A proposal for a type system; an exploration in craft; an experimentation of sorts – Graye is a continuous search for cohesiveness amongst diversity.
Graye (Gray + Grave) is a concise family inspired by carved inscriptions which shares a cohesive gray value across its styles. It aims to be compact yet eclectic, catering towards the design of simple characteristic layouts. Its sans, serif and italic variants are all derived from different origins and differ in their skeleton structures. To push the idea of a concise family, it also explores the concept of an expressive shared italic. Graye comes in 5 cuts – Sans Regular, Sans Heavy, Serif Regular (includes Cyrillic), Serif Heavy, and a shared Italic Regular.
