The Cape Arcona Type Foundry is an independent type foundry based in Essen/Germany run by Stefan Claudius and Thomas Schostok, founded in 2002 to promote our fonts designed for the legendary PDF magazine »Beast«. We settled in an imaginary country on an island between Europe and America, exactly were we feel home. In order to combine democracy with monarchy we declared themselves King and President. In our work we are aiming for typefaces with a non-conformist personality. Over the years, the field of business expanded from individual typeface design to custom font production, corporate and logo design and complex text-font families. This is the kind of work we love: Thinking beyond the ordinary, imagining better worlds and better fonts.
