Granate 1 0

Granate is a typeface that harks back to the days of Constructivism. In the 1930s, every typeface tried to be as utilitarian and readable as possible. In this regard, Granate approaches the ideal by using a new approach to typography. In doing so, the typeface manages to retain its human face.

Granate 2 0

Incredibly sharp apexes

Granate 3 0

Deliberately simple shapes and absence of unnecessary elements

Granate 4 0

Vertical terminal cuts

Granate 5 0

The unique character of the typeface is created by the openness of apertures, sharpness of apexes and the twisted geometricity. Granate is at home in body text and fully reveals its potential in jobbing composition.

Replacing the regular а with its old-school version transforms the entire matter

Punica is a small genus of fruit-bearing deciduous shrubs or small trees in the flowering plant family Lythraceae. The better known species is the pomegranate (Punica granatum). The other species, the Socotra pomegranate (Punica proto-punica), is endemic to the island of Socotra. It differs in having pink (not red) flowers and smaller, less sweet fruit.

Dynamic proportions and almost complete absence of contrast make Granate a universal workhorse. It combines perfectly with any graphics, looks great in interfaces, logos and on documents, websites and packaging.
