Next to monthly lectures, letterspace is a co-working space of three independent type-designers with substantial experience in drawing, producing and engineering typefaces.
After working in-house for big agencies like McCann Erickson, award winning Spanish design studio SeriesNemo and world’s largest font library Monotype, she embarked on an independent journey. Sabina helps brands find their unique voice.
Among the typefaces designed previously, in Barcelona, with SeriesNemo – Aura – was awarded with Gold at Anuaria Spanish design Awards 2016.
Jolana is an Amsterdam-based Czech designer with a keen interest in foreign scripts and variable font possibilities. After finishing her studies at UMPRUM Prague and GRA Amsterdam, she published her first typeface Gestures at studio Moniker.
While working at Black [Foundry], she designed the custom-made typeface Jott for the eponymous clothing brand in collaboration with Solenn Bordeau which later on won a golden medal at Grand Prix Stratégies du Design 2023.
Jolana currently works for a Berlin-based type foundry NaN. Among other things, she also actively participates in exhibitions and leads workshops for students.
During his studies in Luzern (CH), Edgar developed a strong interest in letterforms. After working as designer in Hamburg, he specialised in type-design during TypeMedia, The Hague and at LucasFont, Berlin.
Working part-time for Bold Monday, the IBM Plex project got Edgar deeper into font engineering including TrueType hinting. He also engineers fonts for Elmer Stefan’s PYTE foundry and the Swiss outlet Nouvelle Noire.
