Ferdinand Ulrich loves type and the stories fonts tell. In his studio in Berlin he designs publications and font samples. He also studies and writes about typography and design, and focuses in particular on the theory of design of the 1920s and 1930s. For some time he has been studying an extraordinary exclusive font made by Hermann Zapf. In Berlin Ferdinand Ulrich is also an assistant of Erik Spiekermann, which helps him satisfy his hunger for typographic knowledge in a considerable library of font samples. Since 2012, he has been a lecturer for Editorial Design and artistic assistant of Prof. Anna Berkenbusch at the Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle. Ulrich gives speeches on his research projects and writes book and type reviews.
