»Lichtspiele Reklame« is the ultra condensed version of Lichtspiele inspired by the 1920s — the golden age of cinema — where neon lights and marquee letters decorated cinema facades.
»Lichtspiele Reklame« is crafted for large narrow formats and contains the display font and two italics (italic & contra-italic), like in these 20s, a time where Movie announcements were shown on huge so called Litfaßsäulen.
»Lichtspiele Reklame« was designed between 2012 and 2016 by Stefan Hübsch, son of a sign painter. As a freelance graphic designer and typographer he is working at the Typocalypse headquarters Kiosk N°13.
Stefan Hübsch co-founded Typocalypse — Type Foundry and typographic collective — together with Kai Merker and Sven Fuchs back in 2008.
