Diatype R🍩unded: Got a Yogurt Cup to Design?

Dinamo Diatype Rounded Cover 1

Hold my napkin: Diatype Rounded has arrived, Diatype’s friendlier cousin with rounded terminals in both standard and mono styles.

Diatype became a quick Dinamo classic as soon as we released it in 2020. This new family is even easier on the eye. Got a yogurt cup to design? Smash Diatype Rounded on it.

Say Aa. When is the last time you flossed?

The Rounded styles of Diatype feel oddly mechanical — as if each character has been engraved with a chunky tool in one continuous line. The overall vibe is bold, a little pop, and has an understated sense of humor to it. Imagine someone tried redrawing Diatype while wearing boxing gloves! Good luck pal.

Susi+Ueli Berger, Kunst am Bau und im öffentlichen Raum 1968–2008

ABC Diatype Rounded came into being when art school friends Fabian Harb and Dan Solbach needed a typeface for a new Susi and Ueli Berger catalog released for an exhibition on the artist couple at Kunsthaus Langenthal.

Dan and Fabian penned a sketch softening Diatype’s sharp corners into smooth curves. This then became the blueprint for ABC Diatype Rounded Mono and later Rounded standard, brought to life by the eyes of Renan Rosatti and Arnaud Chemin. They meticulously rounded each single letter while channeling the mood of typewriter typefaces from the ’70s and ’80s.

Hey Fabian, friend, are you still awake?Dan

Sure hihi! Browsing through some specimens, eating Haribos.Fabian

As usual. Look, I like Diatype, but it feels so harsh. How about we turn it into a “Rundschrift” for the artist catalog we’re designing?Dan

Handsome idea, let’s do it! 😊Fabian
