History is always in sight; it is constantly being reconsidered and reformulated in the context of now. We see approaches to art, fashion, textiles, homewares, furnishings … not to mention music, graphics and everything else that culturally enriches our daily lives, revisited and made anew for today.

Address Sans indulges in the spirit and aesthetics of mid-century Modern – Italian industrial design, sleek coffee makers, stylish cars, seductive jazz pressed on vinyl – with a charm and charisma that defies time. It evokes history but is decisively created for today.

Its design, in reality, is rooted in the condensed structure and block modulation of early 1950s German lettering intended for use in street signage, but when we started to work on the various weights and widths, the result was a set of fonts in a style similar to the typographic work developed by Butti and Novarese in the 60s. The multitude of potential applications for Address Sans then became clear.

In a range of 3 widths and 8 weights each, Address Sans includes little verses, true italics, small caps and numerous alternative signs for a total of 48 fonts. The result is a functional typeface that is effortlessly seductive, with geometric features and design details that ooze cool, and take it away from mere reinterpretation towards typographic forms that adapt perfectly for contemporary use.

Type Designer


Sudtipos was founded in 2002 as a collective of graphic designers passionate about type. Since the beginning, Sudtipos has delivered typographic solutions to design challenges in product packaging, advertising, and corporate identity. Over the years the group has grown in number, skills, and influence – Sudtipos faces have appeared in high-profile campaigns for Coca-Cola and Levi’s, and in the pages of The New York Times, and the group has created custom faces for international clients such as The History Channel and C&A. But the original vision of Sudtipos remains: to translate the aesthetics of culture and commerce into technically sophisticated typefaces that help creative professionals create work that impresses clients, attracts customers, and builds brands.

Sudtipos typefaces have received awards from the Type Directors Club, Communication Arts, Tipos Latinos, and others.
