ITC Týfa is a joint effort of František Štorm and Josef Týfa. The original metal face of Czech artist and designer Týfa was inspired by the work of architect Pier Luigi Nervi.
“In the past, type design was primarily based on the esthetic values of the faces. Mine were inspired by the forms of modern architecture,” says Týfa. Štorm began digitizing the typeface under Týfa’s direction and feels the design shows “a little touch of baroque typography.” While it is possible to see the influences of older Czech designers, ITC Týfa is a unique typeface with a distinctive character all its own.
ITC Tyfa 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.)
