Design collective Pfadfinderei (in English, “pathfinders” or “home of the scouts”) formed in 1998 and creates visual marketing tools as well handles the realization of events. We offer a full range of design services answering to functional design demands and provide advanced multimedia art. Pfadfinderei is now structured into three main divisions: Corporate Design, Production and Installation.
How would you characterize your design style?
I think I’m a natural drawer by birth. And since I spend a lot of time drawing, I think I just have a good sense and know how things should. It’s probably this ability that gives my graphic design the expression that it has.
Place of Work
Berlin, on the Spree River
Can you give us a short description about your font?
Boxen packs a real punch!
It’s a modern, personal, powerful, racy and happy font with flashy chamfers. The eye catcher and main characteristic eye is the diagonal axis. A strong line lends the font more surface. You could say it has a graceful gauge. The inimitable, homogenous characteristic style gives the font strength. This strength is then softened by the airy wholes, makes it practical for a variety of applications.
Why did you design this font and what was your inspiration?
Boxen was developed for the logo design of a music label called Phisical Music. They wanted something that was full of emtion and sex appeal.
What is the ideal usage of your font?
Boxen is ideal for trademarks. The capitals letters have an X-Height which is an important characteristic in order to design a variety of characters with manifold combinations. And boxen has two weights!
Where does the name come from?
Braten and Boxen have these names, because my friends insisted on it. Real pig heads! To use verbs for proper names is still not very common but I guess this gives you some space to experiment. For example “Bluster“ would be a good one.
Do you think that too many fonts exist?
No. I’ll continue working on making more.
Your future plans?
I’m only 29!
