so helvetica isnt cool anymore ?
i should be using more DIN obviously
next client will use this regardless.
and pay for it.
DIN leaves me feeling cold. I like it in uppercase light and thats about it.
I never liked it that much.. the rounded version looks nice though
i like the numbers for DIN and thats about it
Was so hip in 2002. And there were only like 3 weights then.
I like DIN. Its untrendy for me.
agreed, uppercase and numbers = yay, lowercase = hmmm
imo, DIN is one of the best kerned typefaces around, doesn't ask for much adjusting... Do agree with the cold feeling to some degree (no pun intended :)
thats my thoughts too, forwarded this link round everyone at company and said "we need this new DIN font family".
all the other designers agree, now we got to steal the credit card from the accountant without him knowing ;) shhhhhhhhh!
Its quite unconventional
rounded has many, many uses.
@Knuckleberry: To me it is very conventional. It's a digital font based on large type cut from metal for exterior signage. In this case the German highway system. DIN : Germany :: Interstate : USA. It's based on their "industry standard" type like Interstate is based on Highway Gothic.
Here's a bit on DIN from 2001.
I mean, I like DIN and all, I'm just surprised to see DIN as news on a design site 8 years after the fact. By 2003 I had already used and abused it to the point of needing to delete it from my fonts folder for the sake of god and country.
- it's new cut, noobtypist
- Uh... not exactly a noob kiddo. Some new, some old. DIN Rounded was called DIN 16. Look it up.stewdio
- just don't sound like your know din or typeface better than me, noobtypist
- the german article i posted is from 2004 and they are talking about 4 years ago = 8 years.invisiblechamber
- Clearly I've overestimated your ability to say something intelligent.stewdio
- Each new version is different, stew. Like Avenir Nextukit
- Not different enough.Scotch_Roman
