Typejockeys for Marc O’Polo


We had the opportunity to design a couple of T-shirt prints for German fashion label Marc O’Polo. The collection is under the motto Natural Evolution and produced out of organic cotton. The first two designs are a combination of earthy hand lettering and copperplate engraving collages.






The T-shirts are available online and in every Marc O’Polo retail shop.

Trapl wine


Johannes Trapl is an established wine maker. Located in Stixneusiedl, he is successfully selling his award winning wines from California to Australia. Paying attention to every detail of wine making – up to his close relation to earthworms – is Johannes Trapl’s daily business. For his top product range he only went for the best. His best grapes season 2011–2012, traditionally stamped by feet. Resulting in seven premium wines, that are his personal statement to how a wine should taste!


Each of the seven labels uses a different complex typographic layout. A ton of handdrawn letters and frames adds to the rich details that make these bottles a pleasure to explore. Much like the complex notes, that a wine lover will appreciate about these wines. 


Even though, every wine has its own layout, the design concept is the same, producing a homogenous range, that is immediately recognizable in every wine rack.

Complementary wine boxes were designed to round up the whole product experience.


Trapl wines were awarded with the Joseph Binder Award 2014, category package design.

Typejockeys for Nevertheless


We are really proud to be part of Nevertheless magazine’s issue 8! Thanks to atelier olschinsky for bringing that thing (you cannot call it magazine, nor catalog … it’s rather a T H I N G) into being! 

Nevertheless – the passion archive for places, spaces, art, work, people, projects, reading, writing, design, photo, graphic and illustration.


Our article starts with our motto: “Always work and think whole hearted. With or without serif.”, hand-drawn and especially made for this purpose. The scribbled version was not intended to be printed, but since it was looking so nice, natural and personal, we thought it fit perfectly.



Our eight page feature also includes a spread of letterings, as well as specimen pages of all of our type families.


Issue 8 not only features Typejockeys, but also atelier olschinsky / Siggi Hofer / Julian Palacz / Anna Paul / Wolfgang Ortner & Mark Sengstbratl / Susann Körner / Christoph Ruprecht / Mathias Klos / Judith Nika Pfeifer / Laurent Bompard / Lukas Meschik / Thomas Albdorf / Katja Stuke & Oliver Sieber / Andreas Jakwerth / Martin Stöbich / Davor Gromilovic / Christian Reichhold / Lukas Dostal / Coma Studio / Büro für Mehr / Mark Neuner / Kohlmaier Wien / boicut / Katokami / Curio & Co. / David Mascha / Joluvian / Artuur Vandekerckhove / Peter Diamond / Stadtalphabet Wien

PAGE magazine uses Ingeborg


PAGE is the biggest graphic design magazine in Germany as well as other German-speaking countries. It was relaunched in june 2014, with a complete redesign using Typejockey’s Ingeborg very prominently for headlines, quotes and italics.









PAGE seems to like Ingeborg so much, they even sneaked our serif heart in! *brofist*

Scheiß’ da nix!


After last year’s submission, we were again invited to take part in the stamp design competion by Die Presse and the Austrian post office. We were just informed that our submission didn’t make it to the final round. We still want to share it with you.

The topic was “Austria is moving after all”. We found this quirky Austrian saying, using a bit of a swear word in the beginning: “Scheiß’ da nix, sonst reißt a nix.” Freely translated: “Get your buttocks moving, or you won’t make it.

For those of you reading German, here is the full submission text:
Dies ist keine Aufforderung zu rücksichtslosem Verhalten, sondern ein Zuspruch sich am Fortschritt zu beteiligen. Initiatives Handeln als Gegenpol zur Mawuascht-Mentalität. Eine Ermutigung an sich zu glauben. Hinter Werten, Meinungen, neuen Ideen zu stehen – sich zu bewegen, um zu bewegen. Keine Angst zu haben, ins kalte Wasser zu springen. Andere zu bestärken, zu unterstützen und gemeinsam Neues zu entwickeln. Veränderung passiert sowieso, umso schöner wenn man sie mitgestalten darf!
