Twelkmeyer is a recreation of a type 
designed by Victor Twelkmeyer – 
an architect, painter, and professor.




He designed this type studying at 
the VHUTEIN (it was a center for 
three major movements in Russian 
avant-garde art and architecture: 
constructivism, rationalism, and 
suprematism).




Twelkmeyer typeface is a mirror to ​​​​​​​
the Soviet architecture 30's. 
It reflects the impressions from 
Vesnin brothers and Ginzburg's 
works, a curiosity to Bauhaus, 
and the first test of the waters 
of the socialist reconstructions.
