Walbaum Grotesk

Walbaum Grotesk© František Štorm

From what we can tell, Justus Erich Walbaum probably never intended to create a sans-serif typeface. However, it’s difficult to find an appropriate sans- counterpart to the serifed Walbaum, which would share the same austere german feeling, vertical proportions, matching features and multi-lingual capability with the latest Walbaum 2010 Pro. In spite of the serifed inspiration, our Grotesk has remarkably raised x-height for stronger appearance and slightly condensed drawing which improves its stand-alone use. It is perfectly aligned with the new Walbaum 120 XL Pro series. The palette of weights is richer on the Grotesk side, since the serifed nature didn’t allow such kinky interpolation. Indeed, it’s usable separately as well as loud, inconspicuous, yet spicy poster typeface.

It is perfectly aligned with the Walbaum 120 XL Pro series.
