About this font family
Herbert Bayer of the Bauhaus School in Dessau, Germany, designed the inspiration for ITC Bauhaus, known as the Universal typeface, while he was teaching there in 1925. Ed Benguiat and Vic Caruso redrew the typeface in 1975. ITC Bauhaus is a rounded sans serif design whose forms were developed from the straight edge and compass. ITC Bauhaus can be used in period pieces reminiscent of the 1920s and the Art Deco era; its simple, clean lines and not-quite-closed counterforms make it noticeable in display settings.
