Font Designer – Bernd Pfannkuchen
The German designer Bernd Pfannkuchen created Linotype Lichtwerk™. This font is part of the TakeType Library, chosen from the entries of the 1999 International Digital Type Design Contest. The display font Linotype Lichtwerk contains very narrow forms with a high x-height. It is reminiscent of the constructivism of the 1920s and was designed with a small number of basic forms. The high, thin letters form words and an overall picture which almost flickers on the page. Linotype Lichtwerk with its technical look is suited exclusively for headlines.
