My favourite supermarket can have a better branding now

I was always been a loyal customer of the greatest retail trader in Italy: coop. Everytime I see their product I think “they deserve more”. So, in 2019 I designed the key factor behind their rebranding: the variable font Seitu™

A font derived by the coop logo

This variable font is my typographic interpretation and development of the legendary coop logotype designed by Albe Steiner and later improved by Bob Noorda in 1985

Seitu font designed by Fabrizio Schiavi and the Coop Italia logo designed by Bob Noorda

Consistency, dynamism and readability

The diagonals inthe letter c and p of the logo are key details in the development of the font family. A good way to mark the entire typeface and create dynamism in texts. The first goal anyway is the readability. Very very important!

At the moment the coop staff ignored this project but I never lost the hope to one day see  my Seitu™ on the shelves of its supermarkets.

    Seitu is very readable at all sizes, probably the most readable of the fonts installed in my Mac… and it’s Variable!!
