Mark Frömberg

Senior Designer, MA in Typeface Design (Type & Media, Den Haag)

Berlin, Germany
I am a native Berlin-based [type] designer and illustrator. In 2014 I received my master in TypeMedia at the Royal Academy of Arts in Den Haag, Netherlands. Before that I made my BA in Communications Design at the University of Applied Sciences (Berlin 2012) where I focused on type and illustration which never happened to detach since. Working as an independent designer since 2008, I like to combine systematical structure with unpredictable moments. Usually, I disguise complexity behind a clear decency with a strong, saucy wink, augmenting the outcome with lots of layers to discover over time.

Oh, and I am also totally into programming with python. Be it for creating my own tools for my workflows or to render generative design output.

Besides a distintive perspicacity in matters of typographic designs one of my particular mannerism shows up in a certain playfulness in my works. Everything I do rests on strong conceptual roots and a heavy curiosity towards all concerns of the current project.
