Montreux Grotesk

Montreux Grotesk™ is an ultra-versatile modern grotesk superfamily of 132 fonts. It takes its inspiration from Swiss design but stands apart as beautifully distinct. Its unique personality is shown in the small contemporary details, modern and dynamic letterforms and more geometric approach to overall proportions.

Montreux family was designed for all contemporary branding needs. It features over 80 ligatures including broad selection of uppercase ligatures for use in logo design and creative headlines. Carefully crafted proportions and spacing give the typeface excelent legibility that make it perfect also for paragraph text as well as user interfaces.

The whole family consist of 3 main subfamilies:

Grotesk – dynamic style created for modern branding purposes, for industries rooted in technology, new media, architecture, magazine publishing & fashion.

Classic – more neutral, paying homage to the famous and beloved Swiss design typefaces, such as Haas Grotesk or Helvetica; Montreux Classic is successful in most commercial areas such as finance, banking, health, IT or legal environments.

Jazz – the most playful and rounded style, shines when used in lifestyle design – such as food/drink, cosmetics, tourism, and fashion; Given its friendly nature, it can also be used for advertising products for the youth.

All these 3 subfamilies have their soft versions with rounded corners, giving the fonts more gentle and organic feel. Montreux contains also the Outline fonts of each style, giving a total of 12 Outline styles (6 upright and 6 italic).

Montreux Grotesk™ superfamily consists of 11 weights (from Hairline to Black, including Outline) with corresponding oblique styles, that gives total of 132 styles. Both Oblique and Italic styles were hand drawn to get sharp, consistent and fine letter shapes. It has extended language support, as well as a broad number of OpenType features, such as case sensitive forms, standard and discretionary ligatures, stylistic sets, contextual alternates, lining, old-style, tabular and circled figures, slashed zero, fractions, superscript and subscript, ordinals, currencies, and symbols.

  • 132 styles
  • 11 weights (from Hairline to Black, including Outline) with corresponding oblique styles
  • Web fonts

      Thank you for commenting Georg!

      We will always list the file types included on the deal page so I am really sorry for any confusion caused! The designer has just opted to include desktop fonts for this font, however if you would like to be able to pick up web font versions, I would be happy to pop the designer a message to get this organised for you as a bespoke licence.

        It would be great to know about the cost of the web font license. Also, would you be able to provide information about upgrades? If we buy a license for this font family, would we get free updates in the future?

        • Annabel Smith

          Thanks so much for coming back to me Ludvik!

          The great news is that as we received lots of requests from our community for a web font version of Montreux Grotesk, the designer has super kindly provided us with this for no extra cost! We have updated this font so that if you do decide to pick this up, you should find that both desktop and web fonts are included :).

          As this is a Marketplace item, you should find that any available future updates will be added to your account automatically, so I hope that you will find that this font is a super valuable addition to your font collection!

    A really great superfamily, but as a web developer / designer I need the webfonts. A second version of the bundle that contained the webfonts (or at least a webfont license) for a higher price would be fantastic…

    • Annabel Smith

      Yay we’re so happy that you love it Jan- Christoph! It is great to hear that you would be really interested in a web font version of this font, and we will definitely suggest this to the designer. Alternatively, we would be happy to organise a bespoke licence for the web font version for you, so please let me know if you would like us to get this organised for you!

          Thant’s great to hear, and just in case you haven’t heard already Jan-Christoph, we have actually just updated this font so that you can pick up both the desktop and web font versions in one! I hope that you really enjoy picking this one up and that you get great use out of your new fonts :)

    Very nice font – comprehensive and versatile. But are web fonts available?

    Reply
    • Annabel Smith

      Thanks so much for commenting and it is awesome to hear that you love it!

      The designer has just included desktop fonts for this one, however if you would like to be able to pick up a licence for the web fonts as well, I would be happy to reach out to the designer to see if we can organise this for you :).

      • James

        Yes, I certainly would be interested, depending on the price, of course. Without web fonts I can’t really justify buying a font, however good it is, since most of what I do ends up on the web. Any chance of getting an answer from the designer before the deal is over?

        • Annabel Smith

          We always try our best to make your design wishes come true James, and the great news is that ROHH has agreed to include webfonts in this pack, so that you can pick up both the desktop and web font versions here :)

            That’s great news! Purchased, and looking forward to using them. Many thanks to yourself and ROHH for making this happen.
