ABOUT







CAST

CAST, or Cooperativa Anonima Servizi Tipografici (est. 2014, Bolzano, Italy) is a digital type foundry dedicated to the production and marketing of high quality fonts catering to specific needs, especially in the areas of branding and publishing. Their typefaces:

  • Divenire (2014). By Molotro / Luciano Perondi. Divenire is derived from an earlier custom typeface designed for the Partito Democratico (Italian Democratic Party), which uses it for political communications. For the information of non-Italians---this is not Berlusconi's party.
  • Dic Sans (2014, Luciano Perondi). This elliptical sans was inspired by Aldo Novarese's Eurostile. It has its own idiosyncracies, and comes with a gorgeous Dic Sans Extra Bold weight (2014). On the nomenclature---French are allowed to use Sans Dic, and Americans are permitted to typeset with Extra Bold Dic.
  • Brevier (2014). Riccardo Olocco's typeface was designed for setting long texts in small or very small type sizes---the name Breveir refers to 8 point size in ancient times.
  • Gramma (2014, Riccardo Olocco). A compact temporary sans with large x-height.
  • Brasilica (2015). By Rafael Dietzsch, based on his graduation typeface in 2012 in the MATD program at the University of Reading. This Latin / Greek typeface family with sufficient diacritical support of most Brazilian indigenous languages. It is a serifed typeface but has matching sans styles. My own first reaction to this typeface was sturdy. Brasilica won an award at Tipos Latinos 2014.
  • Macho Modular (2015). By Luciano Perondi. Macho was originally designed in 2010 for MAN (Museo d'Arte Provincia di Nuoro) and is based on the idea of modular widths of the 20th-century typesetting systems, as required by the Olivetti Margherita and the hot-metal Linotype machine.
  • Saffran (2007, by Erasmo Cuifo and Alessio D'Ellena; published in 2015 by CAST).
  • Zenon (2014, for Latin, Bengali, Greek and Cyrillic, by Riccardo Olocco). Zenon is Riccardo's graduation typeface in the MATD program at the University of Reading, UK. He writes: is a sum of different styles, from Francesco Griffo to Granjon, from modern typefaces to the first sketches of Times New Roman. Zenon is an apparently Renaissance revival with modernish proportions. A closer look reveals that it is a typographic potpourri. Zenon was published by CAST in 2015.
  • Sole Serif (2016). A text typeface family by Luciano Perondi, who writes: Sole Serif is a newspaper face with features relating to book typography. Inspiration from Francesco Griffo's romans was adapted to resist the rough usage typical of newspaper printing without any loss of quality. Sole Serif is available in an extensive range of cuts including extra bold and ultra thin. With its big x-height, short ascenders and a roundish and wide italic for text and titles, it has all the attributes of a newspaper face. Nonetheless, details like the inclined axis, calligraphic terminations, Renaissance proportions and a refined but slightly mannered design, all evoke the book rather than the daily paper. In 2018, Luciano Perondi and Riccardo Olocco designed the companion typeface Sole Sans. It was originally designed for the leading Italian financial newspaper Il Sole 24 ore.
