About Binder Font Family

Our Binder Family is a revival and expansion of Binder-Style, a typeface designed by Joseph Binder and released by D. Stempel AG in 1959. It originally was a single weight. In later film type adaptations, a bold style, and an outline with drop shadow style were made available. However, this typeface never really had a true sense of family or larger language compatible character set.

The original Binder-style typeface found revived popularity with its super condensed style when it appeared on the movie poster for "Silence of the Lambs". It was always a disappointment to me how this typestyle had never gained more traction in use.

And so, many years later, we decided to revive the original typestyle, and expand it with a range of weights and obliques to pair with those weights. We've moved most of the unusual lowercase forms to a Stylistic Alternates feature, along with unicast alternates for the Capitals.

The family includes a full standard character set with expansive international support of latin based languages, and 4 weights jumping from Thin to Bold, along with 4 accompanying obliques. This family is ready for you to eat it up with a nice glass of Chianti.

Here's what's included with the Binder Family:

  • 538 glyphs per style - including Capitals, Lowercase, Numerals, Punctuation and an extensive character set that covers multilingual support of latin based languages.
  • 4 weights: Thin, Light, Regular, & Bold.
  • Accompanying Obliques with each weight/width style.
  • TTF formatted fonts have been hinted for optimal performance.

Here's why the Binder Family is for you:

  • You're in need of a stylish condensed font with a variety of weights and obliques for your designs
  • You're a fan of the typographic works of Joseph Binder, but wish there was more to them
  • You love the style of Agency and Bank Gothic, but want something uber-narrow
  • You are desperate to recreate the movie poster from Silence of the Lambs
  • You just like to collect quality fonts to add to your design arsenal

About Grype

Grype began as a grunge type outfit for a short-lived time under the independent designer Charles Leroux. It was acquired by Astigmatic (AOETI) in 2016 and has since transitioned under the team of Brian J. Bonislawsky and Jim Lyles into a type foundry that produces font families inspired by corporate, band, and other logotypes and branding. And we still have retained some of the early pepperings of grunge typography from the library to boot.Grype expands on branding logotypes and makes them into full fledged type identity kits.
