The Original Grotesk

Theinhardt® Pan is an extension of the Theinhardt® family that supports languages written with the Cyrillic or Greek alphabets. The non-latin character set is the outcome of a long and meticulous design process, that involved historical researches and the expertise of native-speaking consultants. Drawn by François Rappo, the non-latin alphabets develop the idiosyncrasies of Theinhardt® in the Cyrillic and Greek letter shapes, for a unique and fascinating result. Theinhardt Pan® offers a fluent design through the different European alphabets in a wide range of 9 weights, each drawn with their corresponding italics.

A milestone in grotesk type design, Theinhardt was designed by François Rappo after studying the origin of the modern Grotesks from the early 20th century. It is named after Ferdinand Theinhardt, a punchcutter and type designer whose visionary approach significantly shaped modern typography.
