Grotesk Sans Serif

I've always been drawn to the simplicity and rationale of typefaces such as Futura, Akzidenz Grotesk, and Din. I wanted to know why I was so attracted to these typefaces so I created my own in a similar style. Grotesk is a hybrid of these three typefaces taking Akzidenz Grotesk's x-height proportions, the roundness of Futura's bowls found in letters like "a", "c", "d", and "o", as well as Din's condensed uppercase letters.
