the ribbon calligraphy font Volina at Dalton Maag. Tom Foley and Sebastian Losch published the rounded slab serif typeface family Gelo at Dalton Maag in November 2017.

He set up jhis own foundry, Kilotype, in 2018. His fonts there include Frequenz (2018), Oldschool Grotesk (2019, by William Montrose), Queens (2019), and Sequenz (2018).
