Nikolas Type: Grand Slang

Published: 18 Sep 2019

Cologne-based type foundry, Nikolas Type has launched their new typeface Grand Slang.

Grand Slang is a new Font, boldly discovering and reshaping the Essence of the beautiful American, mid 20th Century Calligraphy. The inescapable desire not only to recreate but to retranslate historic letterforms, led into the creation of a very own, sleek and reduced “Grand Slang”.

Passing on the beauty and warmth of the former hands of Oscar Ogg and William A. Dwiggings, Grand Slang comes with an idealistic approach of merging grotesques and serifs together in over 310 individual, non-modular upper and lowercase characters, ligatures, figures and signs.
