Indra Kupferschmid

Typographer, Professor for Typography at HBK Saar (Saarbrücken)

Indra Kupferschmid is a freelance typographer and professor at HBKsaar, University of Arts Saarbrücken. Fueled by specimen books, she is occupied with type around the clock in all its incarnations – webfonts, bitmap fonts, other fonts, type history, DIN committees, writing, design work, and any combination of this. She is co-author of Helvetica Forever by Lars Müller Publishers and wrote Buchstaben kommen selten allein, a typographic reference book (Niggli). She consults for the type and design industry, and other clients who need help choosing fonts, contributes to print- and web projects such as Codex, Smashing Magazine and Fonts In Use, alongside juggling her own small- and ultralarge-scale ventures.
