Meet Allrounder Grotesk, a decent and modest font and the first member of the multipurpose Allrounder superfamily.
The multitalented typeface was developed from 2018 to 2020 by Moritz Kleinsorge. It lays the foundation for Kleinsorge’s Allrounder superfamily, a series of typefaces sharing the same color and horizontal metrics (cap height, small cap height and x-height). The aim of this series is to create a typesetting system whose components match each other perfectly. Look at Allrounder Grotesk as the first part of a design kit: every serif typeface that will follow may be easily combined with Allrounder Grotesk.
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.
The sans serif typeface 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 high-quality typesetting scenario you might encounter.
Complementing Allrounder Grotesk, you will soon find Allrounder Serif, a Renaissance Antiqua whose design informed its Grotesk counterpart. While the construction principles of these two font families is completely independent of each other, they still harmonize due to sharing some key characteristics, such as metrics and color.
In any kind of design, in any type of medium, working with Allrounder Grotesk is effortless. That’s why Allrounder got its name.
