Actually, there is no font so call “My favorite font”. In my opinion, font is equipment in which you can use or handle it in right time, right place, and right event. It only expresses the “Beauty” or full meaning since it matches our idea. However, in this writing, the font I will write about is Futura. Following to my research, it quite special I think, the history, the geometry design that related to circle; triangle; square; curve…
Back to the past, Futura was born in period 1924-1926 by Paul Renner and in 1927 Futura became commercial font. It belongs to Geometric Sans-Serif typeface. For the original published, the Futura type-family including Light, Medium, Bold, and Bold Oblique font. Then gradually from 1930 to 1955, Book, Book Oblique, Extra Bold, and Extra Bold Italic font that relate to Futura came out by Edwin W. Shaar and Tommy Thompson. And other members we can count are Regular, Light Oblique, Light Condensed, Book Bold, Medium Oblique, Medium Condensed, Bold Condensed, Semibold, Semibold Italic, Extrabold Condensed, Inline, Display and Black.
The interesting thing is when Futura was released; it automatically became representative visual elements of the Bauhaus design style due to its design based on geometric sharps, although Paul Renner had no relation with Bauhaus.
