Jörg Schmitt is a German graphic designer who graduated with a degree in Communication Design from the University of Applied Sciences in 2010. That same year, he was nominated for “Most Talented Young Professional” by Rat für Formgebung (German Design Council) for his font family, Hellschreiber.

Based in Köln, Jörg works as a senior designer for Interbrand Zintzmeyer & Lux. He’s always searching for new and innovative ideas for typefaces with a staunch determination that keeps him moving ever forward in his career as a typographer.

One of Jörg’s most recent releases is Oblivian Text, a sharper sibling to his earlier design, Oblivian Grotesque.

Where Oblivian Grotesque carries itself with a soft and subtle warmth due to its gently rounded corners, Oblivian Text features keen angles that add a slight edginess to the architecture without displacing the friendly vibe of the original. It’s clean and modern, a neutral sans serif with a geometric structure and humanistic elements.

Available in ten weights that range from ExtraLight to ExtraBold with corresponding italics for each, Oblivian Text is an ideal choice for headlines, editorials, print and digital publishing, posters, infographics, presentations, web content, corporate communications, product packaging, identity, and branding projects. Its stellar legibility in very small point makes it a great option for business cards, labels, fine print, and mobile apps.


Oblivian Text offers a lot of flexibility though its OpenType features, including case sensitive forms, discretionary ligatures, standard ligatures, fractions, numerators, denominators, oldstyle figures, tabular figures, and stylistic alternates. Its multilingual support extends to Basic Latin, Western European, Euro, Catalan, Baltic, Turkish, Central European, Romanian, Pan African Latin, Dutch, and Basic Greek for exceptional accessibility.

Right now through September 29, 2017, Oblivian Text is on sale for 80% off of its regular price so it’s a fantastic opportunity to add this one to your font collection!
