Philip Trautmann

UX-designer, CEO

Hi, I’m Philip! My passion to typography developed in 2016 when I wanted to try out something new. Before I began with type design I was creating layouts, UI/UX design and any work which was somehow related to Photoshop or Illustrator.

I worked together with Chris under the name of „phitradesign“ for many years and then started to study media design in Düsseldorf. At my university I learned a lot about typography and so I began to create own little font projects. First just as a hobby but later I realized that this meant more to me. So that was the time the font foundry was born.

I gained a lot of experience in the last years and I’m looking forward to the many upcoming projects for Shaped Fonts.
