In type design and typography, the word Hamburgefonts (alternatively styled HAMBURGEFONTS or hamburgefonts) is a sequence of letters used to sample a typeface. It contains the letters typically designed first when designing a typeface, chosen because they include many of the shapes and strokes required to build up the complete alphabet. It is not a word in the traditional sense; it has no meaning, but is rather a construction of the typography industry.
