Neubau Berlin (or: NB Typography, or: Neubau Laden) [Stefan Gandl]

Stefan Gandl was the designer at Designer Shock in Berlin of the pixel fonts DS1D, DS2D, DS3D, DSClone, DSClone3D, DSCutout, DSImitate, DSMufdi, DSMufdi3DL, DSMufdi3DR, DSNSW45, DSNSW55, DSNSW65, DSNSW75, DSNSW85, DSNSW95, DSP9RMX (with Markus Angermeier), DSP9RMX3D, DSSQR35, DSSQR45, DSSQR55, DSSQR553DL, DSSQR553DR, DSSQR65, DSSQR75, DSSQR85, DSTicket35, DSTicket45, DSTicket55, DSTicket65, DSTicket75, DSTicket85, DSTicket95, DSVDOTXT1, DSVDOTXT2, DSVDOTXTError. At the end of 2001, he established Neubau Berlin or NB Typography. He created DS Yakuti (experimental) and DS Lane (2001, trilined) at Die Gestalten. Fonts at Neubau include NB55RMS, NB55RBX, NB55RLS, NB55MS, NB55BX, NB55SET, NBFETT, NBFORM, NBRUND, NBTRANSFER, NBUNIVERS, and NBBLOCK, which are all mostly futuristic-looking designs. In 2008, they added the beautiful 6-weight (35, 45, 55, 65, 75, 85) NBGrotesk family (+Mono, +Mono Stencil), also by Stefan Gandl. In the Neubau series, we also find the gorgeous didone display typeface NB Antiqua Nero (+Italic), NB Antiqua Roman, Antiqua Libro, and NB Typewriter.

NB Architekt and NB Architekt Neue (2015) pay tribute to blueprint typefaces used during the Letraset era. The typeface is a classic modern monoline monospace that was originally designed by Gandl in 2002 and named NB55RMS.

Neubau made a concerted effort in the Akzidenz Grotesk genre. The classical AG became the starting point for the development of Neubau's distilled grotesque NBGrotesk (2008)---a strongly restricted, grid-based, brutally honest and optically non-corrected mono line type system comprising 28 styles. An optically balanced version of NB Grotesk's skeleton resulted in Neubau's popular NB International (2014) type system paying homage to the "international style" era. Coming full circle with NB International's conceptual successor---NB Akademie---(2016-2020) is a more distinctive and refined follower inspired by the studio homegrown Berlin influences. The in house, non-retail and beta versions of NB Akademie are called NB National. Gandl writes: The typeface's infuences and naming go way back to legendary German type designer Ferdinand Theinhardt and his revolutionary typeset Royal Grotesk (1880) designed for the publications of the Königlich-Preußischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin. After selling his own type foundry Ferd. Theinhardt Schriftgiesserei Berlin Theinhardt's Royal Grotesk became internationally successful as Berthold's Akzidenz Grotesk (1896)---the godmother of all modern grotesque typefaces.

Other typefaces: NB Plan Pro, Postmates (2017).
