Hype lives up to its name. An energetic attempt to blow past previous sans’ descriptive words of massive, large, extensive, super and others. Hype transcends the everyday marketing terms and rests solely atop them all with a jaw-dropping current offering of 396 fonts that spans 18 widths and 11 weights. Insert a long pause and mic drop here, because nothing compares.
Hype’s bombastic approach meant supplying everything it could within each typeface: including small caps, yes small caps, a full numeral set that includes inferiors and superiors, super- and subscripts, full fraction support, case-sensitive forms, stylistic alternate letterforms, and more while touting a full Western, Central and South Eastern European character support.
Embracing a Univers-esque bravado and a willingness to push the envelope, Hype leaves even more room to grow. No corners were cut, no shortcuts taken with a focus on sensible, efficient letter construction and functional reliability that ignores any one classification and instead looks to form an amalgam of classic sans styles influenced by wood type, movie showcards, and urban industrial letterforms.
