Hell Design Studio

Rudolf Hell GmbH was founded by Rudolf Hell (1901–2002); the company constructed the world’s first digital typesetter in 1965, the Digiset. Typefaces for this machine were produced in the corporate design studio. Both Gerard Unger and Hermann Zapf were among the designers to work for Hell. In 1990, the company merged with Linotype AG, forming the Linotype–Hell AG corporation.
