Moskau Grotesk by Björn Gogalla

The design of today's typeface of choice, Moskau Grotesk, is based on the signage created for the Café Moskau – one of the prestige buildings of the former DDR (German Democratic Republic) – in Berlin by the graphic artist Klaus Wittkugel at the beginning of the 1960s. A tribute to this orginal design, Moskau Grotesk was created in 2013 by designer Björn Gogalla.

Moskau Grotesk is available to purchase over on MyFonts.
