Philipp Dornbierer

Philipp Dornbierer is a Zurich based illustrator with a passion for mythical creatures. Working mainly in grid systems, Philipp tries to get around having a writers block and creates mythical yet bold illustrations. With that in mind working on a whole font was set in stone. While grocery shopping, a sign about a sale of asparagus led to the inspiration and the Spargel Typeface got to see the light of day. The result is a face that looks great in extended texts: robust but never ungainly or overly dark in colour.
