New Project on Kickstarter Gold.


Dear Backer,

A few months ago Kickstarter invited me to develop a new project for their special anniversary, and I have put together one about the letter exchange between Sigmund Freud and Albert Einstein on the topic WHY WAR, which happened exactly 85 years ago. 

Today I am proud to share this project with you:






While you already have the Sigmund Freud Typeface, perhaps you would like to follow this project, and receive copies of the letters? I could also use your help in spreading work about the project to others. So please feel free to forward this to others. Thanks once more for supporting the Sigmund Freud Typeface project. Without that, this new development would not be possible!




Re-download the Sigmund Freud Typeface again - Verification links work again!


Dear Backer,

A while ago I send out emails with account data and a verification link. This information allows you to login to and then re-download the Sigmund Freud Typeface font.

Unfortunately the verification links expired 24 hours after they were send out. This issue has now been solved. 

If you missed verifying your account within 24 hours simply follow these steps to manually verify your account and download the font:

1. Log into using the login name and password provided to you in the initial email from

2. Click on the link to send a fresh (24h valid) verification link.

3.  A green message will tell you if your action was successful:

4. Click the link in your verification email and you will reach this screen, then click view Details and Downloads 

5. Success use the links at the bottom to download the Sigmund Freud Typeface file to your desktop or iPhone / iPad. (The image shows the Albert Einstein font, your account will show the Sigmund Freud Typeface)

 I hope this information was helpful to you.


PS: The Sigmund Freud Typeface and Albert Einstein font are available as PDF Vouchers. The perfect gift for a typography loving friend or colleague. 

The vouchers are immediately available after purchase and can be printed or send through email to your presentee.

Success! Account emails are send out.


Dear Backer,

Success! I just wanted to let you know that all emails regarding your login to re-download the Sigmund Freud Typeface are send out incl. verification links. 

If you have not received your log-in and verification email by now, please check your spam folder. Sometimes automated emails go there. 

If you can't find your information there either, please contact me through Kickstarter, send me a mail or use this contact form:

Thank you,


A small advertisement: if you're enjoying the font, maybe you are interested in gifting the Sigmund Freud Typeface or the latest Albert Einstein font to a colleague or friend? 

Font Gift Cards / Vouchers are 19€ (ca. US$20) at


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.
