Background

Glypha® was designed by Adrian Frutiger and appeared with D. Stempel AG in 1977. The font consists of ten cuts and is formally based on its predecessor, Serifa®, although its lower case letters are a bit larger. Like Serifa, Glypha is also based on the general scheme used to design Univers®.
