ABOUT







Thomas Ackermann

Thomas Ackermann studied Communication Design at Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften Hamburg (Germany) and Shenkar School of Engineering and Design in Tel Aviv. He worked as freelance designer for Blotto Design in Berlin and teaches typography at the design department of HAW Hamburg. He specializes in corporate design, typography and type design favouring big letters in architectural spaces. In 2010, he founded PBLC---Büro für Visuelle Kommunikation---with three other partners in Hamburg.

Codesigner of FF Bauer Grotesk (2014, Fontfont), with Felix Bonge. Fontfont writes: FF Bauer Grotesk is a revival of the metal type Friedrich Bauer Grotesk, released between 1933 and 1934 by the foundry Trennert & Sohn in Hamburg Altona, Germany. The geometric construction of the typeface, infused with the Art Deco zeitgeist of that era, is closely related to such famous German designs as Futura, Erbar, Kabel and Super Grotesk that debuted a few years earlier. However, Bauer Grotesk stands out for not being so dogmatic with the geometry, lending the design a warmer, more homogenous feeling. The oval O is a good example of this approach, as are characteristic shapes like the capital M or the unconventional varying stroke endings on the c and s which give them a less constructed look.
