neue Network

We prefer loose heterogeneous networks over rigid monolithic structures. We believe in organizations as organisms: for each project our network clusters into effective units to serve your specific needs. Therefore we entertain close business relationships to highly skilled and highly experienced type designers in numerous geographies who consult us on non-Latin type design such as Arabic, Cyrillic, Chinese, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Thai and more.
