matthias dörfelt: handwritten invoice

‘handwritten invoice’ by mattias dörfelt matthias dörfelt, the munich-based communication designer and media artist of mokafolio, engineered ‘handwritten invoice: generative invoice paper’ as a response to ill-fit of the standard invoice. after constructing his personal invoice through the apple word processing program pages, the artist craved a design more representative of his aesthetic– something personal and not too obviously digital. he felt to have a handwritten invoice would be a personal interaction between he and the individual receiving his invoice, as most individuals have a sort of nostalgia for handwritten letters. rather than drawing out each character by hand, dörfelt developed nodebox, a computer program that is not only able to redraw his logo for each invoice as the letterhead, but uses his handwriting as the typeface for the document.

dörfelt is currently assessing his options for graduate school in design and for the time being he is available for freelance work!
