First named Grey Journal, together with Grey
Text and Grey Display, Ultra Black was conceived as part of the Grey Press. It started out as a communal
fascination with Stef Cuypers for the handwriting on the headline posters of the
Standard. To retain it’s analogue qualities, we digitized multiple glyphs for
each letter. Using a special Opentype script these appear to be randomly
inserted. When typing HHHH, each H will be different from the next.
