The Airo font family has a strong character of its own with expressive shapes and generous proportions, made for eye-catching titles and brandings. An addition in the form of a text typeface to make it more usable in various usages was obvious from an early stage.
The new text subfamily carries the spirit of the display styles — most noticeable the vigor in round shapes — but in many cases it is reduced in favor of legibility. Simplified and more organic shapes, narrower proportions, less contrast and inktraps are just some of the adjustments made. Airo Text retains the exact weights and vertical metrics in order to ensure an optimal combination of both subfamilies.
But of course Airo Text can also stand alone: as a fresh text font for editorial design, for modern brandings with a contemporary touch — but also for striking purposes. Many key characters come with alternatives that reference the display styles and enable thrilling ligatures.
Airo Text is optimized for legibility and thus comes with familiar shapes. The original technoid vibe is available through various Stylistic Sets nontheless, letting you customize the Look & Feel of basic letters, some special glyphs and quotation marks. Besides Standard Ligatures and the accustomed Open-Type-Features for everyday design tasks, there are also some futuristic looking Discretionary Ligatures for striking headlines!
