Mottopress is a side project from Sebastian Dörken and Stephan Schinkel. Both graphic designers, one more print-, the other more digital-orientated. We like beautiful crafted things and share the love for typography. We always wanted to connect the digital possibilities with the analogue craftmanship.

Thanks to Erik Spiekermann for giving us his letterpress studio in Berlin Tiergarten and for the Akzidenz Grotesk halbfett in 60pt, specially made for this project! Thank you!
