Font Designer – Carlos Winkow

Carlos Winkow, born 6. February 1882 in Sömmerda, died 16. January 1952, designed Reporter™ in 1938 for the Wagner foundry. The strokes of this interesting script have the texture of dry brushwritten letters. The alignment is slightly irregular, giving it a spontaneous feeling. Reporter # 2 is a slightly simplified version of the original Reporter, without the numerous small white strokes inside its stems, which gave the original a scribbly effect. The font is bold and informal; it works well in signs, posters, and other display uses.

Reporter # 2 is part of the Linotype Library.
