DIN Next RoundedDesigner: Akira Kobayashi
Publisher: Linotype
DIN Next Rounded was designed by Akira Kobayashi and published by Linotype. DIN Next Rounded contains 4 styles and household plan alternatives. p > The name DIN refers to the Deutsches Institut für Normung (in English, the German Institute for Standardization). The typeface began life as the DIN Institute's basic no. DIN 1451, released in 1931. It included a number of designs of standard alphabets for mechanically engraved lettering, hand-lettering, lettering stencils and printing types. These were to be used in the areas of signage, traffic signs, wayfinding, lettering on technical drawings and technical documents. Rooted in earlier styles for Germany's railway business, the alphabets were based upon geometric shapes in order to be easily reproducible utilizing compass and ruler.

In post-1945 West Germany, the DIN alphabets were widely used, for instance on a lot of roadway signs. They became offered as font styles that were valued by designers for their commercial, rather quirky and "non-typographic" feel and look. From the 1990s onwards, more refined variations became offered for usage in book and magazine typography. DIN Next is a typographically fixed and broadened variation of this ultimate 20th-century design.

DIN Next Rounded is its softer, friendlier variation.
