Thank-you-Postcard---front Introduction — The first THANK YOU Card I printed in 2012. I wanted a simple card to give to friends.


The design is inspired by the Typographic Wall Calendar which I produce since 2009. The card was received well so I designed a HAPPY NEW YEAR‘s card. As a friend of mine went to hospital I felt the need for an original GET WELL card. With the next birthday coming up, I thought how great it would be to have a typographic birthday card, which eventually became this simple CAKE on pink background card:

cake-front

In 2014 I published the fifth Edition of the Typographic Wall Calendar and since the cards were inspired by the calendar I decided to print the designs I had prepared and a total of 14 motifs as a Reward for Backers on Kickstarter.

To me, a postcard is an everyday object, that I relate to writing and holidays. Even though I find myself receiving less and less handwritten letters, on every vacation spot, every Museum store and every train station one will find postcards. I imagined how my own postcard would look like and played with the thought of receiving a card which simply features the words “New York”, “Rome”, or “Mountain view”. These thoughts eventually led to the…

Postcards and Keyboards
Honestly, I was never a big fan of postcards. To me they seemed like the little brother of the letter. I thought if you want to write, then write a letter. Sometimes I think that the contemporary form of a postcard is posting a holiday picture on Facebook. With the possibility to send SMS, email and post to social networks from everywhere, the usability of a postcard seems questionable. But maybe its charm and value is in the postcard’s casualty and non-urgent character.

WRITING-front As a typographer I am interested in the disappearing of handwriting or its suppression by the typewriter. The forward march of the typewriter has been going on for quite a while. Measured by it’s invention (around 1714) it took over the quarter of a millennium. The end of handwriting looms, but the threat is out of sight. Working with used keyboard keys as a motif on postcards seems to tie the two opposites of digital communication and handwriting. A closer look turns the situation on it’s head. The postcard is an invention made in the late 19th century, therefor was introduced about 150 years after the typewriter.

Photography
The image on this postcard renders the object at its actual size. The background of the first THANK YOU card is a cutting mate with a 5mm grid to revise the scale of the depicted. A photo can be enlarged or shrunk to any size. Rendering the depicted in actual size makes it easier for the viewer to relate to its original size.

The pictures are taken from above with a special reproduction lens to reduce distortion. Shadow and Perspective are two compositional tools for the photographer. I try to hide the fact that the picture is taken with a camera. First I try to take as much distance from the object as possible, this way all sides of each key are visible. The outcome is a picture with little to no visible perspective. With evenly lighting I remove shadows. By making the picture as neutral as possible, I hope that the viewer rather refers to the work as a picture than a photograph. This picture without photographic effects allows to look at the writing tool rather than a photo of a keyboard. The keys appear as neatly and orderly on display like butterflies in a natural museum.

When is the last time you looked at you keyboard? The keyboard itself is about to disappear, less and less phones are produced with real keypads. The touch screen succeeds the keyboard. On a touch screen, the only thing that reminds the user of an original keyboard is its image. I assume that this likeness will be replaced by speech recognition software. One could say: the future is not written but dictated.

Postkarten-2013-XL-12x17-5-Email-me-front


Memory
Do you remember the first time you read the sentence “Sent from my iPhone”?




The Card SENT FROM MY PHONE plays with the poetic sentence every iPhone politely and out of the box attaches to every email. After a short research in my mail archive I found out that I received the first mail from a phone on December 11 in 2008. I really do find something poetic in that sentence. At the time it sounded promising like a trailer of a long expected film. The idea of sending a mail from a phone would have been laughable before the introduction of the Apple product in 2007. On one hand the sentence hints that the receiver owns an expensive phone, on the other hand it points to the situation that the mail was written on the go. Writer Harris Wittels introduced with “Humblebrag” a matching term to describe the conflict between a frank statement and a show-off. In the Huffington Post Bianca Poster explains why she includes the “Sent from my iPhone” even when it is not “…purely to get out of writing a lengthy, detailed response”. SENT FROM MY PHONE shows a change that we witness but that we haven’t found the right words for.

Typographic Detail : The card is set in original Apple keys from keyboards made from 1989 to 1992 in Ireland. It is easy to spot Apple keys from their typography. The letters are positioned in the lower left and not on the upper left like most PC keyboards. Instead of an extended upright type with a rather static appeal, the typeface used here is condensed and cursive which gives the keys a fast look.

YES-NO-MAYBE FORGOT TO REMEMBER TO FORGET is inspired by the famous country song “I forgot to remember to forget” by Elvis Presley performed in 1955.

















YES NO MAYBE reminds me of the little notes I used to write in high school. A slip of paper was folded and then under extreme caution given from hand to hand and table to table. The content of the note always stayed secret, but everybody knew who was communicating how much and with whom. Only now it seems much easier to pass the writing in the break, but I guess it was more about the jeopardy to get caught and the urge to tell everybody that one has a secret.

A strange time and when I think of it a feeling of nostalgia hits me. Long ago the handwritten folded note was replaced by the SMS and online chats. I asked students and teachers and they told me that until a certain age the notes are still exchanged in that way. But I would never like to sit in a room in which another persons forbids to write notes on paper. On the other Hand I do not want to be in a room in which others write notes and covertly share them.

The SATOR Square is a latin Palindrome. The keys read the same forwards and backwards, from bottom to top and in reverse. As a result the SATOR Square evokes a calming sense of order and complete symmetry. The earliest datable square was found in the ruins of Pompeii that was buried in the ash of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 almost 2000 years ago.

Conclusion
As symbols for handwritten and digital writing, both postcard and keyboard are about to disappear. Tactile keyboards are about to be replaced by touch screens and voice recognition just like the typewriter was meant to replace handwriting. There is no clear winner, maybe technology is not about winning. The charm of this unequal couple is in its opposition. I imagine them as two intertwined actors who are about to leave the stage, playfully teasing each other while heading for the exit.

Postkarten-2013-XL-12x17-5-Happy-New-Year-front Einleitung — Die erste THANK YOU Postkarte habe ich 2012 gedruckt. Ich wollte eine einfache Dankeschönkarte haben die ich an Freunde geben kann. Die Karte war inspiriert von dem Typographic Wall Calendar den ich seit 2009 herstelle. Die Karte kam gut an und als nächstes entwarf ich eine Neujahrskarte (Bild links). Als ein Freund im Krankenhaus lag, dachte ich mir das ich jetzt eine gute Gute-Besserungs-Karte (GET WELL) gebrauchen könnte. Beim nächsten Geburtstag eines Freundes fehlte mir eine passende Karte (CAKE – engl. Kuchen). Für 2014 entschloss ich mich insgesamt 14 Motive für die Unterstützer des TWC auf Kickstarter zu drucken.

Die Postkarte ist für mich ein alltäglicher Gegenstand, den ich mit Schreiben und Urlaub verbinde. Auch wenn die Zahl der handgeschriebenen Briefe zurückgeht, an jedem Urlaubsort, in jedem Museumsshop und an jedem Bahnhof findet man Postkarten. Ich stellte mir die Frage, wie meine Urlaubspostkarte aussehen würde und spielte mit dem Gedanken Karten zugesandt zu bekommen auf denen New York, Rome, Berglandschaft oder Sandstrand steht. Das Ergebnis dieser Überlegung ist die BEACH Karte.

READING-front





Postkarten und Tastaturen
Ehrlich gesagt war ich nie ein großer Freund von Postkarten. Die Postkarte erschien mir als der kleine Bruder des Briefes. Ich dachte mir wenn man es ernst meint schreibt man einen Brief. Manchmal glaube ich das die zeitgenössische Ansichtskarte eine Photo auf Facebook ist. Die ständige Sendebereitschaft durch Kurznachrichten, email und sozialen Netzwerken scheint die Nützlichkeit einer Postkarte in Frage zu stellen. Aber vielleicht liegt gerade in ihrer Beiläufigkeit und Undringlichkeit der Scharm und Wert der Postkarte?

Als Typograph interessiert mich das Verschwinden der Handschrift oder deren Verdrängung durch die Schreibmaschine. Der Vormarsch der Schreibmaschine streckt sich, gemessen an der Erfindung der Schreibmaschine (etwa 1714) nun über mehr als ein viertel Jahrtausend. Ein Ende der Handschrift droht, ist aber nicht in Sicht. Das verwenden von gebrauchten Computertasten als Motiv auf Postkarten verbindet die beiden Gegensätze von handschriftlicher und digitaler Kommunikation. Beim näheren Betrachten dreht sich jedoch das Verhältnis, so ist die Postkarte eine Erfindung des späten 19 Jhd. kam also gut ein einhalb Jahrhunderte nach der Schreibmaschine auf die Welt.

Thank-you-Postcard---front Fotografie
Die Tasten werden auf jeder Karte in Originalgröße abgebildet. Der Hintergrund der ersten THANK YOU Karte ist eine Schneidematte mit 5mm Einteilungen um den Maßtab der Abbildung überprüfbar zu machen.

Ein Photo kann beliebig vergrößert und verkleinert werden. Die Abbildung in Originalgröße bringt das Bild etwas näher an den abgebildeten Gegenstand, da ich als Betrachter einen Bezug zu der tatsächlichen Größe haben kann.

Die Bilder sind stets von oben aufgenommen mit einem speziellen Objektiv um Verzerrungen zu vermeiden. Perspektive und Schatten sind Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten des Fotografen. Ich versuche diese Gestaltungsmittel so weit es geht in den Hintergrund zu stellen, um ein neutrales Bild zu schaffen. Als erstes nehme ich so viel Abstand zum Objekt wie möglich, um auf diese Weise alle Seiten der Tasten gleichmäßig sichtbar zu machen. Dadurch entsteht ein Bild mit wenig erkennbarer Perspektive. Mit gleichmäßiger Ausleuchtung entferne ich die Schatten. Das Ergebnis ist ein sehr neutrales Bild mit der Absicht, dass der Betrachter in der Arbeit mehr ein Bild, als eine Photographie sieht. Es ermöglicht für mich den Blick auf das Instrument des Schreibens und den Gebrauch der Tastatur zu lenken. Die Tasten wirken dadurch säuberlich sortiert und gleichsam aufgespießt wie Schmetterlinge im Naturkundemuseum.

Wann haben Sie zuletzt ihre Tastatur betrachtet? Die Tastatur selbst ist auf dem Rückzug, kaum ein Telefon wird heute noch mit Tasten zum Anfassen ausgestattet. Der Touchscreen löst die Tastatur ab. Im Touchscreen ist die Tastatur nur noch als Abbild vorhanden als Hinweis auf etwas, was einmal war. Ich nehme an, dass dieses Bild der Tastatur bald abgelöst wird von Spracherkennungssoftware. Man könnte sich nun hinreißen lassen und sagen: die Zukunft wird nicht geschrieben sondern diktiert.

Erinnerung
Erinnern Sie sich wann Sie das erste Mal eine Email mit dem Zusatz “Sent from my iPhone” erhalten haben?

SENT-FROM-MY-PHONE-front-
Die Karte SENT FROM MY PHONE spielt mit dem Satz den das iPhone eigenständig an jede versendete Email anfügt. Nach einer kurzen Recherche in meinem Mailarchiv finde ich heraus, dass ich am 11.12.2008 das erste Mal eine Mail von einem Telefon erhalten habe. Ich finde etwas Poetisches in dem Beisatz. Die Vorstellung etwas von einem Telefon zu senden wäre vor der Einführung des iPhone 2007 absurd. Zum einen weist der Beisatz darauf hin, dass der Absender der Nachricht ein teures Telefon besitzt, zum anderen wird auf die Situation des Schreibens von Unterwegs hingedeutet. Vom Autor Harris Wittels gibt es im Englischen bereits einen Vorschlag für ein Wort, dass den Zwiespalt zwischen aufrichtiger Aussage und Angeberei andeutet: “Humblebrag“. In der Huffington Post findet sich sogar der Vorschlag, jenes auch an Mails anzuhängen die vom Computer gesendet werden “…purely to get out of writing a lengthy, detailed response”. “SENT FROM MY PHONE” ist für mich der Ausdruck eines Wandels den wir erleben, aber noch nicht in klare Worte gefasst haben.

Typographisches Detail: gesetzt ist diese Karte in Apple Tasten die zwischen 1989 und 1992 hergestellt wurden. Das besondere an Apple Tasten ist, dass die Buchstaben nicht oben links, sondern unten links auf den Tasten platziert sind. Außerdem unterscheidet sich der Schriftschnitt kursiv und schmal wesentlich von denen anderer Hersteller.

FORGOT-TO-REMEMBER-TO-FORGET-front FORGOT TO REMEMBER TO FORGET ist inspiriert von dem 1955 erscheinen Country Song “I forgot to remember to forget” (Ich vergaß mich zu erinnern “sie” zu vergessen) von Elvis Presley.

YES NO MAYBE erinnert mich an die Zettel die ich während meiner Schulzeit geschrieben und unter der Hand weitergegeben habe. Im Klassenraum wurden gefaltete Zettel mit großer Vorsicht und mit dem Risiko vom Lehrer entdeckt zu werden von Hand zu Hand und Tisch zu Tisch weiter gegeben. Der Inhalt blieb zumeist geheim doch wusste jeder, wer mit wem wie oft schrieb. Im Nachhinein meine ich, es wäre einfacher das Geschriebene in der Pause zu übergeben, aber das Schöne war wahrscheinlich die Spannung, entdeckt zu werden und gleichzeitig das Bedürfnis allen mit teilen zu wollen, dass man ein Geheimnis hat.

Eine komische Zeit und wenn ich an sie denke, kribbelt die Sehnsucht ein wenig im Bauch. Diese Zeit ist unerreichbar, der Zettel ist für mich längst von SMS und Chats abgelöst worden. Außerdem würde ich mich nie wieder in einen Raum setzen mit jemanden, der mir verbietet eine Nachricht auf einen Zettel zu schreiben. Auf der anderen Seite würde ich nicht in einem Raum sein wollen, in dem sich andere Zettel schreiben und verdeckt übergeben.

SATOR-SQUARE-front Das SATOR Quadrat ist ein lateinisches Palindrom. Die Tasten lassen sich vorwärts und rückwärts sowie von oben nach unten und umgekehrt lesen. Als Resultat verbreitet das SATOR Quadrat eine beruhigende Stimmung der Ordnung und Symmetrie. Das früheste datierbare Quadrat wurde in den Ruinen von Pompeii gefunden. Die Stadt Pompeii wurde 79n.Chr also vor fast 2000 Jahren unter der Asche des Vulkans Vesuvius begraben.

Schlussbemerkung
Als Symbole für die handschriftliche und digitale Kommunikation stehen beide, Postkarte und Tastatur unter dem Vorzeichen des Verschwindens. Der Touchscreen und die Spracherkennungssoftware bedrohen die Berechtigung der Tastatur genau wie einst die Schreibmaschine die Handschrift. Es ist also nicht so, dass die eine Technik die andere Ablöst, es gibt keinen Gewinner. Der Reiz dieses ungleichen Paares liegt für mich in Ihren scheinbaren Gegensätzen. Wenn man möchte, erkennt man in der Verbindung der beiden zwei sich im Abgang befindliche Darsteller, die weniger übereinander und mehr miteinander scherzen.

Sigmund Freud Typeface

With kind support from the Sigmund Freud Museum Vienna and the Freud Museum London.
kickstarter-badge-funded
“For those who regret
what keyboards and touch screens
have done to their penmanship,
typographer Harald Geisler has an answer:
Sigmund Freud.”


The Wall Street Journal


Sigmund Freud was a neurologist who lived from 1856 to 1939. His research and studies led to the foundation of ‘Psychoanalysis’.

When I first saw Freud’s century old letters, I was fascinated by the beauty of these historic manuscripts. It made me smile to imagine a person writing his or her shrink a letter set in Freud’s handwriting. I started to plan creating a font based on his manuscripts.

I contacted the Sigmund Freud Museum Vienna and Freud Museum London. To start the creation I selected eight handwritten documents – This selection of specimen was my orientation during the design process. They were created between 1883 to 1938 and are of various character such as handwritten scientific papers, personal letters, notes and a telegram.

A successful Kickstarter Campaign with over 1400 Backers enabled me to visit the Archive and study the original Manuscripts of Sigmund Freud. Here you can see the video for the Kickstarter Campaign:

After months of development I finished four alphabets based on Freud’s handwriting. Why four and not just one? When you write a text on your computer every letter looks exactly the same. When you write with your hand, every letter looks a little different.

In order to make type look like handwriting, different variations of each letter have to be drawn and stored in the font. The font is then programmed to exchange letters while you are typing. This makes the rendered result on your screen or print look like handwriting.









The PRO Version contains all alphabets and alters the appearance of the written text while you are typing. The alternating mechanism works in certain applications i.e. Word 2010(or newer), Pages, TextEdit, InDesign, Illustrator… some applications like LibreOffice, OpenOffice do not support this feature. Maybe future versions will. Until then you can use the Sigmund Freud Font #1 , #2, #3 and #4 to access the different alphabets by hand.

The sixth file Kurrent renders German handwriting. Until the 1950′s a slightly different handwriting was taught in German speaking countries (Switzerland, Austria, Germany). This script had three significantly different letters (s,h,e,). This style of writing was called Kurrent. Most of Freud’s correspondence was written in German.

You will receive all six fonts (Sigmund Freud Typeface PRO, #1, #2, #3, #4 and Kurrent). The Fonts (OpenType PostScript) work on all Windows, Mac and Linux Computers. The Sigmund Freud Typeface is international and features a wide range of accented letters to reach everyone in Sweden, France, Hungary and almost everywhere around the globe (Find a complete list below).

Conspired Lovers



Conspired Lovers is inspired by love-letter-writing. A font to capture the intentions of writing love letters more than any other font.

Conspired Lovers ist inspiriert vom Schreiben von Liebesbriefen. Eine Schrift die die Intentionen vom Liebesbriefeschreiben mehr verkörpert als jede andere Schrift.


How did the Project start?
 In the last five years I wrote love letters with two persons. I became used to the joy of handwriting with ink and nib on fine paper. Through practice and experimentation my hand continuously refined. As life moves on, suddenly I found myself with no one to write love letters to. It’s a luxury to have someone to write letters to. Missing this luxury and joy of writing, listening to Gregory Porter’s “Be Good”, the decision was made to take this 5 years of writing and turn this dance on paper into a font. A handwritten typeface for everyone to use.


The Open-type version features 350+ glyphs including alternates and ligatures. All lowercase and most uppercase letters are connected, to create a realistic hand-writing-calligraphy on your creations.

Conspired Lovers is international and features a wide range of accented letters to reach everyone in Sweden, France, Hungary and almost everywhere around the globe. The font is delivered in OpenType format and works on PC and MAC.


Wie hat das Projekt begonnen?
  In den vergangenen fünf Jahren habe ich mir mit zwei Personen Liebesbriefe geschrieben. Ich gewöhnte mich an den Genuss handschriftlich mit Tinte auf feines Papier zu schreiben. Durch kontinuierliches Schreiben und Experimentieren habe ich meinen Stil verfeinert. Das Leben bewegt sich weiter; auf einmal finde ich mich in einer Situation ohne eine Person an die ich einen Liebesbrief schreiben kann. Es ist ein angenehmer Luxus jemanden zu haben dem man Briefe schreiben kann. Als mir dieser Genuß am meisten fehlt höre ich Gregory Porter’s “Be Good” und entschließe diese fünf Jahre Liebesbriefeschreiben, diesen Tanz auf dem Papier aufzunehmen und damit eine Schrift zu machen. Einen Font mit dem jeder schreiben kann.

Die Schrift wurde im Juli 2012 umgesetzt und heißt Conspired Lovers. Ein Font der die Absicht einer Botschaft auf eine einzigartige Weise einfängt und übermittelt, an die die einem nah am Herzen liegen.

Sie erhalten eine Schrift die für PC und Mac geeignet ist. Alle Kleinbuchstaben und die meisten Großbuchstaben sind miteinander verbunden um ein sehr realistisches handschriftliches Schriftbild in Ihren Kreationen zu erzeugen.
Mit mehr als 350 Zeichen, Alternativfiguren, Ligaturen, Sonderzeichen und Akzenten (z.B. Å, Ä, Ã, Â , Á , À oder Ñ, Ò, Ó, Ô, Õ, Ö, Ø) ist der Font auch für internationale Kommunikation vorbereitet.

Capital Love

Capital Love is a fresh, hand drawn Font. The alphabets vivid ductus reminds of the dynamic qualities that can be found in Keith Haring’s graffiti drawings.

    Echinacea

    Echinacea by Harald Geisler
    I admit the flowers in this picture (Echinacea) I had forgotten in my studio.
    After weeks they dried out, but they kept their color.
    At one point they fell down on my couch and spread everywhere.
    Since chance is an important factor in my creation process,
    I decided to work with it and to experiment and try to capture this beauty.

    I never meant to publish this picture, but after I showed my experiments to a friend he insisted that I should print them. As a tribute to the old masters of still life painting that can be found from the 16th to 18th century throughout Europe, especially in the Netherlands and Germany. My friend first thought that I had taken a picture from one of those hundred-year-old Dutch prints. He was convinced the little seeds that lay on the front glass were flies surrounding the fleeting beauty of the fading flowers. While I never intensely studied the old masters, somehow I knew their pictures. Their stillness lures to dwell in the picture. It is the meditational aspect in viewing, or the contemplational rest these pictures offer that fascinates me.

    Detail:

    Echinacea by Harald Geisler, Detail 4 The black background and subject matter too are common ground with the “old masters still life”.
    One difference I’d like to point out.
    You’ll find layers, such as objects in front of each other and with it depth,
    but surprisingly you’ll never find the illusion of perspective.

    Pricing:

    Light Hearted Font



    The text, displayed in the picture above “I don’t know what there is to say about love…”, is my translated english transcription of an introduction spoken in German by Jean Baudrillard (from: Prolog: Wieder die Liebe / Prologue: Against Love). The text continues:

    Eros creates and furthers relations,
    affects, projections and identifications.
    Love one another!
    Who could’ve ever said seduce one another?


    Light Hearted is inspired by the above mentioned recording of Jean Baudrillard with the title Die Macht der Verführung 1 (The Power of Seduction) from 2006. The typeface used in the text is Light Hearted Capital Love. Further inspiration came from the article The shape of the heart: I’m all yours. The heart represents sacred and secular love: a bloodless sacrifice.2 by British writer Louisa Young printed in EYE magazine (#43) London, 2002.

    Light Hearted is a Family of seven Fonts.

    Let me introduce you to the family members:

    Capital Love - Just contains capital letters. By pressing a lowercase button a alternative to the uppercase letter will appear. Every letter of the alphabet decorated with hearts. Cute Letters – A heart on every capital letter. They are so cute. Unchain My Heart by Harald Geisler Chained Hearts – Hearts on a string with a letter in the middle. All hearts are designed to allign automaticly to a perfect string. Lowercase letters produce a heart with outline. Uppercase letters produce a filled heart. Prince Charming – The Prince Charming puts a heart on everything. If you’re convinced that you love – you’ve got to go with Prince Charming. Princess Charming – The Princess Charming puts more hearts on every letter. Convince that you have to be loved – follow Princess Charming. Heartless - is like the ones before but without decoration (for longer texts) – still very cute. Free Communication - a surprise.

    Did you ever needed the right font to say:


    I like you

    Kickstarter:
    2011 Typographic Wall Calendar

    Good News: On November 25th 2010 the Kickstarter funding campaign was successful with 205%!



    Screenshot from the Kickstarter Site ↑ The Campaign had many supporters.
    Here are some quotes that I liked very much:

    “…stunning reinterpretation of a calendar is a masterful example
    of how a designer can completely flip a genre signifier on its head.
    Geisler reimagines calendars in order to change the way we visualize time,
    and in turn, redefines what it means to save the date.”

    Mike McGregor,
    Kickstarter, NYC

    “…one-of-a-kind…”
    Armin Vit,
    Quipsologies (former Speak Up) Vol.47 No.60, Austin TX

    “…der minutiöse Wahnsinn, …(der) eher an J. Johns oder
    einen sehr disziplinierten J. Pollock erinnert als an deinen
    normalen Wandkalender.”
    Hans Schumacher,
    slanted.de / projektgrafik.de, Berlin

    Whimsical Musical



    Whimsical Musical is a vivid, hand drawn font with 405 alternate letters, all caps.

    Developed from a lighthearted drawing in my sketchbook saying the German word “MUSIK” cheerfully over and over in twenty vivid variations. Next to it was the date “6th April 2007”. This initial idea has burst into a font that is full of surprises and whimsical turns. It is dynamically suggestive, like music, and humorously chaotic, as in Dada.

    Each uppercase letter is enriched with ten stylistic alternates (OpenType stylistic sets) to create a heap of playful variations amounting to a mountain of possibilities. Recommended for display usage: gonzo headlines, fantastical picturesque covers, extravagant quirky flyers, chichi posters, individual labels and fun logos.

    Speech Bubbles


    The font Speech Bubbles offers a convenient way to integrate text and image. While the font can be used to design comics, it also gives the typographer a tool to make text speak – to give words conversational dynamics and to emphasize visually the sound of the message. The font includes a total of seventy outlines and seventy bubble backgrounds selected from a survey of historic forms. What follows is a discussion of my process researching and developing the font, as well as a few user suggestions.

    My work on the Speech Bubbles font began with historic research. My first resource was a close friend who is a successful German comic artist. I had previously worked with him to transform his lettering art into an OpenType font. This allowed his publishing house to easily translate cartoons from German to other languages without the need to use another font, like Helvetica rounded.

    My friend showed me the most exciting, outstanding and graphically appealing speech bubbles from his library. I looked at early strips from Schulz (Peanuts), Bill Waterson (Calvin & Hobes), Hergé (TinTin), Franquin, as well as Walt Disney. The most inspiring was the early Krazy Kat and Ignatz (around 1915) from George Herriman. I also studied 1980’s classics Dave Gibbon’s Watchmen, Frank Miller’s Ronin and Alan Moore and David Lloyd’s V for Vandetta. Contemporary work was also a part of my research—likeLiniers from Macanudo and work of Ralf König.

    With this overview in mind I began to work from scratch. I tried to distill the typical essence of each author’s or era’s speech bubbles style into my font. In the end I limited my work down to the seventy strongest images.



    An important aspect of the design process was examining each artist’s speech bubble outlines. In some cases they are carefully inked, as in most of the 80’s work. In others, such as with Herriman, they are fast drawn with a rough impetus. The form can be dynamic and round (Schultz) with a variable stroke width, or straight inked with no form contrast (Hergé). Since most outlines also carry the character of the tool that they are made with, I chose to separate the outline from the speech bubble fill-in or background. 
This technical decision offers interesting creative possibilities. For example, the font user can apply a slight offset from fill-in to outline, as it is typical to early comic strips, in which there are often print misalignments. Also, rather than work in the classic white background with black outline, one can work with colors. Many tonal outcomes are possible by contrasting the fill-in and outline color.

    The Speech Bubbles font offers a dynamic and quick way to flavor information while conveying a message. How is something said? Loudly? With a tint of shyness? Does a rather small message take up a lot of space? The font’s extensive survey of historic comic designs in an assembly that is useful for both pure comic purposes or more complex typographic projects. Use Speech Bubbles to give your message the right impact in your poster, ad or composition.

    Zebramatic – A Lettering Safari



    Zebramatic is a font for editorial design use, to create headlines and titles in eye-catching stripes. Constructed to offer flexible and a variety of graphical possibilities, Zebramatic type is easy to use. The font is offered in three styles: POW, SLAM and WHAM. These styles work both as ready-made fonts and as patterns to create unique, individualized type. The font design’s full potential is unleashed by layering glyphs from two or all three styles in different colors or shades.

    Working with the different styles I was reminded of the late Jackson Pollock poured paintings—in particular the documentation of his painting process by Hanz Namuth and Paul Falkernburg in the filmJackson Pollock 51. In Pollock’s pictures the complex allure arises from how he layered the poured and dripped paint onto the canvas. Similar joyful experience and exciting results emerge by layering the different styles of Zebramatic type.

    Texture
    In the heart of the Design is Zebramatics unique texture. It is based on an analog distorted stripe pattern. The distortion is applied to a grade that makes the pattern complex but still consistent and legible. You can view some of the initial stripe patterns in the background of examples in the Gallery.Zebramatic POW, SLAM and WHAM each offer a distinct pallet of stripes—a unique zebra hide. POW andWHAM use different distortions of the same line width. SLAM is cut from a wider pattern with thicker stripes. The letter cut and kerning is consistent throughout styles.

    Design Concept
    Attention-grabbing textured or weathered fonts are ideal for headlines, ads, magazines and posters. In these situations rugged individuality, letter flow, and outline features are magnified and exposed. Textured fonts also immediately raise the design questions of how to create alignment across a word and deal with repeated letters.

    Zebramatic was conceived as an especially flexible font, one that could be used conveniently in a single style or by superimposing, interchanging and layering styles to create a unique type. The different styles are completely interchangeable (identical metrics and kerning). This architecture gives the typographer the freedom to decide which form or forms fit best to the specific project.

    Alignment and repetition were special concerns in the design process. The striped patterns in Zebramatic are carefully conceived to align horizontally but not to match. Matching patterns would create strong letter-pairs that would “stick out” of the word. For example, take the problematic word “stuff”. If Zebramatic aligned alphabetically, the texture of S T and U would align perfectly. The repeated F is also a problem. Imagine a headline that says »LOOK HERE«. If the letters OO and EE have copied »unique« glyphs – the headline suggests mass production, perhaps even that the designer does not care. Some OpenType features can work automatically around such disenchanting situations by accessing different glyphs from the extended glyph-table. However these automations are also repeated; the generated solutions become patterns themselves.

    Zebramatic Matrix

    Zebramatic Matrix - (click to enlarge)

    Flip and stack
    To master the situation described above, Zebramatic offers a different programmatic practice. To eliminate alphabetic alignment, the letters in Zebramatic are developed individually. To avoid repetition, the designer can flip between the three styles (POW, SLAM, WHAM) providing three choices per glyph.Stacking layers in different sequences provides theoretical 27 (3*3*3) unique letterforms. A last variable to play with is color (i.e. red, blue, black).

    The design is robust and convenient. The font is easily operated through the main font panel (vs. the hidden sub-sub-menu for OpenType related features). The process of accessing different glyphs is also applicable in programs that do not support OpenType extensively (i.e. Word or older Versions of Illustrator).

    International Specifications
    Zebramatic is ready for your international typographic safari. The font contains an international character set and additional symbols – useful in editorial and graphic design. The font comes in OpenType PostScript flavored and TrueType Format.

    Ciseaux Matisse

    nivo slider image nivo slider image nivo slider image nivo slider image

    Ciseaux Matisse was inspired by the exhibition Drawing With Scissors, which I visited at the Kunsthalle Schirn in my hometown of Frankfurt am Main in 2003 and the book Jazz published in 1947 by Henri Matisse.

    Admittedly, before that time I wasn’t a fan of Matisse’s work, neither his late nor the early work. That definitely changed after the exhibition. While his motifs have been overused on postcards and mouspads, in front of the originals you forget those tiny pictures. Some of the works were massive—larger than 24ft. By cutting directly into the color Matisse created shapes with strong dynamics.

    Years later, in 2007, I used that inspiration to cut an exclusive font for a newspaper that I designed at that time (see Ciseaux Matisse in use pictures). Later I developed that font into the four styles featured here.

    The cut-out style is a paper cutout; boxed is the paper background. Both linear and boxed linear have no curved outlines, so they are more aggressive.

    As drawing with scissors implies, all characters are cut by hand. With only uppercase letters, this font is designed for editorial use: headlines, slogans in ads, or musical usage in posters and flyers that need the little touch of the jazz scissors.

    In special cases the lowercase letters contain alternate shapes to the uppercase forms.

    The font-family comes with four styles: cut out, cut out linear, boxed and boxed linear.

    They don’t care that you’re a vegetarian. Delicate white plate with handwritten blue calligraphy and triple gold trim on bavarian porcelain.

    The plate is plain white, with two gold bands and a gold rim. Simple and delicate.

    I’m a typographer and the plate is part of an ongoing research I’m doing about how writing and images are used on tableware. It started when i continuously had to look at the ikea logo at the the cheap glasses in my studio after finishing a drink. Then i realized that there is on almost everything a logo, typography, images that subtle but constant deliver information.

    Typographic Keyboard Wall Calendar

    Thanx for sharing! You’re awesome!


    Update: The Typographic Wall Calendar 2011 and 2010 can be purchased here → http://haraldgeisler.com/order-prints/.

    The Typographic Wall Calendar is about the act of notating time in order to organize it. While calendars nowadays are typically used to optimize personal potential by marking events and managing interaction with others, this calendar offers a view on the managing of time itself.

    What the Press says:
    “This keyboard calender by Harald Geisler has us wondering why we don’t keep calenders around the office anymore? Oh right, it’s 2010. Well, we figure a calender better be pretty unbelievable to have us putting away Google Calender, and this one really is. Made up of thousands of keyboard keys, this calender depicts the date in simple, effective, straightforward, yet dizzying way…” says Xiaoli Li from Formatmag.
    Typographic Keyboard Wall Calendar - Harald Geisler

    This is the wall calendar for the year 2010.
    It’s made of two thousand and ten keyboard keys.

    This design offers a new visual experience of time, differently than your average wall calendar. It looks beautiful on the wall, and makes finding dates and marking events a creative process.

    The size of the print is B0 70cm x 100cm (27.56″ x 39.37″).



    The printing is done with a standard 4c offset printing machine on 135g/m² glossy paper, finished with a UV coating to protect the colors from bleaching. The UV coating also provides protection against water and dust.



    The keys are arranged by hand and photographed line-by-line to achieve high resolution and minimize the barrel distortion caused by the cameras lens. The result is a gigantic image of 323 Megapixel (15119 x 21378 px, 1,83 GB Photoshop RGB).

    The Typographic Keyboard Wall Calendar is about the act of notating time in order to organize it. While calendars nowadays are typically used to optimize personal potential by marking events and managing interaction with others, this calendar offers a view on the managing of time itself.

    Past Forward
    The ancient Egyptians oriented themselves in time by imagining the past before their eyes and the future behind their backs. In contemporary culture we tend to structure ourselves the other way around – looking towards the future ahead and the past behind. A calendar displays both the future and the past in front of us. It is a notation form that functions as a tool, an instrument for organizing, managing and imagining oneself in interaction with the world. Early Western calendars were holiday calendars that marked holy days. They were not a vehicle for measuring time, but rather a medium for arranging religious actions. Religious calendars were used cyclically — read over and over again like a mantra. The development of the calendar from the notation of religious events to a premise for personal management reflects the changing position of individuals in Western society and their increasing self-awareness. Unlike religious calendars, personal calendars are linear. They enable referencing the personal past to design the personal future. Both systems can be used to locate the present. In both the future becomes past, but only in the religious calendar does the past become the future again.

    Writing With Keys
    The Typographic Keyboard Wall Calendar is an image and a written text at the same time. The picture contains 2010 keyboard keys. [The keys are arranged like text; treated like letters the arrangement of keys become a picture.] Working typographically I treated the Gregorian calendar as a text and considered the writing of time by assembling the keys of this calendar dictation into a picture. My medium of keys emphasizes the treatment of writing in contemporary society, where a keyboard is the writing implement. [The calendar is marked with the keys that would be used to print or write it- showing the tool used to create text rather than the outcome of using the tool.]

    The image of the keyboard key suggests the possibility of action. Keys are meant to be pressed. We press the button labeled “A” and an „a“ appears on the screen or paper. We hit the return key and a process in the machine starts – i.e. the carriage moves from the right to the left or a program is executed. The results of key actions, not the keys themselves, are meant to be read.

    The design prompts a series of questions. First, what is it [the picture]? Is it just keys or is it something else? The different colors seem to follow a secret code that contains information. Once that information is recognized to be a calendar, the question becomes how to act with it. Does the usage of this calendar relate to how calendars or how keyboards are typically used? Do I have to press a series of keys to mark an event?

    The picture becomes a movement instruction. An instruction that is imaging the reading of the writing of a normal calendar from beginning to end of a Year. It is no longer a list of holydays but an instruction to re-create a written calendar.

    Time Maps
    A calendar is a special approach to time. A map structures space—makes it accessible to particular operations. A calendar works similarly. It divides time into pieces. It sets marks and generates distances. Calendars make time frameable, measurable and tradable. It makes the future planable and predictable. How could a day be planed if it wasn’t divided into hours or daytimes?

    The structure of calendar time is expressed by its geometrical structure. Duration is mapped to distance. Events expressed in area. I still remember how time was constructed for me in elementary school. Each semester we created a weekly plan. The grid moved one unit at a time, left to right, from Monday to Friday. The school hours (each 45 minutes) spanned one unit each from the top of the paper to the bottom. The week went by, left to right, and then started over again. It was a strange outcome–quadrants and intervals in a special map-like experience of the week.

    Time is not modeled accurately by a calendar; each calendar transports a vision or a cultural attitude towards time. My elementary school calendar was designed according to tabular thinking. Historically tables were used to compare lists of information and to make calculations within lists. As such they were essential to the advent of trade–to organizing and running warehouses. In the table is the ghost of calculus. All basic mathematical operations are connected to operations with tables of information. Tables were used to gain trading potentials. Better knowledge of warehouse inventory lead to more appropriate prices on the market. So the structure of the table refers to calculation, to the organization of goods, merchandise, or wares. By teaching children to use a table to organize time, they become part of a modern cultural heritage of treating time like commodity.

    There are many subtleties in the geometrical visualization of time—in time design. When twelve o’clock Monday is put next to twelve o’clock Tuesday it creates a visual relation which does not exist temporally.

    In most common calendars Saturday and Sunday are put together as one unit (i.e. on one page or section size of one business day). Why is that done? Because these days are commonly without value for trading related actions or are not processable within a trade-related structure or system (i.e. family, religion, social relations, shopping for food). But if time becomes, through structure (in this case a calendar) a tradable merchandise or good, is that not contradictory to how time is experienced? Time is perceivable only in the present. Plans and prediction of future that might come real in the present, but they are not part of presence. Also there is no past that becomes present—just memories and recordings of the past that are remembered in the present but not relived. Whether we plan ahead or remember the past it relates to our direct and immediate being.

    A calendar helps us to orient in time by remembering the past, planning the future and to put both in a context to locate the presence. The process of orientation is, for some people, an act of imagination with the past behind you and the future in front of you. The Typographic Keyboard Wall Calendar similarly requires orientation in a flow. The calendar happens only when you see yourself in front the calendar. The view of putting keyboard keys next to each other is an instruction to do a movement in the operation of writing in which you mark or process time.
