Letter Edit [Björn Gogalla]

Berlin-based type foundry, est. 2012 by Björn Gogalla. Typefaces published in 2014 include the fat didone typeface family Barkley Poster and Barkley Block (2014), and the ornamental typeface Moskau Pattern (2013), as well as the geometric sans Moskau Grotesk (2013).

Gogalla writes: The design of the typeface Moskau Grotesk is based on the signage created for the Café Moskau in Berlin by the graphic artist Klaus Wittkugel in the beginning of the 1960s. The Café Moskau, across from the Kino International on Karl-Marx-Allee in Berlin Mitte was one of the prestige edifices of the former DDR (German Democratic Republic). [...] The lettering display on the roof was created by the graphic artist Klaus Wittkugel (1910-1985). He was Professor at the School for Applied Arts in Berlin, created many posters, book covers and postage stamps, and was responsible for the signage of the Kino International as well as for the complete graphic treatment for the Palace of the Republik. Moskau Grotesk comes with a great hairline weight, ExtraLight.

In 2014, he designed Flaco.
