Background

Zimmer – with its highly-legible and simple sans-serif font – squarely fits into the mould of classical neo-grotesque typefaces. Zimmer is, however, still relatively narrow and is inspired by both early grotesque and humanist typefaces. The result: a typeface that works equally well for text and for display. And the name? It arrives to us via Paul Auster books, highway signs, and the fear of flying.
