Introducing Aviano Gothic, the latest in the Aviano hyperfamily.



The Aviano collection returns, refined into a new, mid-contrast sans-serif inspired by the design and style of early 1900’s American engravers. Historically, these engravers meticulously carved lettering into copper printing plates, often using only capitals for greater impact to the reader. While taking inspiration from the past engravings, Aviano Gothic is not an attempt to revive an older design but is a distinctly one-of-a-kind form based on the structure of its Aviano predecessors for maximum interchangeability and interoperability. Aviano Gothic has been diligently honed to be sinuous and seductive, making it great for high-end work such as including jewelry, beauty, and other luxury products.







The full Aviano Gothic family presents you with six distinct weights and is full of OpenType options. Available with the face are deco alternates for replicating inscriptions and signage of the ’20s and ’30s. Style sets are offered, together with four full sets of art deco-inspired alternates, swashes, and titling, in addition to an expansive range of other alternates to help “unique-ify” your layouts. Aviano Gothic also features forty discretionary ligatures for inventive typographic compositions. Begin planning your work with Aviano Gothic by looking at these options in the instructive .pdf brochure.

OpenType-able applications, including Quark or the Adobe suite, allow for the comprehensive benefit of the ligatures and alternates. This typeface also features the glyphs to aid a broad number of languages.

Several variants have been made to extend the usefulness of the typeface, and it makes for a fine substitute for Copperplate, ITC Blair or Engravers Gothic. As referenced, too, Aviano Gothic also pairs perfectly with the other members of the Aviano collection, including the original Aviano, Aviano Serif, Aviano Sans, Aviano Didone, Aviano Flare, Aviano Future, Aviano Wedge, Aviano Contrast, and Aviano Slab.

Grenale, a haute couture sans-serif.

The elegant Grenale brings a new look to the classic didone. This shimmering sans-serif family with its mild deco shades alters the typical serifs and terminals of the classic style to form a gracefully eye-catching, high-contrast font.

While high-contrast, sans serif forms tend to disappear in the copy, Grenale’s meticulously designed features exhibit proper balance in the spacing and in the thorough improvements of its contours. The rigorous consideration given these details leaves a delicate typeface that doesn’t get washed out in certain applications. Its pure, polished, geometric structure has a glamorous sensitivity, drawing heavily from the inspiration of the haute couture influence.

Grenale’s thin weights are simple but vibrant--elegant forms that naturally lend themselves to high fashion journals, high-end branding, and other five star applications.
