Rope Type Foundry is a makeshift foundry formed to bring together varied typographic projects by Shiva Nallaperumal and Iris Sprague. Iris focuses on her superfamily Theo. Theo is a super family based on the evolution of type styles. The family is inspired by the historical classifications in type, European Grotesque, Text, Humanist Sans, and Italian. While most super families are composed of a sans and a corresponding serif in one classification, Theo incorporates three classifications of type while sharing the same skeleton.
