About

I am a designer based in Leipzig and just finished
the postgraduate type design programme at the
University of Reading. My work focuses on distinctive typography and type design across different media.

Get a first impression on the typefaces I crafted during my M.A. at Reading: Dialogue / Labiba.


Selected Work
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.
