Antenna Antenna

The calm and deliberation of Antenna offers further development to the excitement and mobility that we have come to expect from the hand of Cyrus Highsmith. Beyond the tension of his normal line, Highsmith places a new emphasis on the repeat and variation of counter shapes with the spaces between characters. Antenna’s rhythms project business-like subtleties through seven weights in four widths, with matching italics.

Bureau Grot Bureau Grot

Bureau Grot is now accepted as the essence of tooth and character in an English nineteenth-century sans. The current family was first developed by David Berlow in 1989 from original specimens of the grotesques released by Stephenson Blake in Sheffield. These met with immediate success at the Tribune Companies and Newsweek, who had commissioned custom versions at the behest of Roger Black. Further weights were designed by Berlow for the launches of Entertainment Weekly and the Madrid daily El Sol, bringing the total to twelve styles by 1993. Jill Pichotta, Christian Schwartz, and Richard Lipton expanded the styles further, at which point the family name was shortened to Bureau Grot.
