Large international design studio started in Berlin by [[Erik Spiekermann]] in 1979.

The typeface [[Meta]] was originally designed for the German Post Office in 1985 and called [[PT 55]], but never introduced. It was later redigitized for the studio's own communications, then licensed to [[FontShop International]] and exploded into one of the best selling and most used typefaces of the 1990s. It is still the best-selling font in the [[FontFont]] library.
