About the gallery:
Opening in May 2011, our gallery exists to showcase type, letters, and typography in both art and design. We have a wide range of future exhibitions to curate and host with the goal of both supporting the Berlin type scene while expanding appreciation and interest of letterforms to a wider public.

This exhibition exists to celebrate the diversity of Berlin’s surprisingly large type community. We have paired the typefaces of 27 Berlin-based type designers with the work of 27 local illustrators/designers/artists. This relatively small collection features the work of a wide variety of individuals—from life-long designers to recent graduates and from design ‘celebrities’ to students. Most participants are employed full time as type/graphic designers or illustrators, but for some, their work represented here is more of a passionate side project. Through these images, one can easily appreciate the diversity of the local design scene and a taste of the current visual gestalt.
