Once upon a time in Germany there was a magazine which wanted to keep up with the Zeitgeist, the spirit of the time. I, a graphic artist, was there. For the headings I designed >> Die Überschrift (The Heading), a font consisting purely of capital letters. The letters are extremely matter-of-fact, very narrow and very modern, but again, only upper case. A half year later the magazine no longer existed. Left behind was the idea to create a complete font from the successful ”Überschrift,“ a typeface including lower case letters, accents and everything else which belongs.
