United by a bias for the current and the eccentric, we work to find resonances in the visual stream of contemporary culture. Designing for art, erotics, fashion and entertainment – taking detours into corporate branding — always focusing on redefining typography.
We are Niklas Ekholm, Juho Hiilivirta, Jungmyung Lee, Eero Pitkänen and Jaakko Suomalainen. We work separately and as one: Each typeface is ultimately the product of a specific combination of circumstances and personalities.
Founded in 2010 on a strong sence of urgency for formal radicalism in letterforms, Helsinki Type Studio is a collaboration of type designers, combining our creative and productive forces to reach the highest intensity.
