At Typerepublic we are pleased to announce a new member of our catalogue: Groundbeat! This rhythmic type family revives the essence of suburbs and evokes the slowed down and breakbeat melodies from the 90s. It is a perfect match for unique display texts in urban contexts.
The downtempo rhythm of this typeface is brought by how all details in its constructions are merged into one unique design. While some square-shaped details give it a blunt structure, the organic approach of its stencil construction gives it the flow. It's the combination of these two features what connects Groundbeat to the dark and yet rhythmic melodies of Trip-Hop since the early stages of its design.
This display type family consists of 6 different styles all preserving the nuances of this unique stencil approach. Groundbeat is both melancholic and atmospherical. Nicely melted for a musical reading.
