LiebeFonts creates nice typefaces and hand-crafted letterings with a charming personality and obsessive attention to detail.

Hey there, fellow type lover! I’m glad you’ve found my website! My name is Ulrike Rausch and I specialize in handwriting fonts that actually look like the real thing. I live and work in Berlin, Germany.

My passion for hand-made designs was sparked by a semester of studying painting abroad in Florence, Italy. My OpenType feature nerdiness and my obsession with perfectly engineered fonts are the result of few semesters in Luc(as) de Groot’s type design class at the Potsdam University of Applied Science.

I started LiebeFonts in 2009 with a handful of fun pictogram fonts. My first proper typeface, LiebeErika, was well-received by the audience and enabled me to become a full-time type designer in 2011.

Whenever I’m not working on the next font release, I enjoy painting signs or crafting handletterings. Or I work on custom typefaces for wonderful clients such as Monotype, Jung von Matt, Lorenz, Westermann, and bareMinerals.
