About Residenz Grotesk

Jumping on board of the everlasting trend of grotesque typefaces, Residenz Grotesk aims to be a neutral and versatile workhorse with a friendly touch — but also an experimental playground for contrasts and extrema.

The well-known constructed letterforms are not only pushed to their limits in the extreme widths. A complete alternative alphabet, inspired by handwritten shapes and graffiti, can be sprinkled in individually or in set steps. This allows for a unique touch to be easily mixed in wherever needed.

Available in 6 weights and 5 widths, the spectrum of potential usage is wide and versatile, ranging from traditional swiss style typography to trending experimental graphics. Though the tight spacing, designed for big and impactful text, individual styles can be tweaked to be used for proper body copy. And needless to say Residenz Grotesk comes with a comprehensive character set, useful OpenType features and is even available as a Variable Font for you type nerds out there!

  • ► Released in 2020
  • ► 6 Weights in 5 Widths
  • ► Complete Set of alternate Letterforms
