Felix Bonge was born in 1982 in Hamburg, Germany. He got first in touch with type design in 2005, studying Communication Design at the HAW Hamburg. From the second semester on he was hooked on type, thanks to Jovica Veljović and his type design class. Having had some experience with calligraphy before, this was a totally new and exciting insight into the world of letter shapes. From then on he further specialized in typography and type design, leading up to his first commercial release, Levato. Since 2012 he teaches type design at the HAW Hamburg and is part of the design studio allerzeiten, where he works on everything type-related and draws new typefaces in the meantime.
