About us

Schick Toikka is a independent type foundry established in 2010 by Florian Schick and Lauri Toikka. Located in Berlin and Helsinki we create high quality retail fonts, as well as custom typefaces for a wide range of large and small organizations.

Retail Fonts

We design typefaces that we find useful and unique, and most importantly, the kind we would use ourselves. Each of our retail fonts supports a wide range of languages and various OpenType features. Our typefaces can be licensed in OpenType format for desktop, WOFF & EOT format for web, and TrueType format for apps and EPUB. Purchasing is easy and you receive the font files within minutes after payment. (Please note that we can’t refund money on font license purchases.) Upon request, we provide trial fonts with a limited character set.

Custom Fonts & Lettering

A custom typeface is a highly effective tool for creating a strong and original visual identity. We work closely with our clients to understand their needs and provide the most suitable typographic solution. The end result can be a proprietary typeface, a tailored modification of one of our retail typefaces, or a system of branded lettering. Please ########## for more information.

Lecturing & Workshops

We have lectured and directed workshops at the Academy of Art, Architecture and Design Prague, Aalto University of Helsinki, University of Applied Art and Science Hannover, University of the Arts Bremen, TypoKaki Design talks in Kuala Lumpur, Bauhaus University Weimar, Typografische Gesellschaft München, TGA Austria Vienna, HTW Berlin, Konkuk University Seoul, and Sebro Nabora Moscow. We are always happy to visit schools, companies, and other institutions to talk about our work or give workshops.
