Französische Grotesk was one of Haas’ existing sans serif typefaces, based on Schelter & Giesecke’s Breite halbfette Grotesk from 1890. Its popularity was decreasing in the mid-1950s. For “Franz Grotesque”, my french point of view was to keep the warmth and boldness of it’s initial squarish vibes, with darker capitals, “accidented” S’s and so on to differentiate it from similar early grotesques.
