My name is Daniel Wenzel. I am a procedural designer specialized in typography and generative processes. I studied communication design in Konstanz, Germany. Halfway through university I paused my studies to work at DIA Studio in New York. I later returned to Germany to continue and complete my studies, but stayed at the studio remotely. During university, I began to create a growing archive of typefaces and type experiments, which over time evolved into a small type foundry called 26A1.
In March 2021, I started as a part-time University Lecturer at ELISAVA in Barcelona, in Typography in the Master Visual Design. I have since taught and lectured at a variety of universities and design events.
In September 2021, I finally moved back to Brooklyn, as a full-time Senior Art Director at DIA studio.
