# Hauss typeface

Hauss is a universal variable neo-grotesque typeface. It’s a low-contrast closed face with slightly dynamic proportions. It can easily handle texts of any size, is easily readable in dense matter and truly comes to life in headlines where it transforms to attract attention with its geometric character.

Hauss is the typeface of the future. It easily replaces all existing neo-grotesque faces as it is simply impossible to find a typeface that is more neutral than Hauss.

In his 1799 doctorate in absentia, *A new proof of the theorem that every integral rational algebraic function of one variable can be resolved into real factors of the first or second degree*, Gauss proved the fundamental theorem of algebra which states that every non-constant single-variable polynomial with complex coefficients has at least one complex root.

In 1818 Gauss, putting his calculation skills to practical use, carried out a geodetic survey of the Kingdom of Hanover, linking up with previous Danish surveys. To aid the survey, Gauss invented the heliotrope, an instrument that uses a mirror to reflect sunlight over great distances, to measure positions.

Gauss also claimed to have discovered the possibility of non-Euclidean geometries but never published it. This discovery was a major paradigm shift in mathematics, as it freed mathematicians from the mistaken belief that Euclid’s axioms were the only way to make geometry consistent and non-contradictory.

In 1831, Gauss developed a fruitful collaboration with the physics professor Wilhelm Weber, leading to new knowledge in magnetism (including finding a representation for the unit of magnetism in terms of mass, charge, and time) and the discovery of Kirchhoff’s circuit laws in electricity.[19] It was during this time that he formulated his namesake law.

Among other things, he came up with the notion of Gaussian curvature. This led in 1828 to an important theorem, the Theorema Egregium (remarkable theorem), establishing an important property of the notion of curvature. Informally, the theorem says that the curvature of a surface can be determined entirely by measuring angles and distances on the surface.

Character set includes an expanded Cyrillic alphabet, Latin alphabet, symbols and special characters. Also included are the less used but very useful symbols such as case-sensitive glyphs, fractions, superscript and subscript numbers.

Case-sensitive glyphs allow to type, for example, codes and phone numbers. They are vertically aligned with digits and give the text a steady and confident rhythm.

Some of the characters are typeset automatically: for example, typing 5/8 will result in a properly formatted fraction, while the digit 5 in parentheses (5) will turn into ⑤.

The typeface includes over 5000 kerning pairs.

Hauss is a modern typeface with an endless range of styles. Its complete neutrality allows it to work in absolutely all cases where a typeface is required.
