The Cutting Edge of Type Technology // URW++ Hamburg, Germany
Being in collaboration with URW++ for along time, we are very proud that we could produce this film.

The URW++Film was made in the summer of 2014 and it gives insight in the (philosophy behind the) production of highly professional fonts and font-development tools by URW++ in Hamburg. The very experienced experts talking in the film like Dr. Jürgen Willrodt, Head of Technology at URW++, belong to the small group of pioneers that stood at the cradle of digital type with the Ikarus format in the second half of the 1970s. Together they have more than 100 years of experience in type design and type technology, as is mentioned by Peter Rosenfeld, who is Head of Sales and Marketing.
