About this font family
Based on Berthold’s 1913 Berliner, 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.
