Referenz Grotesk
Referenz Grotesk is a sans serif font style household. This typeface has fourteen styles and was published by Sudtipos.

Made in Germany, Referenz Grotesk is a typeface loaded with referrals describing the type style history of Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design. Its typographic history holds a broad spectrum of shapes and characters, including F.H. Ernst Schneidler (1882-- 1956), Imre Reiner (1900-- 1987), Walter Brudi (1907-- 1987), Kurt Weidemann (1922-- 2011) and Frank Heine (1964-- 2003).


During comprehensive research study phases for Referenz Grotesk included collection and analysis. This caused more research in the Academy's collection and archive where the majority of Weidemann's estate is housed beside works of other designers and teachers like F.H. Ernst Schneidler and Walter Brudi. Another place of research study was the typesetting workshop where Schneidler had actually previously taught and worked. Some of his freshly cast typefaces were tested and used there for the first time and are still saved in several of the type cases. Concerning the more current history, for example about the Emigre designer Frank Heine, previous coworkers and teachers have been consulted.


These studies resulted in the brand-new font Referenz Grotesk that consists of traces of Kurt Weidemann's Corporate as well as calligraphic hints that link to Schneidler's Stuttgarter Schule (Stuttgart School) where composing played an essential function during the kind finding procedure. For the routine text fonts these features are incorporated in a subtle manner whereas numerous alternative glyphs get more meaningful forms.


The final sans serif type household has a clearness and modern straightness that becomes more characteristic in its heavier weights. Additionally more than 60 alternative glyphs per weight enable specific mixes that can be tailored particularly for each application and context. They open up a broad variety of visual expressions, from subtle to lively and eccentric characteristics.


Referenz Grotesk is readily available in 6 weights: Light, Routine, Medium, Vibrant, Extra Vibrant and Black, plus italics. In addition, the family consists of multiple OpenType functions such as Stylistic Sets, Tabular Figures and Case Delicate forms. Variable version of the font is included when you license the full pack.
