Font Designer – Heinrich Wieynck

The German designer Heinrich Wieynck (born 15. 9. 1874 in Barmen, Germany, died 4. 9. 1931 in Saarow, Germany) created the font Phyllis™ in 1911.

Phyllis font also appeared under the name Wieynck Cursive and was produced in 1911 by the Schriftgiesserei Bauer.
Phyllis is a calligraphic font with slanted serifs. Its lively, generous capitals are a nice contrast to the reserved lower case leters. Distinguishing characteristics are the two-storied a and the forms of the v, w and y.
Heinrich Wieynck expanded Phyllis font with an initialing alphabet of particularly decorative capitals, which will lend any text a graceful elegance.
