The unusual and noticeable Linotype Grassy was created by German designer Inka Menne during her communication design studies at the FH Potsdam. One project involved the development of a writing utensil. Menne designed a wooden stylus with a rubber eraser as the writing tip. "The result of this pen and a bit of 'puffing' were the basis for Grassy...As I found out that Grassy had won a prize in the 3rd International Type Design Contest, I decided to extend the typeface family to include three weights, so I drew and 'puffed' a full character set for each weight", explained Menne. One look is enough to see where the typeface got its name. Each letter is sprouting a few blades of grass and an entire line resembles a front lawn in one of three stages of overgrowth. Linotype Grassy not only attracts attention but its appearance is also not easily forgotten.
