Grato and Gratimo are a system of typefaces joined by geometry but differing in genre and function. Grato’s geometric core is shared by two designs with different terminals and different uppercase proportions to make a Grotesk and a Classic. And, for greater function and economy, both were redrawn for text and interface: Gratimo Grotesk and Gratimo Classic. They were later joined by Grato Marker, a playful hybrid of geometry and informality.
Carefully engineered, the system is a long-lasting companion for those who value diverse language support and strong screen performance. Grato and Gratimo support more than 260 languages across the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets and their glyphs have been carefully reviewed by skilled consultants. For best on-screen performance, all TrueType files for web and desktop have been improved with manual hinting.
Both Grato and Gratimo are available in two optical sizes. For larger sizes and purer geometry, they are tuned for branding and identity design.
