A member of the DIN family, the DINBek Light font is a sans serif typeface. The roots of the DIN typeface can be traced back to the 1930′s, when it began to be used in Germany mainly as road, motorway and traffic signage. Gradually, its use spread to other forms of technical lettering and documentation.
Since then, the DIN family has seen a lot of additions to its existing fonts. The DINBek Light is one such addition, which was added pretty late. The DINBek Light font is nothing but a thinner version of the standard DIN C typeface. Thus, it goes without saying that it has as its basis geometric shapes – mostly rectangles and circles.
The DINBek Light font is characterized by thing, long and smooth strokes, especially in the uppercase characters. The narrow structure of all the characters – including the numbers – gives off an overall impression of neatness and simplicity.
