Frank Heine (graphic designer)
Frank Heine (* 1964 ; † October 1, 2003 ) was a German graphic and type designer. He completed his studies at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart in 1992 as a graduate designer. Since 1991 , he has designed new typefaces that are sold worldwide by various companies including Emigre , FontShop International and T-26. Together with Lutz Eberle , he founded his own company in 1994, UORG in Stuttgart, which specialized in corporate identity design for companies, posters and brochures for exhibitions and museums.
As a font designer, Heine experimented with a variety of styles. His well-known designs include the playful 1960s style Remedy , Amplifier and the Dalliance, inspired by the handwriting of a 19th century battle card . For the Tribute, a Renaissance Antiqua , Heine used types by the French type cutter François Guyot from the years 1544 to 1557.
As different as Heine's fonts are, they are all characterized by a love of detail and quality. He supplied detailed kerning tables, ligatures and alternative characters for all fonts .
