Erik Spiekermann is one of the best-known typographers and graphic designers in the world. As a teacher and critic who is loved and feared in equal measure, his influence on contemporary graphic design is unparalleled. Spiekermann also represents German typeface and corporate design like no other.
Hello, I am Erik is the first-ever visual biography of Erik Spiekermann’s work. The book documents his projects, traces milestones in his life, and offers his personal perspectives on design. Essays by notable designers and authors provide a framework and further context for this vivid presentation of his body of work.
With his design of guidance systems for the Berliner Vekehrsbetriebe (Berlin’s transportation authority) and Düsseldorf Airport as well as his typeface design for Deutsche Bahn (Germany’s national rail system), Spiekermann made sure that not only Germans could better find their way around. With his corporate identities for brands such as Audi, Volkswagen, and Bosch, he also helped establish a sensibility for corporate design in Germany. Yet Spiekermann has also always worked internationally. He is, to name but one example, responsible for the redesign of the magazine the Economist.
The founder of MetaDesign, FontShop, and EdenSpiekermann has been a successful entrepreneur and impulse generator for decades. When Erik Spiekermann founded FontShop International with his wife Joan and Neville Brody, he helped establish the internet as a source for buying fonts. His typefaces FF Meta and ITC Officina have been bestsellers for years and are already considered modern classics by typographers worldwide. Spiekermann now likes to comment on current developments in the world of design via Twitter, where he has more than 250,000 followers. In 2011, he received the German Design Award for lifetime achievement.
