Oliver Schöndorfer

Oliver Schöndorfer is an interdisciplinary designer with a strong focus on branding, web design and typography. Hopelessly in love with everything type, he is easily delighted by beautiful serifs and infuriated by bad kerning.
He works as independent freelance designer and typographic consultant for clients and agencies all over Europe. He taught and held workshops at schools and universities in Austria.

Oliver sees himself as a link between the aesthetic and the technical parts of web design. His vision is to get designers and developers to better collaborate. To share his knowledge and passion, he writes blog articles, speaks at local events and international conferences.
