About
It took Hannes von Döhren and Livius Dietzel two years to develop and complete the Brix Sans family – the companion of the well-known Brix Slab. The approach was to design an independent type family following the rules of the “Sans-Serif” genre, harmonizing with its older sister Brix Slab from the “Slab-Serif” genre. The result is a family of 6 weights with matching italics, which works perfectly for corporate design & editorial design. Combined with Brix Slab, high and complex typographical challenges can be solved. The Brix Sans OpenType fonts feature small caps, five variations of numerals, arrows and an extended character set to support Central and Eastern European as well as Western European languages.

Brandon Grotesque is a sans serif type family of six weights plus matching italics. It was designed by Hannes von Döhren in 2009/10. Influenced by the geometric-style sans serif faces that were popular during the 1920s and 30s, the fonts are based on geometric forms that have been optically corrected for better legibility. Brandon Grotesque has a functional look with a warm touch. While the thin and the black weights are great performers in display sizes the light, regular and medium weights are well suited to longer texts.

Supria Sans™ is an extended family of 36 fonts designed by Hannes von Döhren. It contains two widths, six weights and three styles, including the curvy, feminine Italic as well as the more conventional Oblique.

Encompassing the same six weights and three styles as Supria Sans, and characterised by the same approach to the modernist source material, this condensed set of fonts is 20% narrower than the normal version, allowing for significant space saving economies. Used together, Supria Sans and Supria Sans Condensed become much more than just a versatile and functional workhorse – ideal for resolving complex design issues with elegance and sophistication.

About

The idea was to create a package containing prominent tag styles of graffiti strongholds like New York, Berlin and Paris. Shik (New York), Deon (Paris) and Etan (Berlin) came together to show the typical tag styles of their respective metropolitan areas. The fonts were digitized, spaced, kerned and programmed by Hannes von Döhren.

The Subway Types are highly equipped. Each one consists of 4 alphabets (Uppercase, Lowercase, Small Caps & Swash). They also include ligatures and some specials like underlines and a huge range of accents for a wide language support.

With the OpenType technology these features can be applied easily.

For those who never used the OpenType features, we created the Std (Standard) and the SC (Small Caps) versions of the fonts. They contain the same basic characters like the OT versions but are split in two fonts. Hence you don’t need any OpenType knowledge to use the Std and SC fonts.

ITC Chino Pro Display is friendly but focused, intended for setting few words in large sizes. Its two weights of Thin and Ultra are good-natured typefaces made of soft curves, contrasting straight vertical strokes and playfully structured terminals. The Thin is a chic monoline melding of script and sans serif character traits while the Ultra is a more whimsical – and more substantial – interpretation of this theme.

Its melding of soft brush stokes and crisp edges is apparent in the roman designs. The straight baseline stroke terminals provide a stable visual foundation for the cursive ending strokes. The Display family has alternate glyphs to enable the creation distinctive headlines. These can be added easily through OpenType-savvy applications.

So many designers hate Comic Sans.They think people who don't know design are overusing this funny littlefriendly font, which is nearly every time out of place. Someyears ago, type designer Hannes von Döhren created a free alternativeto Comic Sans. The difference: It has serifs and a much damn cooler look. The big success of the HVD Comic Serif pushed Von Döhren to create a Pro-version with an Eastern, Central and Western European language support.
