Greycliff CF Font Field Guide

Best Practices

Greycliff CF is versatile and designed to hold up to almost any use-case. It has been used in user interfaces, on-screen text, signage, and logotypes. Bolder weights, at large sizes and with a hint of tighter tracking, create a stunning effect. Lighter weights play well in print, with Greycliff CF’s moderately high x-height and open shapes that read well.



Nine weights of roman designs, each with a complementary oblique, for a total of 18 typefaces.

Greycliff CF is an original design by Connary Fagen, born during experimentation with original lettering for a client logotype. It was set aside and revisited later as a complete typeface with nine weights. Greycliff’s lightly rounded edges and corners were then implemented to soften the effect of its simple geometric construction.



Geometric yet relaxed, Greycliff’s low contrast design, with a somewhat tall x-height, holds up well at small and medium sizes. In bolder weights, usage for headlines is also recommended.
