I'm exploring using Neufville Digital's Futura as body text in a student workbook for learning a medical-software programming language. The text is broken into short one- or two-paragraph frames accompanied by Q&A and hands-on programming exercises. These short frames are designed to be read only one at a time, followed by breaks to program or answer questions. The text is set with plenty of interline spacing, 12/18, to help clarify Futura's less sturdy measures, and it's set ragged right to protect the word and character spacing. My hope is that these choices will help protect the color and texture of the page.


I saw this cut of what I think looks like Futura on the Urban Outfitter website for Germany. I'm really having a bit of trouble identifying it. Any takers?

hey everyone, i need some help identifying the fonts on this poster, i believe the black to be a sort of futura custom? is the caroton style font also a sort of komika or artbrush custom? thanks so much!

Futura Circle Ratio

I was wondering if anyone knew the exact ratio of Futura's perfect circle lowercase "o". In other words how much larger the "outer" circle is than the "inner" to make up the weight of the letterform?

Which Futura font version is a good buy?

Hi all,
I have designed my studio logo with Adobes Futura. But i want to know which version of futura is best b4 i buy it. I tried to do the logo with Gotham. But somehow it didn't fit me. So i have made it with Futura. Esp i love the the Caps in Futura which i have used. Pls give me suggestions.Thanks in advance.


Hello. Anyone know what version of Futura this is? Well, i'm guessing this is futura..maybe not. It seems bold and the apex of the "A" is sharp not flat. Seems like all the bold versions I find are flat on top.

thanks for your help!

It has been a while since the fruitless protests against Ikea abandoning Futura.

But never say die! The web gives the power back to us, the Futura-loving people: http://just-another.com/futurizer?q=ikea.com


Helvetica, Frutiger, Futura and Garamond Typefaces Included with CorelDRAW for the First Time

WOBURN, Mass., Jun 01, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:TYPE), a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, has announced that fonts from its Helvetica(R), Frutiger(R), Futura(R) and Garamond typeface families are shipping with CorelDRAW(R) Graphics Suite X5, the newest professional graphics applications suite from Corel Corp. Comprising 32 fonts from the Linotype(R) collection, the designs have also marked their debut in any CorelDRAW product.

I'm in the process of creating a masthead for a fictional magazine, and I'm using futura extra bold – All caps.
I'm translating the title in other languages, and I want to try to make a japanese and/or korean version.
The problem is that japanese kanji/katakana/hiragana are really bound to calligraphy: is it possible, in your opinion, to create a "geometric" version of them (example: ん) and maintain legibility and recognizability?

Thank you in advance,

I need some help. Anyone recognize this typeface? It was used for the "Paris, je t'aime" poster and, recently, for Goldfrapp's latest album, Head First.

It's very similar to Futura, but take a look at the R, the P and the B. They're quite singular...

Trying to ID this for a client. It looks really similar to Futura Round. Would really appreciate it if someone could shed some light on it, Thanks!

Good evening fellow typophiles,

My name is Paul Cooley, I am third year student of Graphic Design at OTIS College of Art and Design. I have recently delved into the world of type design and am absolutely in love. The typeface below is an attempt to combine the languages of Geometric and humanist sans serif typefaces, especially focusing on attributes of Gill Sans, Futura, Akzidenz Grotesk, and Helvetica. I wanted to treat this as a sort of "dream team" of different attributes that I feel work the best in these examples and try and synthesize them into one cohesive face.

Hi there,

I'm currently looking for this font:


ATFutura Maxi-Bold

but cannot seem to get/buy it anywhere. Would anyone have any leads/links?



Hi. I swear I’m not trying to start any flames here :) It’s just that I’m not a type professional—heck, I’m probably not even a type enthusiast by the standards of this forum—and I’m having a hard time finding information on the copyright situation of famous classic fonts.
