Now Showing: Blacklecker


For the final show of the year, we present Blacklecker: tasty fraktur. This exhibition is our biggest and best installation so far; you really must come visit if you are anywhere near Berlin! It’s up now and will run until we close for the end of the year holidays – until 18:00 on December 23rd.

We’d like to thank all the participating designers for sending in their 22 awesome blackletter inspired typefaces.

Blacklecker: tasty fraktur

This installation is comprised of 22 unique, modern typefaces that interpret the blackletter style in new and exciting ways. Through these designs, common stereotypes and connotations often associated with traditional blackletter types are severed, allowing this genre to advance with the times and serve new and interesting roles in contemporary design.

The show runs from November 5th – December 23rd, 2011.
