David Siegel began thinking about Graphite in 1982, looking for an architect’s handwriting with a “chiselled pencil” look, much like Tekton exemplifies the architect’s “pen and ink” metaphor. The handwriting of San Francisco architect Anthony Celis LaRosa became Siegel’s choice. With the assistance of David Berlow and Tom Rickner, Graphite was designed and released as a multiple master typeface with weight and width axes that allow for its use in a dynamic range from light condensed to black extended. Like Tekton, Graphite is an upright script with simple lines, and is usable in a large variety of informal copysetting situations.

The Adobe Originals program started in 1989 as an in-house type foundry at Adobe, brought together to create original typefaces of exemplary design quality, technical fidelity, and aesthetic longevity. Today the Type team’s mission is to make sophisticated and even experimental typefaces that explore the possibilities of design and technology. Typefaces released as Adobe Originals are the result of years of work and study, regarded as industry standards for the ambition and quality of their development.
