Sorry for the delay in getting these posted, especially if they're your design. We're still missing a few who didn't convert their fonts to outlines. (C'mon people, read the instructions!)

10.006 is probably my favorite of this batch. What do you guys think?

Stephen Coles's picture

Futura is cool.

cchs's picture

Yeah. I was down on Futura for a while, in favor of trendier or more obscure typefaces. Now I realize the error of my ways.

Might also be nice in New Century Schoolbook, but Futura works for me

Live a few years in Germany and you will have to get a good eyedoctor, because appr. 20% of all text is set in Futura.....

Jacques

Futura is conceptually very good, but that's all

cchs's picture

Fortunately this example isn't a text setting.

Joe Pemberton's picture

Mmm, 006 is nice. Super simple. (But Futura?)

Joe Pemberton's picture

A classic, I agree wholeheartedly. (Unlike Avant
Garde or Kabel which are definitely dated.) But
Futura is sterile and bleached of any flavor --
which may make it perfect for a given job, but
perhaps, not this one.

(I had Novell (the network software company) as a client
once upon a time and set one too many words in
Futura. I need at least four years away from it before I
can look at it without twitching.)
