About this font family
Based on Berthold’s 1913 Berliner designed by Hausschnitt, Erik Spiekermann redesigned and digitized the typeface for the foundry.
H. Berthold published Berliner Grotesk in 1979.
This distinctive design with a high x-height, short descenders and rough edges is appropriate for advertising, displays and short blocks of text. The bold weight is particularly useful for “loud” headlines and ad copy.
