I'd like to know the difference between a typographer and a type designer.
Can you provide two definitions with examples, please?
Thanks in advance.
Wilhelm Pischner designed Neuzeit Grotesk for Stempel AG in the late thirties.
Part of a self-initiated research, I've been looking for a portrait photography of him without any success so far.
I've asked Linotype, the Klingspor Museum and the Hessisches Landesmuseum in Darmstadt. Any of these institutions has seen a picture of this designer. Before enquiring at Offenbach's city archives, where he was born, I decided to post on this forum.
Thanks in advance for your help.
I design a magazine, each issue is about a specific city. The next issue will be about Athens, Greece. I am trying to get in touch with any type designers who live and/or work in Greece, preferably Athens. Do you know of anyone?
The past 2 issues of the magazine have used typefaces created by high profile type designers in appropriate cities and I wish to continue this precedent by representing the city through the typography.
Any help or opinions on Greek type please get in touch! thanks. Feel free to email me here: firstname.lastname@example.org
