About Niedermann Grotesk Font Family

With the printing of the Futurist poem “Zang Tumb Tuuum” in 1914, modern art had taken a typographic twist: “words in freedom” (parole in libertà) were now a major part of the art world. The avant garde followed suit. Niedermann Grotesk is based on the everyday type that appeared in early modernist collages, journals and manifestos. It is a peculiar style of lettering—which was originally inspired by the Sachplakat (object poster) work of Lucian Bernhard—and adapted for hot metal in 1908 by Heinz Hoffmann. 100 years ago, the style became a workhorse of the German printing industry. Niedermann Grotesk is an updated variant, referencing the original poster art, each letter carefully drawn with an old brush. Bumpy, bold and blunt—with a suite of alternate characters and a few dingbats—Niedermann Grotesk is perfect for advertising, packaging, poetry, art, protests and retro homage.

About steve mehallo

Freelance graphic designer steve mehallo originally started designing fonts for his own use. And each font exploration became niche experiments all their own; mehallo develops his typefaces typically as a response to a design problem, a historical quandary or as a need for that perfect font for a certain job. Precise outlines, even on the rough stuff, are all part of mehallo's typographic repertoire. Today, custom font development and logo renderings are a speciality. All of his fonts have deep roots, detailed design research is behind every letter – mehallo also teaches graphic design history and typography courses in one of his other lives. steve's fonts have also been available thru Monotype, Linotype, Psy/Ops, Ascender Corp, FontShop and ITC.
