Adobe Has Created Five Fonts From the Lost Lettering of Original Bauhaus Designers

Students made the typefaces from fragments shelved since 1933


Last year, to kick off its “Hidden Treasures” campaign, Adobe partnered with an award-winning Photoshop brush maker and Oslo’s Munch Museum to digitally re-create seven of painter Edvard Munch’s original brushes, turning them into tools for Photoshop and Sketch users.

This year, the company has set its sights on the Bauhaus, the short-lived (1919 to 1933) but immensely influential German school of design. And lettering, rather than furniture and architecture, is the focus.

“Hidden Treasures: Bauhaus Dessau” is a series of five free font families that use as their starting point letter fragments and sketches by original members of the Bauhaus.
