Grim is an ultrabold display family with 6 styles. Originated as an experiment with reduction, it is legible without compromise and has its own unique character, marked by generous shapes and unusual appearance.
The Grim family ranges from Grim Pure (which was radically reduced to the essentials) to Grim Stencil, where the fine pylons are added to the counters. Grim Counter is a more detailed version of the Grim Regular, with more traditional forms. Grim and Grim Counter Regular each have a rounded cut. All 6 styles are fully compatible with each other.

Grim is best suited for blocky headlines with impact. Set against a serious serif font, it gives the page high contrast and fun factor.
The reduced shapes call for a poster use! The rest of the motivational posters can be seen in the flickr gallery.
Every member of the Grim family comes with matching arrows, triangles, hands, smilies and a heart. These glyphs can also be accessed with simple codes (like for the heart).
