About this font family
Richard Lipton designed the Hoffmann family from letters drawn and then cut out of paper as free-standing forms by contemporary Michigan lettering artist Lothar Hoffmann.
Lipton follows creative development of contemporary lettering forms closely, searching for ideas that will yield type series. He digitized Hoffmann with Font Bureau in 1993, preparing four full weights, each supported by an expert set, plus a titling.
Among other uses, Hoffmann is recommended for Magazine and Corporate use.
