SuperTipo Veloz was orginally created by the Catalan designer Joan Trochut Blanchard and produced at José Iranzo foundry in Barcelona 1942. The "system" consisted of several series or modules of building blocks from which one could construct any number of alphabetic variations. Additional complementary forms like swashes, tails, flourishes were also available. It was digitalized and revived by Andreu Balius and Àlex Trochut in 2004. This work has been awarded an Certificate of Excellence in Type Design from the Type Directors Club (New York, 2005)
