Neptun Styles

About Neptun

The Neptun family is an exploration of early German sans serif typefaces that challenge today’s visual habits with their warm and playful shapes. These characteristics are represented in various ways in this functional superfamily, building a typographic bridge to modern times.

Neptun Nord is a nod to Venus Grotesk, creating a friendly and retro aesthetic with extreme proportions, pointed terminals and narrow widths. Neptun Süd interprets those values in a modern way: wider forms and familiar proportions, but with punctual breakouts.

As usual, added features allow for adaptation to your needs — for example, simplified alternatives for better spacing, rounded punctuation, or initial swashes. The 2 stylistic directions, 7 weights and 7 widths allow for a wide range of use, including reading text and display usage. Furthermore, with the help of variable font technology, all parameters can be seamlessly adjusted, so you can pick the perfect mix of grotesque fonts from then and now — yourself!
