Fine Freudian Fonts
Sigmund Freud Typography Brings the Psychologist Back to Life

Harald Geisler is creating a Sigmund Freud font based on the famed psychologist’s handwriting. If you’ve ever wanted to write like the great shrink, you will be able to soon.

Using eight samples of Freud’s writing, Geisler hopes to construct a typeface that simulates his unique style. The samples stretch over a 50-year period from 1883 to 1938. With documents like scientific papers, letters and notes, the font has a great diversity of samples to draw from.

Handwriting can be hard to simulate in a typeface as the hand is inconsistent and fonts are a static collection of characters. Freud’s handwriting will be simulated through multiple versions of the same character being used for different letter combinations. In addition, common letter combinations from English, Spanish, German and French will be included in the font.
