Information about the typeface designer Felix Braden and his fonts.
Felix Braden was born in Koblenz, Germany. Since he was a boy his biggest passions were drawing and painting, so he decided to study graphic design at the Fachhochschule Trier. During this time he worked with the type designer Jens Gehlhaar, discovered typography, and began to design typefaces.
In 2000 he founded the free-font site Floodfonts with Peter Hoffmann.
After working for five years as an art director for Gaga-Design, Koblenz, he decided to set up his own graphic design studio in Cologne. He now lives in Cologne working as a freelance designer. His typefaces Grimoire and Sadness are available from Fountain.
