Tobias was working as an independent lettering artist and illustrator for several years. His style is mainly influenced by his passion to graphic design and lettering from the early 20th century. During his time as an independent designer he felt it was time consuming and not easy to give each project a satisfying vintage look that clients were looking for. He was not happy with existing products since every time a lot of post adjustments were required to meet his desired standards of excellence.

Thus eventually he decided to create the first typeface himself which received great feedback among colleagues and clients. From then on a new idea was born. Together with Nicolas he founded Heritage Type Co. with the mission to create extraordinary Vintage sets that would help any designer to achieve incredible results in every project.
