is a sans-serif typeface
designed by C.W. Pischiner in 1928 for the Stempel type foundry
. The German
name translates to English as "new time." The face combines characteristics of both geometric and realist (neo-grotesque) sans-serif classifications. In 1959 additional weights were added by the Linotype
foundry's version. A related but different face, DIN Neuzeit, is rounder and more purely a geometric sans-serif.
Neuzeit S is distinct for its contrast of wide circular characters o, O, p, q, and Q with the more compact characters h, n, u, and t.
