Tags in Neukölln – full of deep meanings … There was someone who actually doesn’t know how to write Neukölln. It has nothing to do with town Köln (Cologne) in the west of Germany.
Ik hou van jou, mooi Amsterdam
coffee and vaseline
tipografía en Barcelona
Walking through Barcelona by 36 degrees is exhausting … but at least you could see some beautiful lettering, quirky store fronts and art from Joan Miró.
My second time in Leipzig and it still won’t be my last. Similar to the post I did about Neukölln (Berlin), there are a few vandalized expressions from Saxony.
from a to z
These yummie gingerbread cookies are beautiful! Sadly they lack some letters of the alphabet … I got them from a swedish furniture departement store – ring any bells?
On my search for food at Marks&Spencer in Glasgow, I got sidetracked by the packaging of „reduced fat crisps“. This type is so curly, full of contrast and look at the lovely ampersand …
scottish pub boards
During travelling through Scotland, I spotted some skillful lettered boards. I came across them in Edinburgh, Inverness and Glasgow. Would be nice, if the German „Kneipe“ makes also this effort in promoting their booze.
chalk & books
During my lunchbreak I spotted in the streets of Mitte two wonderful lettered chalkboards. They belong to the book store Hundt Hammer Stein, who is located in Alte Schönhauser Straße (2 minutes by walk from U8-station Weinmeisterstraße). Check it out if you’re around in the fancy, central district of Berlin.
Poetry Neukölln // Part 1
When I walk through the southern district of Berlin, there’s much to see. The messages are usually written in capitals with a concluding exclamation mark(!). Warning: could contain inappropriate content …
amsterdam: type & bikes
Exploring Amsterdam in the golden autumn was marvelous. I will definitively return next year to this place – eating some bitterballen with mustard, improving my Dutch and riding a bicycle.
comme ci, comme ça
My personal „Tour de France“ – Aix-en-Provence, Lyon, Paris and Lille in 7 days …

Made for love letters …
Have a look at these beautiful letter slots that I photographed in France and England.
Kerning would be lovely …
It’s not the most important thing in the world but sometimes it hurts my eyes.
Letters of Leipzig
Leipzig by bike is a good idea – of course if the weather is lovely … On my way through the city I spotted some typography in inscriptions, posters and chalkboards.
Leipziger Typotage 2014
The 20th Leipziger Typodays: A good reason to make a trip to Leipzig. Here some impressions from the lectures and the location (Museum für Buchdruckkunst).
At „Small Caps“ – a little Letterpress Studio in Berlin, I joined a workshop. We were printing on a Adana 8×5 and it was so much of fun! Thanks a lot to Sabrina Sundermann.
19th century alphabets
Last summer, I joined my flatmate on a trip to the UdK-library. Photographing was forbidden, but when I discovered this book, I had to shoot some pages.
Oslo: Lettering with Chalk
In February, I made a little trip to Norway to visit a friend of mine. While walking on the streets I noticed a lot of chalkboards with interesting lettering.
Hearts … full of Caffeine
Latte art is a method of preparing coffee created by steamed milk into a shot of espresso. Beneath my Freelancing, I work also as a barista in a little café. The shots are from different places in Berlin.
In Winter, I joined a lettering workshop with Martina Flor. Here are some impressions …
Here some shots from the Grand Re-Opening of the Buchstabenmuseum. After moving from Alexanderplatz to their new place (near U-Bahn-Station Jannowitzbrücke), they opened the museum on the 6th of December 2013.
