ABOUT







Grafotechna

Czech state type foundry (est. 1951) from the communist era at which Josef Týfa, Oldrich Menhart and Rudolf Ruzicka worked for some time. Týfova Antikva (1959, inspired by the work of architect P.L. Nervi) by Josef Týfa later became Tyfa Text (and ITC Tyfa, 1998). Frantisek Storm made a version of it under Týfa's supervision. Menhart published typefaces such as Grazdanka (1953). An unknown designer made Universal Grotesk in 1951. This typeface was used for road signs in Czechoslovakia.

Praha (1968) is a text typeface that was revived by Synoptic Office in 2017.
