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 Morgans & Wilcox Arabesque was first shown in 1884, but after Morgan's purchase by Hamilton, it was renamed to No. 3189.
  • HWT Showcard Script (2020). Described as an extended script type that lends itself well to fine fashion, ready-to-wear and all quality merchandise in a marketing blurb that pitched Beaufont by the Morgan Sign Machine Company of Chicago for their Line-O-Scribe sign printing system. This advertising script font was originally manufactured exclusively for Morgan Sign under license by the Hamilton Wood Type Manufacturing Company.
  • In 2020, the Bixlers and P22 jointly published the ornamental typeface LTC Bixler Ornaments. The digital version is due to Terry Wudenbachs.
  • P22 Snowflakes (2020). By Richard Kegler and Terry Wüdenbachs.
