About Rail Grotesk

Inspired by Margaret Calvert’s Rail Alphabet and Roundel’s identity Design for BR’s Railfright, Rail Grotesk po­sitions it­self as a Neo-Grotesk with a geo­metric angular skeleton; and pro­portions that are wider than a typical Grotesk, but thinner than a Sans. Structurally, this creates a nice balance for both di­splay and text use.

So fare Rail Grotesk only comes in regular. But work al­ready started on an italic, rotalic and bold ver­sion. In the future optical ad­justments will be in­corporated to ensure each weight can sit next to each other.

Rail Grotesk offers an extensive character sets with all western european diacritics, numerics punctuation & mathematic.
