      The university’s wayfinding system uses a custom version of Tephe. Unlike the retired retail font, Tephe HKB also features a lowercase and accents that are attached dir­ectly to the base glyphs. It is exclusive to the HKB.

      In October 2017, Verena Gerlach released FF Sizmo, a revised and expanded family that replaces both PTL Tephe and the related PTL Vielzweck, and combines them into one family. The family comes in upright, italic and Line styles, each in 5 weights. FF Sizmo Line includes the underlines that are featured here, too.
