Was ist Dada?

Dada Grotesk was designed by Devalence for the book and the signage of the  fantastic ‘Dada’ exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, 2005. The font is based on a typeface found in a 1918 issue from the "Dada Paris" magazine, originally called Aurora. It can be described as a text-and-display typefaces which remains in the same time American Gothics and German Grotesks. This modest-but-beautiful font has been used a lot during the first decades of the 20th Century, but it dit not make through the dawn of photocomposition. While maintaining the idiosyncrasies of the original drawing, Devalence developed a contemporary design available as a complete font family.

The Dada is still under development with a condensed, compressed and monospaced version on it's way.
