NB Akademie™ is a contemporary grotesque type system designed by Stefan Gandl comprising of 20 styles: Light, Light-Italic, Mono Light, Mono Light-Italic, Regular, Italic, Mono, Mono-Italic, Medium, Medium-Italic, Mono Medium, Mono Medium-Italic, Bold, Bold-Italic, Mono Bold, Mono Bold-Italic, Black, Black-Italic, Mono Black, Mono Black-Italic.

The typeface’s influences 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’ later became internationally known and successful as Berthold’s Akzidenz Grotesk (1896) — the godmother of all modern grotesque typefaces.

NB Akademie™ will be available as OpenType Std format and as OpenType Pro Edition supporting 102+ latin based languages.
 The typeset will be exclusively available for print, web and app-use with special licenses for ebook- and OEM-embedding as well as (Small Business) Broadcast licenses via NBL starting on 31st of October 2016.
