PreussType : type design and font development since 1996
PreussType is an independent font foundry dedicated to create unique and contemporary typefaces. PreussType is Ingo Preuss (in German: with this wonderful character... Ingo Preuß).

Extensive multilingual text fonts and historical typefaces with emphasis on those of the Baroque are two specialities in my portfolio. Not to forget some experiments and DisplayFonts.
