The TYPO Team likes to look beyond the Tellerrand. So when we heard the announcement of a new typographic venue in June in New York, we were eager to visit the premiere. When we met Frank Grießhammer at Typographics and he offered to write a post for the TYPO Blog, we didn‘t hesitate to accept.
Frank (FF Quixo, HWT Tuscan, Stempel Elan) studied Graphic Design at HBKsaar in Saarbrücken, and at ISIA in Florence, Italy. His graduation project in 2008 led to the creation of “Kiosk Fonts”, an experimental type foundry. An internship at FontShop International brought Frank to the Robothon 2009 conference. There he realized that studying at KABK would be a dream come true. He spent a year in The Hague, and graduated with a Master of Design in Type and Media in 2010. Frank lives in California and has been part of the Adobe Type Team since 2011.
