Georg Trump (10 July 1896 – 21 December 1985) was a German graphics, typeface and postage stamp designer, known for designs such as the book typeface Trump Mediaeval (1954), the slab serif City (c. 1931) and the condensed, industrial Schadow.[1][2][3][4]

Trump fought in both WWI and WWII, the latter which left him severely wounded. He studied under Friedrich Hermann Ernst Schneidler [de], and was a fellow lecturer with Jan Tschichold in Munich.[1] He worked for the Berthold Type Foundry and then the Weber Type Foundry in Stuttgart.[5][6]
