Secondary Font: Nitti Bold
Nitti is a monospaced typeface family in five weights that has its roots in the first sans-serif designs of the 19th century — the Grotesques. Originally a British invention, Grotesques gained massive popularity in mainland Europe and also became widespread in early 20th century USA where they were commonly referred to as ‘Gothic’. The quirky and often idiosyncratic shapes of these early English sans-serifs lend them the humanity and warmth still appreciated among many graphic designers today.
Nitti is named after Francesco Raffaele Nitto, better known as Frank ‘The Enforcer’ Nitti, one of the henchmen of Al Capone. The family is part of a bigger collection of Grotesque-inspired typefaces that also includes a poster version called Stanley and a proportional version called Nitti Grotesk.
