Plak is a geometric sans-serif typeface designed by Paul Renner in 1928. Renner’s first typeface, Futura, was one of the most iconic typeface designs in history, but Plak, his second design, was mostly forgotten. A revival, designed by Linda Hintz and Toshi Omagari, was published through Monotype in 2018 under the name Neue Plak. Neue Plak expands way beyond the three weights of the original Plak, to end up with a huge family of 60 styles, with both text and display versions, including condensed, compressed, narrow, extended and wide widths.
