German typophile based in Heidelberg. Board member of Bund für die deutsche Sprache. His typefaces include:

  • Donnersberg (2013). Donnersberg is a gothic block-letter typeface designed for easy handwriting. It is based on forms of the gothic cursive and of other blackletter styles. Its simple letter forms are suitable for both broad-nib and pointed-nib writing. Started in 2008, it was finished in 2013.
  • Gorton. Josh writes: Gorton is a revival of the default typeface for the Gorton engraving machines. That typeface and typefaces derived from it have been used for a wide range of products, from aircraft instruments to computer keyboards. URW offers a digital font named Gordon that seems to be based on the Gorton typeface but it is quite different, has no lowercase letters and its quality is poor.
  • Grid15 (2015). A programming font.

The Gourmand Magazine
[David Lane]

British magazine whose creative director is David Lane. In 2015, Gourmand Grotesque 777 and 888 won a European Design Bronze Medal. The ED Awards citation reads: The Gourmand has collaborated with international type house Monotype to design two new bespoke typefaces to be used exclusively in their print and online editions. The typefaces are loosely based on original and unused designs of Monotype Grotesque---more a collection of mismatching grotesques than a fully resolved typeface---taken from the Monotype archives, which house more than a hundred years of typographic and graphic design history. The two new designs, Grotesque 777 and Grotesque 888, reference elements from seven different grotesque typefaces, all designed by Monotype in the twentieth century. Type designer Gunnar Vilhjálmsson and The Gourmand's creative director David Lane drew on the attributes of each of the different designs to build the new typefaces. Using the archive as a reference and the publication as the intended platform, they crafted everything from weight and proportions to individual letterform shapes. The two new grotesques also offer a reinterpretation of the inherent oddities of the older designs---especially visible in the exaggerated and unconventional ampersand---whilst also unifying and updating the overall forms. The end result is a completely new editorial grotesque that blends elements of its historic predecessors into an idiosyncratic, contemporary design. [Google] [More]  ⦿
