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.
