Fritz is based on various pieces of handlettering done in the early 20th century by Ozwald Cooper, a type designer and lettering artist best known for the ubiquitous Cooper Black. Galapagos Typefoundry's Maiandra and Robusto are based on the same pieces of lettering. We're all trying to get into Oz Cooper's head My interpretation is softer and more text-oriented, I think. In retrospect, I wish I made the italic more cursive and didn't follow the rules of the text weights so closely when drawing the Robusto. It would be helped by shorter ascenders and descenders and a larger x-height.
