From Hauptstraße to the Highway

The latest release from Monotype brings a long-awaited new member to the DIN Next™ typeface family, in the form of DIN NextSlab. This robust, outspoken new design builds on the industrial heritage of the classic German engineering designs, DIN 1451 Engschrift and DIN 1451 Mittelschrift. Retaining its industrial roots, DIN Next Slab adds a sturdy square serif, and brings a new level of typographic versatility to the design, making it suitable for a range of uses from advertising to branding, and beyond. 


The Recorder, relaunched

With a complete redesign by Luke Tonge, and a brand new editorial remit, the Monotype magazine, The Recorder, has relaunched as a twice-yearly magazine, focusing on the wider implications of typography. Originally published in the early 1900s, The Recorder was in publication for around 70 years, offering readers an in-depth look at the type industry. The new edition of the magazine will explore type from a more cultural standpoint, showing how its influence has played a role in our lives over the years. 



Monotype wins at the 2014 ISTD Awards

The 2014 ISTD International Typographic awards saw Monotype celebrate five wins, for projects covering wayfinding, identity, print and exhibitions, all of which emphasised the role type plays at the very heart of design. The Pencil to Pixel exhibition, which explored 125 years of typographic history through the Monotype archives, picked up a Premier Award, as did the Monotype Collections. Certificates of Excellence were also awarded to type projects by Dan Rhatigan and Nadine Chahine.
