Type Inspiration: Forza

04.12.12

Like all square sans serifs, Forza appears to be made from an abridged kit of lines and curves. Hoefler & Frere-Jones outfitted the typeface with a much larger and more sophisticated visual vocabulary, extending to a broad range of weights, from a crisp Thin to a muscular Black, with matching italics throughout. Forza references a century’s worth of good ideas, from sources as disparate as early engraved postage stamps, and enamel signs on Italian railways.
