    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.

    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


    Well here it is. It’s called Light Hearted.

    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

    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.
