Dinamo Standards is a collection of revivals and interpretations. All Standards cover Latin 1 character sets; if needed, they can be extended in order to support additional languages or feature more weights and/or italics. Versions of those typefaces have been used for:
Gothic Light Italic
Gothic No. 6 is a sturdy and utilitarian typeface, based on early american gothics. Gothic No. 6 consists of Regular and Bold and is in use for James Fuentes Gallery New York, designed by Other Means.
Helveesti is a soviet time Helvetica clone with light-traps, meant to compensate the characteristic blur of film-setting exposure. Found and digitized at EKA Tallinn in 2014.
Pegasus is a slightly sharpened revival of a Berthold Wolpe design with the same name. Drawn with the assistance of Erkin Karamemet and Selina Bernet.
|Original Designer||Berthold Wolpe|
Permanent is a straight forward revival of Karlgeorg Hoefer’s 1964 design.
|Original Designer||Karlgeorg Hoefer|
Rauchwaren is based on type samples in Walter Käch’s educational folder ”Schriften / Lettering / Ecritures” (Olten, 1949) for his students at the Zürich School of Arts and Crafts (among them Adrian Frutiger) and used as corporate typeface for Kunsthalle Zürich (designed by Dan Solbach, 2015).
|Original Designer||Walter Käch|
Sorcière is an interpretation and lower case extension of a turn of the century lettering (supposedly by Rudolf Koch) and drawn for Bad Bonn Kilbi (designed by Adeline Mollard and Katharina Reidy).

Based on a few characters posted by the Type Founders Archive on Instagram, later identified as a spread from "Harrild & Sons' New & Abridged Specimens" (circa 1890). Unfortunately, no further information or characters could be found. Designed upon by Johannes Breyer in early 2017, Estragon comes in the styles Wildstyle, Arrow, Bubble – and can be combined via OpenType. First used for the identity of Condo New York by Sam de Groot in 2017, who called the design a mixture of "Kurt Schwitters and Wildstyle".
Bingo is based on a type sample published in Rob Roy Kelly’s "American Wood Type, 1828-1900 (…)". Unlike its source, Bingo’s inner and outer contours are drawn with polygons, which makes it appear smooth and rounded at small size, or brutal when scaled up. A second set of monolinear, thin punctuation has been added in 2012.
|Original Designer||Rob Roy Kelly|
Simon Mono Light
Simon is a modern typewriter typeface, sporting sharp terminals and large punctuation. ITC American Typewriter was the main source of research, however Simon’s proportions and forms are drawn for contemporary usage: unnecessary details such as ball terminals and flaring serifs were removed in favour of a more industrial drawing style. In 2019–2020 Simon will be developed further into a full family of weights. It was first used as the main text typeface in Shoplifters 8: New Type Design by Actual Source.
