ABOUT







Fatype [Anton Koovit]

Foundry, est. in 2012 by Anton Koovit and Yassin Baggar in Berlin, and in Neuchatel, Switzerland. Fatype has designed typefaces for GQ France (such as GQ Baton), Derzeit (2012, Fashion Week Berlin Daily: a typeface by Yassin Baggar and Manuel Schibli), Google and Journal B. Their typefaces include U8 (2010, Anton Koovit: named after the ghost stations underground that were closed in the good old days of the GDR), Aleksei (Anton Koovit) and Adam BP (2008, Anton Koovit).

U8 started out as a Berlin subway system signage project based on found lettering. Some glyphs had to designed from scratch. The result is an early modernist typeface with elements of DIN and Bauhaus. Anton Koovit and Yassin Baggar offer a new take on U8 in their UCity typeface family (2019).

Typefaces from 2012 include Adam Serif (a book and magazine typeface family).

In 2013, Anton Koovit and Yassin Baggar co-designed the low x-height typeface family Baton.

In 2014, he created Aleksei.

In 2017, he designed the free sans font family Aino (+Bold, +Headline) for use by the Estonian government.
