A lively caricature of a midcentury monstrous, Guzzo is a fresh addition to the Monotype Library. Rather eccentric and full of surprises, its unmistakable peculiarity can be found on closer inspection, originating from information proudly borrowed from brush lettering and calligraphy.

The vast array of weights and style can take you through any design space, from the condensed weights squeezing in bigger headlines or dense blocks of text with the condensed variety, to try out small point sizes, labels or packaging with the prolonged cut. Nevertheless, Guzzo's real appeal is probably best revealed through its wonderfully lively shapes, its uncommon 'laid-back italics' feature cursive kinds and a backslant. The different stylistic sets allow you to decide what you make from Guzzo, with several sets of alternate glyphs steering it in any instructions you want.

Guzzo is a happy-go-lucky character, and has a warm, simple and painterly quality that - at a glimpse - might be unrecognizable as a typeface. It can almost pass for hand-lettering. Guzzo pairs incredibly well with scripts and slab typefaces, and feels most at home in situ with toys, packaging, menus, broadcasting, animations and retailing! Guzzo encourages you to show up the silliness and is for designers who wish to imitate hand-painted and casual motifs.

Taking its name from American artist Jeremy Pinc, aka the painter Guzzo Pinc, the typeface channels the wacky, funny and poignant qualities of his paintings - with goofy characters, loosely painted geometric kinds and brilliant colors.

For this mid century, authentic, sentimental typeface - the story is actually what you make of it.
