Massimo Grafia

Massimo Grafia is a linear-grotesque typeface in four weights, combining powerful hand-drawn forms with rigorous graphic precision. The neutral basic for professional use is supplemented by alternate glyphs, creating the scope for highly expressive typographic design: For all lowercase and uppercase letters and standard numerals at least five and in some cases as many as 14 variants are available. These can be selected and interchanged manually or automatically (OpenType support required). Massimo Grafia was designed by Gabriel Richter and Andreas Uebele.

Massimo Grafia basic is a well constructed, calm but individual grotesque for everyday use. Superior and inferior figures, tabular and standard numerals, fractions and symbols make it suitable for professional applications

Process

During his scholarship at Villa Massimo in Rome, Andreas Uebele caught up with his correspondence, writing 250 letters by hand. Gabriel Richter took the extravagant forms of individual characters and expanded them into Massimo Grafia.

Creating the base

In order to extend Massimo Grafia’s range of potential applications, Richter and Uebele subsequently hand-drew a basic typeface, establishing a calm backdrop for the various alternates. The outcome is a versatile and effective font with a distinctively hand-drawn style.

Andreas Uebele’s original correspondence did not contain all the various special characters, numerals and symbols – so these were added later to cover the full range of typographic and linguistic requirements.
