Roc Grotesk is a sans serif font style household. This typeface has forty-five designs and was published by Kostic Type Foundry.

Roc is a sans serif grotesk inspired by American wood types from the end of the 19th century. With nine weights in five widths, this household includes 45 typefaces in overall. The character set supports Western and Central European languages, as well as Turkish.

Roc Grotesk comes in a range of 5 widths: Compressed, Condensed, Regular, Wide and ExtraWide, in order to cover a large scope of applications. Although the designs at both ends of each variety are made in their most noticable type in terms of width and weight, they are not required to such extremes as to end up being unreasonable, and are rather functional in screen settings. The Regular width keeps all its 9 designs in proportionally comparable widths. The Compressed width, however, is intentionally made to be disproportionate, so that every design takes the least possible horizontal space. That is why the contrast in between Compressed Thin and Compressed Heavy design is substantial.

As the weights development from Thin to Heavy, the stroke contrast ends up being more popular. It is deliberately overemphasized in much heavier weights, which is particularly evident in the uppercase E and R of the Black and Heavy style. Roc has a large x-height and reasonably short descenders and ascenders. No uppercase letter comes down below the baseline, so the lines of an all-caps text can be packed firmly on a poster or a headline. The Routine design is somewhat generously spaced, as it is most likely to be used for setting longer passages of text. Its Bold equivalent is spaced in such a method that the width of the text column will resemble the text set in Regular. Tabular figures in these two designs have precise matching widths, so for instance, you could highlight one row of numbers in a data column without visually interrupting the vertical order of the table. The lowercase g and r have alternatives to accommodate what many designers get out of a common Grotesk typeface. The single-story g and the cut-off r are accessible through the OpenType feature.
