Background

Glypha™
Glypha was designed in 1977 and is the condensed extension of Serifa, Frutiger’s slab serif (or Egyptian) design from the 1960s. Like Serifa, Glypha is modeled from the basic forms of Univers, with the addition of slab serifs. Glypha has a taller x-height than Serifa, and the proportions of its curves are based on the oval. This family is wonderfully legible and practical, and the fine differentiation between the ten weights offers the graphic designer a variety of application possibilities. Glypha is a particularly good choice for catalogues, advertisements, and magazine work.
