Houschka Alt Pro

Designed by Nick Cooke, Houschka Alt Pro is a sans serif font family. This typeface has twelve styles and was published by G-Type.

Houschka Alt Pro is a carbon copy of our Houschka Pro font with one key difference: the rounded signature glyphs A & W on the default positions swap places with their straight alternates.

Houschka was named after Georg Houschka, a sadly defunct confectioner’s shop in Salzburg, Austria, which had a wonderful 1930’s frontage and distinctively rounded letterforms in the sign above the door.

Houschka (Alt) Pro is the follow up to the original Houschka type family which first appeared in 1999.

Character shapes have been improved, kerning and spacing refined, and OpenType features include CE, Baltic, Turkish & Cyrillic language support plus small caps, 3 stylistic sets, contextual alternates, ligatures and 4 sets of numerals.

Houschka is a clean and legible modern sans serif font which shares the humanist qualities of Gill Sans & Johnston but retains a uniquely charming character of its own. Rounded corners and rolling curves give Houschka a soft and friendly appearance.
