Grotesk est l'une des premières fontes publiées sur Velvetyne. Dessinée par Frank Adebiaye en 2010 et publiée sur le site de Velvetyne en 2012, Grotesk est un caractère sans empattements fortement géométrique, qui présente un espacement étrangement large. La version originale du Grotesk s'est fait connaître parce que pendant longtemps elle a été visible sur le logotype du site officiel de la ville de Paris. Même si l'identité visuelle de la ville a changé dès lors, le "S" cassé de Grotesk est encore visible dans quelques-uns des véhicules techniques de la ville.

En 2023, une nouvelle version du Grotesk a été publiée, développée par Ariel Martín Pérez. Cette nouvelle version introduit des nouvelles graisses en mode multiplexage, ce qui veux dire que vous pouvez changer la graisse de la fonte sans faire varier la chasse du texte. Cette nouvelle version présente aussi quelques corrections optiques. Enfin et surtout, elle augmente considérablement le set de caractères de la fonte avec des nouvelles bas de casse et du support linguistique pour le russe, l'ukrainien, le tifinagh et des nombreuses langues basées sur l'alphabet latin.

Vous pouvez utiliser le Grotesk pour donner une allure élégante et décontractée à vos textes, son arôme subtilement art-déco saura relever toutes vos compositions.

Ох, тяжко, важко!
Here I pause for one moment, to exhort the reader never to pay any attention to his understanding when it stands in opposition to any other faculty of his mind. The mere understanding, however useful and indispensable, is the meanest faculty in the human mind, and the most to be distrusted; and yet the great majority of people trust to nothing else,—which may do for ordinary life, but not for philosophical purposes. Of this out of ten thousand instances that I might produce, I will cite one. Ask of any person whatsoever, who is not previously prepared for the demand by a knowledge of perspective, to draw in the rudest way the commonest appearance which depends upon the laws of that science; as for instance, to represent the effect of two walls standing at right angles to each other, or the appearance of the houses on each side of a street, as seen by a person looking down the street from one extremity. Now in all cases, unless the person has happened to observe in pictures how it is that artists produce these effects, he will be utterly unable to make the smallest approximation to it. Yet why? For he has actually seen the effect every day of his life. The reason is—that he allows his understanding to overrule his eyes. His understanding, which includes no intuitive knowledge of the laws of vision, can furnish him with no reason why a line which is known and can be proved to be a horizontal line, should not appear a horizontal line; a line that made any angle with the perpendicular less than a right angle, would seem to him to indicate that his houses were all tumbling down together. Accordingly he makes the line of his houses a horizontal line, and fails of course to produce the effect demanded.
