Background

Maple is a flamboyant family of types inspired by the irregular grotesques of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The family features four weights, companion italics and multiple language support.

Maple is the offspring of Process Grotesque, our retired interpretation of the Stephenson Blake grotesques. Although the original was a well-intentioned effort, its uneasy lowercase and unresolved details gave it a feeling of being unfinished. The original attempt was “revived” in the spring of 2004 and the Stephenson Blake model was put aside to allow for a freer interpretation of the genre incorporating multiple weights and italics.
