I am a type designer and consultant giving guidance to create distinctive high quality typography that sets you apart in the best possible way. I am based in Leipzig and recently graduated with distinction in type design from the University of Reading.

Selected Type Design
Dialogue is the Latin typeface family I crafted during the M.A. at Reading. Get a first impression on the website of the course: Dialogue / Labiba or on Issuu: Specimen.

Selected Research
Variables of Type is a systematic investigation into all formal aspects of type. Even though it is mainly focused on the latin script I am not excluding others but trying to find a flexible system which could describe any writing system and its scripts in detail — work in progress.
