Stanley typeface

‹ Back

Stanley is a bold and broad-shouldered poster typeface collection in three styles that 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.

Stanley is part of a bigger collection of what we have dubbed ‘Italo-American Grotesques’. There is also a monospaced family suitable for continuous text called Nitti and currently under development is a proportional version called ‘Erminio’.

Stanley boasts an impressive amount of glyphs which include arrows and dingbats and supports Latin, Greek and Cyrillic scripts. OpenType features provide access to many extras including ligatures, stylistic alternates and different kinds of numbers.
