Font Designer – André Nossek
The German designer André Nossek created the font Linotype Killer™ in 1997. Linotype Killer is part of the TakeType Library, chosen from contestants of Linotype’s International Digital Type Design Contests of 1994 and 1997. The font seems to describe the Technosound of the 1990s with its electronically produced sights and sounds. It represents repetition, mass production and conformity. The alphabet consists exclusively of capital letters, all based on a rectangular form, all of the same height, and, with the exception of the ’I’, all of the same width. The cool and distant Linotype Killer is best suited to short headlines.best suited to short headlines.
