Grilli Type, known as the creators of GT Walsheim and GT Eesti, introduce GT Alpina. This serif font family with a distinctive lowercase a has everything to carry out perfectly clean style.
It took Reto Moser eight years to resurrect the typographic history and end by bringing a comprehensive, pragmatic family of 70 fonts. It features an impressive variety of solutions for the width, weight, contrast and proportionality — and you may play over them to see what GT Alpina’s truly capable of.
History and Features
Grilli Type drove inspiration from classic book typography with its characteristic rhythm and proportions. Actually, that was the very one-off Alpina, designed in 2011. Since then, its appearance has significantly evolved: the visual language has sharpened for both romanian and italian symbols as well as the entire family’s personality has been highlighted.
Today, GT Alpina is a family of 70 styles across 7 subfamilies: three widths in both regular and fine optical sizes, each with five weights and matching italics. It also supports over 50 languages, a wide range of non-alphabetic characters and is obviously a headshot for the lovers of genuine roman type aesthetics.
