RomanType 946—a growing multilingual font family of 75 weights, 2018—
Available on Fontspring and MyFonts (very soon)
946 is a multilingual techno-style family developed by Berlin-based type designer Roman Wilhelm (RomanType). While more and more text families have recently been extended to a multilingual and multi-script level, not so much attention has been given to the more decorative styles. The 946 family does exactly that. A lot of care has been given to the various diacritics: they were designed a little more brutal, a little more European than with some other fonts of this category. Do also watch out for the non-Latin legs of this family. 946 is inspired by electronic music. When Roman found a second-hand Roland TR-606 drum machine in a store in his hometown back in 1995, he started to hang out with would-be DJs and musicians, trying to play the beats that went around the globe. When he started to study visual communication three years later, he was assigned the matriculation number of 946, which has now become the name of this family.

Seventy-five weights make 946 a family of many stylistic variations to chose from. As soon as the next level is reached, it will also be a family of many languages to use it for. I am currently working on a full-fledged Cyrillic and Greek extension, to be followed by more scripts in the near future.
946 Latin serves as a basis for a variety of combinations with other scripts. Still, it already offers most of what the Latin script is used for, such as Vietnamese.
A Slovakian, a Czech text sample as well as the lyrics of Yello’s “Bostich”, one of my all-time favourites.
