Putting Back the Face into Typeface

GESTALTEN.tv: Erik Spiekermann

"It is the combination: without letters we wouldn´t exist, there would be no knowledge, there would be no science and there would be no history. I find it fascinating that I use the words like everybody else, I write the words but I go a little bit deeper, I go into the letters."


Typographer, graphic designer and businessman Erik Spiekermann has created timeless, influential and, yes, Meta-physical work over the past three decades.

Next to founding MetaDesign, Edenspiekermann, and FontShop, the latter being the first ever digital distributor of fonts, and designing more instant classic typefaces than any other, he has been recognized as an outstanding expert internationally.
