Hi there!
My name is Melle Diete, and I live and work in Berlin.
A few years back, I was a student of Communication Design
at the University of Applied Sciences in Potsdam, which
is near Berlin. From there, I became inspired to work with
Type Design. Furthermore, in Lucas de Groot´s class,
I began working with experimental lettering and took up
the challenge to create entire alphabets. From this
moment on, I realized it was not only about discovering
excellent letterforms, but rather that such forms truly
create a unity in the end. Based on my experience, a good
font takes a few years until completion. Therefore,
Type Developing became a personal training for patience
and determination. Incidentally, this had and has a
strong influence on my artistic work as well. Both painting
and drawing are my personal preferences since the age
of 16. In those days, I was more interested in landscapes
and still life. Today, my inner world of pictures is more
important to me because they reflect the soul.
With this in mind, it is my endeavor to “speak” with
pictures in a symbolic way, where I can share experiences
and communicate ideas — in my imagery and thoughts
as well as together with my clients. Touching the mind is
my intention, whether consciously or unconsciously.
With my work I show connections between colours, forms,
objects, plants, animals and humans, side by side,
among each other, and together.
