About Berliner Grotesk Font Family

Based on Berthold’s 1913 Berliner designed by Hausschnitt, 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.

About Berthold

The H. Berthold typefoundry, renowned for crafting high-quality typefaces, was founded in 1858 by Hermann Berthold in Berlin. By 1918 the foundry had become the largest in the world, with offices in Stuttgart, St. Petersburg, Leipzig, Riga, Budapest and Vienna. To complement its proprietary typesetting equipment business activities, Berthold developed high quality typefaces. The H. Berthold foundry’s most celebrated family of typefaces is arguably Akzidenz-Grotesk (released 1896), known as the mother of all sans serifs.The Premium foundry page can be viewed Here.
