Started by Hannes von Döhren as a young graphic designer with a passion for letters, HvD evolved to an established type foundry working together with clients, agencies and experts. Using the act of creation itself, as our driving force, we have produced a balanced array of playful and professional typefaces, always underpinned by expert execution, including FF Mark, Pluto, Reklame Script or Brandon Grotesque. One principle of HvD is that we want to deliver fonts of the highest quality level: optically AND technically.
In addition to creating self initiated typefaces, we worked on several bespoke type design projects for clients like Lufthansa, Volkswagen, Hyundai or Wal-Mart. Important or not, but good to mention: We received several design awards for our typefaces including the iF Award, the Red Dot Award or the Certificate of Excellence in Type Design from the Type Directors Club NY.
