Genesis is a headline script typeface designed in 2017 inspired by Foehn. Foehn is a type of dry, warm, down-slope wind that occurs in the lee (downwind side) of a mountain range. The font specimen contains the first 27 chapters of the original Genesis, inspirations and process images.

Montavon is a Renaissance Revival designed in 2017. The original typeface was found in a book called Benedictus Redivivus. The book was written and published at the place I grew up: Vorarlberg. Benedictus Redivivus could be translated into blessed reincarnation (dt. gesegnete Regenerierung). The original book has been published 1679 by a Swiss Benedictine polymath, Humanist and historical writer Gabriel Bucelin. The details of the typeface seem to have french origins, the punch cutter might have been Simon de Collines, but who knows........asdfjlkasjdflöasdfjlöasdfj!
