Alarm was developed by Andreas Seidel, Heinz König and released by Fust & & Pals. Alarm contains 1 style. p > In the late 1920s the Trennert foundry in Hamburg-Altona, Germany, commissioned several fonts from freelancer Heinz König. His chunky, striking Alarm typeface and its blackletter-style buddy, Wiking, are amongst the most amazing display deals with from that period, and were quickly rather successful throughout Germany. The 1928 Alarm was most likely designed to take on Berthold's effective Fanfare from the previous year, drawn by Louis Oppenheim, but various in every detail.

Alarm has never ever known a major digital version, until Fust & & Buddies decided to have a go, after gathering classic specimens of the face, and doing some test printings with an authentic 72pt-size metal variation. Our friend Andreas Seidel (principal of astype) did an exemplary task, homogenizing the character set without deserting its quirkiness, broadening the character set with the typical modern symbols in addition to diacritics for many languages that use the Latin alphabet, and including mediaeval and tabular figures. An advertising classic is all set for a new life.
