The Zukunft type family is an homage to classic didone typefaces. Though using traditional proportions, the design explores a more futuristic approach; the letters overall seem more digitally created, featuring triangular serifs, right angles and strict horizontal lines.
Besides the Regular style, suitable for body copy, the Italic brings back some flow and warmth, making it a good decorative companion. And then there's the display cut; with a high contrast and sharp serifs this is the perfect choice for headlines and posters.
Compared to the rest of our designs, Zukunft is a rather conventional but versatile typeface you can probably use for a wider range of projects. Wether short paragraphs, big titles or branding work, the diverse styles will fit and ensure a unique look. Don't forget to use the numerous alternates for letters and figures, as well as special symbols and italic capital swashes to make use of the full potential of Zukunft!
Zukunft comes with useful standard and decorative discretionary ligatures, capital swash letters (for the Italic) and some alternate letter forms. Besides that you'll get contextual alternates, case sensitive forms and a variety of figures for usage in your editorial designs.
Covering the Latin-Extended-A Unicode range and including some additional accented glyphs, Zukunft supports most modern Latin languages. Plus, Cyrillic script with localized forms is supported — therefore you can use Zukunft in up to 250 languages!
