Michi will be in Vorarlberg on friday and saturday to give a lettering workshop. It will be the first in a series called Zeughaus Sessions, orgnanized by our cherished friends from Feldkirch.

The workshop is booked out already, but will keep you posted about upcoming oportunities!

Artwork: Zeughaus



The biggest Austrian online portal for student- and part-time jobs, and its partner company for jobs and flats,, hired us to design their new logotype. Furthermore they let us to breathe in some new life in their branding. We developed a consistent style concept including some important parameters such as colors for all their communication media in print as well as the softer shades for use in web.


As the new website was updated to a crisp new all responsive, all webfonts design. Parry and Source Sans became the new corporate typefaces.


We gave input for the wording, …


… as well as the pictorial language


The new corporate design was topped off with these icons Stephan drew specially for


Need a job?

With Compliments, Kastner & Öhler


This lettering was made for the shop-window decoration of Kastner & Öhler’s flagship store in Graz. K&Ö beeing one of the oldest and biggest department store chains in Austria. The lettering became the center piece of the brilliant decoration work of Birgit Coyle – whom it was lovely to work with.

Bussi Bussi Bussi


Once more Austria’s daily newspaper Die Presse and the Austrian post office invited graphic designers to design a new stamp for our country. Topic: Forecast 2050

In the past we went from friendly over provocative to gentle, and now, for this year’s topic we go for looove. Visioning the future, our country will be open minded, positive and confident. All people are peaceful and happy, act unprejudicely and appreciative. Our Bussi stamp is an ambassador for these values and should spread them all over Austria, all over the world! Let’s start now and reap at least until 2050!

Ausblick 2050: Österreich – ein selbstbewusstes, positives, offenes Land, in dem jede/r unvoreingenommen, friedlich und freudig ist und man wertschätzend und liebevoll miteinander umgeht. Die Bussis, die man mit dieser Marke verschickt, dienen als „Botschafter“ und Multiplikator dieser Werte. Jetzt beginnen. Morgen und bis mindestens 2050 ernten.



FontCast interview with Michael Hochleitner


David Sudweeks made this FontCast interview with Michael a while ago. He’s talking about how Typejockeys came together, where the name comes from, and who influenced him to become a typeface designer.

Biorama Anniversary Cover


With the current issue Biorama magazine is celebrating its 10th anniversary. For that good reason they let us design their cover. We came up with this idea of an exploding “feiern” (German for “celebrate”) bursting into confetti. Obviously.


Above are some of Thomas’ sketches. Of which the right one became to be the final design. Below are some alternative colors we tried in the design process.


Some color effects take care of the extra punch!


Oh, and we also made an adaption for the iPad magazine version of Biorama.


Thanks to the Biorama team for almost blind trusting us on this one! We wish you all the best for the next ten years! Call us!
