About Bayer Sans Font Family


Bayer Sans, is based on the typography of the Austrian-born artist Herbert Bayer. Bayer worked as a teacher and graphic designer at the Bauhaus, a revolutionary German art school, during the 20's. His specialty was commercial art and he had many "radical" views on typography and its interaction with society. Bayer felt that written language should be merely a graphic version of spoken language. Thus, he advocated a single alphabet without majuscules and miniscules. Bayer's designs are simple, geometric letterforms that lend themselves to lowercase form. This font, based on the typography of Bayer and his students at the Bauhaus Werkstatt (studio), was digitally modeled by Noah Rothschild. Bayer Sans features a complete character set including European characters, alternate letters with adjusted widths and designs and ligatures. Included are the "f" characters and a special linked double-o.

About Victory Type

Victory Type was founded on a wintry Buffalo afternoon in early 1998. Its head designer/typographer, Noah Rothschild, has long enjoyed the two parts of language: what is said and how it is presented. This is quite evident in the fonts of Victory Type which vary in style, whether they are grunge, retro, modern or casual. The foundry which originated as a freebie font website has evolved into a tiny company which offers high-quality typefaces for economical prices... you can still get a couple of free fonts at Victory Type’s website.
