    Since 2001.
    Content built to last.

    Ralf Herrmann

    I started my first typography community website (Typografie.info) in 2001. Back then I was eager to communicate with and learn from other people interested in typography, but the site I imagined didn’t exist yet. So I decided to build it myself and over the years it became one of the biggest and most-visited typography websites on the internet. And it is still running and actively maintained. In the same way and with your help, we collect knowledge and engage in fruitful discussions which are meant to last under the Typography.Guru label since 2015.

    This site is run and used by people with a passion for typography. Unlike big social media platforms, this site is not owned by shareholders demanding profit maximization. We respect your privacy and we make sure to keep this platform safe through active moderation and technical maintainance.

    Patronage

    Why patronage? Over the years we tested many ways to finance our online communities. Paywalls are not an option, since we create educational content which is supposed to be seen by as many people as possible. We do not want to limit useful information to the ones able to pay for it.

    What about ads? Ads are a normal way to help to pay for websites and we use them as well. But there are also problems and limitations. First of all, ads barely work for niche topics like typography. Online content usually needs millions of views to be easily paid for by ads. And that leads to another problem: Ad-powered content fosters thin click-bait content. It puts the advertising partners before the users and this is not our goal for platforms like Typography.Guru.

    Patronage to the rescue! Patronage is direct voluntary support. With your support we can write articles and offer website features for you without being required to think about advertising views and social media algorithms. We can put the users first. And you are free to support this approach. Not necessarily because a pay-wall forces you to, but because you like what we are doing and want to keep it going. Patronage should rather be understood as a donation than the purchase of a product. But since we are grateful for your support, we are still happy to provide benefits for active patrons. These can be downloads, exclusive articles and videos as well as additional features here on our platform.
