Hans Reichel, born in 1949, caused a stir in the early 70s with his unusual self-made guitars. Since then he has given numerous concerts in Europe, the US, Canada and Japan and has released over 30 LPs/CDs. He belongs to the guild of improvisational musicians. In about 1985, he invented the legendary daxophone, a string- and voice instrument that operates via thin wooden blades. He designed his first typeface (Barmeno) in 1983. Since 1995 design of the font families FF Dax, FF Schmalhans, FF Sari und FF Daxline.
