Sorry :-(


Dear Backer,

In the last update I wrote about downloading the Sigmund Freud Typeface in the future. 

Unfortunately the future has not yet arrived fully. The 103 backers from the $20 reward tier have received their verification link and a link to reset their password. And I see that the first backers already activated their accounts. 

Also the emails are not as personally designed as I intended to, but rather uninspired like this:

To top that after verifying your account and setting your password you are redirected to a Wordpress backend - which is not the place to access the Sigmund Freud Typeface.

Instead on click that link in the Top Menu "Re-download a font"


…it seems my Server does not like to import more than 15 users at a time without crashing. So I need to clarify this during the week with my hosting company, because in total there should be 1481 accounts - one for each backer. So far 103 Accounts are created - 1378 are on my to-do list. 

Sorry about the delay, I hope to find a better way around this during the week. I will keep posted.

Stay tuned.

Have a nice Sunday,


Download the Sigmund Freud Typeface in the Future.

Dear Backer,

It has been a while since the last update and hope that you are all well and enjoying writing with the Sigmund Freud Typeface. With this update I wanted to inform you about two new features regarding the Sigmund Freud Typeface. 

1. How to download the latest Version of the Sigmund Freud Typeface

2. Since last week you can get Sigmund Freud Typeface Vouchers / gift-cards

Downloading the Sigmund Freud Typeface in the Future.

In the past months I have been getting more and more emails from backers that lost their copies of the font, for example because they bought a new computer. Instead of answering these emails individually I decided to set up an account system on my website to allow you to log into and download your font whenever you need to. This also allows me also to send you updates of the font through individual emails rather then posting a link online. 

So this will make things easier for you and for me. This is a free service from me to you. To set up and maintain such an account system for thousands of people is actually quite expensive. I will keep up this service as long as possible, of course I can not promise that this exists forever. 

In the next 48 hours you will receive 3 emails.

1. Another email from me send through the Kickstarter mailing system, which informs you about the account system that I am going to set up. This is because not all backers are subscribed to the project updates you are reading right now ;-)

2. An email from my website with a link to verify your account. Please check your SPAM folder - sometimes automated emails go there. This email will look like this: 

Simply click the verification-link this way my website knows that you exist. This will look like this:


3. Another email from my website with your Login-Name and random Password - as well as a link to login to your account. Please check your SPAM folder - sometimes automated emails go there.

 This is what the login looks like:

SUCCESS - After you log in, you will find this screen to download your fonts (in this case the Test account was set up with the Albert Einstein Font). 

You can also change your password as well as link social media accounts like twitter or Facebook for a more convenient login. 

You should receive all these emails by this Sunday evening (February 19). If you haven't please do the following: 

1. Please check your SPAM folder - sometimes automated emails go there.

2. Contact me through Kickstarter, leave a comment to this update or send me a message through my website:

Sigmund Freud Typeface Gift - Card.

Until last week it was rather difficult to give the Sigmund Freud Typeface as a gift to a friend or colleague. On my website ( you can purchase easy to print or e-mail PDF vouchers / gift-cards. The gift cards are instantly accessible after purchase and have a redeemable code with instructions on it. Here is what they look like:


You can also get the Albert Einstein Font as a gift card - just the perfect gift for your physicist friend:


How have you been enjoying the Sigmund Freud Typeface so far? What are your experiences are you running into problems using the font? Let me know in the comments. 

Thank you,


Creators Hangout - Oct 21 2015

Dear Backers,

I wanted to share some exciting news!

Tomorrow Wednesday, October 21st I am going to join a "Kickstarter Creators Hangout". What is a Creators Hangout?

"During the 30-minute hangout, we will ask our guest creator questions that we have collected from our community during the week, and also capture any questions that come in live during the event. Following the hangout, we will post a link to the video from the talk on the same channels we advertised the event on."

It is going to happen at 1pm EDT (19h Frankfurt Time) and here are some official links to the event on Google Plus and Facebook

This will be my first hangout and it would be wonderful if you'd join me in this event - to get into conversation about the project, Kickstarter and typography in general. And since it is online you do not even have to move you can join me from your couch! Hope to see/hear from you.

 PS.: the font used above to write "Creators Hangout…" is the Albert Einstein font.

Albert Einstein is on the way, and Sigmund Freud soon on the iPhone & iPad.
