The main characteristic of Crack Grotesk are the thin joins. Based on old Grotesk typefaces, like the steep leg on ‘K/k’ or the wide-ranging extensive stroke on ‘e’, Crack Grotesk breaks the geometrical character, as well.
Crack Grotesk offers a variety of OpenType features for professional typography. Next to nice to type standards like superior lowercase and figures, as well as tabular figures and tabular punctuation marks, there is also an alternate ‘G’ with a spur, a double-storey ‘a’ and a Berlin-typical ‘ß’. All characters are included in related letters: For example, the double-storey ‘a’ also exists for superior lowercase or the alternate ‘1’ for fractions and circular digits.
Crack Grotesk was developed with the intention of appearing in an extremely present and powerful way. Therefor, a geometrical form-language was chosen, giving the characters a massive personality. The prominent distinction between capital and minuscule letters is based on early grotesques to break linear geometrics and to slightly highlight capital letters. This difference is becoming more prominent in bolder cuts, ending in Super cut, in which the stroke width is largely set apart. However, the counters resonate through their minor white space, making sure that the cuts still form a unit.
Beside Crack Grotesk’s geometric character and it’s steep joins, slanted spurs on ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘g’ and ‘q’ crack the linear stems and the geometry. They also ensure that the form-like letters can be told apart in a better way, benefitting the font’s legibility.
