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.
All styles of the Grotunda family come with handy and playful features — speaking of alternate letters, ligatures, case-sensitive forms and more.
Thanks to the coverage of the Latin-Extended-A Unicode range, Grotunda supports most modern Latin languages. Actually, containing some additional accented glyphs, you can set text in 215 languages. If you still think your language isn’t supported, you can look up the full list below or in the specimen.
Grotunda comes with 604 glyphs, covering the Latin Extended-A Unicode Range, descender-less alternates for tight headlines, ligatures and various styles of figures.
