Font Weights:

Gradualism is an experimental typeface exclusive to RipeType. Gradualism was created for logotype and heading text in particular – with its strong and unique style. It is distinctly dynamic, and at its best at larger sizes.

Inspired by nature, gradualism’s form is unique and one to be remembered.
