Johannes Breyer (1987) is a German / Chilean graphic designer based in Berlin. Se habla Español. He studied in Zurich (CH) and worked for design studio NORM before graduating from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam (NL). Together with Fabian Harb, he is running the Swiss type design practice Dinamo.

Next to offering retail typefaces (

In 2016, Johannes was teaching two parallel courses in type design: at the University of the Arts (UDK) Berlin and at the Hochschule für Gestaltung (HfG Offenbach). In 2017, Johannes will be teaching type design at the Academy of the Arts Düsseldorf.
