ABOUT







Grilli Type

Grilli Type is Noël Leu and Thierry Blancpain, graduates of the University of the Arts in Bern, Switzerland. Grilli Type is an independent Swiss type foundry, founded in 2009, and located in Zürich. They offer a range of display and text typefaces, based either on historical sources or with an experimental background.

In 2010, their catalog had four type families: GT Walsheim, GT Haptik, GT Skeletor (monoline grotesk) and GT Lena (avant garde sans).

In 2013, that number decreased to three, GT Walsheim, GT Haptik and GT Pressura. GT Pressura was designed in 2013 by Moiré and Dominik Huber.

In 2014, they added GT Sectra and GT Eesti. GT Sectra won first prize in the TDC 2015 Type Design competition.

In 2021, Grilli was asked, in cooperation with Twitter design director Derrit DeRouen, to design Chirp, a new grotesk to replace Helvetica in Twitter. The reactions from Twitter users are quite damning. Jeffrey Jose compares it with GT America, which Noel Leu and Grilli cite as the source of inspiration. Free download.
