Hungarumlaut is an independent digital type foundry, run by Adam Katyi.

He and the letters became friends in 2007, when he got his first pixel-typeface design assignment. His enthusiasm is unbroken since then. Adam graduated in Sopron, in Institute of Applied Arts with the Tótfalusi Sans Serif font. He made his first MA degree in 2012, in Moholy-Nagy Art and Design University.
After that Adam applied to Type and Media at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, The Netherlands. He studied there everything, what is important to be a professional type designer, from sketching, through to programming. His final project was Westeinde, a typeface with optical sizes, in 2013.

Adam released his reworked degree typeface, Westeinde Caption at Hungarumlaut, in 2014.

From 2015, he is working for Miles Newlyn, at TextPref as a part-time font engineer and typedesigner.

Adam's style is concrete and clean. He avoids the equivocation and unnecessary things. His favourite software is RoboFont and also familiar with Glyphs and FontLab too.

Adam is a returning teacher in the Moholy-Nagy Art and Design University and in the Institute of Applied Arts in Sopron.
He also held typedesign workshops, where he teaches how could you create a digital typeface from you sketches.
