as old think! Serifa and its condensed counterpart, the Glypha font are based on an earlier Frutiger design, the Univers family. The Univers font (1957) was one of the very first faces created specifically for the Deberny Et Peignot foundry phototypesetting equipment as well as the more traditional metal type. Starting with Univers, Frutiger created a special system to maintain consistency within the font faces he created. The system was based on a pair of numbers, the first of which referred to the font weight (3-8) and the second to the normal/italic characteristic.Usually, slab serif types are blocky and difficult to read in text, but Serifa has humanistic forms that are highly readable for both text and display applications such as headlines, captions, or corporate logos.
This slab serif font of Adrian Frutiger is extremely legible and robust, making it suitable for almost any kind of use. Based on the forms of Univers, Serifa makes a harmonious and timeless impression. The heavy rectangular serifs are the defining characteristic of slab-serifs and are as thick as the letters themselves. The differences in the subdivision are most clearly visible in the lowercase letters. The constructed variant almost seems similar to a sans-serif typeface to which serifs are added. Serifa was designed as a family containing six weightsâ€”Light, Light Italic, Roman, Italic, Bold, and Black.
