Font Info

Hellenic Typewriter is a proportionally-spaced slab serif for text and display. The design combines the typewriter aesthetic’s balance of elegance and pragmatism with some of the extended western flavour of the style known as Antique Extended or Hellenic Wide, dating back to the 19th century.

Rounded strokes, some unorthodox slab details and playful, looping tails all add to Hellenic Typewriter’s warmth and approachability, while its typewriter-inspired proportions and clean forms provide rythym and an honest, confident voice.

The lightest weights, laying bare the simple, partly-geometric and optically-monolinear construction, embody an assertive elegance.

Ball terminals feature extensively throughout the design, in both lower and uppercase. This mirroring of details creates a greater harmony between the cases and ensures that the true character of Hellenic Typewriter is not lost when setting in all-caps. Expressive true italics elaborate upon and emphasise some of the freer, more decorative elements of the roman styles.
