New fonts from HVD now on Typekit

Are you using Brandon Grotesque for a project right now? Probably, because it’s terrific. But if you’re looking for something different with the same level of aesthetic and technical quality, you’re in luck: today we’re expanding our selection of fonts from designer Hannes von Döhren’s HVD Fonts.


First up we have Niveau Grotesk, with flared vertical terminals and a strong narrow skeleton — while being grounded in geometric forms more akin to Bauhaus and Art Deco styles. Elegant without stodginess, Niveau Grotesk is also a great addition to your “retro-futuristic” collection. Niveau Grotesk is available for web and sync.


Next is Reklame Script, originally introduced to the Typekit Library in 2011 for web — and now also available for sync. The most casual of brush scripts, it’s based on mid-century hand lettering, but isn’t stuck in time — its brashness has a contemporary graffiti quality as well.


Also new to Typekit, these are available for web only:

Brix Slab (+ Condensed) by Hannes von Döhren and Livius Dietzel
Americane (+ Condensed) by Hannes von Döhren
Supria Sans (+ Condensed) by Hannes von Döhren
Cheap Pine (+ Sans and Shadow for chromatic layering) by Hannes von Döhren

    Some great additions! Reklame will definitely get some use.

    Still dreaming of the day Brandon Grotesque is available for desktop sync! 😉

    I agree Luke.
    Brandon Grotesque and a few others would be nice to have for desktop as well.
