custom type "kontakt" by dstype / similar font needed

ulli's picture


i really, really like “kontakt” by dstype.
unfortunately it is a custom font and therefore not available for licensing.

who can help me: which fonts look very similar?

Hi Ulli,

I’d say Miller has a similar feel.

Good call, Florian. I also see some Corporate A in there.

H&FJ's Chronicle isn't too far off the mark.

I have to agree with Florian. I would go for Miller.

thank you for your answers.
right, “miller” is really close.

but i totally disagree with stephen, corporate occurs very different to me.
o.k. the line “DIE MÖGLICHKEIT” in dstype’s sample looks like it could be from a mercedes benz ad but “kontakt” has a more solid standing to me.

I was referring to the light weight, yes. The long serif forms are similar.
