Alarm Font Download Font Information

In the late 1920s the Trennert foundry in Hamburg-Altona, Germany, commissioned several fonts from freelancer Heinz König. His chunky, striking Alarm typeface and its blackletter-style companion, Wiking, are among the most remarkable display faces from that period, and were briefly quite successful across Germany. The 1928 Alarm was probably designed to compete with Berthold’s successful Fanfare from the previous year, drawn by Louis Oppenheim, but different in every detail.
