The Aviano series returns with a vigorous and futuristic sans serif. Aviano Future’s powerful squared forms lend intensity and authority to your designs. Aviano Future’s extended forms give the face strength and muscle. Aviano Future is a versatile new addition to the Aviano titling series.
Aviano Future comes in six different weights with “fast” Fasts and is packed with OpenType features. Want to use more traditional rounded forms? Need swash forms? Art Deco alternates? Aviano Future includes 390 alternate characters. Eleven style sets are available, two sets of art deco inspired alternates, small forms, tough swash, constructivist titling and traditional stylistic alternates.
