Gratimo Grotesk — a fresh modernist geometric engineered for reading
Gratimo Grotesk MediumClick to Edit
Nelle sculture dei primi anni trenta ricorrono alcuni elementi che ne costituiscono la chiave interpretativa: allusioni a parti anatomiche e organi sessuali, posti in dialettico rapporto con le strutture lineari e geometriche entro cui sono inseriti (→ Gabbia, del 1931, Stoccolma, Moderna Museet; Palazzo alle 4 del mattino, Museum of Modern Art di New York). Il ricorso alla Gabbia pone l'idea della scultura come costruzione trasparente, corrispondente plastico dello spazio illusionistico della pittura.

Gratimo Grotesk is an utilitarian family purpose-built for everyday use, a powerful workhorse in the Geometric Suite that combines elementary shapes and precise construction.

Where Grato Grotesk revels in pure geometry, Gratimo Grotesk has a practical focus. With a robust x-height, open apertures and generous spacing, its more restrained forms were the result of Grato being redrawn for reading. The result is a neo-grotesque that draws on American Gothics from the early 20th century and makes something fresh.

An allrounder specialising in smaller reading sizes and lower resolutions, Gratimo Grotesk is suitable for user interfaces and longform writing. With a compact texture, it is efficient, robust and ready to work at any size. This sans is a long-lasting companion for brands that value diversity in language and clear screen performance.

For serious typography, Gratimo comes equipped with six weights, from Thin to sturdy Black. For greater distinction, its matching italics have some cursive character shapes, but give an oblique impression overall.

For the micro-typographic demands of body copy, Gratimo’s default characters ensure maximum legibility, but Gratimo is adaptable. A range of stylistic alternates can give a different accent to text: a single-story ›a‹, an uncurled ›l‹ and others that bring out Gratimo’s geometry. Gratimo has what you need to organise data into information. Subscripts, fractions plus oldstyle and lining figures, each in proportional and tabular widths; a complete range of figure sets.

Carefully engineered, Gratimo is a long-lasting companion for those who value diverse language support and strong screen performance. Including Vietnamese, Gratimo supports more than 270 languages across the Greek, Cyrillic and Latin alphabets and its glyphs has been carefully reviewed by skilled consultants. For best on-screen performance, all TrueType files for web and desktop have been improved with manual hinting.

The Grotesk is available in two optical sizes. For larger sizes and purer geometry, Grato Grotesk is geared for branding and identity design.
