Tusker Grotesk was developed by Lewis McGuffie and published by Lewis McGuffie Type. Tusker Grotesk includes 30 styles and family bundle alternatives. p > Tusker Grotesk is a headline typeface developed for robust and high-impact usage. The initial inspiration for Tusker originated from postwar typefaces like Haettenschweiler, Effect and Helvetica Inserat which utilize really high x-heights.

Other influences in the condensed end of the Tusker family are old grotesques like Folio Extra Condensed and Stephenson Blake Elongated Sans No. 1 with their flat terminals and closed-up apertures. Then as the widths in Tusker grow, the lettering takes some more inspiration from gothic style sans such as Inland Type's Title Gothic No. 8, while keeping the optical weight established in the narrow end of the family.

Each width set is duplexed, stackable and is ideal for headlines, logos and strong attention-grabbing editorial style. Tusker has extended latin protection perfect for western, central and eastern European languages.
