This sans serif typeface belongs to the DIN font family, which has its roots in 18th century German road and traffic signage and technical documentation. Today, while it has not been able to completely shake off its primitive look and feel, it has branched out to offer various new futuristic typefaces. Among them, the DINBek Black is one such font that has gained outstanding popularity.
The geometric styling of the DINBek Black font is evident from its strong lines based mostly upon squares, circles and rectangles. The extra dark shade is what makes this typeface so popular. This is the only font in the entire DIN family to have an extra dark color palette, thus making it stand out. It is due to this characteristic which makes the font so popular for use in headlines. Its instant ability to draw attention goes a long way in attributing to its popularity.
