Rund-Grotesk by Frédéric Krauser

Today's font of choice, Rund-Grotesk, was created by designer Frédéric Krauser. He comments on his design: "I started the font during my bachelor thesis at Bauhaus-University in Weimar. The design is based on a former German letterpress font from the late 1930s.

"I had the chance to visit some specimen archives in Leipzig an Offenbach to get some original prints. Based on them I started building the Rund-Grotesk. With its old styles it seemed perfectly fitting to our time."

Rund-Grotesk Medium is available as a free download or, alternatively, you can download the entire family for a price you see fit here.
