About this font family
Futura is a modern bilingual typeface designed and created by two professional groups, each expert in their own field. One of the great names in typography, Futura is a geometric sans-serif typeface originally designed by Paul Renner for the Bauer Type Foundry in 1928. Futura is timelessly modern. In 1928 it was striking, tasteful and radical and today it continues to be a popular typographic choice to express strength, elegance and clarity. The Futura URW family has sixth weights for each - Latin and Arabic - variant (Extra Bold, Bold, Demi, Medium, Book and Light). Boutros Futura was designed to work harmoniously with the URW-Latin whilst respecting Arabic calligraphic and cultural rules. Futura is an exceptionally versatile typeface, suitable for headlines, sub-headings and body text at a smaller point sizes. It is a good choice for space-sensitive environments. Futura works well for short blocks of text copy and captions. The commemorative plaque left on the Moon in July 1969 features text set in Futura. Futura is a Registered Trademark of Bauer Types S.L.
