Airo Introduction

Airo Styles Overview

About Airo

Airo was born out of the aesthetics of two single letter sketches, the upper- and lowercase “g”. These had a generous width, a monolinear stroke with high contrast links and were an overall mixture of sturdy and constructed but lively appearance.

These principles and looks were then turned into a full characterset and expanded by a black weight, further working out the characteristics of Airo. During the process accompanying mono styles seemed like a natural way to put a focus on the contrast of technoid and organic; and the play with the widths, e.g. resulting in turning the extra wide “o” into a condensed letter.

The most impact you get setting Airo in big sizes, no matter the medium. With several ligatures and alternates, wordmarks and phrases get extra particularity and charme. Nonetheless, you can set small paragraphs too or combine it with a neutral typeface of your choice!
