About/Description

Rotwang is a contemporary »Neue«-Edition and re-design of a formerly typeface design by Guido Schneider.

Named after the C.L. Rotwang, the inventor of the Mensch-Maschine from the film Metropolis (1925/1926), BF Rotwang plays with the character traits of high-contrast transitional serif typefaces and Didone-style typefaces.

Rotwang is a typeface characterized by balanced elegance. It is sensitive, sophisticated and self-confident, but unobtrusive. The heavy weights have the power and dynamic for strong headlines and exciting logotypes, the lighter cuts the elegance and lightness for use in continuous text. All letters and characters are a touch condensed, so the typeface looks compact and works space-saving.

Rotwang supports up to 200 Latin-based languages. The family comes with 7 weights plus matching Italics. Each font contains more than 1.220 glyphs, featuring a wide range of alternate characters, small caps, figure sets, fractions, more than 35 ligatures, many currency symbols, special characters and other useful symbols.

The style sets give you the option to individualize and adjust the typeface to the requirement of your design, without changing the general visual feeling.
