Typeco has releases it's first font family -- Glyphic Neue.

Glyphic Neue is a display family that was inspired by the Op Art style of
lettering in the United States that ran rampant in many photo type houses in
the 1960's and 1970's. The Glyphic Series from the Franklin Photolettering
group was an influence and spring board for this family of fonts, hence
it's name.

But Glyphic Neue departs from its unicase Franklin influence in several
ways. Firstly the designer created both upper and lower case forms. The
lowercase has been designed with barley protruding ascenders and descenders
and with an x-height equivalent to the cap height, so that upper and lower
can be exchanged indiscriminately for a quirky effect. Some of the letters
take a cue from the original Glyphic series but many have been redesigned
entirely to fit the designers vision. The italic forms differ enough from
the upright version making it almost an entirely different display alphabet.

Glyphic Neue is a versatile display family of 6 fonts -- 3 widths, each with
an accompanying italic that look equally at home when used on a party flier
or a sports team visual identity.

Grieshaber, as well as a provider of typographic services and solutions.
