Post Grotesk

Specimen Sheets / 2017

Two A4-sized printed pages featuring Josh Finklea’s Post Grotesk. Printed on Mohawk Superfine in fluorescent red, black and silver. Hole punched to fit in an A4 binder.

Josh Finklea began work on Post Grotesk in 2011 with the goal of designing a contemporary version of the traditional grotesk sans-serif for his own use. The intention was to build an amiable typeface with maximum usability and an overall sense of neutrality. Post Grotesk is informed largely by the rational tone of the more systematic grotesks, while leaning into the looseness of the less mannered examples of the genre.
