Team Avoid Red Arrows


Avoid Red Arrows is a collective for type design matters. It was founded in 2008 by Marko Grewe, Stefanie Miller, Simon Roth and Peter Stahmer who met during their studies at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design.

The collective uses typography as a medium to communicate, constantly exploring new aesthetic ways for this communication with type in their projects. Avoid Red Arrows publishes fonts developed by designers for different purposes.

Avoid Red Arrows is initiating and producing independent projects but the collective is also interested in commissioned work and consulting.
