Selecta Type Specimen

Regular price $25.00

Designed by Giliane Cachin, Maxitype's Selecta Type Specimen contrasts Selecta against a series of modern historical typefaces using comparative diagrams. This typographic study exposes the research on the ‘grotesque’ genre that led to the design of this typeface, an OpenType variable typeface by Daniel Haettenschwiller currently available from Maximage.

Maxitype is a collaborative platform founded in 2020 to encourage type design research. Based in Switzerland, the team includes designers and studios connected by the common aim of creating, promoting and distributing new and relevant typefaces.
