Swiss styling collides with the unexpected construction and wonky imperfectionism of 20th century American wood type in Lucas Sharp’s monument to Adrian Frutiger: Sharp Grotesk. With its exuberant personality, ink traps, and incredible range of moods, Sharp Grotesk is a brand new and uniquely American perspective on the genre of the multi-width grotesk. Originally beginning as hand drawn poster lettering in 2011, Sharp Grotesk eventually grew to encompass a massive range of 21 widths in 7 weights of roman & italic, for a total of 249 fonts.
