    Frankie, a grunge typeface
A grunge typeface
Frankie was born in 1992 at a time when Macs were becoming ever more popular and when each of us was to some extent going through a phase of experimenting with design and typography. Frankie is the result of a process of erosion, photocopying, scanning and digitisation based on the Franklin Gothic type designed by Morris Fuller Benton and published in 1904. An experiment that has become in one of the more “wasted” typefaces around Europe. Barcelona, 1992. Designed with Juan Dávila.
