Intervention for the Documentation Centre Hamburg
Documentation Centre Hamburg – typographic mural The wall of solid, greenish-grey steel plates behind the central reception counter bears an initially enigmatic pattern of punched-out capital letters. They are alphabets in a continuous, regularly arranged row. The letters can be individually backlit. An algorithm makes new letters appear alternately and time-delayed. Over the course of 24 hours, the names of all the Jews, Roma and Sinti deported from this station become visible. The ornamentation of the letters thus comes to life, inviting us to look, to decipher and to play with our perception. The emphasis on the individual and the persistent rhythm of appearance and disappearance symbolically rebels against forgetting and reminds us of what happened at this place.
Finissage – Roger Boltshauser Response – Fakultät für Architektur und Stadtplanung, Stuttgart

Preisverleihung – Internationale Bodensee Konferenz IBK – Förderpreis 2022
I was pleased to write and read the laudation for Fabian Harb as a member of the jury. Congratulations to Farbian Harb from Dinamo Typefaces. Great achievement!
Design in the aftermath
Fabian Harb often starts from neutral, sans-serif typefaces. With surprising interventions in the usual repertoire of forms, he creates new complex typeface families, for example compositions in the style of “Bauhaus meets Cowboy”. He is interested in the interplay between image and information, between programme and variability, between form and material. This results in complex notations for playful, but by no means formalistic approaches. For all the joy of experimentation, it is not a formal end in itself, but the unerring application that is ultimately the focus of this design. In cooperation with artists and designers, design solutions and objects are created for an illustrious, international group of clients, which, despite their visual range, reveal a fantastic and consistent language of design.
We are now part of MA-g The Museum of Avant-garde contemporary collection.
We are honored that our artworks will be kept in the Museum’s archives and displayed in future exhibitions. Thanks to MA-g The Museum of Avant-garde
