Aktiv Grotesk now with Greek and Cyrillic support

Dalton Maag, exclusively distributed by FontShop, recently updated their popular Aktiv Grotesk family to include Greek and Cyrillic language support. It is now available in a few versions:

  • Corporate (Western, Central/Eastern European, Cyrillic, and Greek)
  • Greek (Western, Central/Eastern European, and Greek)
  • Cyrillic (Western, Central/Eastern European, and Cyrillic)
  • Standard (Western and Central/Eastern European)

Here’s a bit about Aktiv Grotesk from our November 2010 Newsletter:

Helvetica may be the world’s most popular typeface but one man is having none of it. Type designer Bruno Maag of Dalton Maag views the ubiquitous modernist typeface’s popularity with a mixture of bemusement and irritation. So he has decided to do something about it. With the Dalton Maag team he has created Aktiv Grotesk, a typeface designed to provide an alternative (and, he hopes, improvement) to Helvetica.
