MemphisDesigner: Rudolf Wolf
Publisher: Linotype
Memphis was designed by Rudolf Wolf and published by Linotype. Memphis contains 14 styles and family package options.  

Dr. Rudolf Wolf was the first to add slabserifs to the sanserif forms pioneered by Erbar and Renner. He designed Memphis for Stempel in 1929, following Futura; details show the influence of the American typeface Litho Antique from 1910. Ludlow Karnak can be seen as a version of the same design.
