FontFabrik® is a trademark of Luc(as) de Groot’s Berlin-based design studio making fonts, letters and typography in the broadest possible sense. Most of FontFabrik®’s work has focused on creating original typefaces for the retail and custom markets at the highest levels of design and technical quality. FontFabrik® has also been commissioned to improve on many existing typefaces, too.
Luc(as) de Groot is the professor for type design at the FH Potsdam University of Applied Sciences. Born and raised in the Netherlands, he has lived in Berlin since 1993 and is known as the creator of typefaces like Corpid, JesusLovesYouAll, Koning, Nebulae, Spiegel, Sun, Taz, TheAntiqua, TheMix, TheSans, TheSansMono, TheSerif and others. These retail fonts are all sold by his company LucasFonts GmbH, also based in Berlin. De Groot’s most famous custom fonts are Calibri and Consolas – designed for Microsoft – which most computer users have pre-installed in their operating systems. This website is a portfolio for many of his projects.
