In 2009 Berlin-based type designer Ulrike Rausch founded her own type foundry called LiebeFonts, providing high-quality typefaces with a charming personality and obsessive attention to detail. Her growing portfolio of handwriting fonts has been used in publications, advertisements, and websites all around the world. She also creates custom typefaces for clients.

When Ulrike is not busy with her next font release, she enjoys teaching at art schools and giving type design workshops in her studio.
Together with letterer and writer Chris Campe, she wrote the book “Making Fonts!”, a comprehensive guide to type design and font production.
In 2020 Ulrike decided to hit the books again in order to get her Master’s degree at the University of the Arts in Berlin. She successfully graduated in September 2022 with a great deal new knowledge about machines and technologies that reproduce handwriting.
