“Lichtspielhaus” is a ultra condensed Lichtspiele Spin-Off with 8 weights. It still transports you back to a time where neon lights and marquee letters decorated cinema facades. “Lichtspielhaus Handmade” is a handwritten variation of Lichtspielhaus. Influenced by the hand-painted signs on cinema facades of the early cinema days, Lichtspielhaus Handmade comes with 4 weights.
“Lichtspielhaus”, “Lichtspielhaus Handmade” and “Lichtspielhaus Slab” are three typefaces of the Type Noir Quadrilogy. Part 4: “Lichtspielhaus Plakat” is available only on Floppy Type.
Lichtspielhaus, Lichtspielhaus Handmade and Lichtspielhaus Slab were designed in 2014 by Stefan Hübsch, son of a sign painter. He studied communication design and is currently working as a freelance graphic designer, typographer and independent photographer.
