The designer: Hannah Rabenstein
"My fascination with letters began just before my design studies in Nuremberg and is still going strong more than 11 years later.
In this time I’ve come to recognise the beauty of our 26 letters and our numbers with their many details and characteristics, and they’ve quickly become the focus of my work.
My studies, in which I specialised in typography, allowed me to take this fascination further and expand my knowledge, and I became a true lettering aficionado.
For more than seven years now I have worked as a freelancer doing lettering, calligraphy, graffiti and graphic design, and I can definitively say: I can’t imagine anything better!
The multifaceted nature of working with letters makes every project exciting: Whether it’s designing logos, doing classic work on paper, designing large-scale shop windows, walls, tables or even properties, combining digital and analogue, working with a variety of techniques and tools – every project has its own challenges. The world of (hand) writing is virtually boundless and omnipresent. That’s what my life is like, too: Letters are not only the focus of my work, but also of my free time. They have and will always have my unabashed enthusiasm and love."
