Nina Stössinger (1978), type-obsessed designer & overall curious person from Basel, Switzerland. Speaks German, English, ok Dutch, bad French; reads Latin and Danish; writes Python and some PHP & JavaScript.
(The preferred form of my last name is Stössinger. Stoessinger is what I use in environments where the umlaut won’t survive.)

Coming from a background in text and the humanities, I studied multimedia design at Burg Giebichenstein HKD Halle, Germany, and type design in Zurich (CAS Type Design) and The Hague (TypeMedia MA). I ran a studio for graphic design and typography in Basel for five years before relocating to the Netherlands in 2013, where I founded Typologic.

My work has been awarded the Certificate of Excellence from the International Society of Typographic Designers, the iF communication design award, the Out of Box Award, & the Award of Excellence from Communication Arts, and exhibited in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, Russia, Australia, & the United States. I have spoken at conferences and events including TYPO Berlin, ATypI, Ampersand, Kerning Conference, TypeAmsterdam, & Design First New York, and taught classes in screen typography (FH Dresden) and Python scripting (ésad Amiens).
