Marc Weymann

Marc comes from Liechtenstein and Switzerland, but works in London as Marc Weymann Design. Graduate from the type design program at the University of Reading in 2010, where his graduation project included the Formal typeface for Latin and Devanagari. The face is strong and meant to be used for texts. It will survive in most environments.

At Dalton Maag in 2007, he codesigned Kings Caslon with Ron Carpenter. In 2008, he collaborated with Ron Carpenter and Bruno Maag on the humanist sans typeface Aller. Still at Dalton Maag, in 2007, he created the Horus pictogram set. In 2008, he created the sans face Toyota, and the hand-printed typeface Globus. In 2009 at Dalton Maag, he did Metrolink Manchester, McDonalds. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Terry Wüdenbachs

Snowboarder from Liechtenstein, who designs typefaces at P22 and its descendant foundries such as HWT. The list:

  • His first font was the whacky P22 Catalan (2003), which was inspired by Antonio Gaudi, Joán Miro and Salvador Dali.
  • In 2004, he created BlancoNeg, Mexican Relics (100 dingbats from pre-Columbian Mexico), Sniplash (a 60s cartoon face) and Durer Caps (after Dü'rer's 1525 original).
  • In 2005, he added P22 Mystic (art nouveau).
  • The curly P22 Festiva and P22 Huffer Pro (comic book face) followed in 2009.
  • In 2010, he designed two revivals of Nebiolo work, P22 Nebiornaments, and P22 Slogan (after the 1957 brush font by the same name by Aldo Novarese).
  • In 2012, he created P22 CoDependent, a set of two art deco typefaces that revive of the Independant typeface from 1930 created by Dutch designer Johannes Nicolaas Coenraad Collette along with Jos Dufour from Belgium.
  • In 2012, Terry joined forces with Richard Kegler and published the multilayered Western circus font HWT American Chromatic at Hamilton Wood Type. American Chromatic was originally created by Wm. H. Page & Co. circa 1857-59.

    In 2013, he designed HWT Arabesque for Hamilton Wood Type. This art nouveau / psychedelic typeface was originally produced by the Morgans & Wilcox Co. and the Wm. Page Co. as almost identical designs. Both manufacturers were acquired by Hamilton and offered briefly by Hamilton as design #618. William Page Arabesque was first shown in 1872 and after the Page purchase by Hamilton in 1891, it was renamed to No. 618. Similarly, the Morgan & wilcox arabesque was first shown in 1884, but after morgan's purcghase by hamilton, it was renamed to No. 3189.
