Friedrich Althausen 2012

Friedrich Althausen

I design typefaces and logotypes for local and global companies. You may know my free typeface »Vollkorn« which became famous during my studies at the Bauhaus University in Weimar. Since an internship at a signpainter master I love to work with brush and pen. I live and work in Caputh near Berlin. I am also in demand as typographic consultant.

Get in touch!
