STF ELEGANZA (Tall) ― Contemporary geometric humanist sans
A font style, that while simplified by old tradition, saw new light by modern sophistication.

It comes in a solid medium weight that is very suitable for body style text with good readability, but it does perfect clean headlines or ads as well.

The goal was to make a clean but somewhat more contemporary and playful take on a 'Grotesque' sans-style.

In an attempt to break away from the traditional trend of Grotesque type designs which evolved more around pure geometric shapes and aim for perfect circular, triangular or square shaped letterforms, that in return give many of them a somewhat harsch and featureless mechanical appearance, I choose to try and achieve the opposite, aiming for a softer, friendlier and more humanized feeling instead.
Dimensions: (in grid units)
X-Height:                   2 .625
Cap-Height:               3 .125
Em:                             3 .5

Brick Size filter:           2 : 2
This is the 'Tall'-style in the 'ELEGANZA' typeface family. This version somewhat strays away from the other two variation instances. Whereas the other versions had a simplified look, this version aims for the oposite and has a much more rich and diverse typographic design. Countless subtle extra little details have been incorporated into the design. The tall and condensed style provides a luxurity look. The main purpose for this version was to provide another level of visual depth and flair into your layout.

Some of the main differences made in this 'Tall'-style are the more complex geometry, other X-Height to Cap-Height ratio, extra characters and the introduction of optical compensations.
