Matthew Butterick’s Hermes FB is inspired by Hermes Grotesk, an early 20th century typeface by the Berlin type foundry Woellmer. Like Berthold's Block, Hermes FB resembles German jobbing and poster type of factory printing from the 1910s and 1920s. Blunt corners suggest the wear and tear of rough presswork. Matthew Butterick created the original styles in 1995. In 2010, he added more weights, italics, and glyphs variants to expand the family’s versatility. Font Bureau 1995, 2010
