About

Graphficdesigner und Handlettering Artist Robert Bree

I am Robert, a graphic designer with a passion for handlettering and calligraphy. I’d like to help you by creating individual solutions for your design challenges. I excel in logo design with typographic oriented solutions such as logos, monograms, or any typographic artwork.

If you like to learn Handlettering, Brushlettering or Flourishes, have a look at my Workshops. If you are interested having me at your company or event to give a workshop for your staff or clients, we can talk about it.

It is always a highlight for guests and customers at events and faires, to do Live-Lettering in front of their eyes. Writing their name or a phrase in a calligraphic style. Guests can also be invited to write with the tools and learn little things about the technique of calligraphy.

How everything started…

Italy

1995 Italy was always a myth for me, especially because we never traveled to Italy with the family. I was fascinated by the food, the fashion, the architecture, the old black and white movies and the life of an Italian family. I wanted to know if all this is real and what was behind it. So I went to Florence for six months.

The Italian culture and the spirit of an American art group inspired me so much, that I decided two years after my business school in Cologne to move to Milan. After my first working experiences in business and a half year in the United States, this was a real change for me. Moving to Milan for an indefinite amount of time

Freelancer

2005 After eight years in Milan and working in an advertising agency, the return to Germany felt like a new challenge. Munich was our destiny as it was the most italian city in Germany considering the lifestyle and being close geografically. As a freelancer I designed a monthly editorial magazine and supported other agencies with online and offline design jobs.

Networking events

2012 was the first time I organized networking events with delicious food and beautiful ambience. In a well chosen locations, entrepreneurs met each other and engaged in good conversations.

Handlettering and workshops

2014 I started the mastercourse at seanwes and became a member in seanwes-community. Since then i committed totally to handlettering, bruslettering and flourishes. Then in 2016 I started hosting workshops in all three areas. In the meantime i conducted more than 100 Workshops in Germany.

Pavo&Rob – the Coffee Talk

2019 Every friday Sketchnoter Pavo Ivkovic from Cologne and i go LIVE doing the Coffee Talk. It is a conversation on IG-LIVE about creativity, life and good coffee.

Lettering Days Munich

2019 The team around Julia Winkler, Kathrin Vinko, Emma Mendel, Pavo Ivkovic, Johannes Belach and me are organizing the Lettering Days in Munich in October 2021. A creative conference of two days with a magnificent lineUp and a full packed programm. 

Book and Font

2020 The first book i contribute some lettering compositions was published at the Frechverlag in november. It is a Bullet Journal for men. In collaboration with typedesigner Roland Huse (Hungary) i design my first Font. In 2021 “Roberts Script” Font became a font family with the regular version and the “new” light version.
