Having left his native Germany for the UK, Falko first studied Graphic Design at the Arts Institute of Bournemouth followed by a MA in Communication Design at Central Saint Martins, where his focus was type and language. For Falko, design is practised, refined and carefully applied and he always looks to add an extra, unexpected dimension to his work. Falko has been teaching and organising workshops at various educational institutions since 2007, most notably as a Visiting Tutor for Typographic Studies at the Arts University College at Bournemouth. His interest in typography has lead to a selection of acclaimed typefaces to his name as well as the initiation of a monthly meeting for type and design enthusiasts in Stockholm.
