Type and Graphic Design
manuel (-at-) vongebhardi.de




I’m an independent type designer and consultant giving guidance to create distinctive high-quality typography that sets you apart. I am based in Leipzig and recently graduated with distinction in type design from the University of Reading (UK).



Selected Type Design

Dialogue is the Latin typeface family I crafted during my MA 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.
