As you have never seen it before. The Din Text series was based on the original German standards typeface for road traffic, but was completely redesigned to fit typographic requirements. Completed in 2002, it was first released in 2003 and published as a group of 4 separate families (regular weights, condensed, compressed and a special display version). In 2005, it was improved and expanded into a Pro series with 14 high-end fonts per family -for a total of 56 fonts- and average 1270 glyphs per font. Examine this new Pro series in all versions and compare. Din Text Pro, Din Text Condensed Pro, Din Text Compressed Pro, Din Display Pro.

This typeface is based on DaVinci’s own handwriting. Many of these letters are free interpetations and do not stick to the original forms. It comes in 2 different styles: regular and a more informal called inked. The new Pro version supports all European languages including Latin, Greek and Cyrillic.
