Allrounder Grotesk is a neutral, powerful Neogrotesk member of the Allrounder superfamily. An unobtrusive teamplayer as well as an excellent soloist, this hard-working sans-serif typeface is ready for any task you’ll throw it at.
A workhorse that lives up to its name, Allrounder Grotesk consists of ten weights ranging from a delicate Air to a powerful Black with 900+ glyphs per font. Each weight is accompanied by carefully hand-corrected italics.
Allrounder Grotesk supports more than 200 Latin-based languages, containing the complete “LatinPlus” glyph set developed by Underware. It also provides you with plenty of OpenType features and additional goodies: small capitals, ten sets of figures, case-sensitive forms, ligatures, superiors, fractions and arrows. Equipped like this, you’ll be ready for any kind of sophisticated typesetting scenario you might encounter.
With Allrounder Grotesk, you’ve got a sans that works great for body text, yet looks crisp and clean in headlines and display sizes. Whether annual reports, magazine and editorial layouts, nonfiction books, branding and packaging work, large-scale advertising, forms and contracts, or contemporary posters: Allrounder Grotesk is up for it.
This multitalented font family was developed in a 2-year process by Moritz Kleinsorge. It was the first release of the Allrounder superfamily, a series of typefaces sharing the same color and horizontal metrics (cap height, small cap height and x-height): a typesetting system whose components match each other perfectly. Any other part of this design kit, e. g., Allrounder Antiqua or Allrounder Monument, may be easily combined with Allrounder Grotesk.
Perfect Pairing: Allrounder Antiqua + Allrounder Grotesk
Allrounder Antiqua is the ideal complement to Allrounder Grotesk. They both share common vertical metrics and a common color. This allows you to pair both typefaces within the same layout—even within the same paragraph—without creating visual disruption. Head over to the Family Page of Allrounder Antiqua to get more information about this typeface.
Design Trick: Bilingual Design With the Allrounder Superfamily
Combining Allrounder Grotesk with Allrounder Antiqua is an ideal approach for bilingual designs, wherein both languages get the same emphasis yet are distinguished with two different typefaces. It’s also best practice to set headlines in a different typeface than the body text if they harmonize with each other. Allrounder Grotesk and Allrounder Antiqua provide you with the perfect pair for this purpose.
In any kind of design, in any type of medium, working with Allrounder fonts is effortless. That’s why Allrounder got its name.
