Frank Grießhammer

Frank Grießhammer is a typeface designer and font tools developer with Adobe Typekit. Frank studied graphic design in Saarbrücken, Germany and in Florence, Italy; and graduated from the Type & Media masters program at KABK The Hague in 2010. After working for FontShop International in Berlin, he has been part of the Adobe Type Team since 2011.

In 2014, Frank has taken over the annual “Adobe FDK workshop Tour” from his colleague Miguel Sousa. Those one-week-long FDK workshops aim at introducing the technical part of creating OpenType fonts to type design students. Building on his workshop material, Frank’s Granshan talk will focus on how the FDK can be used for creating complex-script typefaces.
