About Lo-Type Font Family

Lo-Type was designed by Louis Oppenheim and first released by Berthold in 1914. In 1980 Erik Spiekermann adapted the faces and expanded the family with the addition of a regular weight. Subtle deviations and inconsistencies between the characters in the different weights are intentional. The large x-height, idiosyncratic shapes and wobbly edges make it particularly eye-catching and unique. As Louis Oppenheim wrote, “Advertising should never be dry. A little bit of humor combined with straight facts will produce a happy mixture.”

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.
