About Tofino

All the things you love about Swiss style typography but with more hang loose attitude. The Design is based on an old 1922 specimen from Richard Gans Fundicion Tipographica, a type foundry in Madrid. The specimen used a font called Grotesca Ideal as the small, descriptive labeling text throughout the specimen. I enjoyed the slightly squared, condensed shapes and thought they would make a great workhorse typeface that would be well suited to a screen environment.

The full Tofino family has 74 styles including nine weights, four widths, and text-specific styles. These are all available in the Tofino Pro package.
