Grumpy is a heavy, high-contrast serif typeface designed by Tomi Haaparanta and released through Suomi Type Foundry in 2011. The design of Grumpy was inspired by ITC Grouch, a typeface that was originally adapted from the heavier weights of Caslon. Grumpy contains six optical variants with over 2000 hand-adjusted kerning pairs to give it that “tight, not touching” style that was popular in the 1970s.
