Basic information
DESCRIPTION:

Aktiv Grotesk started out to as an intentional alternative to the most ubiquitous typeface from the grotesque genre – a typeface which Bruno Maag, founder of Dalton Maag, openly despises as the 'vanilla ice cream' of a designer's type library.

Grotesque fonts have been hugely popular over the past fifty years, with designers and font-users choosing them for their neutrality, contemporary feel, utilitarianism, and seriousness; these are fonts which can be successfully applied in a broad range of contexts and media.

Bruno had a definite idea of what change should look like and positioned Aktiv Grotesk as a 21st century interpretation of a grotesque sans typeface, with careful execution across all of its styles. The intention was to give Aktiv Grotesk the potential to replace the competitor typefaces which, paradoxically, had become ubiquitous poster children for modernity while in truth having their roots somewhere in the Victorian era.

Aktiv Grotesk takes an authoritative but neutral position, lending any message just enough support, without overpowering it. It is a flexible and diverse font family available in sixteen weights ranging from Hairline to Black, with matching Italics. It is an ideal choice for branding exercises that require a diverse use of type in headings and short copy at mid-to-large sizes. This is also a font family with big ambitions for international appeal with the core eight styles supporting Latin, Arabic, and Hebrew scripts – and even more scripts in the pipeline.

 

Designers: Amélie Bonet, Bruno Maag, David Marshall, Fabio Luiz Haag, Francesca Bolognini, Jonathan Pierini, Ron Carpenter
