“Hello, I am Erik” is the title of Johannes Erler’s monography about the famous art historian, information architect, type designer, and author.

 

Two of his typefaces, FF Meta and ITC Officina, are considered to be modern classics. He founded MetaDesign (1979) and FontShop (1989). He is behind the design of well-known brands such as Audi, Bosch, VW or German Railways and the redesign of publications like The Economist. Erik is also the reason why you don’t get lost in the Berlin underground or Düsseldorf airport, for which he created the information systems. He designed exclusive typefaces for corporations like Deutsche Bahn, Bosch, ZDF, Cisco, Mozilla, and many others.

 

Spiekermann was managing partner and creative director of Edenspiekermann with offices in Berlin, Amsterdam, San Francisco, and Los Angeles until June 2014 when he moved from that position to the supervisory board.
