Franz studied graphic design in Switzerland, freelanced as 3D and motion graphics designer, started a design studio, and bootstrapped a software company — twice. At Fontself, he gathered several teams to build novel font creation and rendering technologies, closed partnerships with international companies like Yahoo! and brought innovative creative apps to millions of casual users. Today, thousands of creatives use Fontself’s font creation add-ons for Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and the team keeps innovating by bringing color fonts to the design community.
