A variable superfamily exploring german grotesque typefaces


Grotunda Styles

About Grotunda

The Grotunda family is a modern take on the classic Rotunda style. Characteristic shapes (such as the lowercase d) are taken up and rendered in a contemporary, reduced design language. Likewise, the family consists of only one weight, but comes in different styles with varying flairs – also based on modern styles.

Despite all the reduction, the calligraphic character resonates, not least through the decorated capital letters. These create a completely different texture than body copy and border on illegibility.

The typeface is therefore designed for classic display use: playful poster titles, eye-catching keywords, short quotes or experimental wordmarks. To fully serve this purpose, it offers the familiar support of languages, useful Open-Type features and an adaptable flair thanks to the different styles.
