About this font family
The future is squarish. Georg Trump knew it in 1930 when he designed City. Hermann Zapf knew it in 1952 when he designed Melior. Aldo Novarese knew it in 1962 when he designed Eurostile. Center isn’t about to argue. Based on a rounded rectangle, its geometry has been subtly refined for smoother reading. Its branches are angled in homage to OCR-A. Its terminals are gently softened. A combination of open counters, unequivocal curves, and ruler-straight vertical and horizontal strokes suit it admirably for onscreen display. This redrawn and expanded version of the best-selling text/display family now boasts nine weights, ranging from the taut, elegant Thin to the massive Ultra, each with a matching italic. Tabular figures duplex across all weights, case-sensitive forms keep punctuation in line, and an array of alternative glyphs let designers vary its mood at will. A full range of diacritics provides support for over 130 languages. And, of course, it gets on well with its more bookish sister, Center Slab.
