About this font family
The BF Rotwang™ Pro is a contemporary new edition and re-design of an formerly design by Guido Schneider.
Named after the C.L. Rotwang, the inventor of the Mensch-Maschine from the film Metropolis (1925/1926), BF Rotwang plays with the character traits of high-contrast transitional serif typefaces and Didone-style typefaces.
BF Rotwang is a typeface characterized by balanced elegance. It is sensitive, sophisticated and self-confident, but unobtrusive. The heavy weights have the power and dynamic for strong headlines and exciting logotypes, the lighter cuts the elegance and lightness for use in continuous text. All letters and characters are a touch condensed, so the typeface looks compact and works space-saving.
