In addition to numerous logo designs, Othmar Motter also designed a number of heraldic devices. In 1991, he drew a stylized interpretation of the coat of arms of his home town, the Marktgemeinde Hard. It depicts a boat sailing on the waves of Lake Constance (German: Bodensee).
The emblem was subsequently produced in copper and mounted on the facade of the local school. For the lettering to go with it, Motter chose his Corpus, which offers similarly soft shapes.
The photos were kindly provided by Triest Verlag. Earlier this year, Triest has published the long-awaited Motter biography, edited and designed by Elias Riedmann and titled Othmar Motter – Meister der Extrabold (“Master of the Extrabold”).
