Evangelisches Frankfurt is now typeset in Sindelar

It is always great to see when one of our typefaces perfectly contributes to a great work of design. With this newspaper that’s really the case: Evangelisches Frankfurt is the newspaper of the Protestant Church in Frankfurt. It was designed by German newspaper designer Jan Famira.

The newspaper gets published five times a year and is sent to all Protestants living in Frankfurt free of charge. It seems the newspaper’s new design has easily convinced the audience as the post by a regular reader suggests: »The new design is really well done, very beautiful, appealing, and lively. Thanks a lot for that!« As a foundry we obviously believe that Sindelar, the newspaper’s new text face, plays a major role in this respect.

Sindelar succeeds at the German Design Award 2016

Great news from Frankfurt again: We were honoured by winning another well-respected design award for Sindelar last weekend: The German Design Award 2016.

This award is a strong acknowledgement for the work being done at Willerstorfer Font Foundry and a great motivation for designing even more font families of that outstanding quality.

If you happen to be in Frankfurt during the next two weeks: Don’t miss the exhibition of all winning entries in the German Design Award’s category of Excellent Communication Design at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst. The vernissage took place on the 12th of February and the exhibition will be shown from the 13th to the 28th of February 2016.

Sindelar wins a DDC Award in Frankfurt

The success story continues: On the 4th of December at the Industrie- und Handelskammer (the former stock exchange building) in Frankfurt it became official that Sindelar is a winning entry in the renowned design competition Gute Gestaltung 16 (Good Design 16). The design competition is traditionally organised by the DDC (Deutscher Designer Club) and is divided in different categories.


Sindelar succeeded in the Excellent Arts category and expands our trophy collection by the renowned DDC Award. I personally enjoyed the award ceremony and the pre-Christmas atmosphere in Frankfurt a lot.
