family of typefaces was designed in 1989 by Otl Aicher
. It was his last type design, named after a small village in southern Germany
, where he lived.
Rotis is unique in that it consists of matching subfamilies: Sans Serif
, Semi Sans
, Semi Serif
. Readily identifiable in all four subfamilies is the leftward leaning upper and lowercase C.
Some contemporary type designers regard the Rotis as looking fascist
, although this is merely a visual
thing and clearly opposes Aicher's
