Brush 455 font family
Designed by Martin Wilke
Wilke was initially interested in painting, drawing, and typeface design, but his tendency toward typefaces gradually overshadowed the others. Inflation eventually made further study impossible for him. He showed his modest collection of typefaces to Wilhelm H. Deffke, who studied them closely and said, "Look at how you press into the paper..." He had apparently noticed the determination behind Wilke’s efforts. Wilke worked for and with him for two years, and after a year-long assistent position in the studio of Prof. O.H.W. Hadanks, returned for another three years.Ariston® BQ. Before 1939, Wilke also finished the brush typeface Caprice®, and broad-tipped pen typeface Diskus™. After 1945 came the brush typeface Palette® , the script typeface Piccadilly, the broad-tipped pen typeface Berolina™, the sans serif Essentia, the decorative typefaces Moira and Halftone and finally Konzept, written with a felt-tipped pen. The Wilke™ was designed in 1988 and is a transitional serif typeface available in six weights, including small caps for the regular weight.
