My bio:

My name is Ulrike Rausch and I specialize in handwriting fonts that actually look like the real thing.
My passion for hand-made designs was sparked by a semester of studying painting abroad in Florence, Italy. My OpenType feature nerdiness and my obsession with perfectly engineered fonts are the result of few semesters in Luc(as) de Groot’s type design class at the Potsdam University of Applied Science.

I founded my own independent type foundry called LiebeFonts in 2009 with a handful of fun pictogram fonts. My first proper typeface, LiebeErika, was well-received by the audience and enabled me to become a full-time type designer in 2011.

LiebeFonts creates nice typefaces and hand-crafted letterings with a charming personality and obsessive attention to detail.
