Futura Poster

    Futura is a geometric sans-serif typeface designed in 1927 by Paul Renner. It was designed as a contribution on the New Frankfurt-project. It is based on geometric shapes that became representative of visual elements of the Bauhaus design style of 1919-33.
    In designing Futura, Renner avoided the decorative, eliminating nonessential elements, but used his knowledge of how people perceive lines and shapes to make subtle departures from pure geometric design that allow the letterforms to seen balanced.
