It picks up the characteristics of the female lead character and puts it into form.
Not for sale :(
2. Type Club
The Type Club is a curated online platform for type designs and type sketches by students of the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf. Despite the name, it is not an actual club consisting of a defined group of people, but rather a gathering of interested participants across the faculty. The Type Club intends to present said designs in order to initiate dialogue and to participate in the discourse of designers worldwide. The Type Club aims to offer interested people another opportunity to grow through discourse.
Furthermore you can find Interviews with practitioners as well as researchers in type design from Germany and Switzerland, talking about their practices and their beliefs contextualise student work in the contemporary typographic and design discourse.

3. Responsive Society
What does it mean to be a digital native? It means living in different microcosms. On each social platform, you perform your identity. You choose the filter people see you through, you choose your body, you choose your role. You are responsive to each format you present yourself in and you are super available to your audience. You are your own Masterpiece.
I created this typeface to read like opera – sharp, romantic and elegant with a hint of pathos. The name „Calyces“ comes from the floral forms of the letters.
Calyces is dedicated to feministic uses and therefore free. Please contact me with a short abstract of your project if you would like to use it.
5. Mickey <3 Polyphem
Proposal for a Visual Identity for a conference about the human position in digital space named Mickey <3 Polyphem initiated by Prof Mareike Foecking. The course focused on the process of developing concepts rather than polished final outcomes.
The work lays bare the code structure behind the virtual world referring to lowest common denominator between humans and machines: The textual interpretation of files, the language both can understand.
6. Armand Grotesk
This Work is named after Armand Duval, the male lead role in the novel „La Dame aux Camélias“. Like Marguerite Grotesk is an observation of the female character, Armand Grotesk is an observation of the male characteristics on said novel. Armand submits to Marguerite since he falls in love first and begs her to be with him. He is needy, jealous and impulsive. The typeface is a traditional non-serif but has a lot of fragile details to point out Armands insecure behaviour.
