The story of Freigeist is a journey into the past, back to the early grotesk typefaces and long before Helvetica and Co were standard typefaces in operating systems. For what we take for approved today is the outcome of development and pioneering spirit of type foundries such as Caslon or Stephenson Blake in the 19th century, whose expressive styles are mostly forgotten today. The Freigeist household captures this untamed spirit - hence the name (German for "complimentary spirit") - and puts it into a contemporary context, leading to a multi-faceted household with a wide variety of applications, font styles and features for modern typesetting.

Design Details

Unlike other modern-day grotesk typefaces like Helvetica or Univers, Freigeist is defined by a warm and vibrant look. It draws inspiration from numerous historical designs such as Caslon's Doric or the Grotesque variants of Stephenson Blake. Especially visible are the narrow terminals, the serpentine S or the dynamic g in mix with ascenders that reach to the cap-height only.


Many italic grotesk typefaces are highly oriented towards their upright counterparts. Sadly, this often means that they can underestimate to their actual job, which is to highlight words or sections of a text. The italic cuts of Freigeist attempt to fix this circumstance by utilizing the best possible formal range while strengthening the untamed spirit. What contributes to this, is a reminiscent of handwritten kinds, which can be discovered in a, n, y or g, along with the German sharp s or the ampersand.

Alternate Characters

Alternative letterforms are ideal for tailoring the overall look of a text, for usage in logos or they can even work as customized font styles for business. Freigeist includes 10 stylistic alternatives that are simple to place through the Opentype window, such as the single-storey a, a tail-less version of the a for compact text, when uses in condensed widths or a dialed down version of the r.


Freigeist has an integrated assistance for Latin and Cyrillic based languages and covers more than 210 languages.

Opentype Features and Symbols

The household features many opentype functions to support modern-day typesetting. This consists of ligatures, different number sets or alternative shapes for texts embeded in all caps.


Freigeist is offered in 5 widths (XCon, Con, Typical, Wide, XWide) and 6 weights (Thin, Light, Regular, Medium, Bold, Black). Including the accompanying italics, the household can be found in 60 cuts that appropriate for any application.

Update 1

A lot has altered in this very first upgrade. It is more than simply a 1.01 or 1.02. It is really the 2.0!

I have actually gone through all! single glyphs of the 18 master files, making the family more sharp and even a bit more modern. I've added some brand-new opentype features and revamped the italics, because I wasn't delighted enough with the result. I've added new kerning pairs, brand-new metrics, and even new glyphs. Please examine my website for more details on the brand-new design and introduction about the opentype features and alternate shapes.

If you acquired the Freigeist household currently, thanks a lot!! It is the most advanced family that I released up until now. I hope that you more than happy with this new version.
