My name is Mark Frömberg and I am a Berlin-based typeface designer, tool developer and illustrator.
In 2014 I received my master in TypeMedia at the Royal Academy of Arts in Den Haag, Netherlands.
Before that, I made my BA in Communications Design at the University of Applied Sciences (Berlin 2012) where I focused on type and illustration which never happened to detach since.
Working as an independent designer since 2008, I like to combine systematical structure with unpredictable moments.
Usually, I disguise complexity behind a clear decency with a strong, saucy wink, augmenting the outcome with multiple layers to discover over time.
