Linotype Freytag is a display family of sans serif typefaces based on lettering work done at the Bauhaus during the 1920s. Linotype Freytag's designer, Arne Freytag, was so inspired by these historic letterforms that he developed them into working fonts for the 21st century. But these are not strict digitisations of old forms; instead Arne Freytag redeveloped the forms, making them more legible and up to date. However, Linotype Freytag is still true to the original model, and is one of the best "Bauhaus" fonts available.Arne Freytag completed much of the work on Linotype Freytag while undertaking graduate work in typeface design in France.Linotype Freytag is a condensed typeface, which has stylistic affinities to other models with similar modernist inspiration, including Neville Brody's Insignia and David Quay's Mekanik. Because of its readable letterforms it can be ideally used for flyers, advertisements, posters and for headlines in magazines.
Linotype Freytag supports 113 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
