The Bauhaus Look
Curated by Stephen Coles, Letterform Archive
Few design movements have shaped modern typography quite like the Bauhaus. In collaboration with Letterform Archive, whose exhibition Bauhaus Typography at 100 makes a special reprise appearance at Adobe MAX 2022, we’re suggesting a few fonts that will give you that Bauhaus look – from new typefaces based on alphabets developed at the school (Adobe’s Hidden Treasures), and classic geometric sans serifs that defined 20th-century modernism (Kabel and Erbar-Grotesk as Dunbar), to contemporary interpretations that add a fresh touch (New Order, Noka, FF Real, Stozl).
There is so much more to the Bauhaus story. Check out the Bauhaus Typography at 100 catalog, published by Letterform Archive, and see their articles about typefaces used by and inspired by the school.
