‘Buchstabengewitter’ is a generative typography project that transforms three-dimensional linear structures into the letters of the alphabet. Developed by designer and programmer Ingo Italic, the dynamic type display is only the latest experiment from Letters Are My Friends, a research laboratory he runs together with Bärbel Bold. A place where, as the laser-cut sign outside says, “type meets new technology”.

Letters Are My Friends is a concept store for typography right in the heart of Berlin in Kreuzberg. A place where analogue and digital typography meets with emerging technologies.
