inserat

“Inserat” is German for “advertisement”, and is used as a shorthand term to refer to a sub-genre of narrow, straight-sided, typefaces – usually sans-serifs. As the term implies, such typefaces are effective for publicity design: posters, headlines, and other display typography.

The first variable incarnation of Bild, DJR’s homage to some of the more dense American gothic type styles from the 20th century.
