Letters Are My Friends

Typographic Concept Store in Berlin / All about Type & Tech

Berlin's first typographic concept store in the heart of Berlin Kreuzberg.
Old typography meets new technology.
Designstudio, research lab, showroom, events & inhouse production label.

////////// DETAILED ////////

Letters Are My Friends' is a concept store for typography right in the heart of Berlin Kreuzberg. A place where analogue and digital type meet with emerging technologies.

One part of 'Letters Are My Friends' is a cosy showroom where letter relationships can be experienced in a physical space and progressive way. Use your senses!

We present applied typography in a dazzling variety: peripherical perforated paper projections, spacy letterboxing, type'n'motion voxel folding, 3D ink raycasting, turntypetablelism, dolby surround fatcap-tracking, tasty toasted gpu fonts, trigonometric triangle trading and of course some serious conversations about language, its aesthetics and the future of writing.

Moreover 'Letters Are My Friends' is a research lab and production label run by Ingo Italic and Bärbel Bold. We share an interdisciplinary and experimental approach to services and products related to typography, motion- and interaction design.

We love typefaces - static and generated, still, interactive and in motion, flat and haptic, printed, installed and projected. - And support their connections to art, science and technology.
With 'Letters Are My Friends' we want to explore, initiate and feature projects that push type forward.

We are open for collaborations and commissions.

Typotheque Dance Writer 2, convert text to dance movement


We love stumbling over artefacts of Type & Tech to recognize they are still impressive even though it might passed some years: a great project by Peter Bilak & Lukáš Timulak is the following: how to embody a character? https://stroom.nl/paginas/pagina.php?pa_id=3095385

typotheque.com Inspired by Karel Teige's 'Abeceda' Peter Bilak made Dance Writer, an online application that converts text to simple dance moves. Create your own choreography by typing a message.

Let's see some beauty!

"Baton Turbo is a grotesque that combines a simple straightforward formal approach, with eccentric letter shapes inspired by french vernacular typography. We love the naive and unpretentious elegance of our previously released Baton, but the small x-height and condensed proportions make it very specific: it is essentially intended for display sizes and short texts.

We wanted to adapt Baton into a versatile typeface, while maintaining as much of the original character as possible.

All the design choices — the proportions, the spacing, the number of weights — have been made for Baton Turbo to work well in the various settings that modern typography, both print and digital, present.

Retune Festival 2016


Autumn mood makes us remind last year's Retune Festival, where it was a pleasure to be part of staging our incarnated "sunshine calamari" crab stable (which you can see in the video) along with amazing artists like Moon Ribas, Works of Ryoichi Kurokawa, Martina Menegon, BadaboomBerlin, Quadrature, Dries Depoorter, Tebjan Halm of VVVV - Visual/Textual Development Environment and many more...

Passau Pøsters

Nice type 'n' Motion posters in this project from the south of Germany! Cheeers to the mountains letterfellows Passau Pøsters!

ø ø ø KW_34
Wie die Zeit vergeht. Seit meinem letzen Poster-Post sind nun sechs Wochen vergangen und jetzt möchte ich endlich bekannt geben, dass nach einem Jahr Passau Pøsters das Projekt endet.

Aber dafür gibt es als Abschluss noch ein kleines, aber sehr feines, animiertes Poster-Feuerwerk mit ausgewählten Motiven. Daran haben wir — speziell der abgedrehte Motion-Designer Joey S. Geier — in den letzten Wochen gezerrt, gelooped und gedreht, geschoben, verschoben und verworfen. Und für die extrem coole Musik und den perfekt abgestimmten Sound ist Filmmusiker Andi Pfeiffer verantwortlich. Ich danke beiden sehr für den unermüdlichen Einsatz, ihre Leidenschaft zum Perfekten und ihre Kreativität, die Poster so in Bewegung zu bringen. Es hat wahnsinnig Spaß gemacht mit Euch zu basteln! Danke sehr Johannes und Andi für diese großartige (Zusammen)Arbeit!

Und was sagt ihr dazu? Wenn es euch gefällt, dann liked, teilt und kommentiert was das Zeug hält! Wir würden uns freuen.

Vielen Dank an dieser Stelle natürlich auch an euch, der kleinen Passau-Posters-Fan-Gemeinde. Es war eine tolle Zeit mich euch. Ohne euren Zuspruch und eure Kritik hätte es nur halb soviel Spaß gemacht. Aber bitte: Bleibt der Seite treu, vielleicht ploppt ja doch bald mal wieder ein Passau Poster auf! ;-)
