Nils is co-Founder of TypeMates. He is focused on extending the typeface collection and implementing letter shapes with ease.
Ever since he was a child, Nils has been captivated by graffiti and this early fascination bloomed into a love of letterforms. Pursuing this interest, Nils completed his studies at Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel, and his master’s degree in the postgraduate Type and Media course in The Hague. He worked at Bureau ErlerSkibbeToensmann in Hamburg and contributed to the new corporate typeface of the German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung.
