Glypha™ was designed in 1977 by Adrian Frutiger, and is the condensed extension of Serifa, his slab serif (or Egyptian) design from the 1960s. Like Serifa, Glypha is modeled from the basic forms of Univers, with the addition of slab serifs. Glypha has a taller x-height than Serifa, and the proportions of its curves are based on the oval. This family is wonderfully legible and practical, and the fine differentiation between the ten weights offers the graphic designer a variety of application possibilities. Glypha is a particularly good choice for catalogues, advertisements, and magazine work.
Glypha supports 113 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
