Prater Garten is a large beer garden and restaurant in the previous center of East Berlin (Mitte). Their identity was designed in the early 1990s by renowned illustrator, designer and lettering artist Henning Wagenbreth. Having been a student in East Germany before the wall came down, he mastered a precise but also very personal lettering style. When the FontFont (FF) type library was started up in Berlin, he and Steffen Sauerteig (member of the three-men collective eBoy) digitized the various lettering styles of the Prater identity, and called it … FF Prater!
This Kurier was the newspaper and event calendar of the Puppentheater (puppet theatre) of the city of Dresden. This 8-page issue is from 1997. The design, with all texts and headlines in FF Prater Sans and FF Prater Serif, was made by the designers of the typeface: Wagenbreth and the eBoy group.
