Greek calligraphic structure enhanced by a century of lessons from geometric type design.
As an addition to Veronika Burian and José Scaglione’s Postea Latin, the Postea Greek font family is a take on geometric typefaces, reshaped with the right attributes for setting paragraphs and headings, and perfect for branding and text use. The designers for this multiscript extension are Veronika Burian, Tom Grace, and Yorlmar Campos, with consultancy by Irene Vlachou. The classic curves and purposeful details keep its individuality intact while allowing it to fit an incredible range of design needs. Because of these qualities, Postea Greek makes normal reading in paragraphs a cinch and your branding memorable.
Compared to midcentury attributes of restraint and a sparse appearance, Postea Greek’s deliberate play between character widths injects liveliness and distinction into its personality. Another nice surprise awaits: spacing for the Hairline weight is tighter for optimal use in large headings and titles, while the regular weights have the expected, slightly looser spacing for text.
Postea Greek is opinionated and has modern stylistic sets with softer, specially-designed alternate characters. Wallpaper-worthy geometric symbols, arrows, and ornaments are packed into SS01 and SS09. For the ultimate in customisation and glamour, the second and third stylistic sets are where geometric and typographic alternates are found.
Postea Greek’s 14 total styles (seven upright with matching italics) or two variable fonts are accompanied by an all-new family of icons in three weights, for which we developed a new, easy activation. Simply bookend the desired icon name with colons (:arrowUp: :firstAid: :aid: :chargingStation:), making sure to capitalise each word after the first word, then select it and activate SS10. Icons include wayfinding, social interface, and sanitary precautions like face masks, thermometers, hand washing, and much more.
Postea Greek is resilient in the number of ways the family can be used, and its recognisable characters make it a prime selection for branding, signage, corporate typefaces, and magazines. The entire five-script Postea family (Arabic, Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, and Latin, now including Vietnamese) brings simplicity and impact together nicely, invoking a balance between a constructed and human feel while brushing away the dust from a century of derivatives. Beginning with midcentury virtues, Postea Greek is the rational response for text — a lyrical take on geometric sans serifs.
