Greta Grande

Design concept

Greta Grande is a collection of eight display typefaces. The four weights are intended for large headlines (above 30pt), and therefore is designed with extreme contrast between the thick and thin, tight spacing and refined details. It is ideally suited for display use and nameplates. In combination with other Greta versions, it offers a complete palette of typographic choices.
