Nitti Typewriter

‹ Back

Nitti Typewriter is a family of five styles that are a playful nod to the aesthetics of typewriters. The underlying design (‘Nitti’) has its roots in the first sans-serif designs of the 19th century – the Grotesques. Originally a British invention, the Grotesques gained massive popularity in mainland Europe and also became widespread in early 20th century USA where they were commonly referred to as ‘Gothics’. The quirky and often idiosyncratic shapes of these designs lend them a humanity and warmth which is still appreciated among many graphic designers.

Nitti is named after Francesco Raffaele Nitto, better known as Frank ‘The Enforcer’ Nitti, one of the henchmen of Al Capone. The typeface family is part of a bigger collection of Grotesque-inspired typefaces that also includes a poster version called ‘Stanley‘ and a proportional version (which is still under construction) called ‘Erminio‘.

Nitti Typewriter has an extensive set of Latin, Greek and Cyrillic characters that covers almost all European languages together with most Asian languages that use the Cyrillic script.
