About this font family
This is a relaunch version of Joost, a milestone of the Type-Ø-Tones catalogue. This revival of Joost Schmidt’s typeface now has a capital set, a new weight and some OpenType features. Not to mention alternate glyphs for M, N, Ñ, and W characters.
The inspiration came from the ‘bauhaus dessau im gewerbemuseum’ basel exhibition poster, designed in 1929 by Franz Ehrlich after a sketch by Joost Schmidt.
