Stefan Claudius has been working as a graphic and type designer since 2000 and started the Cape Arcona Type Foundry with co-founder Thomas Schostok in 2002. Next to that he teaches at different German Universities.
As Stefan studied Industrial Design at the Universities of Wuppertal and Essen in Germany, we wonder how he ended up as a typographer. The fonts by Cape Arcona have a typical visual style and are standing out in the overall serious type world. We ask why they are so attracted by this look of imperfection. Stefan also tells us about their plans to set up a new foundry for their more serious typefaces, but they still miss a proper name for it. So if you have a good suggestion you are more than welcome to send us an email! Recorded at the 20plusX 2011 Symposium in München, Germany.
