Mika Mischler and Nik Thoenen both attended the Schule für Gestaltung in Biel, where they studied Graphic Design. In 2007, they founded the independent font platform Binnenland.ch. Mika currently lives and works as an independent designer in Bern, Switzerland and Nik in Vienna, Austria.
Mika and Nik tell us how they met and started Binnenland. We also hear why they’ve chosen this name for the foundry. Next to that they give us an insight on how they work together on their projects. Since they work so well together, we wonder if they could imagine to design without each other. We also talk about plans for the future and hear the story behind the Korpus font. We end the interview by asking if they sometimes have totally different views on the design and wonder what happens when they really don’t agree on something… Recorded at the 20plusX 2011 Symposium in München, Germany.
