About this font family

Designed by Professor Friedrich Poppl (1923-1982) for Berthold in 1982, Nero is the 10th Poppl design available exclusively from Berthold. He died before seeing this timeless typeface commercially released.

Poppl extended his calligraphic experience and title page design work to create Poppl Nero: an all-capitals alphabet with a loose outline. As with each of his typeface designs, Poppl used his typographical expertise and dedication to beauty to create a “timeless” face – pure, clear and balanced.

The result is a beautiful, purposely rough, display typeface. More…

The digital version, released in 2003, was produced by Berthold’s “Type Atelier”, and completed by noted Berthold designer, Dieter Hofrichter (Vergil, Whittingham, Futura Serie BQ).

In addition to the original weights (light caps, bold caps, alternative and swash characters), Berthold supplemented the Nero design with small caps and a medium weight.
