A milestone in the development of grotesque type design, Theinhardt was designed by François Rappo, after studying the origins of sans-serif typefaces emerging from the late nineteenth and the early twentieth centuries. The typeface is named after Ferdinand Theinhardt, whose visionary approach significantly shaped modern typography as he opened a new range of possibilities for the grotesque genre—scholars are continuing to uncover details about this fascinating typographic saga. Theinhardt was released nearly fifty years after the revolutionary arrival of neo-grotesque typefaces, which thrived in the Swiss-style context. Looking at this fantastic line of descent, François Rappo meticulously created a new typeface, valorizing the quality and heritage of its sans-serif ancestors.

Theinhardt is composed of nine complementary weights, each masterfully drawn with their corresponding italics and offering a wide range of possibilities. A solid and well-proven typeface Theinhardt combines the best historical features of early grotesque typefaces in a contemporary adaptation fit for extensive modern usage. It is “the original grotesque” par excellence.
