Sebastian Nagel




Austria-based designer of Terra Nova (2005), a gorgeous treasure map typeface based on lettering found on a map of the Americas from 1562 by Diego Gutierrez and the Dutch copperplate engraver Hieronymus Cock. In 2005, he also made Sofa (2005), a slab serif. In 2006, he added the modular dingbat face Sofa and Sofa Italic. Other faces by Nagel include Canapé (a roman, slab serif and sans serif family), Scriptum (a text face), Grass Script (brush based on the hand of Mario Lorenz), Classicismo (a futuristic didone), Space, and Iwan Reschniev (2008, a Bauhaus style geometric face after lettering by Jan Tschichold, 1930).
