Is it possible to rethink the German design icon?
For the sake of its timelessness and longevity, we are convinced that you have to! With compactness and elegance, extreme widths and a variable-first approach, we have combined the requirements of the digital world with modern German engineering. The DIN typeface has been thoroughly reimagined in a way that our brand new flexible incarnation breathes life into the Normschrift standard. And just like 100 years ago …
Neue DIN is 100% CSS compatible. Providing a stringent interplay of 81 static fonts which correspond to W3C’s CSS specifications.
We went above and beyond and added extreme widths that have never been seen in a DIN typeface before – from XXCondensed to XXWide.
All vertical curves are round, have no straight lines and swing easily, which gives the typeface a touch of elegance.
Neue DIN includes an additional 100 Latin-based languages that have often been overlooked. More languages will be added later.
Alternative forms for Q, a, u, r, l, 6, 7, and 9, round dots and arrows, different figure sets, numerals in circles and squares complete the variable overall picture.
