Serifa was designed by Adrian Frutiger for the Bauer foundry in 1967. The letterforms are based on those of Frutigers earlier sans serif design, Univers. Square, unbracketed serifs have been added, making this a slab serif (or Egyptian) typeface. Usually, slab serif types are blocky and difficult to read in text, but Serifa has humanistic forms that are highly readable for both text and display applications such as headlines, captions, or corporate logos.
