I Love Futura
click image
for large view
One of the most used sans serif typefaces, Futura is synonymous with efficiency and modernity, with its clean, even strokes, geometric shapes and lack of decorative flourishes.
I Love Futura (1) I Love Futura (5)
I Love Futura (3) I Love Futura (2)
I Love Futura (4) I Love Futura (6)
Created in the 1920s, it shows the influence of German Bauhaus, and has inspired an army of geometric typefaces in the years since its inception. Futura’s iconic status and simplicity have inspired the designers in this text to push for innovation.

About the Series:
I Love Type Series
Every designer has a favorite type­face. More than a vehicle to transport words onto a page, a typeface can express taste, style, opinion, and attitude. The typeface a designer uses — and how he has manipulated it — reveals the personality and aesthetic of the designer himself.
Using a selection of high-quality graphic design work for books, promotional materials, signage and more, each book in the “I Love Type” series highlights a single typeface and its prevalence in the design community. This narrow focus lends itself to an in-depth study of each typeface — how the same font can be altered to create different moods and generate an entirely original effect.

I Love Type Series (vol.4)
I Love DIN
Featuring fluent curves and strokes without serifs, DIN, released by Frankfurt’s D Stempel AG foundry in 1923, is minimal in appearance, bold, striking, and highly legible.

I Love Type Series (vol.3)
I Love Bodoni

I Love Type Series (vol.2)
I Love Avant Garde
First designed by Herb Lubalin as a logo, not a typeface, Avant Garde has had a tumultuous history. Once a rep­res­ent­a­tion of innovation and singularity, its popularity in the 1970s has given it a distinctly retro connotation in modern times. more...
