Heimat Berlin creates found typeface from graffiti of the Berlin Wall

To honour the 30th anniversary of the Berlin Wall coming down, Heimat Berlin have created a typeface in the style of real graffiti found on the Berlin wall at the time.

You can create your own messages of freedom (or whatever you want!) using their online editor – voiceofthewall.com

“I think the most important message we want to share is to make people more aware that freedom is not given. We should never take it for granted. We have to fight for it every single day,”

Matthias Storath, Chief Creative Officer at Heimat Berlin

“We hope the typeface is a fitting testament to the people of Berlin and beyond who experienced the wall in their daily lives – and of course all the people who used it as a canvas for their own messages of hope and protest.”

Matthias Storath, Chief Creative Officer at Heimat Berlin
